The Emerald Cove Koh Chang

Reviewed 2 September 2014

After touring Thailand and Laos over 3 weeks the island of Ko Chang was just what we needed. It was close enough from Bangkok, approx 4-5 hour drive, but far removed from the hustle. The Amari is a fabulous hotel and based on what I could see probably the best on the island. We stayed one night at KC's and was not that impressed. The ocean and beach at Amari are fantastic. Just the right amount of surf to be fun. Good rooms, great breakfast, great staff. Outside of the hotel we had a great night at Oodies restaurant in White Sands. The music was great with 2 excellent guitarists. I believe one was the owner and the other a Thai guy. I'm not normally one for live music in a small bar/restaurant but these guys were fantastic players playing blues/Steve Ray Vaughan. Due to my normal dislike of live music in these locations it is a high compliment. Food was ok but it was the atmosphere that makes it.

We stayed 10 nights in Amari in February 2014.We had an ocean view room on the third floor.The view was very good.The room was spacious but the furniture was a bit dated.
Breakfast was ok,nothing special but adequate.
Beach and pool area was clean and more than enough sun beds,no need to reserve them.
The staff were polite and all in all still the best hotel on Kohchang.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms on the third floor are the best.

Either a Mountain View or ocean view room you will not be disappointed. This is the perfect family holiday hotel.

Breakfast has everything the entire family can enjoy. If you have Thai folk, they have a good variety, or if all European, excellent selection.

Locally I suggest to eat at the Thai restaurant on the left side overlooking the ocean. Walk down to the beach from the garden area, look left and you will see the restaurant on the water.

It was suggested to ONLY use centerpoint ferry, don't waste your time if driving from Bkk, and take the first ferry, closer and quicker on the return journey.

That's it. If you want additional info you can email me direct.

We had a very welcoming, relaxing time here after a hectic 2 week holiday! Loved the room & balcony, spotlessly clean & the most comfortable beds! Having AC & a ceiling fan was appreciated in the rather humid temperatures. Also a very good wifi connection throughout the hotel.
I cannot praise the staff enough for their service, attitude, politeness & general helpfulness, everyone we dealt with was superb. Absolutely loved the in house band, what a repertoire & so sweet & professional.
The buffet breakfast was tasty, plentiful & varied, there is also a cooking station where they make lovely omelettes to your requirements. We dined in both restaurants both I highly recommend although the staff seemed confused as to which was open & what menu was available???
This was our most expensive hotel throughout our Thailand experience but it did not disappoint, loved having a pool but having direct access to the beach & sea, a stunning location & if you do not have a car there are bhat buses at the end of the lane, I will also highly recommend the launderette at the end of the lane. Awesome photo ops if you are a keen photographer!

We just got back from our honeymoon in Koh Chang. What an amazing time at this resort. Really professional staff, they take care to the last little detail in everything. Incredible atmosphere at the pool area. You got the pool and just aside the ocean. Really good time and totally recommended.

We stayed for a week for my cousins wedding and had the greatest time. The staff, led by the great Peter Dietze, were so friendly and so helpful. The resort was immaculate and I would recommend this resort to anyone. I look forward to the next time I go back.

We spent a week at this hotel. My son has recently got married and when the hotel heard about this, they upgraded his room & made a cake. Pool is fabulous -staff extremely helpful - beautiful beach area, large spacious rooms and bathrooms - everything very accessible too. Restaurant offers an extremely good breakfast - lots of very near restaurants and bars to wander to. Easy to get taxis to anywhere on the island. Highly recommended.
