My partner and I stayed at Amber Sands for a week in April and we couldn’t recommend it enough. Simon and Ning were brilliant hosts - everything exceeded our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food was outstanding, the beds are huge and so comfortable! Amber Sands is a beautiful resort for relaxation and we cannot wait to return in the near future. Thank you Simon and Ning!
Thank you for the good service and care. We had a very nice stay at Amber Sands. Simon created a lovely place to relax and enjoy a holiday. Also nice to discover the more quite side of Koh Chang. Hope things go back to "normal" again and more people will start traveling again.
Came for a little getaway trip, and ended up staying longer than expected. They made us feel at home right away and went out of their way to accommodate us. Would highly recommend! I just didn't want to leave. Amazing food, rooms were amazing!
The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Very laid back atmosphere. Nice swimming pool and free to use kayaks/paddleboards for use on the beach. The beach isn't as nice as some of the others on the island but there are no sandflies. Generous portion sizes at the restaurant. We rented the whole resort, 8 rooms, and had a great time. We would definitely return. It is on the quieter side of the island if you want to avoid the hordes during holidays.
My partner and I intended a first night stay at Amber Sands before checking other hotels on Koh Chang. In fact, we found this resort so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing we stayed our entire vacation. We were struck by how seemingly unaffected by Covid19 the resort appears. Of course this is not the case but our highest praise to the management team and staff who have maintained an exceptional level of service and attention to detail through the crisis. The grounds and villas are beautifully presented with a full and diverse menu available in the restaurant. The food is delicious! Located on the east side of the island, it is ideal for exploring the coastlines, mountains and waterfalls. We also made use of the free kayaks and bicycles. A huge thank you to Simon and all our new friends at Amber Sands, (and for helping us with our car-trouble on the last day). We highly recommend this adorable resort, the perfect retreat during the current crisis.…
It's the pleasant clean feel of the hardwood floor in your bungalow, set in the lush garden. It's the convenience of no set mealtimes: anything you fancy from the extensive menu at any time throughout the day. It's the prompt and adequate response to every request or question. It is the perfect gateway for exploring the island, then return to bask in the sun of the staff's hospitality and the Zen-like quality of the place. Nothing not to like about Amber Sands!
We´ve been at the Amber Sands in February 2018. We really liked the resort at that time. And so we decided to come back in March 2020. Well, it was like coming home. The resort is still an oasis of relaxation. The Superior Bungalow has all what we need. The bathroom has been renovated. The garden area is beautifully laid out and is maintained daily. The staff and of course Simon and Ning are extremely friendly and helpful. The food in the resort restaurant is also excellent (also applies to breakfast)! If you want to spend a few quiet days on Koh Chang, the east coast and the Amber Sands are the first address. We will come back!
After an very busy and emotional week we booked this small but luxury resort in order to relax. We had several questions about transport and possibilities to book an extra bungalow for family members. All questions were kindly answered by proprietor Simon, who gave us a very confidence-inspiring impression. We were picked up from Trat Airport by limousine Simon arranged (500 Baht pp) and brought to the resort (even the ferryboat was included). The resort was beautiful with warm spacious bungalows almost hidden between palmtrees. Beds were good, bathroom simple, airco and fan very good. The garden is really beautiful an I counted 5 gardeners working whole days in the garden with a variety of orchids and other flowers. The amber colored beach was cleaned and harked by the gardeners twice a day. The kitchen with extensive menu served everything on the menu from 8 am - 9 pm. After 9 o'clock pm the bar is no longer staffed, but they call it then a "trust bar". You can take drinks from the bar (all drinks) and you can write down what you have consumed. Maybe because the resort was half empty (because of Covid-19), but we never experienced a servicelevel this high. And we have had holidays in much more expensive resorts! Scooters, bicycles, diving, yachting, massage; name it and Simon and staff delivered. Staff was fully focused on making their visitors happy. Important note: Amber Sand Resort is situated on the Eastside of Koh Chang. So no beach parties, no live music bars! It is much quieter than the Westside. BUt also much saver, because very few traffic and nearly no hills and no hairpin bends (Westside does!)…
There's nothing better than Amber Sands on the entire island. I fully understand why they were chosen one of the top 25 small inns in the whole Thailand. The resort is located on the quiet, green coast near the national park, far away from the horrors of mass tourism attractions ( west coast of the island ). Lush, well kept garden seems a paradise, with 8 bungalows hidden behind tropical plants. pool. beach and restaurant are just few steps away. Service super professional, discreet and helpful, always ready to help to solve any problem or fulfill your wish. Tasteful, clean rooms decorated in oriental style. Very clean. As an experienced traveler I can compare lodging offers and Amber Sands became one of my absolute favourite spots. A hidden gem.
Had a lovely 4 night stay here on Koh Chang’s quiet East coast at Amber Sands. Rooms are lovely with large bed, a/c, kettle, fridge and safe. Beautiful, lush, well maintained garden and small pool with plenty of sun loungers around pool and on beach. Great bar & restaurant serving delicious food - We ate Thai but "Western" style available. Short walk down the beach to Souk restaurant bar and a couple of small resorts. Great base to explore this side of Island - Loads of information available. Simon was extremely helpful! He collected us & dropped us off in his pick up & even showed us how to ride scooters (I’m 57 & hadn’t rode one for over 30 years!) so we could explore the East coast, which was fantastic! Highly recommended for a visit! Thank you very much to Simon & his team for such a lovely stay! …
