Lovely stay at Peaceful and Serene Villa's”

My husband, adult daughter and myself stayed at Ambong Ambong for two nights on a short stay in Langkawi. How I wished it had been a long stay - I just loved the small retreat hotel, it was a haven really. We had a two bedroom villa which was appointed so in tune with the feel of the place and more than spacious enough for us with a lovely big balcony to sit and relax on morning or night - with a view of the ocean. The room was surrounded by the rainforest and sound of the birds which just added the ambience of relaxation and peacefulness. Anna and all the staff from the front of house, housekeeping, gardeners and the driver were so friendly and helpful. On arrival Anna explained everything we would want to know from sites to visit, the surrounding area, best beaches and places to eat. Nothing was any trouble at all and the driver was available in a moment to drive you to and from your unit snuggled into the hill. We had a car to get us around the island's towns and attractions which is a must if you don't want to take taxi's in Langkawi. The resort is secludedly tucked away in the forest but we were in flat walking distance to shops and wonderful restaurants and just over the road from a lovely uncrowded beach. The breakfast was cooked fresh as ordered in a relaxing dining/sitting area but there was options for in villa dining. Comfy beds and pillows and a sheet as well as the doona was much appreciated. We would recommend couples or families to stay at Ambong Ambong for a relaxing, unhurried and peaceful time.

Unique rainforest retreat meters away from beach!”

Located nicely at hillside, Within rainforest, great spa, great breakfast, internet/wifi is ok, feel like living in the jungle sharing with the wildlife, very relaxing, private balcony where you can sit hours talking to your partner while listening to the sound of jungle, room is clean and nice,

Chose to stay at ambong-ambong for our first honeymoon. At first gOt problem to find the hotel at pantai tengah because the signboard at the junction does not look like as if there were hotel inside. The road leading to the hotel is steep. However you can park your car at the office only. There will be driver service to bring you to room with his car. else you just walk climb the staircase. Very relaxing because the hotel is at hillside covered by trees and the landscape is very nice. A few times encountered wildlife i.e. big lizard and monkeys(at a distance), really interesting. Since it was our first honeymoon, the manager anna and her team surprised us with many things that will remain in our memories :). hotel facilities are good, the room itself is comfortable, clean, smells nice, got private balcony with rainforest view, breakfast is ok and kettle, oven all good. Not much to complain honestly. Well worth the price, the beach is metres away walking, climbing the staircase to room can be quite tiring tho but there is driver can transfer you to your room from parking. I really recommend this for someone wanting something different. you have unobstructed view of rainforest and from my room can still see the sea at a distance. The ishan spa is ok too .didnt get the chance to try a Japanese restaurant below. Overall, really recommended! will return for sure

Fantastic Ambong Ambong”

Fantastic Ambong-Ambong This fantastic retreat is absolutely wonderful, perched on the hillside overlooking Pantai Tengah, isolated in its own little patch of rain forest really makes the stay special, close enough to everything you could ever need for a lively or quiet stay as your choosing, our suite was exceptional with an extraordinary view from the large open veranda, every day the view of the surroundings is beautifully relaxing, the wildlife that past by or visited everyday right in front of us was amazing, white bellied sea eagles, Brahimy kites, a pair of Oriental hornbills, dusky leaf monkeys, mischievous long tailed macaques, giant tree squirrels and a large monitor lizard, we have stayed at many boutique rain forest lodges but Ambong-Ambong is exceptional, yes the hill is steep but the retreat furnishes you with a mobile phone and drivers are on call all day which makes the experience easy and you could get very use to the service running you about at your desire, but the really great thing about this place is the extraordinary staff all of whom go out of their way to serve your every need in a warm and friendly manner, all in all a wonderful stay we are missing you, thank you !!!

The Pinnacle of Langkawi Hospitality.”

