This place was fantastic. The hosts were incredibly helpful, the staff kind, the place is small and intimate, and one would be hard pressed to find a nicer, cleaner beach on the island. The food was fresh and incredible, very affordable. After exploring the island and staying here, I think that one would be silly to stay elsewhere on the...

Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review and for your kind comments Ethan. We agree with everything you say, especially your comment that one would be silly to stay elsewhere on the island! That might get me into trouble. ;)

This beautiful boutique resort was really amazing. Julian, Cheryl and their staff were very friendly and helpful. The resort consists only of eight bungalows all with a view to the sea and beautiful garden. We had a very relaxing time in this resort. Good restaurant in this resort, furthermore, elephant tracking, scooter trips around the island, looking at fishing villages...

We are very blessed to own this lovely resort on Koh Chang. The setting on this calm bay, away from the hustle and bustle of the island, helps create an atmosphere of tranquility for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. But, as you say, there is also so much to do and see on the island, if our guests want that....

We stayed for two weeks in the very attractively bungalows of Amber Sands Beach Resort. Our stay was very comfortable with two small kids. There was a babybed, babychair in the restaurant (even babycutlery), games, lots of toys to play with (on the beach/ at the pool), a swing and even a table for the kids to paint and draw...

After traveling for many hours it was so nice to be greeted by Mr. Cowburn on the Centerpoint pier. He instantly made us feel very welcome. We had looked at many pictures of Amber Sands Beach Resort, but no pictures can describe this place. The feeling of being so close to the wild jungle but still with so much comfort...

We loved our stay at Amber Sands. It's a beautiful, quiet and fairly small resort, but there's nothing lacking. Great restaurant, beautiful gardens. Cute cottages/rooms. We liked the honesty bar, which allowes you to grab a cold beer even when the restaurant is closed. Georgeous sea views. Great massage service. Julian, Cheryl and their team do their absolute best to...

Firstly, my apologies for this long-overdue review. We have lived in Bangkok for the last three years and in that time have had four holidays at Amber Sands. Our first and second holiday were with my fiancés parents (Jan and Chris) who visited us from England. On their second visit we talked about going somewhere else but couldn't think of...

The service is absolutely amazing. I have never experienced such a great service. We only stayed there for one day (such a pity) but the owners almost felt like family after this day. The accomodation is very pretty. The rooms are well decorated! Lush gardens next to the pool and both cottages at the sea and in the gardens are...

For us the best place at the nice east coast. Small resort with pretty bungalows, nice outside restaurant in very chilled atmosphere. Cuisine is superb and with preorder you can have whatever you like. Very, very nice owners and staff. Really great to explore the quite unspoiled east coast...go for it

Thank you for coming back Gabi, and for your kind comments. It was wonderful to see you and the family at Amber Sands again. You're right about exploring the east coast. It is such an unspoiled area with so much to experience to enhance one's holiday. Mangrove forest walks, deserted white sand beaches, views, real old fashioned fishing villages, good...
