I had read so many excellent reviews of Ambong Ambong that I was worried that my expectations would be too high and I would be disappointed. Happy to say that this was not the case - we loved every minute of our 6 night stay here. The buildings on this steep, wooded hillside are understated, almost unattractive, but the rooms... More

this lived up to my expectations and more...the warm welcome by all the staff, which never stopped...amazing location for brilliant accommodation with some amazing night sounds of monkeys running across the roof, hornbills at 6 am and much more...and yet all a 5 min walk down the hill to a quiet beach or range of well priced restaurants...even the tail...

We spent 4 nights in Ambong Ambong - what a lovely place! Anna, Nizam and the team were all great - a special mention for the driver who so cheerfully ferried my elderly mother up the hill many times during our stay and seemed able to turn up just when we needed him even before we called! We stayed in... More

We had a perfect 3d2n stay in ambong-ambong and experienced one of the best hospitality by Anna, Nizam and the team. Upon checking-in, Anna was kind enough to share with us some places that we can visit. We appreciated her fair review as that saved us from unnecessary traveling to some overly touristy spots. We were impressed by the view... More

Our place had a fantastic balcony with a sea view but in the forest. Also a mini kitchen and two nice rooms both with bathrooms (having been given a free upgrade). Because it's up a steep hill away from the road and the beach, the staff will ferry you up and down to our room, nearby restaurants or the beach.... More

• Thank you for the review. I agree that we are not super luxurious and we don’t claim to be. Also we do not have the trimmings of a 5-star resort such as huge pools, several restaurants and 24-hr cafes. We are a small hotel with very personal service providing luxury (but not super luxurious) rooms set in a unique... More

The narrow steep winding hill is flanked by ground covering vegetation with sky reaching trees whose branches join up at the top, rather like the tall columns and vaulting of a medieval gothic church. When the ruffling of leaves and the snapping of branches and heard then monkeys are sure to be seen feeding above. My friend and I stayed... More

Thank you for the detailed review and coming from someone who is in the tourism industry, your comments and views are especially significant. We are conscious that with only 11 rooms, we can only stay ahead by being very personal and by taking full advantage of the unique location of the site. So far most of our guests have been... More

Thank you for the review. We are especially proud to have a team of people who are committed to their job and love giving a very high level of service. I think because we are so small it is possible to give every guest personalised attention. Since you live in Kuala Lumpur which is a very short distance from us,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Ambong Ambong. This resort is set in the jungle up on top of a hill opposite Tengah beach. We stayed in suite 3, the highest suite which had beautiful views over the beaches of Tengah and Cenang. We chose to walk up and down the 255 stairs a few times, this was very manageable.... More

Ah ha, so you admit to being a lotus-eater, but that is understandable! A lot of our guests fall under the spell of the views and the peaceful ambience and spend a lot of time just sitting on the balcony taking in the views, often with some assistance by the cheap, but good, wines in Langkawi. Actually not many of... More

I and my wife spent 5 nights in "Teepur 3" in the end of October 2014. We were astonished by the very high standard as well as size of our studio, the kindness and service level of the staff and on top of that we were invited to a Deepavali party thrown by the owners, Ahamad and Joan. This was... More

Hi, thanks for the review. We like to meet our guests and also give the guests an opportunity to meet each other in an informal situation and there is no better situation than such occasions as Deepavali, an important Hindu festival celebrating the triumph of light over darkness. Actually being a multi-cultural country we have many such excuses for celebratory... More

If you want to be treated like royalty, stay here. The staff cannot do enough for you. Their friendliness, service and helpfulness is genuine; and the secret to their success. We felt they could not do enough for us. Anna, the manager (who we first met on a courtesy cocktail evening she hosted for guests) treated us like friends, not... More

As I said in my response to the review by Maria, I am deeply honored and complimented that someone so experienced in the tourism industry should say so many good things about Ambong-Ambong.Thank you very much for taking the trouble.