Upon arriving at Ambong Ambong Rainforest Retreat, rest assured of an ambiance within nature that will remain with you a lifetime... the ultimate in luxury and service, this beautiful boutique hotel offers far more than you would imagine or hope for from a small intimate location... being small enables a personal and memorable stay with superb service far beyond expection and that which you might get from bigger established hotels... on our stay we were greatly impressed by the personal service, whereby staff knew your name, ensured your absolute wellbeing and whereby nothing was too much trouble... the accommodation was superb, I can personally recommend the 3 storey cottage which surpassed expectation... having a driver available to drop and collect us within a defined area in Langkawi was an added bonus which was a beautiful and helpful surprise... food also was delicious and varied, with freshly cooked breakfasts and beautiful food with sunsets to die for at nearby Rimba.

An experience of a lifetime”

We visited for our honeymoon in January 2017. I initially booked Danna Langkawi but a few days before the flight my reservation got cancelled. Then I started looking up for hotels on Agoda and Ambong Ambong was available and we booked that considering the fact other top hotels were not available. Honestly, the name sounded a little weird to us but that's the only choice we had... But what an experience it was...I would not call it a 5 start hotel experience because there were no formalities and check-in/check-out you have at those places. It felt like home... we arrived at the airport and took a cab to reach Ambong Ambong... Just as we reached the place we saw a gentlemen standing there with a huge smile and glow on his face to welcome us. His name was Joe and what a man he was! He took our pictures happily. We asked for one he took around three. Then he escorted us to the restaurant area where I just had to do my signatures and my room was ready. No long check-in process. They gave us the welcome drink while I signed the papers. And did I tell you what sort of a hotel it was? We are in a rain forest with trees and nature all around us and sound of birds and monkeys echoing everywhere while we can get a view of the ocean from there. There was no lobby. The architecture was such that you park your car and go up-hill to get into your room. Every room had direct access to ensure complete privacy. And its literally on a hill so you better be very fit physically if you want to do the adventure or else you can call the jeep and it will drop you to your room. Every room has a cell phone to keep you connected with the hotel staff. You are standing downstairs and you need the car, just give them a call and the car will be there within a minute. The room was extremely nice. Very spacious and had a kitchen and private balcony too where you could enjoy the meals. My wife does complete Hijab so the privacy part really helped us as she could easily go out in the balcony in her

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!

A magical retreat from the beach.”

I had wanted to stay close to the beach in Langkawi, but the only comparable places that were away from the crowded Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah were far more expensive. This is a small, boutique hotel, a short ten min walk from the beach, set high up in the hills overlooking Pantai Cenang. Rooms are superb for the value - amazing linens, towels, etc. Lots of wildlife off your little porch, secluded from views of neighbors, terrific views of the beach and sunset. Had a giant, 8" Today gecko every night by our front door, and myriad birds and butterflies, and a large troop of monkeys wandering the forest above us. Facilities are limited but more than adequate, a small, relaxing pool, a terrific spa, a platform studio for yoga, and a small cafe with wine, coffee, tea, etc. Breakfast every morning is terrific. Best part of Ambong Ambong is the staff - kind, attentive, organizing whatever you want. Best staff I've ever seen at a hotel this size. Highly, highly recommended.

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!

Beautiful retreat, perfect for nature lovers”

Great Service, Modern Amenities

Ambong Ambong is ideal for nature lovers with beautiful green surroundings and wildlife. We spent all day in our studio, where you can sit on the balcony amongst the trees and get a glimpse of the Andaman sea in the distance. The individual houses were built with minimal impact to the surroundings and it feels as though you are in a treehouse! All the modern amenities including free wifi, satellite TV, airconditioning and hot water heater are also included which give the rooms a very homely feel. The hotel is within walking distance of pantai tengah however the walk leading up to the rooms are very steep, the hotel also provides transport to and from the hotel and right up to your doorstep if you do not fancy the steep walks. There is a Japanese restaurant (excellent food - best live sashimi) and a Spa which is within the vicinity of the hotel. There is a yoga center at the hotel which provides yoga classes and ayurvedic treatments. Will come back for the ayurvedic treatments

Superb experience and hotel service”

