It was an easy taxi ride from the airport to Ambong-Ambong. The taxi dropped us off at the base of the hill (Ambong is built up the side of a hill.) Naz picked us and our luggage up, and drove us to the reception for the quick check-in, then up to our room. We were given a mobile phone to...

Stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our visit to Malaysia. Check in was really nice and the welcome drink was really refreshing. It was raining quite heavy so we were offered further refreshments while we waited. Our room was amazing. Very spacious and the bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was nice although we...

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment with our two children for 2 nights and had a terrific stay at Ambong Ambong. As mentioned in the previous posts, its the employees at this resort who really set this place apart from other hotels. They do so much to ensure that you have a fun and memorable trip. Email communication before...

We had a suite (S1) for 10 nights. Ambong itself, is wonderful. The suites are huge, and the pictures don't do them justice which is unusual. The balcony area offers a view over the Andaman sea, which glitters inbetween the jungle-like foliage. This area also offers a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the local wildlife of monkeys, giant squirrels...

We had a wonderful stay at Ambong Ambong, private, picturesque warm and friendly.... everything you could ask for. The villa's position on the canopy means we were treated to close up views of dusky leaf monkeys, macaques, monitor lizards and hornbills. An unforgettable stay!

Well where to start? The location of this resort is superb, just five minutes from the beach and the same from nearby restaurants. The owners and all staff were amazing, it takes a special level of care to make a solo traveler feel so much at home. Breakfast was superb available both in the Cafe and in the privacy of...

A perfect place for couples, with only 11 villas in the resort. Lots of privacy and quiet time. My wife and I stayed at Ambong for our 10th Wedding Annniversary and it was not a disappointment. Great service and very helpful and friendly staff. A special mention goes to Joe and Naz, the resort drivers! Ambong is near to many...

We spent 2 nights over here and really recommend this place if you are staying in the Cenang area, but don't want hang around the hectic, noisy and dirty city center. Ambong Ambong is a small retreat with only 11 rooms and a personal approach by all employees, from housekeeping to breakfast to drivers. The rooms were really well decorated,...

Arriving after 27 hours from Manchester Ambong was all we had hoped for. Welcomed warmly by Nissan and all the other staff we were shown to our studio room (3) where a light supper of local curry, flatbread and rice had been left for us. Delicious!!

Thank you for your great review of Ambong-Ambong, we know what its like after a long flight and for us it means having some good food, so we thought our guests would appreciate it too. Renting a car is one of two ways to see the REAL Langkawi, the other way is by chartering a private speed boat (coming soon)....
