This place really is something special...”
This place really is something special. The location is spectacular, the accommodation is beautifully presented and very spacious and the service, without exception, is superb. You just need to relax and the staff at Ambong Ambong will take care of everything for you. There is a very efficient transport arrangement to take you to nearby restaurants or the beach. The onsite restaurant is superb, the food is really tasty, the service is very attentive and you are made to feel very much part of their 'family'. The view at sunset from the restaurant is incredible. There is plenty to do on Langkawi but it will be tempting to sit on your balcony or by the pool and take in the beautiful views and the lush tropical rainforest. We had a couple of treatments at the spa which is adjacent to Ambong Ambong, they too were excellent. We had an amazing week at Ambong Ambong and would definitely recommend it and will be going back for more!
Wonderful rainforest experience”
Me and mr hubby are longing for this holiday quite some times. Ambong- ambong offerred us what we needed most- the tranquility. Overall stay was good experience esply the egg benedicts breakfast that was my hubby favourite. The only set back is there is no place to sweat out such as gym or walk track around the resort.
I enjoyed the most relaxed holidays at Ambong Ambong. The whole team makes my stay so enjoyable with their warm and friendly spirit. Thank you for everything to all, especially Akane, Kusnol and Owl. I don't remember the names of everyone. My favorite things are -T3 studio with a great sea view -Walking to the sea- barefoot stroll along a sandy beach -the great Ayurvedic massage at Ishan spa -beautiful Restaurant Rimba I will be back definitely!
We loved this Hotel”
The staffs are extremely Hospitable. They cater to your needs, delicious breakfast. Extremely clean facility and top notch friendly staff that goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable and memorable. Driver to bring you to nearby restaurant or place. Good view, great place for relaxing & spa.
We had a fantastic holiday, made all the more special by all the lovely staff at ambong ambong. ”
The staff could not be more helpful. They made our stay very memorable. Helping us to plan our day trips to ensure we had the best time. All the staff were friendly and very hard working from the managers through to the drivers and restaurant staff. Nothing was ever too much. We loved it! Thanks so much.
If you like nature this is the place..credit to the manager as he recommend us the good place to eat seafood and where the go with good bargain. Overall is the nice place and I would stay again if i go to Langkawi.
a little disapponted this time”
as i said before i really like this place even though i personally think it's a little bit unmatch the price standard .but for the second time staying i feel.rather disappointed . just really hope they would.offer more quality services instead of just foucsing makeing more money out of it.
never offer a late check out !”
for a small resort put a price even more than some a 5-star hotel . at some point it has it own uniqueness and virtue. but they would never offer you a late check out . not even one hour. whenever it's about 12:30pm. the staff will come to your door to push you out . that's really annoying me considering i have stayed here twice and each time i paid a lot here and like the style of it at the beginning . besides everytime when you check in .somehow you always have to wait a long time anyway . they should improve that otherwise i don't see the value of the rate .
There are not enough good things to say about this place. The staff and attention to detail was excellent and informative. The property is beautiful with a jungle feel but close enough to attractions. The ocean views are breath taking. Go.
Lovely tropical localtion”
We enjoyed staying there, You really hear tropical sounds, especially at night. However, it is not suitable for people with disabilities, as VERY steep. You really have to call the shuttle, whether it is for a transfer to the restaurant, the pool or tfr to town. All free, though. Japanese restaurant is outstanding and staff is wonderful.
Good location, a comfortable and relaxing resort. Nice spa and japanese restaurant just next to door. As told by the staff, they are constructing a new resort next to the existing Ambong Ambong. Looking forward to it! Recommended Ambong Ambong for resort in Langkiwi.
A splendid return stay for young couple ”
Again, we chose to return to this beautiful and quiet stay at Ambong since our first visit back at 2015. It has never ceased to amaze us with the excellent hospitality and also the room that we'd gotten was a different setting from the previous one, but was at a tiptop condition. Joe, the first person who greeted us, deserves a praise from both of us as when we were busy checking in, he took the initiative to put our luggages into our room. The manager in charge, noticed our similar names on the paper, and offered us a bottle of wine in his way of showing appreciation on our return stay. Also, the hotel was too generous to organise a small cocktail party for all the guests on the eve of Chap Goh Meh, and we had a good time there chatting and toasting to a fantastic Yee Sang made by the organisers. Overall, a memorable stay again with this big family of Ambong. Please stay cool and keep growing. We will be back for sure. For return customers, please do contact them directly for better rates than ever.
