Whenever I travel, I do like to hunt for unique places. During a recent trip to Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, we got to check out Tubotel located at Pantai Cenang.

SeaFront Tubes

Tubotel brings an exceptional experience to its patrons, being a budget hotel that is packed with thrills. The ‘ ‘rooms’ here at Tubotel are actually concrete tubes. What a novel concept indeed!

The tubes fit a comfy king sized bed and is fully air conditioned.  Complimentary tea/coffee and drinking water is available and one can store one’s luggage underneath the bed.

Inside the tube

View of the sea from inside the tube. I wouldn’t mind waking up to such a beautiful view every morning! 🙂

One of the best things about the sea view tube is that ‘million dollar’ sea view which you can enjoy from inside the tube, or chill right outside the tube with the seabreeze.

The toilets and shower rooms are on sharing basis, just a short walk away from the tubes and dorms. Washing machines are also available for guests to use.

Sun Bed

The sun beds are perhaps the most popular spots at Tubotel. Guests can soak up some sun while enjoying the view and the ocean breeze. Indeed a perfect luxurious spot to while away the day over a good book, chatting with friends, or on your phone if you’re a social media addict (hehe). However you please, the sun beds provide the ideal environment for your own way of chillin’.

More places to unwind with big comfy bean bags

I must say that the cheerful and colorful environment makes for the most amazing backdrop for vacation photos! There is a cozy and close knit feel at Tubotel which one will be hard pressed to find at larger establishments.

Now breakfast is touted as the most important meal of the day and you definitely should not miss having breakfast at Tubotel! Their breakfast sets are simple but impressive and pack a punch in terms of flavour. A thrilling surprise that I did not expect from a ‘budget hotel’.
