Amber Sands Beach Resort is a small, family run resort on the tranquil east coast of Koh Chang. Located on a quiet, almost deserted beach. It’s been winning awards and accolades from guests for well over a decade and has made Tripadvisor’s ‘Top 25 B&B’s in Thailand’ several times.
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)
The resort has sweeping ocean views and a dramatic jungle canopy to the rear. The bungalows are set in spacious landscaped gardens and have sea views. To maintain exclusivity, there are just eight spacious air-conditioned bungalows set in the tropical garden. Accommodation is in Superior rooms plus the Beach House and a large Family bungalow that can sleep 5 people.
The sea is quite shallow on the east coast of the island and so there’s also a fresh water swimming pool for guests to use. SUP boards and kayaks are available for hire. The resort’s open-sided restaurant is steps from the beach and offers traditional Thai dishes, a range of Western foods and some children’s options to cater for most tastes.
Whether you are looking to laze by the pool, soak up the sun, read a book and recharge the soul or choose some action packed activities, there are many options to enable you to set your own pace of holiday.
Amber Sands Beach Resort is definitely recommended if you are looking for a far better value, not to mention quieter, beach bungalow than you’ll find on the busier west coast. ( Also on this small beach are Sunrise Beach Resort and Serenity Resort. These are also very highly rated. )
Great rooms and lovely service 😀 - beautiful place - wonderful staff and the owner goes the extra mile to make his guests happy. picked us up at the ferry for free and provided lots of help and friendly and useful advise. nice food. 😞 - nothing
Definitley ticked all of our boxes :) 😀 - Friendly, peaceful relaxed resort with a lovely beach, swimming pool. The service and food are fabulous. It is in the quieter part of the island which suited us perfectly. There are other bars and restaurants along the beach so it is possible to walk elsewhere if you fancy a change of scenery. 😞 - nothing
Very good 😀 - Perfect place if you want to chill out, it's very calm and quite. I really like the resort, the bungalows are big, clean and good equipped. So comfortable! The owner is very nice and helpful. Restaurant has very good food and coffee. The beach has really amber sand, for us that was ok. 😞 - The water was not so perfect, totally not clear, dark and looks like "dirty". But the resort also has small swimming pool.
Exceptional 😀 - lovely huts right on the beach. staff are just lovely. food and drink’s excellent 😞 - some parts needed a bit of a clean. curtains in room for example.
Super relaxing 😀 - Quiet and relaxing. The room is just as the pictures, bed comfy, food exceptional. The beach is not long but walkable and when the sea is not inviting, there is a pool. Simon was a super host, he gave us a ride into town a couple of times but mostly we stayed in relaxing and eating at the restaurant. Definitively recommended if you prefer the quiet life. 😞 - Everything was great for us.
Superb host and fantastic quiet beach location 😀 - Thanks Simon, we really enjoyed our time staying with you at Amber Sands.
