Ambong Ambong is a stunning hotel with the most friendly and helpful staff we have ever come across. Service was fast and efficient. We were made to feel special and welcome. The rooms are modern and clean, with balconies that look into lush jungle. The location is perfect. Not too far from the Main Street but far enough that it's... More

We recently stayed in both the studio and a one-room suite. The studio is great, but the suite is absolutely amazing. Great to wonderful views are on offer from all the rooms. Staff is very friendly and actually know you by name when you arrive. I had high expectations and this place still managed to exceed them. The monkeys on... More

Thank you for the great review. The title is apt; we are certainly working to be the best place in Langkawi if we are not that already. I took your very insignificantly minor (to use your own words) complaint seriously and made inquiries immediately. As I expected there were some good reasons but none were enough to excuse having you... More

Thank you for the review. Ambong-Ambong was designed to be different from the usual hotels deliberately to target the discriminating traveller who wishes to take a break away from the normal bustle of the tourist spots. Being in a jungle slightly away from Pantai Cenang (and yet close enough to the beach and restaurants) gives us a uniquely tranquil environment.... More

Perfect service , good environment (if u like nature) , perfect built in (modern type of tropical living) , but a bit dangerous as we encounter monkey attack at our balcony in the morning while we sleeping , the monkeys (3) break our wine glass. Afterall , it's a almost perfect stay. Could be speechless for the price , better... More

Thank you for the review. I am sorry that the monkeys gave you, especially your partner, a fright; they are destructive but they will not attack. Most monkeys are shy of humans and will stay well away, but lately some are getting bolder and will invade the balcony in expectation of food which previous guests have sometimes inadvertently left unattended....

Thank you for the kind words about the staff. Even though I say it myself, they are an excellent bunch and I am very proud of them. The spa has been through a complete make-over and has regained its previous high standards and reputation. Most guests enjoy being ministered by the therapists and rate the experience highly. Please come back... More

We (my wife and I) selected this hotel based on reviews on Tripadvisor's website. There was one average rating and the rest very good and excellent. We made our booking through AirAsiaGo for 4D3N at a cost of RM1990 (including airfare) with check-in on 21 April 2015. There was a slight problem locating this hotel as it was built on... More

Thank you for the very complimentary review; I really appreciate the time that you took to write such a detailed report. My husband and I enjoyed meeting both of you. In very many ways you fit our typical guest profile: well-travelled, discriminating and cultured. Even though most guests find our breakfast very satisfactory we are working to improve on it...

We stayed at the Ambong Ambong for three nights and it was simply wonderful! The staff is incredibly friendly and the location is magic! The appartements are very large, calm, modern and staffed with everything you need for your stay. In the morning you can take your breakfast whenever you want on the balcony with sea-view. You'll immediately feel at... More

We were staying in the 84 m² Suite for five nights. It has one big bedroom and a huge patio with a wooden bathtub, a table to eat the breakfast, two comfortable chairs and a little kitchen. The view is spectacular and you can also observe monkeys and great hornbills (birds). They put the breakfast in the fridge in the... More

Thank you for the review. You obviously enjoyed your stay in the Singa Suite. These are our best rooms and no-one has been disappointed so far. Wherever the opportunity occurs, which is not often, I get to enjoy staying in the suites also. Sitting in the wooden tub at dusk watching the bright red ball slowly disappear below the western...

Thank you for the great review. I note your comment about the level of lighting in the room. Actually it was a deliberate decision on our part to keep the level low for a host of environmental reasons – you may notice that we use a lot of LED lights even though these are more expensive. Like you, I like... More
