Budget travellers; fed up forking out for a boring beige box? Tubotel, a unique concept hotel in Langkawi, just droppePagesd a colourful bombshell on Sungai Chenang.
Inspired by Austrian Dasparkhotel, by architect Andy Strauss, this abstract hotel where you live in a concrete tube, takes minimalist accommodation to the maximum.
The barrels are frothing with a cocktail blend of relaxation and excitement. Chill out in your spout, admiring the immediate sea views, but don’t get tunnel vision! Tubotel has endless eye-candy to boggle the brain, a funky social scene, and a diversity of entertainment
3 salt-water Jacuzzis, giant day-bed sun-loungers, full café, bar and restaurant, all on the water’s edge, make for a place you won’t want to leave. Activities including Jet-skiing, Cruises, Jungle Trekking and lots more can be organised from the comfort of your cask. But if you want to take a 5 minute walk to the tourist hotspot, Cenang Beach, golden sand and duty-free shopping awaits.
All the tubes come with a dressed king-size bed, ample storage underneath, light, plug sockets, fan and a free Kick-Ass Langkawi Sunset. There is no need for A/C since these enormous concrete pipes have excellent thermal qualities, but there are cube rooms available, with air-con, for those who aren’t ready to dive into the duct.
Your holiday in now in the pipeline….
