This place and a concept is excellent. We stayed there for a couple of nights with our girlfriend on our holiday. We got a seafront with the best view ever. The breakfast is also really good with a couple of options to choose from. And stuff is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return if have a chance

A great place to chill and relax. Close to chenang beach and tourist spots. Small rooms but large hang out spaces. Strong wind and a good place to watch the sun go down. island hopping, bike/car rental etc also available..

I must tell that tubotel is a bit overrated. I'm in no way denying the fact that choosing seaview room could give me a slightly better experience. But there's just too many downsides that I noticed. First and foremost, I was shocked to know that there was nobody in the front office for a while until a guy came to...

I review this hotel at my travel blog thegoodsonjourney.com. But here's a little review for all of you. The room is quite big for one person. Rooms have two categories, Seaview, and Garden View. Of course, the Seaview room is more expensive than Garden View, but I tell you, it's worth it. The view is spectacular. Room equipped with towels,...

Note: I visit during Equinox around mid of March which is also peak period. So it is dry and hot. Stayed in Garden View tube. Unable to upgrade to ocean view unless pay a huge amount of $$. Expansive surcharges of peak season payment. There's massive renovation happening as well which pose some degree of danger getting there and the...

Hello Mr Goh Langkawi is grateful for the many reviews you wrote especially the 3 reviews of mat chincang mountain. Next time before writing review after review, read some before you make a decision to stay at a flash-backer hotel with amazing views. You obviously booked your tubotel stay on groupon because of the very cheap offer. best regards and...

Room was okay, nothing much in the room. But the surrounding was very nice. I like the night air. There are benches and bed to hang arouund at night. Very lovely. The owner asked his staff to prepare us a breakfast tho we have missed the breakfast time. Good experience! Love the place. Little bit away from other places which...

I got a great deal for my Langkawi trip last time from Tubotel. The hotel's concept is unique! How often could you say that you have lived in an air-conditioned concrete pipe right? The owner, Alex is pretty much there to attend to you. He’s friendly and willing to apologize for the inconveniences caused. The view is to die for!...

I have mixed feelings about the Tubotel. I'll start with the good. The setting is amazing the tubes are set on rocks around a rocky man made bay no beach as I had imagined. The sunsets were gorgeous and the bar/restaurant area was really chilled and you could stay there all night if you wanted. The food was really good,...
