What an amazing location, you do need stamina to walk up the hill to the rooms from the reception/pool/beach/restaurants- however, offered a phone and personal taxi service from 8am - midnight. The staff were simply very happy to transport you anywhere in the local area The breakfast is available from 8-12 with most mornings being a quite late start to...

Thank you for the amazing review.The staff love to be appreciated. All of us enjoy doing our jobs, meeting so many different people from different parts of the world and looking after them. I know that sounds pretentious and even pompous but we truly enjoy making friends and building bridges in a world full of hate and dissent. Thank you...

What a great place! Nice to have stayed in a small, personal hotel. Staff were the friendliest we've ever met. Our room (a studio) was great, with awesome sea views and tree tops - with the odd monkey scurrying around! Bedroom and bathroom area was great, kitchenette, and balcony. Ambong Ambong is a little way out of town, but they...

Ambong-Ambong is rated as a 4-star hotel but its facilities and the service provided is way above that of many 5-star hotels. The hotel is built into the hill-side amongst the trees. We booked a two room cottage and a studio apartment. The cottage has a nice wide balcony while the studio room has a much better view of the...

Thank you for the appreciative review. As you correctly said we are not a 5- star establishment but we try in our own unique way to be even better. In place of the formality of a 5-star hotel, we give warm genuinely friendly Malaysian hospitality. Instead of a multiplicity of facilities, we offer solitude and the serenity of an original...

What a memorable stay we’ve had! This was our first trip to Langkawi and we found Ambong Ambong to be a big part of our wonderful time on this beautiful island. Our room was situated high up in the trees so we really felt one with nature. But not so much that it felt intimidating - with the lovely bedroom...

Staff were brilliant, facilities were first class and the view was fantastic, so quiet and peaceful yet so close to everything, breakfast was superb, the steepness of the property was quite daunting at first but when they drive you up and down the hill anytime you want it was no problem,

It is second nature for our staff to look after our guests especially if its their celebration of a birthday or anniversary. Even guests on short holidays seeking to escape their normally hectic working life appreciate the respect and sensitivity of our staff .
