While a little bit of a walk from the main beach, this place is a great little getaway. The staff were always helpful and once they rented out a scooter to us it was no issue getting anywhere. Otherwise about 20+ minutes walk in. The 'rooms' are simply a bed in a tube but this is about all we needed.... More

The room was the perfect fit. The view amazing from the room and lounge areas. (Tips: book the Ocean view room). City and restaurants a bit far to walk , but just get a taxi and 5 minutes will be there. Affordable excellent cost x pleasure. Enjoy your trip!

Love it for being a bit distant from the busy center. Friendly and attentive staff. Bike rental is available with chain and lock provided. Perfect for backpacker! A reminder for next visit if to explore Langkawi by bike: bring helmet and bicycle light as the road back to Tubotel is quite dark when night falls.

I stayed in a Seaview room.. A bit more expensive but lovely waking up to the sunrising or sun setting if you want to relax in the air conditioning inside your tube as I did my first afternoon after flying. Even if you have a garden view room the super relaxing common area shares the same paradise views. You really... More

The room is just a place for u to sleep. Stayed in Garden View room but do not dettered by the words "Garden View" becoz we still get the chance to embrace the sea view from the common area. We spent most of our time in the common longue. Only shared bathrooms and toilets available for guest of Tubotel. They... More

interesting room, large and serenity beach front lounge - wonderful background music, a bit far from center but never mind, you can easily hire a motor bike from the hotel to explore the island on your own.

Far away from city, therefore transport is needed. Staff is helpful, the breakfast comes with big portion and delicious. The scene from seaview room is nice. At night, the environment is quiet. We spend a wonderful holiday there.

The Tubotel is different in many ways and it is best to make sure you have the right expectations when going there. The rooms are not really rooms: they are just the place where you sleep! What is so great about this place is that they get the balance right: small rooms and then plenty of communal lounge/chill space. They... More

We stayed 3 nights in a tube. The room is exactly as it is advertised: a bed in a cement pipe with doors at the end. The only space for luggage is under the bed. Bed was big and comfortable. Aircon worked well - essential as the tubes can get pretty hot. The tubes were very basic - clean, the... More

We wanted to do something different with our company staff for year end and selected Tubotel because of it's unique concept and fantastic location in Langkawi. We had a great new years eve there and enjoyed every morning breakfast in the natural surrounding having a great view of the Andaman Sea and it's islands right in front of Tubotel. Franz
