Great place. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Accommodation spot on. A rainforest retreat surrounded by lush greenery, monkeys and birds. Close to all the local bars and restaurants. Bit of a trek up the hill to the accommodation but good exercise never the less. As others have mentioned the hotel provides transport if you don't feel like walking up. Highly...

Thank you for your brilliant review of Ambong-Ambong, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. While building the resort, we made a conscious effort not to disrupt our natural surroundings, our guests love the lush greenery while the monkeys and the birds appreciate this as well. Please do come back and visit us soon.

Located in the middle of the rain forest is already a unique feature. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The quality of the room is what you expect at this level. And walking up and down the stairs is a good exercise. Is a must go to my opinion.

Thank you for the lovely review. We make a conscious effort to be different from the standard hotels where you often leave the place without a memorable experience. We are able to deliver this partly because we are small with only 11 units and our wonderful staff are always there to pamper our guests to make them feel they have...

Our stay at Ambong Ambong for three nights was marked by great service, rustic cottage living, and splendid views of the rainforest within which the resort is built. Our balcony was surrounded by trees and and lush foliage which made it a welcome retreat after a day of exploring Langkawi. I appreciated the pre-packed breakfasts that they provided on the...

Stayed here with 4 of my mates over the Chinese New Year long weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. I arrived first at 9:30am as we all had different flights arriving into Langkawi and they promptly set me up to have breakfast as they got our room ready. By 11am the room was ready and...

The 2 bedroom cottage you and your friends stayed in is ideal to chill out as the big balcony is open to the rainforest and you are serenaded by the sounds of the jungle. We have two units of the 2bed room cottage and it is very popular with families having teenage children or it could be great for close...

We were five friends that stayed at Ambong Ambong over Chinese New Year. It's a great find! A real rainforest retreat surrounded by lush greenery and monkeys and birds.

Aside from the great staff, which all guests appreciate very much, the other great attraction of Ambong-Ambong is how centrally located we are to all the main tourist places and yet within a tranquil rainforest alive with wildlife. Perhaps most striking to guests is the sharp contrast between the noisy and busy Pantai Cenang, just a short distance away and...

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.