Service, Location, Comfort

The hotel staffs were well-trained. We were served with our names at the reception even before we gave them our passports! 1. They never fail to remember our names and greeted us by our names. Even those we have never met know our names and our purpose of travel. This is top-notch service! 2. House keeping twice a day to make sure the studio room is at its best condition whenever you step in. 3. I love the part where they do not emphasize on being eco-green and "save the environment". Other hotels in the region always paste stickers all over the room to ask us guests to be considerate on the environment to not change towels or switch off the electricity when not in use. At Ambong Ambong, they changed our towels with fresh clean towels twice a day, they kept the aircon switched on so we can enjoy a well-cooled room after a hot day by the beach. 4. The hotel is located on a top of a mountain. They provided us with a mobile phone so we can call anytime for their driver to fetch us up and down the hotel. With immediate effect 5. We had the best studio room on the top floor with a high ceiling, and pretty flowers displayed in a heart shape with two beautiful swans knowing that we were here for our honeymoon. They also prepared fruits and a chocolate cake in the fridge! Thank you Ambong Ambong for the more than perfect service. Really appreciate your team's effort in delivering an awesome holiday experience.

Amazing getaway in the Rain Forest of Langkawi ”

Small locally operated family hotel in Langkawi. Owners are well known in the community. If you want to be pampered and enjoy a unique experience in Langkawi I highly recommend you stay here. They have an amazing breakfast menu, freshly made meals. Not like other hotels which only offer a standard buffet. The staff are impeccable and cater to ensure your experience in Langkawi is a memorable one. The staff here will help you navigate the island and can recommend activities, restaurants and stores during your stay in Langkawi. Hotel is surrounded by wildlife and has amazing views of the ocean. Each set of rooms here are nestled on the hillside within the forest. If you have issues with mobility, you may want to consider a more typical boring hotel. If you enjoy the outdoors and walking, hiking then you will enjoy Ambong Ambong. The staff will transport you to your villa if you're too tired to hike.

Nature at its best”

The views, nature and wildlife

We have a fantastic life living and working in Malaysia.(Originally from England) So many places to visit and see wildlife at its best. My wife said she would like to visit a rainforest or the like. I booked Ambong Ambong because of the pictures and reviews. We were picked up from the airport by our Malay friends/adopted family who took us to the hotel where we were met and taken by 4x4 to our room by the hotel guys (Fantastic staff). When we walked in the door we were met by an open verandah outlooking the forest. This is the lounge / kitchen area. Also a wooden bath (Hot and Cold water) where you can soak and have a glass of champagne. Next was the bedroom with a four poster bed and ensuite bathroom which both have huge windows and panoramic views.Our friends who all visited us could not beleive the fantastic views On the three days we were there we saw Dusky Leaf and Macac monkeys, Hornbills, Oriels (yellow bird) Giant Squirrels, tree squirrels and many small lizards. All of these literally in front of our room in the trees. Do the Cable Car and Mangrove Tour, but be there early to avoid the queues. We stayed in 1Studio.

Simply superb”

Ambong Ambong exceeded our expectations. The location is excellent; the appartments are in the middle of the jungle, where you will be able to spot all kinds of exotic plants and animals, and at walking distance from the Pantai Tengah beach. Moreover, they have a free taxi service to Cenang. The service was better than we ever had in any hotel before. The friendly and proactive staff will move earth and heaven to make your stay as pleasant as possible and will arrange everything for you that you need. The rooms where very comfortable and the top rooms have a great view. The breakfast was very nice, even though the options are somewhat limited, and if you want to go out early in the morning they will put it in the fridge in your room the night before. In short, I highly recommend this hotel.

