We stayed for 4 nights in Ambong Ambong. We had an amazing time and were spoilt by the staff there! This property is built on quiet a steep hill.

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Apart from yoga we also offer meditation classes (by a very experienced teacher) and cooking. Most tourist activities in Langkawi are out-doorish and physical and we like to complement them with spiritual and cultural experiences. The mosquitoes are a pest. At this time of the year when it rains it... More

We enjoyed 6 days and 5 nights at this rainforest retreat. We met a very kind and extremely helpful staff and stayed in one of the studios where we met the original population of the forest: a bunch of monkeys. The view and the relaxing comfort of the rooms is awesome. Although we didn't like the Cenang beach, we enjoyed... More

Thank you for your lovely review. You are absolutely right that "the original population of the forest" has remained with us all these 5 years! Not only that, you will often see baby dusky leaf monkeys which are a delightful orange in colour clinging on to their mothers. We made a concerted attempt not to disturb their habitat and built...

We were at Ambong Ambong for one week and had a great time! It is a beautiful resort build on a steep hill, but the drivers will bring you up and down whenever you want.

Thank you for the kind words. We like people to arrive as guests and to leave as friends. We deliberately leave the buildings in plain colours so as not to compete with the magnificent jungle. It is only when a guest enters a room that the painstaking care that we put into each room becomes apparent. Razak (Roger), the Gardener,... More

We stayed in the room highest up and looked out over the amazing forest. There was the cutest monkeys in a tree outside our window and we loved being able to enjoy the closeness to nature. The room was beautiful, clean and the staff were amazing and helpful :)

It was truly an amazing yoga retreat. We love the breakfast spread, the scent of the room, friendliness of the staffs, and being in (almost) the rainforest.

This small resort (11 rooms) really deserves to be called a retreat. It is close enough to (touristy) entertainment and restaurants on Cenang beach, but the rooms themselves are secluded in a green surrounding where we saw monkeys and a monitor lizard. You can have breakfast until late, or delivered to your room. The small swimming pool is also surrounded... More
