We needed a place to stay for one night on Ko Chang prior to taking the boat to Ko Wai. We got off the ferry and having looked at the map decided to just walk to Amber Sands and hope they had a room. The resort is beautiful and very well cared for. The garden is full of palms and... More

Thank you for your very thorough and informative review magicfish79. We have many guests who extend their stay once they get here which is always pleasing for us as hosts because it usually means we're doing something right. We're glad that you enjoyed your "treat". Sorry about the higher room prices than in Lonely Planet. It's a wonderful guide that... More

We (a young couple) stayed at Amber Sands for 8 nights and would have loved to stay for weeks! We were picked up at the ferry terminal and directly felt relaxed after only 5 minutes in our lovely bungalow. The rooms are spacious and lovely decorated. The beds are amazing as well, especially for the standards in Thailand. The location... More

Thank you so much sfelgner for your kind review. It's interesting that you comment on our beds because many of our guests tell us how comfortable they are. We've also found some really hard beds on our own travels around Thailand and that can really spoil one's stay. The thing is how does one know when you book? Unless one... More

I just spent 10 days together with my wife and 2 sons (aged 9 months and 5 years) and we had the best time at Amber sands, it was just such a pleasent surprise to us, a true hidden pearl. The resort is small, cosy and well kept and set by the edge of a secluded and private beach (no... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience of Amber Sands Honkenholm, we do appreciate your comments. We find that these reviews help others looking for accommodation on the island to choose Amber Sands for the right reasons, mostly because we're on the quiet side of the island, but yet not too far away.

I have spent the last 10 days with my future wife in Amber Sands Beach Resort in Koh Chang, Thailand and we don't want to leave....

Thank you for your kind words PoolRob. We are so pleased that you and your fiancee have enjoyed your holiday with us. We try to be different, and being small is probably one of our biggest strengths which enables us to offer a more personal service and experience. Best wishes for your future together.

We could not fault Julian and Cheryl for their superlative hospitality. The hotel was the highlight of our 8 hotel stay in Koh Chang. From the beautiful rooms to the relaxed ambiance of the hotel to the beautiful views at sunset to the excellent food it was a delightful stay.

Suddenly realised that I had not written a much deserved positive review for the lovely Amber Sands after we stayed there last November.

My husband and I stayed at Amber Sands for a lovely 5 days at the beginning of March 2014.
