This hotel opened in 2011 and is situated up in the hills overlooking Cenang beach. The property is anchored at it's base by a well-known Japanese Restaurant (Unkaizan) and a spa (Ishan). This is also where the pool is sited. From there, it's a steep winding road to the various out-buildings where guests stay - all situated along the hill crest or perched over the trees so each one has a spectacular view. The hotel provides a driver with a small SUV to take guests up and down the property for ease of getting around.

Our suite was large and well-appointed with a private veranda that included a small kitchen, lounge-chaises and a deep wooden tub to relax in while taking in the view. Each day the staff provided a fresh continental breakfast right in our room. All the staff were very friendly and helpful!

The hotel is still doing some minor improvements including finishing up a bar next to the pool that is scheduled to open in September 2014.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Thanks for the very apt and sympathetic description of Ambong-Ambong and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay.
The suite you were in is one of our best rooms and many guests have so enjoyed it that some have stayed in all day. Being high on the hill, these units are indeed above the fray, and conveys a sense of peace and serenity, in contrast to the busy tourist centres below.
Our bar is now open but exclusively to Ambong guests and invited members of the public only. The place looks even better than we had hoped and the views are excellent. You may want to check out our Facebook to see the photos.
I will be happy to buy you a drink at the bar the next time you visit.

We stayed here for five days this week as part of our honeymoon and almost had to be dragged away.

It's not a traditional hotel setting as you will gather from all the other reviews. That means it won't be for everyone but it was absolutely perfect for us.

Yes there are hills and it's a little walk to the beach but the rooms are stunning, it is quiet, and the staff go out of their way to go beyond providing excellent service, almost to the point of becoming a friend. A complimentary mini bar was provided and they even did all of our laundry. Nizam made sure we knew where to go in town for good food etc and the Malaysian breakfast he brought us was easily the best of our entire trip.

We also bumped into the owners in the Japanese restaurant (which was excellent and I reviewed separately) and they were equally as charming and friendly as the staff.

They are in the process of opening a small bar by the pool which work was being done on when we were there and that will be a great place to have a drink and watch the sunset.

Thanks again so much to all of them (especially Nizam) for making our stay as perfect as it was.

Room Tip: Splash out on a suite, the views are stunning and well worth the extra in cost

Hi, I remember you, the lovely Irish couple; were you able to get a good tan before leaving Langkawi?
The Good Earth Cafe is open and, even if I say so, it is lovely. In the evenings it will be a stunning place to enjoy a sun-downer. There are some photos on our Facebook if you want to see them.
Thanks for staying with us and for the great review for which Nizam and the staff are grateful. They join my husband and I in wishing you both all happiness and success for the future.

We stayed three nights in the hotel which is a very nice contrast to the busy and very touristic Langkawi.

The service can be compared with a 5 stars hotel. Everybody from the hotel is here for you. From the office to the hotel. We had a fantastic room (S1) at the top of the hotel with a bath on the terrace, a fantastic view of the bay and a very large bedroom.

The hotel is brand new and is very clean. We loved the concept to get a mobile phone to call the driver to pick up us when we need to go to the beach or when we needed anything...

I would recommend this hotel to anybody who come to this hotel and want to have a quiet and romantic stay.

Thanks again to the team of Ambong Ambong

You stayed in one of our best rooms, even though all the rooms were designed to give guests peace, serenity and romance even, as a refuge from the nearby tourist hot spots. I am glad you enjoyed it.
We highly recommend that guests should end a long tiring day by soaking in the bath tub while enjoying the colors of the sky at sunset.
The hand phone is for guests to feel they have a reliable friend who they can contact at any time
If they need any assistance ( minor emergencies,car break down etc) during their holiday in Langkawi.
So far it has worked very well.

Ambong Ambong has to be one of the best hotel / resorts I have ever stayed at, and I was disappointed that we only had three nights to enjoy all this place had to offer. The staff and service were fantastic, and no request was too big or too difficult. Everything we needed for our stay had been thought of - in-room check-in, a mobile phone with local emergency numbers programmed in, delivery of meals from local restaurants if you didn't want to go out, a driver if you didn't feel like walking up the steep hills to your room, local and western breakfast options to delivered to your room, and an on-site cooking class. Special thanks to Nizam who's friendly attitude made our stay.

Thank you for the lovely review and the kind remarks about Nizam.He thanks you.Normally during a holiday, the hotel is very much a secondary experience - a comfortable and slightly anonymous room to sleep in between activities. At Ambong-Ambong, we try to make the stay itself a memorable experience and our objective is to make the guests feel comfortable, safe, happy and special.
Please come back again.

Mum and I are reluctantly leaving Ambong Ambong and Langkawi this morning after a relaxing few days away from Singapore. Ambong Ambong has been perfect for our stay and the staff are so helpful, they have really looked after us: running us up and down the hill, great advice on what to do and where to eat etc. breakfast with the monkeys was entertaining too! Thank you all for making our stay so special

Thank you for staying with us and for being so appreciative, especially of the staff. I hope the monkeys merely entertained you and not steal your breakfast while you are not looking. The dusky leaf monkeys are endearing and with the large white rings around their eyes would appear as if to be looking at you thoughtfully through large spectacles. As the name suggests they feed only on leaves and would not be interested in any food left unattended, unlike the macaques.
Anytime you need a break from Singapore, please come and stay with us. We have a special deal for returned guests.
