“Comfortable, Affordable and met expectation.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Very nice place but probably suitable for family travels. Room was spacious, boutique style. The spa Breeze was an amazing experience at Amari Koh chang. A little too far from anywhere and hotel doesn't provide sightseeing so if you are up for activities... try elsewhere. If you would like to just chill out in the beach and enjoy the facilities, food in house.. it's the right place. Restaurant was nice and met my expectations although front desk efficiency was 4 out of 10 if I have to score.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for 7 nights and loved every minute of it. Very gay friendly, although the entire country is gay friendly. Beautiful rooms, great views, amazing service!!! We were also upgraded a room free of charge, I was given a birthday cake for breakfast and they accommodated for a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me ;)
Beach or pool, you choose! Both have everything set up for a comfortable and relaxing stay.
Also visited they SPA center for a 3 hour treatment, priceless!!!
Thank you to all of the staff for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, sea view offers sunset and the mountain view is also very good and very co...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

We arrived at the Amari after 3 days in busy and noisy Bangkok and immediately loved the peaceful and quiet atmosphere of the Amari. Beautiful lighting in the evening, lovely beach and wonderful large pool. The rooms were clean and spacious and we especially enjoyed the option of a quiet ceiling fan rather than having to use the air-conditioning all night (which is available in the room).
The hotel does not offer a pick up service to and from the airport, but it is no trouble at all to arrange your return ticket at the airport (just don't forget to budget in additional 800 Baht). You are taken in an air conditioned mini bus to the front door.
Be mindful when you travel with young children, some main walkways are surrounded by water and have no safety rails. There is a lovely children's pool area which looked great fun for the entire family.
The hotel also offers romantic candlelight dinners for 2 at the beach at special request.
Breakfast offered great buffet choices for all ages and nationalities.
If you don't wish to eat at the hotel, there are plenty of restaurant choices nearby.
I certainly would stay there again.

We booked the hotel from hotel.com because ranking in trip advisor was very good.
But disappointed!
Amenities in the room is not good especially bed & pillow very low grade!
Breakfast like rural 3 star hotel. No mini bar available only on request.
Air conditioner and TV very old. Room not clean.
Swimming pool was dirty and limit only one pool towel per person!
Car park far from the hotel and not pick up service event raining.

Dear Chokdeebangkok, thank you very much for taking the time to post once more your experience, after your comment has on first stage been taken out from TripAdvisor already.

At Amari, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore any feedback is very important to us.

Please rest assured that we have deeply checked your feedback together with the team, because it was for us very important to address your concerns.
As for example our car park is directly on hotel side and our hotel rooms are newly set up with 40 inch flat screen TV’s - as well our pool is at any time well maintained, we were very surprised about this feedback but as well anxious to improve further.

Thank you again for sharing your experience.

I had looked forward to visiting the Amari for many years and finally went there in September/October and generally liked the place. Our room was a grand deluxe ocean facing suite which as you could imagine, had nice ocean views over the pool. The room needed upgrading but the hotel is in the process of doing this and the rooms we saw that were refurbished were nice.
The hotel is right on the beach and has a great pool and the beach is close by. I have written a review about the hotel restaurants which were not great, the one nearest the pool is much better.
There were problems with the hotel which I would consider to be large if I was there at peak time. Firsly, you can hear noise from the other rooms, I am not too sure what you can do about this except get a room on the top floor. Secondly, the restaurant used for breakfast is really small and the lay out does not serve well with guests going into a room to get their food and then having to exit by one door. I just think it would be a nightmare in the high season.
Overall i liked the hotel but I do not think I would rush back. Mind you we had (free of charge) daily massages and spa treatments and the ladies who work there make up for any short coming the hotel may have.
We will see what it is like after all the upgrades.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor to escape your neighbours.

Dear Stephentaynton,

thank you very much for taking the time posting your comment following your recent stay at Amari Emerald Cove Koh Chang.

It was indeed a pleasure to learn that you have enjoyed your stay with us, besides some highlighted guessing in your posting about the peak and high season.

As we never heard so far about this, please let me clarify as well from our side that actually our air conditioned breakfast area (buffet) has been appreciated (since the opening of the property nearly 10 years ago)
from our guest and we have as well received high appreciation on our oversized public- and restaurant areas, which have been built to serve and to host our guest based
on a 100% occupancy of 165 guest rooms at any time.

At Amari, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us.
Thank you again for sharing your experience and please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address
any problem and comment - to prevent future occurrence.

Ideally located at the beach. Great atmosphere in the evening hours, great lighting. Super Pool. nice staff.
Very happy once again!!!
The breakfast was very versatile and it can be taken both internally and externally.
The spa area is great, if a little expensive compared to the many other massage shops in the area.

Room Tip: View of the pool or sea is great
