We stayed here for five days this week as part of our honeymoon and almost had to be dragged away. It's not a traditional hotel setting as you will gather from all the other reviews. That means it won't be for everyone but it was absolutely perfect for us. Yes there are hills and it's a little walk to the... More

We stayed three nights in the hotel which is a very nice contrast to the busy and very touristic Langkawi. The service can be compared with a 5 stars hotel. Everybody from the hotel is here for you. From the office to the hotel. We had a fantastic room (S1) at the top of the hotel with a bath on... More

You stayed in one of our best rooms, even though all the rooms were designed to give guests peace, serenity and romance even, as a refuge from the nearby tourist hot spots. I am glad you enjoyed it. We highly recommend that guests should end a long tiring day by soaking in the bath tub while enjoying the colors of... More

Ambong Ambong has to be one of the best hotel / resorts I have ever stayed at, and I was disappointed that we only had three nights to enjoy all this place had to offer. The staff and service were fantastic, and no request was too big or too difficult. Everything we needed for our stay had been thought of... More

Thank you for the lovely review and the kind remarks about Nizam.He thanks you.Normally during a holiday, the hotel is very much a secondary experience - a comfortable and slightly anonymous room to sleep in between activities. At Ambong-Ambong, we try to make the stay itself a memorable experience and our objective is to make the guests feel comfortable, safe,... More

Mum and I are reluctantly leaving Ambong Ambong and Langkawi this morning after a relaxing few days away from Singapore. Ambong Ambong has been perfect for our stay and the staff are so helpful, they have really looked after us: running us up and down the hill, great advice on what to do and where to eat etc. breakfast with...

Thank you for staying with us and for being so appreciative, especially of the staff. I hope the monkeys merely entertained you and not steal your breakfast while you are not looking. The dusky leaf monkeys are endearing and with the large white rings around their eyes would appear as if to be looking at you thoughtfully through large spectacles.... More

We enjoyed our stay in Ambong Ambong. The site is very quiet, the staff are excellent, the rooms are very clean and adequate for a short break. Lots of monkeys around, whilst interesting they can be a problem if food left out. Views were good over the rainforest. Very helpful in taking you to and from town if you did... More

Ambong-Ambong was deliberately built in a jungle on a steep hill-side near, but not in, the main tourist areas. We figured that after doing all the sights, our guests would welcome the respite in a comfortable room in a tranquil jungle with good views of the ocean. The steep climb can be daunting (especially after a night out in the... More

We found this retreat on Tripadvisor and decided to book it after reading the favourable reviews. For those who want a peaceful getaway, away from the busier parts of Langkawi (being a city dweller, the whole of Langkawi is quiet in comparison), this place is ideal. It is about half an hour's drive from the airport (RM25). The rooms/cottages, of... More

Thank you for the thoughtful and lengthy review. We are indeed set in a lush forest on a steep slope some way from the main tourist areas. Most guests, like you, enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of the busier areas. While the buzz of the crowds is exciting it is also good to get away to a... More

We stayed at Ambong Ambong for six days and enjoyed every minute if it. Our experience was pure relaxation which was our idea from the get go. I'd have to say that we have not experienced this level of customer service for a very long time. The staff are exceptional here and deserve the praise as it is hard to... More

As I said in response to another review, a hotel room, no matter how luxurious, can so easily become just another anonymous place to sleep between activities in the day. Ambong tries to be more than that by giving guests a sense of time and place and a feeling that they are staying in a comfortable home of generous, caring... More

Thank you for being so complimentary; it is so nice to be so warmly appreciated. I like your use of the word terrasse to describe the balcony. This lovely old Anglo-Indian word (hardly used these days as far as I know) aptly evokes just the right combination of old-fashioned graciousness and comfort that we want to give to our guests....

A family friendly hotel to stay with. We had informed the hotel management that an infant, 11 months old will stay together with us. Baby cot, baby chair and baby bath tub was well prepared. But please take note that do not put any food/any tin outside the balcony, the monkey(s) will come and attack it :)

We have 2 types of monkeys in the forests around us; the mischievous macaques (Macaca fascicularis) who will not hesitate to sneak in and take food while you are not looking and the shy and endearing leaf-eating dusky leaf monkey (Presbytis obscura) which sit quietly and stare owl-like with eyes ringed with large spectacle-like white circles. Both species are under... More

Ambong Ambong is an unusual hotel up a rather steep hill that allows it great views of the surrounding forest/sea. Rooms are well-laid out and spotless with a nice balcony to sit on.

Thank you for the lovely review. We try to be more than just another hotel room where the guests merely retire to for the night.
