Tubotel Langkawi

Funky beachside cocoons

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4 stars

Easily the most unique accommodation on Langkawi, Tubotel sticks to its catchphrase -- "Don't be square!" -- by offering cylindrical "rooms" made from circular drainage pipes.

These are closed at one end and fitted with double glass doors and a window with stunning Andaman Sea views at the other. Each tube is outfitted with its own funky mural and comes with an adjacent seafront veranda. Leg room is a tad sparse, but a tube is an unforgettable place to stay, and they're among the cheapest beachfront options on Langkawi.

Air-con is available for an extra fee, but the thick concrete walls’ insulation and provided fans keep the temperatures quite comfortable. Clean and ample bathrooms are shared among the tube dwellers.

If being round isn't for you, Tubotel also offers a limited number of non-waterfront/non-drainpipe rooms, which offer air-con standard and more space. The resort has a laidback surfer-style atmosphere, and on-site facilities include a community deck with plush loungers, saltwater jacuzzi pools (don't miss "bikini hour"), a restaurant and bar offering reasonably priced meals, free Wifi, free bicycles, a pool table and satellite TV.

Along with the dreamy sunsets, the location also offers convenience -- Tubotel is within walking distance of Cenang beach and an assortment of shops, mini-marts, restaurants and other markers of civilisation — including a mall, if you so require. Note that discounted rates are usually available through
