Been here for 4 days and 3 nights. Everything was amazing the fact that i was travelling solo. Its only that they dont have an actual bar and restaurant. Other than that the place is simply amazing! Its just a 5 mins scooter drive to Pantai Cenang. Definitely will come back here again

The hotel is a nice and cozy place with clean and comfortable rooms. By comfortable I mean just a place to sleep because every other thing is near impossible, even changing clothes is a bit of challenge. the area has a nice view of the sea specially for the sunset and the staff are mostly very friendly. Also its not...

We stayed in the tubotel for 6 nights and it sure was a test of our resilience. TUBES: The tubes themselves are tiny. As a couple, we found it incredibly difficult to access our rucksacks and when it was raining, there was no way of standing in the tube without getting wet and the whole inside very muddy. As it...

Tubotel is a must-try place to stay. The concept is interesting but the best tube hotel rooms, to be stayed in, are those facing the sea front. I went in a month of rainy season. Lucky for me, it was not raining but cloudy. So, it was just cooling enough, coupled with good sea breeze. The room is known for...

thank u for your review. we are constantly repairing and improving tubotel, but keep in mind as close to the sea as we are it is a 24/7 job. and during the raining season it makes it a little difficult. we will keep up improving our environment and the next door construction will hopefully be completed soon. happy travels