Blissful and romantic stay”

The suite overlooking the ocean, surrounded by rain forest, peaceful and romantic

We had the most memorable, and peaceful stay with Ambong Ambong. From the moment we check in, we were treated the very best by Nazim (manager) and the staffs, they were friendly, helpful and kind. The SINGA 3 suite was breathtaking, overlooking the ocean and is surrounded by the beautiful rain forest, the wooden bath tub complements everything. We also signed up yoga class with them, Dorothy the yoga instructor is very knowledgeable. We tried their Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant for dinner, the sashimi was superb! Definitely worth the money. Throughout the three days, we really enjoyed our stay and could not bear to leave on our last day. Ambong Ambong and the team had truly outdone themselves. P.S: Be prepared to bring mosquito repellent while visiting Langkawi.

Peaceful sweet retreat”

Natural surroundings within a rainforest

What can I say about this gorgeous piece of tranquillity that has not been said before. Being just recently opened in the last 7 months this is already proving to be a well oiled team. On landing at Langkawi a text message greeted us with a welcome note and instruction to use a taxi for transport to the establishment with the promise of having the cab fare reimbursed by Ambong Ambong. I thought that was an unexpected but very nice touch. This very special and happy feeling continued throughout our 3 nights stay. Arfa and Arafat who met us on arrival are just great....they just cant do enough to make us feel comfortable with little surprises that makes the stay that much special. Thank you both for the lovely arrangement of flowers & leaves daintly laid out on the bed & pillows on our last night there. It was a wonderful memory to cherish. Living on top of the trees amidst sounds of nature in a room that combines the benefits of modern living, yet retaining the typical Malaysian charm is bliss for romantics and those who are travelled-weary. Thank you Anna,Arfa & Arafat for making it all sweet.

Superb Relaxing Stay in the Rainforest Hotel”

Green and quiet surroundings with very good and thoughtful room layout, attentiveness and warm welcome of the staff , strong and good wifi

When we arrived in Langkawi, some staff at the airport were not familiar with the hotel, but the attendance at the taxi counter knew where it is and immediately gave us the ticket to one of the taxi. After 20 min inside the local taxi, we arrived in a very green retreat hotel. The pick-up came immediately and the check-in was done inside the room. Nizam was very helpful throughout our stay and made the stay even more enjoyable. The room was well layed-out, and well thought out. Big shampoo n soap bottles, consistently great hot shower, big storage area, great terrace, easy and clean kitchenette, and good wifi are just some of the luxury we enjoyed during our holiday. The hotel was built among the rainforest of Langkawi in Pantai Tengah area. Even the steep steps to go in and out of the room, do not stop us to be active and out-and-about on the island. Recommendable to rent a car when you are in Langkawi. Great stay, great holiday, great memory.

Little paradise in the rainforest”

Absolutely fantastic place. We got a studio with a great view and stayed for 3 nights. Loved absolutely everything, the room, the breakfast, the quietness, the wilderness around, and of course - the staff! That's truly something that makes Ambong Ambong so exceptional: its people. We enjoyed every second in the company of Lee, Joe, and others! Saying hi from Luxembourg! I also treated myself to the spa service in the hotel and found it very nice and truly relaxing. The Japanese restaurant nearby is also top notch and was very useful to have a lovely dinner at on the first night during crazy thunderstorm. Overall, if we go back to Langkawi, we will definitely stay in this place again.

Great place for Retreat - greatly recommended”

Near tourist district, lots of place to eat, walk to beautiful beaches, very clean and tidy place, helpful service

This resort is very well place in its location to the tourist district. The rooms are very clean and tidy. Well presented resort. The pathway to the units are very steep, great for building legs muscles. A car can be called to take to your units. There are wildlifes on the balcony (if you are lucky). Monkeys, pygmy squirrels, etc are all around. Require very keen eyes to catch a sight of them. The Ambong-Ambong's team is very good and helpful. Anna and her team will go out of their way to help you. Anna had provided very helpful tourist information in regard to Pulau Langkawi. The Ishan Spa - adjacent to the retreat is great. Beautiful view of the sea from the rooms. Especially sunset. Great service. I had travelled the whole island and found that in this area is by far the best location to relax. Other locations are very remote and some are down right boring. Langkawi is not like KL or Penang in terms of shopping, but sufficient.
