We decided NOT to stay in one of the 'famous' resorts on Langkawi and were looking for something 'special' - and we found it!! Off the main beaches and tourist life, a hidden gem nestled in the hills just 5 minutes walking distance to the beach. A quiet place, including all the comfort of a deluxe property, but in addition...

Thanks for an amazing review. We are pleased we fit your special criteria of a good accommodation and service. We do not claim to offer all the perks of a 5-star resort but being (deliberately) small we can offer very personalized hospitality with the little touches that make us different from the rest. Most of our guests are surprisingly well-traveled...

A night in Ambong Ambong with very friendly staff, clean room, simple and nice breakfast. So far this resort has best maintenance among the rest in Langkawi I has experienced before. Highly recommended if within your budget.

Excellent staff. Nothing is too much trouble. A perfect getaway. Self indulgence and pampering are the order of the day. Tranquil, unique and great value. I am already planning my next visit. Go on....you know you want to! You WON'T be disappointed.

Thank you for the review. As I said earlier, keeping the place well maintained and offering a very high standard of personal service is extremely hard work and expensive. Even on the face of it we appear to be slightly more costly than other comparable establishments, guests get it back in terms of the quality of service and high satisfaction...

This is one of the most special and unique hotels I've stayed in. The hotel is a little off the beaten track, with cabanas set back from the road in the rainforest. It was amazing to see monkeys and tropical birds every day and we really felt a million miles away from rainy London. It's very easy to get into...

Thank you for the lovely review. We try to be different, not only out of necessity because we are small and in what was regarded as an unfavorable location, but also because we believe there is another approach to the hospitality business, away from the huge resorts, the destruction of the environment, the over-dressed doorman and the plastic smiles. And...

This is not your usual resort hotel with a large swimming pool next to the beach. It is a unique place on a hillside where the staff genuinely welcome you as an honoured guest and make you feel that this is your home for however long you are going to stay there. The room we had was spacious and well...

I love your short and sincere review. We pay a great deal of attention to the maintenance and appearance of the rooms. Keeping the place up to scratch takes a surprisingly fair amount of work, given the jungle environment and the salt breeze from the sea. I am delighted that you have appreciated and enjoyed your stay very much. It...

Wonderful cabana atop a hill in the tropical greenery. The amenities were fantastic - a nice kitchen and lounge with large openings to listen to the sounds of nature. Bedroom is air conditioned and fully appointed. The service was outstanding - always friendly. They were so thoughtful in preparing a breakfast for us in our room before we left for...

We stayed at 9 hotels in total during our hotel in Malaysia and don't get me wrong all of them where great but the Ambong Ambong was for 100% the most unique and special.

Thank you for the warm review which I have to admit gives me a great deal of joy to receive; it is not often we are compared so favourably with so many hotels.

Hands down to Ambong Ambong in all aspects. The location, the rooms, the amenities, the ambience and the service were more than superb. To start with the location, Ambong Ambong is situated in Pantai Tengah among the rainforest. What all may think is that the location may be inaccessible to restaurants, attractions and bars which is what we originally thought...

I rarely write reviews unless it is deserved for either being really bad, or really good. In this case it is thoroughly deserved, because the Ambong Ambong is so good. The location is perfect, just enough isolation up the hill side that you feel you are living in the forest, with a short walk to the beach, and restaurants of...

Thank you for making the effort to write a review, especially if you don't often do reviews.
