It is hard to categorise Ambong Ambong, whether you staying in a hotel or serviced apartments,I am not sure but it is an incredible place to be. My wife and I decided to stay at this resort after reviewing the various hotels on TA, we were destined to book the Danna but by chance found Ambong Ambong. After reading the... More

Seems everyone's pretty much said it but i will just share my own experience! :P Great hotel and friendly staff - we stayed in the 3 story cottage. They gave us one cellphone so that we could call the driver to pick us up at the bottom of the hill. As everyone has mentioned, the walk up to the rooms... More

I have just seen this review which delighted me as much as it dismayed me. In almost 4 years of business, this is the first time a guest has lost something even though there have been cases of valuable hand phones, cameras and even jewellery inadvertently left behind which were successfully returned to the rightful owners. Nizam immediately conducted a... More

Ambong ambong is simply fabulous! The thought and attention to detail that was shown to us throughout our visit made it really special! Upon arrival we were met and shown to our gorgeous room, where over a welcome drink we were told that breakfast is put in the fridge the night before for you to enjoy whenever you like the... More

Thank you for a great review. We are aware that as a small player (11 rooms only) in a highly competitive field we have to carve out a special niche market for ourselves, and we have done that by being in an almost unique setting while providing excellent, but slightly quirky, highly personal service. The staff genuinely enjoys looking after... More

Congratulations to Joan & Ahmad on your vision and attention to detail in this magnificent resort. It was a pleasure meeting you both on our first night in the bar during "happy hour". The information we received, and the friendship of you staff made us feel like part of the family. I strongly suggest you visit the bar every afternoon... More

Thank you for the review and I hope you had a comfortable trip home. We enjoyed looking after you, especially the conversations Ahmad had with Jennifer. We are especially proud of the bar which we try to keep exclusive for guests only, to enable them to enjoy the great views and comfortable surroundings. Ady and Yan are naturally very entertaining...

I think most things have already been said..... We stayed in the suite which was spectacular at the top of the hill. Generally warm friendly staff. Great useful driver service to room. One night we were walking back from somewhere and were spotted by a staff member who then rang for a driver to pick us up. We didn't ask... More

Thank you for a long and thoughtful reply. I heard about your brother from Nizam and I hope he has recovered by now. The point you made about breakfast is well received and we will, as soon as possible, leave a small note on the breakfast tray as a reminder that a local alternative is available for the next and...

We stayed there for 2 nights December 15-17, 2014. 2 kids (5 & 7) and my wife & I. We booked the 2 bedroom, single storey villa (overlooking pool). What an amazing experience from the check in to apartment itself which was amazingly spacious with a HUGE balcony. No shortage of wildlife from hornbills to monkey which roam freely. Absolutely...

Thank you for the lovely review. Normally we don’t accept children, mainly because of safety considerations, but your children were wonderfully well behaved. You had the premier family cottage which has easy access and excellent views. I am sorry that the WIFI was slow occasionally. The transmitters are hidden among the trees and any number of things can affect the... More

I almost never write reviews, but had to -- my stay here at the end of March was phenomenal. I was hesitant at first, because the photos on this site aren't great, but in reality, the rooms are gorgeous, clean, and modern, with great views and nice ambiance. The staff are incredibly helpful, and quite willing to drive you up... More

Thank you for the review. Like you many people have commented that the photos do not do us justice. Partly it was deliberate. The exteriors were made to be understated so as not to compete and overwhelm the natural surroundings. It was also to provide the ‘wow’ when guests see the luxurious interiors and the magnificent views. If asked, the... More

We spent six comfortable nights in this boutique hotel and especially enjoyed lingering on the terrace over a generous Continental breafast (provided), surrounded by tropical trees and vines and overlooking the tourquoise waters of the bay about 30 meters below and maybe 400 meters away. With a kitchenette and small sitting area and generous closet space, in addition to the... More

Thank you for the review. You hit the nail on the head; Ambong-Ambong is just as you described it. It is not meant for the tourist who rushes around with a checklist in one hand and a camera in the other, but more suited for the experienced traveller (been there, done it) who likes to take it in more leisurely....

I stayed here for 1 week after reading many reviews on this site and I was not dissappointed at all. Ambong Ambong is a very unique boutique property that houses 7 villa (if you can call them that).

Amazing Find Thank you for this review which coming fro a Senior Contributor ( and presumably from an experienced traveller)is very significant. All guests are given a local hand phone on checking in, for several reasons. We want them to be able to call us at any time from anywhere in Langkawi, if only to get the driver to fetch... More
