Thank you for taking time to write such an excellent review of Ambong-Ambong, we are delighted that you had a memorable stay with us in the jungle. As you have pointed out, we are a popular place for nature lovers with surrounding greenery and wildlife that comes with. We are unique in our own way with our hospitality, the location and services we provide. From your review we can see that you had experienced fully what we and the nature of Langkawi have to offer. We will share your compliments to respective departments. Yes there are many activities we can do in Langkawi. To unwind and relax at the pool side with a Happy hour cocktail or two is also one of the favorite activities. After that try shifting the place to the Good Earth Café of Rimba Restaurant to appreciate the beautiful view of sun setting into the Andaman Sea.

Thank you for taking time to write such a superb review of Ambong-Ambong, we are delighted that all of you had a wonderful stay with us. The cottage is also recommended to a family and close friends up to 4 people and comes with private lounge area and outside balcony, which is great for gathering. Being a small boutique resort, we as Ambong family work together from gardener to housekeeping, café staff to drivers. To make sure all our guests have comfortable and enjoyable time throughout their stay. Any inquiries can be passed to our staff anytime via mobile phone provided to each room. The drinks in the refrigerator is complimentary for first round and from second time we are happy to top up upon request. The price list can be found in the room. Mineral water is complimentary for the duration of your stay. Many enjoys the occasional visit of wild life such as dusky leaf monkeys or hornbills. We assure you that it is peaceful to be surrounded in the greenery of tropical rainforest, but to ease guest’s concern there are an insect repellent stand-by in each room. Where you had breakfast, the Good Earth Café, and the pool side is also a popular spot for dusky leaf monkeys to sit and relax. Thank you for your kind suggestions which we appreciate and noted for our future improvements. From all of our Ambong family, thank you once again for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to welcome you again soon.

Snakes? Shall I be worry about the snakes around xmas/NYE period (I heard it’s rainy season). I do like nature like birds and monkey. I don’t mind lizard but I am soooo soooo soo scared is the snake. I am wondering if I can take my chances? Thanks!
Hi We are nestled in the rainforest and you will see some wild life like dusky leaf monkeys. giant squirrels and hornbills. In our 7 years of operation, we have come across a few snakes but they have never been an issue. Almost always snakes are more frightened of us than we are of them Please be assured that your chances of coming across a snake is practically zero. If you decide to stay with us please book directly for a better discount. Kind regards, Sharina

Hi, A few questions: 1) How's the pool experience here? We're going to be here for 5 days around NYE and like to spend time around the pool. Is the area inviting? Can we get sun all day or does it get shade (trees...) after a certain hour? We have also pre-booked alternatives with Tanjung Rhu and Meritus. 2) How are the views from the suites? I was under the impression that we had great views until I realized those are only the Canopy Suites. Thanks!
We stayed in a private villa with excellent jungle views down to the water, other ones had excellent views (actually some of the best I have ever seen with loads of sun) ours was Quite shaded but refreshing from the hot sun. The pool area in the main resort is small but intimate with sunshine, keeping in mind this is an eco friendly experience with monkeys and wildlife taking centre stage you will have a great stay. The food is excellent and the staff are the best in Langkawi.... Tracy from Australia

Do canopy studios have a private balcony and partially sea view? What are the differences between canopy studio and suits?
Do canaopy studios have a private balcony and partially sea view? What are the differences between canopy studio and suits?
We stayed in the canopy and had lovely views of the wildlife - hornbills and dusky leaf monkeys. Our canopy room had more than enough space with a kitchenette, loads of storage, shower rather than bath. The suits are obviously bigger, we were lucky enough to see the pool suites they were incredible! If you can afford it go for those. The staff make this place and breakfast, and cocktails are great. The new restaurant is also very nice.

"The property is steep! You will want to be driven to your villa most of the time in a 4WD. You can walk if you stay closer to the entrance."
