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 staff were always friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The drivers not only took us up and down the steep drive to our villa, they also took us to various shops on our first...

Thank you for the review. Ahmad and I enjoyed talking to you during the party and hope that the rest of the trip, especially that by sailing boat to Phuket, went well and was just as enjoyable. What a fantastic experience it is for your girls. We enjoyed looking after your family as much as you enjoyed staying with us.... More

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

Not really a TripAdvisor kind of person, but it's only fair to give AA a glowing review. No point repeating everything already said, except to say it's all true! Staff are the most lovely I've ever encountered anywhere, and there were no negatives at all. Having seen how touristy and busy Pantai Cenang is, AA is a fantastic haven of... More

Thank you for the appreciative review especially of the staff. Like you most of our guests appreciate the serene haven that Ambong-Ambong is , in comparison to the rest of the island. After a couple of hours dining and shopping in Pantai Cenang (Cenang beach), most people are glad to return to the cool and reassuring embrace of the jungle.... More

Ambong Ambong is the most wonderful place I have ever stayed. It's the staff who make the experience - Anna, Nizam and their drivers are all fantastic and will bend over backwards to ensure you have the best experience they can possibly provide. The location is fantastic and near Pantai Tengah, the staff will drop you there every morning if... More

Thank you for being so appreciative of the staff. Like me, they feel that all guests are also their own personal guests whom they are privileged to look after with warmth and courtesy. You are right about the monkeys; while we have a strict policy of co-existence, we also do not encourage feeding them.I am surprised though that you saw... More

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.

Thank you for the review and for pointing out that the wifi did not work so well during your stay. You mentioned this to Anna and in spite of everything she tried , the wifi speed remained poor. Very often it is the network ( as was this case)and beyond our control but occasionally it is an internal issue. Because... More

We have just left Ambong Ambong after 5 amazing days on Langkawi.

Thank you for such a review that compliments both the place and the staff who are thrilled to be remembered. The leaf monkeys (black with white spectacle- like rings around the eyes) are enchanting as they gaze at you imploringly from a nearby tree, but the brown macaques are mischievous and are not above filching food off the breakfast table....
