My friend and I could not have been more delighted by this inviting, picturesque resort on the quiet northern coast of the island. Booking directly with owners Julian and Cheryl was a breeze and a mixup on our part about ferry landings was quickly remedied. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and truly felt at home, whether lounging by the...

We had an initial hiccup when checking in, which was the fault of the booking agent, and not Amber Sands. Julian sorted things out, and we appreciate his help in doing so. This lovely family run resort is ideal for families and couples. It's in a very peaceful location. The food served in the restaurant is exquisite! The Masaman curry...

We extended our stay because we liked it so much! Julien and his crew (especially the manager!) provide excellent service - regarding rooms, laundry, delicious food or anything related to travelling, transfers and tours. After we took a scooter to the other side of the island we were even more happy we stayed here...

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in early February. We were very impressed with everything. The resort is small, peaceful and relaxing so don't expect a party...although dinner can get quite lively with meeting new people and eating great food. The owners, Cheryl and Julian are very friendly, professional and run a great place. They arranged our transfer...

We stayed at the amber sands for 3 nights. Julian was a great host and lek (his manager?) was also very helpful. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. The beach is nice and you can use their paddle board and kayaks for free. It's only a couple of kms from the ferry and on the quieter side...

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....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience peace on Koh Chang's tranquil east coast in our small, family run resort metres from a quiet, almost deserted beach where we bring you a personal, individual experience. Only eight spacious air-conditioned bungalows, set in a tropical garden, all with views of the beach. Our fresh water pool provides an alternative. The thatch roof open-sided restaurant is steps from the beach and offers both traditional Thai dishes and a range of Western foods. ... more   less
