If you are not a super beach-goer this retreat will suit you. Sitting on the hill, you get both great views of the sea and the forest. One thing hope to be improved during our next stay is the Wifi signal inside the top room. It didn't work well with the stream medias or graphs and pictures this time.

We have just left Ambong Ambong after 5 amazing days on Langkawi. The room was just perfect, a huge covered dining area/ kitchen and seating area with a wooden bath tub having views over the trees to the sea below. The bedroom was very large with an extemely comfy bed. The bathroom / dressing room had a massive shower again... More

I stayed 4 nights at this property as part of a yoga retreat n I am glad I was quick enough to get hold of the last studio for that period. Having stayed in different Langkawi properties such as the Sheraton n the Andaman that may have more amenities but the level of personal touch n service in Ambong Ambong... More

From the first moment it's clear that everyone at Ambong Ambong knows what service means. At this small hotel every member of the staff contribute to make the stay memorable and each in their own personal way. The rooms are very comfortable and built in different units on a hill. If you don't feel like walking up or down, just... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in June and it was incredible! I cannot put a single fault on this place - they deliver breakfast to your room the day before so you can enjoy it privately the following morning with your friends/partner, the showers are walk in (and huge!) and the beds are comfortable, and, probably most important of all,...

Thank you for this review. As you probably know we offer a generous continental breakfast which you can enjoy at your leisure and also an optional local breakfast which we deliver to the room in the morning. A lot of guests enjoy the local fare as much. The Japanese restaurant is one of the best in the country and if... More

I stayed at this hotel in April, and really enjoyed my stay. My room had a wonderful view of the ocean which made the balcony my favorite feature. The morning breakfast was a nice touch, which included a variety of fresh fruit. The staff was nice, and extremely accommodating to my needs. A word of caution; definitely leave the doors... More

You stayed in the Singa Suites, which are by far our favourite units as they have large balconies with fantastic views of the forest, mountains and ocean. The monkeys are a beguiling nuisance, but they are fairly harmless. I think your visitors were the more inquisitive macaques but you should also have seen families of the more reclusive leaf monkeys... More

This was my fifth visit to Langkawi and my third to Ambong. I love travelling and visiting new places, so to go back so many times to the same place is very unusual for me. Ambong has drawn me back because the place is special for many reasons; from the location, set up and attention to detail, through to the... More

Thank you for a review that is at once complimentary and also very helpful. As you know we take guest views very seriously and try to accommodate where possible. I am particularly gratified that you have returned more as a friend than as a hotel guest. When Ahmad and I started this hotel one of the reasons we had in... More

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

Thank you for the review and I am sorry that the weather was so unseasonably wet that the umbrella became indispensable. Usually between September to April, the weather here is hot and dry to the extent that in some districts water use had to be curtailed.
