Located in the middle of the rain forest is already a unique feature. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The quality of the room is what you expect at this level. And walking up and down the stairs is a good exercise. Is a must go to my opinion.

Our stay at Ambong Ambong for three nights was marked by great service, rustic cottage living, and splendid views of the rainforest within which the resort is built. Our balcony was surrounded by trees and and lush foliage which made it a welcome retreat after a day of exploring Langkawi. I appreciated the pre-packed breakfasts that they provided on the...

Stayed here with 4 of my mates over the Chinese New Year long weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. I arrived first at 9:30am as we all had different flights arriving into Langkawi and they promptly set me up to have breakfast as they got our room ready. By 11am the room was ready and...

We were five friends that stayed at Ambong Ambong over Chinese New Year. It's a great find! A real rainforest retreat surrounded by lush greenery and monkeys and birds. We had booked a two bedroom cottage that was equipped with everything we needed and had a lovely balcony with plenty of seating space. The beds were comfy as well. Although...

Aside from the great staff, which all guests appreciate very much, the other great attraction of Ambong-Ambong is how centrally located we are to all the main tourist places and yet within a tranquil rainforest alive with wildlife. Perhaps most striking to guests is the sharp contrast between the noisy and busy Pantai Cenang, just a short distance away and...

What an amazing location, you do need stamina to walk up the hill to the rooms from the reception/pool/beach/restaurants- however, offered a phone and personal taxi service from 8am - midnight. The staff were simply very happy to transport you anywhere in the local area The breakfast is available from 8-12 with most mornings being a quite late start to...

Thank you for the amazing review.The staff love to be appreciated. All of us enjoy doing our jobs, meeting so many different people from different parts of the world and looking after them. I know that sounds pretentious and even pompous but we truly enjoy making friends and building bridges in a world full of hate and dissent. Thank you...

What a great place! Nice to have stayed in a small, personal hotel. Staff were the friendliest we've ever met. Our room (a studio) was great, with awesome sea views and tree tops - with the odd monkey scurrying around! Bedroom and bathroom area was great, kitchenette, and balcony. Ambong Ambong is a little way out of town, but they...

Ambong-Ambong is rated as a 4-star hotel but its facilities and the service provided is way above that of many 5-star hotels. The hotel is built into the hill-side amongst the trees. We booked a two room cottage and a studio apartment. The cottage has a nice wide balcony while the studio room has a much better view of the...

Thank you for the appreciative review. As you correctly said we are not a 5- star establishment but we try in our own unique way to be even better. In place of the formality of a 5-star hotel, we give warm genuinely friendly Malaysian hospitality. Instead of a multiplicity of facilities, we offer solitude and the serenity of an original...

What a memorable stay we’ve had! This was our first trip to Langkawi and we found Ambong Ambong to be a big part of our wonderful time on this beautiful island. Our room was situated high up in the trees so we really felt one with nature. But not so much that it felt intimidating - with the lovely bedroom...
