Watch the local taxis; they try to drop you at the bottom of the mountain and it’s impossible to get your suitcase up to reception. You then have to leave it unattended. I felt concerned as reception tried to sell me spa treatments over moving my luggage so a rocky start. That being covered I couldn’t really rate the lovely staff and accommodation. They were simply wonderful. Monkeys are so sweet but thieves :) watch your mobile and bright coloured nail varnish . Mine are all somewhere in the rainforest. You do need insect repellent. There are lots of mosquitoes. The staff will supply you if you forget and they don’t charge. The beach at the bottom of the mountain is stunning and not busy. Very clean ( no plastic) which seemed to be a problem as I traveled around Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam. Have a great stay!

Professional, helpful and friendly staff. Super responsive and took care of a minor bathroom issue within the hour. Helpful in planning day activities for my family. Rooms were spacious and clean. Very hilly grounds, so not for those with mobility issues (but reaort does offer shuttle service to drive guests to/from rooms). Very pleasant stay.

We absolutely loved our stay at Ambong Ambong. The staff were all very attentive, caring and friendly. The nature surrounding the villas is stunning, and so much love and thought is put into the hospitality experience. We are also vegan, so having a vegan restaurant was delightful! I am so looking forward to staying here again. This truly is a unique place.

Wonderful place for anyone who is looking for an eco-friendly hotel. Staff were very helpful and tried their best to make our stay comfortable. Just note that the property is on a hill, which requires climbing some stairs to get to your room. Transportation around the hotel is provided upon request.

Ambong Ambong is nestled in the rainforest which provides a lovely calming experience, the staff are so willing to assist you in any way including driving you to the restaurant and back to your room, would absolutely recommend to anyone travelling to langkawi, however they do need to change who does their laundry as we had a few items ruined

We will be back!
My husband and I stayed at Ambong Ambong's Canopy Suite for 4D3N for our wedding anniversary. It was an absolutely magical experience. The room was scenic, clean and well-maintained. It allows you to bask in nature very comfortably! We saw hornbills, giant squirrel, monitor lizard and dusty leaf monkeys during our stay. Don't worry, they were just in their natural habitat and didn't disturb us. There were activities there included in our stay and all you had to do was check if slots were still available. We did yoga, singing bowl and aerial yoga and had a great time! Food at both Rimba and Pegaga restaurants were great, but we really loved Pegaga as it was really quiet, naturesque and served delicious vegan food. The staff had fantastic customer service - before during and after our stay. We were super impressed. There are only 11 rooms there and the service was very personalised. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we would be shuttled by car up and down our rooms to the breakfast restaurants (Rimba and Pegaga) and down the hill to the entrance of the hotel whenever we want to go out. Staff were really prompt in replying us. They even went out of the way to bring us to restaurants that were another 5 minute drive outside of the hotel! Special mention to 2 staff who were extra kind and friendly and made our stay there exceptional: Putra and Lee. They regularly fetched us in the evening and morning respectively. Lee shared with us his story of working in the ho

Ambong ambong offers best service possible. My husband was suddenly ill during our stay and the staff went all out to help him and rest of family. I am truly appreciative of their support. Like to shout out for Lina. She has certainly gone beyond her duties to extend her services to us.
