Tonight is my 3rd night here. Ambong Ambong has given me everything I wanted! It is secluded however the beach is only a 5ish minute walk away. Very easy - down the driveway, across the road and first driveway on the left. At low tide you can walk the whole beach. Ambong Ambong is on a steep hill & generally... More

Ambong ambong, so good they named it twice, Lovely secluded hill side bungalows and flats just on the outskirts of pantai cenang beach resort in a rainforest setting, monkeys climbing out in the undergrowth. Nissam is the manager who is a super chap who sorts you out with drinks, g&t's, taxis and you get provided with a mobile phone with... More

Ambong-ambong exceeded my expectation in many ways. It is very well designed to blend in with nature and well thought out. No formal check in/out procedure which was absolutely great and time saving. We absolutely love the balcony overlooking the rainforest and sea view from slight distance, and the unique DIY breakfast concept. The only drawback is that the fresh... More

We have a fantastic life living and working in Malaysia. So many places to visit and see wildlife at its best. My wife said she would like to visit a rainforest or the like. I booked Ambong Ambong because of the pictures and reviews. We were picked up from the airport by our Malay friends/adopted family who took us to... More

We stayed at Ambong Ambong for eight nights in February this year and we had a great time. We went with four friends and we were made really welcome. Anna couldn't do enough for us but most of the staff excelled at their jobs and went the extra mile to look after us. Waking up to the monkeys in the... More

Thank you for an excellent and even-handed review. As the owner I am both aghast and deeply embarrassed by what you described, which was intolerable and inexcusable. I like to think that those staying at Ambong-Ambong are my personal house guests, and anything like this is extremely cringe-worthy. I have friends and family who are asthmatic and are aware of...

I can not say enough about Ambong Ambong. I was extremely impressed from the minute I enquired about a weekend away with the girls. Anna and her staff went out of her way and above and beyond to ensure we had the best weekend possible. The property is small and quiet and truly set right in the jungle. Six of... More

I am so happy we were able to meet your expectations because Anna (and her team) really went out of their way to make your party have a great week-end. We enjoyed looking after you, so please come back again. Singapore is only a short flight away. Thanks for the great review. More

We visited Malaysia and Langkawi for the first time, and the stay at this resort as the last stop was a very positive experience. Resort Ambong Ambong was excellent with very friendly and helpful staff.  Thanks a lot to Nizam and his staff. The very warm welcome, the nice, big and clean room and the tasty breakfast that we could... More

You may like to know that we have just remodeled the pool area to give guests more privacy and space to sun bathe. Also the building next to the pool is being converted to a café called " The Good Earth Café" so that in future a cold beer or a reinvigorating coffee will always be readily available. Thank you...

This is a pleasant little resort, perched on a (rather steep) hill, surrounded by lush rainforest and its other inhabitants. It had few units, making it a tranquil place—perfect for a relaxing break. Upon arrival, we had to squeeze our car into the not-too-generously-sized parking space, and then take a hike up two flights of stairs to the office. The... More

Thank you for the long and thoughtful review. First I must apologise that you had to walk up 3 flights of stairs to the office. Normally a driver will be waiting at the bottom of the hill to take guests straight up to their room for the check-in formalities. There must have been a foul-up that day and it is... More

I travel overseas a lot for work and stay in many hotels from business to resort hotels and this place is up there with the best of them! The rooms were large and expertly designed and equipped, with a balcony / kitchen / open air bathtub overlooking the bay and jungle. The pool is small but very relaxing and when... More

Thank you for the review and for making mention of Nizam’s Margeritas of which he is rightly very proud of. (Actually he is a master of at least a dozen cocktails of varying potency all of which he is proud of, but that’s another story and I digress). The staff takes pride in offering friendly and personal service and they... More

To be honest, we had wanted to book one of the international brands along Pantai Cenang for our trip. However, they are fully booked for one of the days we are there so I found Ambong Ambong. The thought of waking up to monkeys in the lush forest was alluring (for me). Upon arrival, we were greeted by Nizam who... More

Thank you for the very appreciative review which encapsulates very well the spirit that drives us at Ambong-Ambong. As I have said may times before we try to offer our guests, who are mostly very well travelled, a very personal and yet discreet service in an environment they would not normally encounter elsewhere and most, like you, find the experience...
