BY USING OUR SERVICES OR MAKING A BOOKING FOR A STAY AT AN ORMOND GROUP HOTEL OR BY STAYING AT ANY ORMOND GROUP HOTEL YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH THE USE OF OUR SERVICES OR YOUR BOOKING.
Your contract is with OMT Hotels Sdn Bhd (Registration No. 200501035610 (717756-M)), ECML Hotels Sdn Bhd (Registration No. 201701022399 (1236565-X)) , OHG Services Sdn Bhd (Registration No. 201101018275 (946411-T)) (as applicable) including their respective franchisees, associates, related companies, subsidiaries and affiliates who operate hotels under the Tune Hotels, Ormond and/or MoMo’s brand (“Hotel”) and its employees, officers, agents, suppliers and vendors (collectively referred to as “Ormond Group Hotels”, “Ormond Group”, “we”, “our” and “us”).
In these Terms and Conditions, the use of the words “you” or “guest(s)/Guest(s)” means any and all persons for whom a Hotel room is booked.
For Hotel bookings and stays in the United Kingdom, please refer to our terms and conditions for the respective jurisdictions.
Our Services are not directed toward children under 18 years of age nor does Ormond Group knowingly collect information from children under 18. If you are under 18, please do not submit any personal information to us.
Bookings for the Hotel may be made online at the relevant Website.
Depending on the type of booking, full payment may be required at the time of booking. We accept payment by Visa or Mastercard credit/debit cards, Paypal, Alipay or online bank transfers for most of our Hotels. The available payment options are displayed during the booking process on our Website. A payment processing fee may apply.
For the payment transactions from our Website handled and processed by Notel Management Sdn Bhd for and on behalf of the Ormond Hotel Group, Notel Management Sdn Bhd will assist the Ormond Hotel Group with customer support for issues related to payments such as dispute management, refunds, cancellations and returns if applicable. The Terms and Conditions for payment of such transactions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Malaysia without reference to Malaysia conflict of laws rules, and any dispute shall exclusively be submitted to the competent courts in Malaysia.
Once your booking has been successfully completed, a confirmation in respect of each room booked will be sent to the email address provided by you in your registered account (“Booking Confirmation”). If you do not receive your Booking Confirmation(s) within twenty-four (24) hours from the time of booking, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You MUST produce your Booking Confirmation(s) upon check-in at the Hotel, together with your original valid photo identification document (national registration identity card, passport, driver’s licence or other identification card or document as the Hotel may require).
The ‘Guest’ named in the Booking Confirmation must be the person staying at the Hotel otherwise we reserve the right not to allow the relevant person who is checking in to proceed with his or her stay at the Hotel.
Bookings that have been made and paid with a credit card within five (5) days prior to the check-in date will require presentation of the credit card used for payment of the booking during or post check-in. We reserve the right to require for the same credit card that has been used to make the booking for purposes of any payments to be made during check-in. Failure to do so may delay your check-in process.
At all times during the booking process, you will be advised to ensure the accuracy of your booking details (guest details, stay dates, room types, room rates, number of guest(s)). Ormond Group will not be responsible or liable for errors in booking details. We will not be under the obligation to refund or modify the booking should you fail to give us reasonable notice of any error in the booking details prior to the check-in date.
Bookings are accepted subject to room availability.
BEST RATE GUARANTEE
Book a room directly on our website - thechowkit.com, by phone or e-mail to get the lowest rate available.
If you find a lower rate for the same room and dates as your booking, please send us a screenshot with details including website and booking info where you found the lower rate to email@example.com. We will review and verify the information provided and if confirmed, we will provide you 10% off your booking.
Room rates shown on our Website are charged on a per room per night basis, and depending on the room package which is being offered on our Website, the rates stated in our Website may be inclusive or exclusive of meals and add-ons.
Our prices are based on a ‘dynamic pricing’ model and are set by individual Hotels depending on their booking patters, and will therefore fluctuate depending on supply and demand. The price of your reservation will be confirmed at the time of booking and shall not be amended in case of rate fluctuation between the date you booked your stay and your arrival.
Room rates are inclusive of service tax or service charge, (as applicable) and/or other similar charges or tax subject to the requirements of the country or location where the Hotel is located. These will be charged at the prevailing rates and are payable in the currency country where the Hotel is located.
Room rates and details are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change without notice.
We reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. We will do as soon as we become aware of the error.

Malaysian citizens and permanent residents with MyPR cards are exempted from the payment of TTx. TTx will be collected at check-in and is payable by cash or credit card. TTx is excluded from room rates.

Smoking is prohibited in any part of the Hotel premises including but not limited to Hotel rooms, except in any smoking area(s) designated by Ormond Group (if any). Failure to comply with this policy shall entitle us to terminate your booking and stay at the Hotel at our sole discretion and you must leave the Hotel immediately without compensation or reimbursement. You shall be liable for any costs, loss or damage to the Hotel room, premises or property, or incurred by Hotel guests or third party, arising from your failure to comply with this policy and Ormond Group reserves the right to charge you for any such costs, loss or damaged incurred by Ormond Group or any hotel guests or third party.
You may not bring the following into our Hotels:

We further reserves the right to ask you to leave the Hotel and remove your belongings from the room immediately if we shall, in our sole opinion, deem that you have used the Hotel room in an irresponsible manner or in a manner that will compromise the safety of, or cause damage and/or harm to the Hotel room, the Hotel premises, the other Hotel guests, our staff or any other persons or the reputation of Ormond Group, without any compensation and/or any reimbursement to you.

Unless stated otherwise by us when bookings are made, all bookings cannot be amended, modified or cancelled except for change of Guest name. Any booking cancellation or failure to arrive on the scheduled check-in date will be treated as a no-show in respect of a booking and will result in the total payment under that Booking Confirmation (including any applicable tax paid) non-refundable and will be forfeited.
Unless otherwise expressly stated, no changes or cancellation will be allowed for promotional bookings. Please read the terms and conditions of the relevant promotion carefully, which terms of promotion shall apply to the booking and shall be binding on you.
If you have any special request, you must advise us at the time of making your reservation. Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable request on to the relevant Hotel, we regret neither the Ormond Group nor the Hotel concerned can guarantee any request will be met unless we have written to you with specific confirmation that it will. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed.
Luggage storage is available only for guests currently staying with the Hotel to store their luggage or other personal belongings before check-in or after check-out, at the Hotel’s option.
Each item of luggage will be tagged with a luggage identification tag and may only be retrieved by the bearer of the tag.

Each piece of luggage must weigh no more than 30kgs and may not exceed 28″ x 22″ x 14″ in size.

Your use of the Hotel’s luggage storage facilities is at your own risk.
