Amber Sands Beach Resort is a romantic and small resort located on the north-east coast of Koh Chang on the quiet beach of Sae Daeng (which means "Amber Sands"). It's at 5 minutes from the ferry pier and 15 minutes from White Sand beach. Far away from the busiest tourist locations, this resort is the perfect place if you are looking for a calm, charming, and beautiful resort to spend relaxing holidays. The owners and the staff will do all to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
Amber Sands Beach Resort has been selected as one of the Top 25 resorts in the whole of Thailand, and is the only resort on Koh Chang to have received the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice award for the last 6 consecutive years. This shows consistency and the high level of service and satisfaction of their guests.
There is no pubs or shops around the resort and it is the point. This small family resort with its 8 spacious bungalows implanted in a beautiful and colourful tropical garden and surrounding the swimming-pool is extremely quiet and the owners are doing their best to make you feel you are in your home.
The assets of this resort are the hospitality of the owners, the comfort of each room, the quiet amber sands beach, the beautiful garden and the tranquillity of this place.
There are 8 individual bungalows facing the sea and surrounding the swimming-pool. They are located in a beautiful tropical garden that the staff and owners are taking big care; the grass is perfectly cut, lots of plants and beautiful orchids everywhere.
All bungalows have air-conditioning, an over-bed fan, a private bathroom with hot water and toilet, a king size bed, a safe box, wardrobes, a private terrace with outside table and chairs, 2 free daily bottles of drinking water, a kettle with free coffee and tea, mosquito wipes and insect spray,... the list is quite long. And of course, free Wi-Fi connection in each room as well as inside the resort.
The Beach House and Family Bungalow also have a fridge that the others don't.
What I really like, it's the space around the pool and between each sunbed. With only 8 bungalows, the pool won't get crowded. On top of that, no old plastic garden furniture here, only good quality wooden sunbeds with large umbrellas and your own beach towels.
The amber sands beach is not very big but is extremely quiet and calm. Far away you can see the mainland and the cambodian mountains. Mornings are magic with the beautiful sunrises.
There are 2 kayaks, 4 bicycles and 2 Stand Up Paddle boards for the guests at no extra cost.
Thai massage or reflexology are available by appointment and can be performed in your room or in the garden near the beach. Another way to relax and empty your mind.
Breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner are available in their restaurant with a view on the sea. They are offering only fresh and good quality products.
I really recommend the restaurant, even if you don't stay in the resort, but in this case book your table in advance. Their Thai Chefs will surprise you with their Thai dishes and local cuisine but also with the Western dishes with salads, home-made pasta and burgers.
And if you want to change you always have the possibility to walk to the few surrounding resorts' restaurants or take a taxi, or a bike and go to Klong Son for example.
