A perfect place for couples, with only 11 villas in the resort. Lots of privacy and quiet time. My wife and I stayed at Ambong for our 10th Wedding Annniversary and it was not a disappointment. Great service and very helpful and friendly staff. A special mention goes to Joe and Naz, the resort drivers! Ambong is near to many...

Thank you for your fantastic review of Ambong-Ambong. We love hosting honeymooners (we also consider 10th wedding anniversary a honeymooon ☺) and with only 11 rooms, allows us to provide extra care and attention to all our guests needs. Being up close to local wildlife is one of the unique experiences of Ambong-Ambong, the animals on the island were here...

We spent 2 nights over here and really recommend this place if you are staying in the Cenang area, but don't want hang around the hectic, noisy and dirty city center. Ambong Ambong is a small retreat with only 11 rooms and a personal approach by all employees, from housekeeping to breakfast to drivers. The rooms were really well decorated,...

Arriving after 27 hours from Manchester Ambong was all we had hoped for. Welcomed warmly by Nissan and all the other staff we were shown to our studio room (3) where a light supper of local curry, flatbread and rice had been left for us. Delicious!! We loved Ambong and it was our base for 5 nights whilst we mooched...

Thank you for your great review of Ambong-Ambong, we know what its like after a long flight and for us it means having some good food, so we thought our guests would appreciate it too. Renting a car is one of two ways to see the REAL Langkawi, the other way is by chartering a private speed boat (coming soon)....

Verry good stuff ! They have cars to drive you around the hotel. Rooms are Clean, quiet and nice. We spent 4 days in Ambong Ambong hotel and we recommend it for a honeymooners. Just be careful of the monkeys surround the rooms.

I decided to go there for 3 nights after I checked the reviews and it was really amazing unforgettable stay at the ambong.

Thank you for your wonderful review on Ambong-Ambong, we have made a conscious effort to remain secluded, and many people often miss us from Unkaizan, the Japanese restaurant. We are especially glad to hear you had the best 2 hours at our Spa. Though we are separate management, we work very closely with our friends at the Spa to ensure...

There is nothing we didn't love about Ambong Ambong. Our spacious Suite, with the outdoor balcony, was just as spacious and beautiful as in the photos, if not more so. The staff greeted us warmly the moment we arrived, and couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay (shout out to the driver Joe!). From ordering delivery to remembering to...

Thank you for your wonderful review, we are delighted to hear that you loved every bit of your experience with us.

We spent 4 lovely days at Ambong Ambong and enjoyed every minute. Excellent accommodation, lovely rainforest setting, good quality breakfasts and the steep access and distance from town were no trouble as drivers on call at a moment's notice to take you up or down!