Quiet, Serene, Relaxing ”
Booked this place as a replacement after Bon Ton Langkawi cancelled my booking after having paid for the rooms. Have to say it worked out for the best as Ambong Ambong provided a restful and blissful escape. Spacious rooms, the quiet and serenity of the retreat coupled by attentive and top notch service by its staff made it a truly memorable and relaxing holiday. Highly recommended.
Wonderful stay in the rainforest”
The road leading to the reception area is quite steep and small if u drive. Once at the lobby was greeted by Anna the manager who explained everything that I have to know. There is also a welcome drink. From the reception area to my suite is a very steep road up ahead. There is a hotel car provided though so u don't have to walk up.u will b given a handphone cos there is no telephone in the room. This hp can also b used to call driver if u lazy to walk down but I prefer to walk down but NOT Up. The balcony is huge overlooking the rainforest and the sea further ahead. There is a fridge, microwave oven, small conventional oven, tea coffee making facilities, cutleries, etc; at the balcony. There is even a wooden bathtub outside which is something unique. The bedroom area is spacious. The shower overlooking the forest. This suite is ideal for those who wants to have a quiet and relaxing time together with ur loved ones.
Best Experience ”
Lovely accommodation in the midst of the jungle. The owner are Eco activists and this can be seen in the way the place were built, taking great care not to disturb the environment. I love butterflies and the place has a spice garden which attracted many species of butterflies. The friendly, passionate, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Gardener, Rajak even gave us a work around and educational talk. The highlight is not just about the place but the friendly, ever helpful staff is! Always smiley, always conversational, always ready to please. I want to give an example: Ambong Ambong units are built on a very stiff slope and they do provide transport from the entrance to the units which only need 10 but arduous minutes to walk. One evening after a heavy rain, I decided to drive my rented car up but found the road too steep and slippery and my car lost grip and began to slide back and hit a tree. My car bumper was badly dented and that was the beginning of my holiday. What a damper! But the driver can to the rescue. Not only he towed my car up, he said he can help me with the dent. Since the bumper is made of plastic, he tried using hot water to restore the dent but to no avail. They tried again the next day using a hair dryer to heat up the affected area. They were successful this time and the bumper restored. These staff must be commended for going out of the way, beyond the call of duty to help the guest! What a great experience I had of this holiday!
A hotel connected to the nature”
My boyfriend and I enjoy staying at Ambong Ambong so much. There were few monkeys jumping from tree to free outside your balcony. All you can hear is the sound of animals and the wind blowing the trees. Besides the comfort environment, all the staff are friendly. The hotel provided us a private driver who can send us to several designated locations such as Underwater World, thus transportation is not a problem. Hotel's owner invited us to join the cocktail party at night. It was fun and we learn a lot about Malaysia culture. We definitely will come back to this hotel, one night is never enough.
What a great place ”
We stayed at Ambong Ambong in May. What wonderful place. There was nothing to fault this place. The room, food and service was excellent. Because we stayed for over a week we were upgraded to a better room. What an upgrade, the room was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to make our stay . I would recommend this hotel.
Very unique experience..”
As what other guests have said about this hotel, the way up was steep. The same goes to the steps in the villa. So no small kids are allowed. Breakfast sent to room is heavenly. The bread, croissant, jams and honey, muesli and yogurt are the best! The staff were very helpful.. Great to have spent time in this resort.
Fantastic hotel built around a forest”
Our stay was fantastic. We received a surprise chalet upgrade and it was well received by the family; well used too. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel very much. We also had a chance to meet the owners who bought us drinks. We thought it was great! It was an overall a fantastic 1st time experience of Langkawi, the hotel stood out in our stay!
Great rooms, beautiful boutique resort”
I am very happy to have gotten a great price for a suite in Ambong Ambong via Agoda. It is the best place ive ever stayed at! The landscape is gorgeous. The staff were all pleasant and nice. After our swim, we were surprised with Lemon Infused Water. We booked a villa with the outdoor bath tub.. The view is simply amazing. Serenaded by soft crickets sounds. We had dinner at Unkaizen just near the hotel, it was delicious and prepared in a big serving. The red bean ice cream was reall tasty. All in all no complaints, WE LOVED THE PLACE!
