I like the decoration and environment in tubotel is very special and makes people feel relax. Especially u can view the sunset either from your room or in common area. However, the staffs wasnt really friendly and helpful.The cleanliness of the room and share toilet area need to be improved as well.

First and foremost this is a very unique place to stay and the tube would be even better if they were 2feet longer... Not much to be done about that I guess. But it was very awkward as a couple with two large bags after months of travelling. The shared facilities are reasonably clean and the communal area is fantastic... More

Cons- no direct beach access Pros- free daily boat trip to deserted beach with Eco pirates- collect the plastic bottles from beach. 10 min walk to beach in front of fancy resort( and pool, if you dare to!) and 15 to strip of restaurants with wide range of Asian foods. Staff at Tube friendly and helpful.

My significant other and I enjoyed our stay at Tubotel.Though the room was small it didn't really bother us much. The people there are very friendly and helpful. The toilets are shared and there were not much of light in the toilet. Gosh, I miss the breakfast at Tubotel. However, during the day they only sell different varieties of pizzas.... More

Tubotel is a unique and wonderful place to stay. The place is great on a budget..The breakfast and especially the pizzas, are very delicious! Stayed in a tube with a sea view and waking up to a soft breeze and sunshine is amazing! The tubes and shared facilities (showers and toilets) are very clean. The staff is great as well,... More

From the moment i arrived i felt very welcomed, the owner Alex even arranged for a free ride into town for me as i needed to get some toiletry supplies etc. The tubes are clean, i... More

We had a sea view tube which provide a fantastic view. The problem with the tubes is that they are so small. There is one small shelf and a couple of hooks to hang clothes on. The hotel premises are fine, there us no Jacuzzi however, I'm not sure if there ever has been. There are a couple of stagnating... More

This is one of the most unusual but nicest places I have stayed on my travels. Great owner and staff who were always very helpful. I would recommend the free Eco pirates boat trip it's a brilliant way to spend a relaxing day on a remote island. Try and get a sea view tube if your staying.

We live in KL and were looking for a cheap weekend in the sun in Langkawi. We came across this place and I wasn't too sure about sharing the facilities but as it was so much cheaper than anything else around that area and we loved the 'tube' idea, we thought we'd go for it. It was a fantastic weekend.... More
