I stayed here with my boyfriend for 5 nights March 2015. Lovely chalets, breakfast is provided in your room and staff very friendly and helpful. A perfect place to stay to relax.Close to the beach and restaurants.

We spent six comfortable nights in this boutique hotel and especially enjoyed lingering on the terrace over a generous Continental breafast (provided), surrounded by tropical trees and vines and overlooking the tourquoise waters of the bay about 30 meters below and maybe 400 meters away. With a kitchenette and small sitting area and generous closet space, in addition to the... More

I stayed here for 1 week after reading many reviews on this site and I was not dissappointed at all. Ambong Ambong is a very unique boutique property that houses 7 villa (if you can call them that). We stayed at no 3 which has a huge queen size bed and bathroom big enough for two people to get ready... More

Amazing Find Thank you for this review which coming fro a Senior Contributor ( and presumably from an experienced traveller)is very significant. All guests are given a local hand phone on checking in, for several reasons. We want them to be able to call us at any time from anywhere in Langkawi, if only to get the driver to fetch... More

Ambong Ambong was the last hotel in a two week trip (from KL, Boracay to Langkawi). We had a late flight and arrived about 10pm, we were agreed at the foot of the hill by a memeber of staff who drove us up to our room, he checked us in (in our room- more like an appartment) he was very... More

I think im possibly repeating other peoples views however I'd like to add how amazed I am by this hotel (it isn't really a hotel more like a nice private apartment). The place is amazing... beach 5 mins walk, rooms amazing quality and all very private. The staff are incredibly helpful (we had a very late check in gone 11pm... More

All the reviews by travellers were right, I need not to repeat. Special thanks to Nizam. Only get to meet Anna once during the cocktail party organized by the owner on Feb 05 (Anna is heavily pregnant, baby boy due in approximately two months, congrats, Anna). All guests are treated like family members, not travelers. You have to be there... More

Thank you for the great review. Ahmad enjoyed the discussion you had with him especially about Singapore/Malaysia relations in general. He thanks you for your suggestion regarding the limited choice of channels and promised to do something about it if you assure him that you will come back and visit. Singapore is so near to us and anytime you feel... More

We spent 4 nights at Ambong Ambong and paid a bit extra for the large suite at the top of the hill which had its own kitchenette and huge balcony, containing a bath and it was well worth it. The steep hill was no bother as the staff willingly shuttle you up and down in a car the instant you... More

Thank you for the review. You stayed in one of the best rooms and I am delighted that you enjoyed the lovely views of the bay and the distant mountains from the large balcony. We had several guests who were so entranced with the view that they stayed in for whole days. The herb garden is still work-in-progress and we... More

Ambong Ambong is an amazing hotel located amongst a beautiful jungle. It has everything from the friendliest staff to monkeys storming through the bar. It even has a Japanese restaurant located on site which has fantastic food. From the entrance of the hotel to the beach is only a 2-3 minute walk. After all this the highlight of our stay... More

You have no idea how delighted Anna and the staff are to know that your marriage proposal was accepted. We have a soft spot for couples seeking to seal their relationships, or honeymooning or on anniversaries and will go the extra mile to make the occasion memorable. The room Anna put you in was designed especially with this in mind;... More

From the moment we arrived at the hotel and were greeted with cool towels and refreshing drinks, we were made thoroughly welcome.

The location of the hotel is too good, nestled in the hills, yet very close to the beach and the local market. The room we checked into had a partial view of the sea, the balcony was worth spending the entire morning and evening reading a book or just lazing around. The entrance leads to a living room cum kitchenette,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a lengthy and appreciative review of Ambong-Ambong. We took a lot of trouble to ensure that the rooms are decorated to a standard and style that the discerning guest would appreciate. The loose fittings especially required a lot of looking around as we wanted material that are authentic,natural and hand-made. I am... More
