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...

5 reasons to stay at Ambersands Beach... 1. Their location is from a film set. Palmtrees, panoramic view and sunshine. 2. Their staff is super friendly but also very skilled and professional. Cheryl, Debbie and Julian take REAL care of you. 3. The rooms are Thai style. Great beds. And absolutely everything works. 4. The FOOD. It's from heaven. The...

Ko Chang Island attracted us for its isolated character and wild nature, and the many activities offered on the island. Thanks to our travel guide... We discovered the Amber Sands, a resort of 6 individual bungalows located at the seaside on the east coast ; an oasis where tranquility and serenity are assured. Julian, Cheryl and their team gave us...

Just returned to Australia after a lovely 4 days stay at the Amber Sands in early January. We were a group of 8 comprising two families (4 adults and 4 teenagers) and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of accommodation on Koh Chang. Nothing was too much trouble for owner Julian, even though he was out of country...

We tried only the restaurant because we stayed in a (also very nice) resort in the neighborhood. The kitchen and also the service of the restaurant are great! Also on the big tables always everybody got his food at the same time, the Panang was incredible good, the fishburger absolutely impressive (order extra mayonnaise, i would recommend) and the tom...

We stopped here for a late lunch, luckily shortly before they closed for the afternoon (closed between 2:30 p.m. And 6:00 p.m.). It was so peaceful and such well maintained grounds. We had garlic pepper shrimp and Thai fried rice with seafood. Good sized portions and reasonable price given the quality of the food and the setting. Would love to...

Ha ha! You do have a point there about keeping Amber Sands a secret. We often find ourselves caught in that dilemma ourselves when we travel and find that perfect holiday spot that we don't want to share with others. But we'll always try to find you a place. The only thing is to book reasonably early in advance, especially...
