Labour day weekend
Great resort very friendly staff and very good location. And gives you a good exercise to walk up and down the stairs to the room :) The rainforest location is peaceful and quiet - still central and near to the beach. We will return on our next trip to Langkawi.

Superb Service!
I will definitely go back to Langkawi, just for this place! I like Ambong Ambong a lot, although I am not really a kind of person who enjoy nature because I am scary of some animals. I didn't feel scary here at all! Rather, I enjoy the trees, sea views, and monkeys jumping ups and downs! A fun experience while having breakfast on the balcony! I must say I can sit there for a whole day, enjoying the different scenes and sounds around. Most importantly, the staff there are the best! Nizam (if I spell correctly) is the guy who serve us mostly. He even prepared ice and mat for our picnic, picked up us in the heavy rain from the pier. Other staff (sorry I cannot recall all the names) are also always glad to help with anything. What else I can say? Everything is greatly appreciated! The owners are also nice persons! We are invited to have a drink with them and other guests on our last night. The Margarita is so nice! And I like the atmosphere that people from different countries chatting about human kind vs. machines, marriage and life, etc. ^^ That is the meaning of travelling! Bonus points: As a guest of Ambong Ambong, there is a discount at the Japanese restaurant and Spa just down the hill. They are good too!

nice place
Very steep territory, a bit tiring to get back from the beach and to move on the premises.

Lovely place with fantastic staff
We are so glad we found this place at the last minute. Loved the room we were allocated - good size, clean and with all the features we needed. Breakfast here was top notch, we looked forward to the choc chip pancakes and roti canai every morning. Staff was fantastic - friendly, personable and always ready with a smile. Rooms are located up a steep slope but a driver is ready at any time to send you up or down. Even though they were unable to let us check out later due to room availability, we were given a comfortable sitting room with a clean bathroom to wait till it was time for us to leave. Pantai cenang is about 3 minutes drive away but a bit too far away to walk; not an issue for us since we drove. We had such a lovely stay there that we look forward to staying there again the next time we are in Langkawi.

What more can I say but absolutely amazing
From the moment we arrived we knew that we had booked an amazing place for a holiday and were in for a good time. The staff went way beyond their call of duty, always making sure everything was OK and answering all our questions especially Nizam, Mr Li and Ady. We miss you guys and will always think of you when we have a hamburger ;). The room was fantastic, staff keeping it clean everyday, the rainforest right on your door with monkeys and birds. Beach across the road, restaurants and shopping down the road. I could go on but you'll just have to visit and find out for yourself.
