Our 3 days at Ambong Ambong were the most memorable of our travels around Malaysia. The wildlife was amazing with leaf monkeys in the trees outside our balcony and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Being retirees the steep incline from the reception to our studio was too much to climb in the heat but the staff happily ferried...

I don't usually post reviews but for Ambong Ambong, I had to make an exception. We had the most amazing 4 days. The views are just sublime, giving a feeling that you are surrounded by a rain forest. Location is perfect - quiet and away from the busy Cenang, but not too far away when you'd like do shopping or...

Amazing hotel. The staff were all super friendly and happy to help us at any given moment, plus they gave us a really sweet surprise on arrival. I would recommend hiring a car at Langkawi airport before you travel there, much cheaper than getting taxis to explore the island. I only wish we could have stayed for longer!!!!!

Great place. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Accommodation spot on. A rainforest retreat surrounded by lush greenery, monkeys and birds. Close to all the local bars and restaurants. Bit of a trek up the hill to the accommodation but good exercise never the less. As others have mentioned the hotel provides transport if you don't feel like walking up. Highly...

Located in the middle of the rain forest is already a unique feature. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The quality of the room is what you expect at this level. And walking up and down the stairs is a good exercise. Is a must go to my opinion.

Our stay at Ambong Ambong for three nights was marked by great service, rustic cottage living, and splendid views of the rainforest within which the resort is built. Our balcony was surrounded by trees and and lush foliage which made it a welcome retreat after a day of exploring Langkawi. I appreciated the pre-packed breakfasts that they provided on the...

Stayed here with 4 of my mates over the Chinese New Year long weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. I arrived first at 9:30am as we all had different flights arriving into Langkawi and they promptly set me up to have breakfast as they got our room ready. By 11am the room was ready and...

We were five friends that stayed at Ambong Ambong over Chinese New Year. It's a great find! A real rainforest retreat surrounded by lush greenery and monkeys and birds. We had booked a two bedroom cottage that was equipped with everything we needed and had a lovely balcony with plenty of seating space. The beds were comfy as well. Although...

Joan_Shori, Owner at Ambong Ambong, responded to this review

Aside from the great staff, which all guests appreciate very much, the other great attraction of Ambong-Ambong is how centrally located we are to all the main tourist places and yet within a tranquil rainforest alive with wildlife. Perhaps most striking to guests is the sharp contrast between the noisy and busy Pantai Cenang, just a short distance away and...
