I've been meaning to leave this review since visiting Ambong Ambong last year in November. This hotel is the most impressive resort I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Everything from the staff to the accomodation was 5 star. Our room was set high up on the mountain.. the view was fantastic through the jungle with a Seaview.... More

Thank you for the review. The fact that it was written almost a year after your stay with us makes it all the more heartfelt and valuable. The staff try very hard to give guests their personal attention and see to all their needs but also to anticipate their wants.They appreciate your kind words. The herb garden is even better... More

We stayed at Ambong Ambong for three nights in August '16. Could not have asked for anything more. Rooms were luxurious, views were unreal, staff were friendly and helpful. Saw many monkeys swinging through the branches. Breakfast was great. Would highly recommend to anyone coming to Langkawi

Thank you for taking the time and the effort to write this succinct review. The monkeys are a delight and many of our guests spend long hours on the balcony just watching their antics, even though the brown macaques are mischievous and great filchers from the unwary. The leaf monkeys are adorable and as they stare with their white-rimmed eyes... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Ambong Ambong. We had an amazing time and were spoilt by the staff there! This property is built on quiet a steep hill.

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Apart from yoga we also offer meditation classes (by a very experienced teacher) and cooking. Most tourist activities in Langkawi are out-doorish and physical and we like to complement them with spiritual and cultural experiences. The mosquitoes are a pest. At this time of the year when it rains it... More

We enjoyed 6 days and 5 nights at this rainforest retreat. We met a very kind and extremely helpful staff and stayed in one of the studios where we met the original population of the forest: a bunch of monkeys. The view and the relaxing comfort of the rooms is awesome. Although we didn't like the Cenang beach, we enjoyed... More

Thank you for your lovely review. You are absolutely right that "the original population of the forest" has remained with us all these 5 years! Not only that, you will often see baby dusky leaf monkeys which are a delightful orange in colour clinging on to their mothers. We made a concerted attempt not to disturb their habitat and built...

We were at Ambong Ambong for one week and had a great time! It is a beautiful resort build on a steep hill, but the drivers will bring you up and down whenever you want.

Thank you for the kind words. We like people to arrive as guests and to leave as friends. We deliberately leave the buildings in plain colours so as not to compete with the magnificent jungle. It is only when a guest enters a room that the painstaking care that we put into each room becomes apparent. Razak (Roger), the Gardener,... More

We stayed in the room highest up and looked out over the amazing forest. There was the cutest monkeys in a tree outside our window and we loved being able to enjoy the closeness to nature. The room was beautiful, clean and the staff were amazing and helpful :)
