Sorry for the late review, but I have been meaning to say that Ambong Ambong was amazing! I stayed with 4 friends in the 4 person cottage in October 2016 and we had the best holiday ever. The location is wonderful, 10 min walk from Pantai Tengah and about a 5 min drive from Pantai Cenang. The staff really make...

Thank you for the review. As you know we offer 2 breakfast options; guests can have a cooked meal in the cafe or have a continental breakfast on the balcony of their rooms, as you did. Actually many enjoy the this option which enables them to eat slowly at leisure while enjoying the views from the balcony. We have guests...

Thank you for the lovely review. It is so good to get guests who just enjoy the room setting, the jungle environment and the lovely views. Traveling can be a very tiring exercise and many guests choose us as a place of respite to recoup and recover. Other guests, like you, especially those who lead very stressful lives, find us...

Hi, thanks for the review. The staff have been asked to treat all our guests as if they are our personal house guests staying in our home. If the guest wants something extra, the first reaction is to just comply with it, without worrying whether it is part of the deal or not. In our travels, we sometimes get irritated...

Family atmosphere, felt like one of the team! Great relaxed stay and they thought of everything...! I will miss it, but will be back! Highly recommended! From a Driver to a Phone! Felt deep in the jungle but just a short walk from the beach!

Yes we do create a family atmosphere but Ambong is operated by a professional team. The staff are trained to be sensitive to the needs of the guests but will always respect privacy and the quiet time that guests may want to experience. The jungle setting and ambience seems to induce a compelling sense of peace and serenity and many...

We booked here as a treat for my husband's birthday after reading good reviews and we were not disappointed. You cannot really call this a hotel, as it's much much more. We went for a studio room which was immaculately clean, the décor very well considered, the view stunning, everything you could wish for. The staff here are above and...

Thank you for the review. You are absolutely right; we are more than a hotel and indeed we try to get away from the hotel culture. People travel so much these days and often it is just a matter of checking out from one anonymous hotel room and checking into another equally anonymous room. What we try to do is...

The villa was superb, the staff made us feel loved from the minute we arrived and the whole experience was fabulous.

Thank you for the excellent review. It is one of our main attractions that we are secluded on a hillside in a serene forest not far away from the noise and bustle of the main tourist areas and yet only less than 5 mins away from a whole bunch of fine restaurants and shops. The staff are always willing to...

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review and we truly appreciate that. Most of our guests tell us that the one determining factor on the choice of their hotel is the consistent good reviews they read of us on Trip advisor. Thank you once again.
