We stayed at Amber Sands for 11 nights with our son of 3.5 and absolutely loved it. Staff is extremely friendly and go to great lengths to make you feel at home. The restaurant is very high quality and probably among the best on the island. The resort is nice and small and it felt safe enough to have our...

Amber has long been prized as a rare and precious gem. And Amber Sands Beach Resort on the beautiful island of Koh Chang deserves that same admiration. The beach has an inviting amber hue; the gardens are magnificent and the bungalows reflect the lovely Thai architecture seen all over Thailand. But the true glowing gems are owners Julian and Cheryl,...

I spent 2 weeks at Amber Sands after extensive research into where to stay. I hate large resorts with lots of people much preferring intimate small and preferably owner run properties. Amber Sands did not disappoint. Everything was exactly as described on their website and by the majority of TripAdvisor reviews. The location is great with fantastic views over to...

We stopped by to have a lunch at their restaurant and at the same time we visited this resort. It's a lovely place, very calm, clean with a beautiful garden full of flowers, plants and trees. The restaurant was very peaceful. We choose the Chef recommendations and we were not disappointed. It was very tasty. We met the owners who...

Our 2nd stay in this beautiful, well-run resort, right on the beach. Spent ten days here and didn't want to leave. Julian and Cheryl have worked hard to create a tranquil paradise on this east side of the island. It's well away from the madness of the west side, but only about 15 minutes by car to White Sand Beach....

A Little Corner in Paradise... That sums up how we feel about Amber Sands. We felt it the moment we arrived. The first email communication that we had with Julien had already set the tone. He made everything easy; from ferry transfers, to online payment, to advice. Upon arrival, Julian and Cheryl introduced themselves and took us (two couples) on...

Nice, but to pay extra for a breakfast in Thailand when paying already quite a lot for the bungalow brings down the impression. Located near the ferry port this is a perfect stop-over when travelling. Very friendly staff and management. Clean and fresh, nice pool, and steps away from the beach.

Think of a vacation spot that unwinds your mind, frees your spirit and rejuvenates the soul. That is one way to describe the experience my wife and I had staying at Amber Sands. From the picturesque sunrises, to the wonderful service, Amber Sands will be a place that will have a special place in your book of life. There are...

A very nice, small and quiet resort with a small private beach. Colour of sand: amber! The rooms are genuine thai-style and very nice but maybe not 5-star. Let´s say 4,4! The restaurant has superb food, and the staff is definitely 5-star.

We've stayed almost a week at Amber Sands. The bungalow was beautiful, the restaurant great. But most of all, the staff was very helpful and professional. We've enjoyed the personal attention given by the owners, Julian and Cheryl. The massage service by the resort is perfect. The resort is located on the Northeast side of Koh Chang, which is quite...
