Amazing place to stay! Hidden from the noise of Pantai Cenang. Beautifully integrated into the forest. High attention to details. Awesome people working there. Sweet black&white monkeys as permanent residents:-)

We are truly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the busy stretch of Pantai Cenang. Having intruded into their habitat, we were sensitive and very conscious not to over built and we restricted our accommodation to only 11 units. We own more land that leads up to the top of the hill but we have made a firm...

My sister and I invited our parents from Germany to join us to Malaysia, as we haven't seen seem in a long while. And we definitely chose the right place to stay at! Words can't express how happy my parents have been during our time at Ambong Ambong. All of us enjoyed the friendly and courteous service provided by the...

I am really glad your parents enjoyed staying with us. All the cottages look a bit drab from the outside but this is deliberate as we did not want to compete with the magnificence of the jungle and choose muted colours and an understated design. The contrast between the external and the very well appointed interior very often creates the...

Our stay at Ambong Ambong was amazing! The staff, the apartment, the location are great. There is a small but very comfortable swimming pool. You can also walk in 5 minutes to a calm beach. The staff is happy to bring you there and pick you up. You can ask the staff to make a reservation for Japanese restaurant Unkaizan...

Yes you are right ...we are small and will always remain small with only 11 units . Most hoteliers think it is not a viable business proposition and we have proven them wrong and we wish more would take the route less traveled. Being small has the many advantages; like knowing your guests by their name and knowing their personal...

Nestled up in the hills, this amazing hotel is a place of rest and relaxation. The room and bathroom were spaciously clean and modern. Kitchen was well equipped for early morning continental breakfast prep for early morning excursions.(The staff upon request prepares breakfast the night before in your room if you cannot make 8:30 am breakfast due to your schedule)....

Thank you for the great review. The staff very much appreciate being acknowledged, and likes to know that they have made a difference. We are just about the only small hotel in such a unique environment, a jungle setting on a steep hill-slope that overlooks the sea and yet within a very short walk to good beaches, shops and restaurants....

Our four night stay at Ambong Ambong was magical. Not only is the location amazing, up in the mountains and surrounded by wildlife, but the staff are the most cheerful and helpful we have encountered anywhere on our travels. We had a studio apartment which was well appointed, extremely spacious and immaculately clean. The resort is built on the side...

Thank you for a lovely review and I think you have aptly described our place.The location is unique as it is built on a steep slope overlooking the Andaman sea. Some units are built around the existing trees and at a higher elevation, it seems to merge with the forest. The staff are cheerful and very accommodating mainly because they...

A big big thank you too for choosing Ambong-Ambong! Many of our guests say they had trouble finding us and some have suggested that we list on the hotel category but we chose to remain where we are in "Speciality Lodging" on Tripadvisor. As you mentioned we are different and we try to break away from the run of the...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights. After traveling through Malaysia for two weeks this was our last stop before we went home again. We were therefore looking for something relaxing, quiet and a bit offside from the main touristic places - and this was exactly what we have found at Ambong Ambong! The whole staff was very...

It is surprising how many people use Ambong-Ambong as a place to stay, relax and catch their breath after a long tour. Most frequently travelers who have partied at the nearby Thai islands of Koh Lipe stay with us for a few days to recover before leaving for home. They find the serenity that we offer a welcome respite from...

The all I can say is that I look forward to going back again to Langkawi and staying again in this beautiful and perfect place. Amazing view to beach forest, lovely room, great staff, nice swimming pool which made us chill out there for half a day. Adding to all above said, beautiful scenery in cafe with perfect breakfast.
