The Sunset has the most amazing views of the ocean and, of course, the sunset. Definitely try to get a room on the top floor, so you can watch the sunset from your huge private balcony. Great service, and the pool is a really nice extra in the stifling heat and humidity of CI. The rooms were very well-priced compared... More

The room is a good size with all the essentials. There was wi-fi within the hotel's vicinity and the hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly. One of the best things about our room was the perfect view of the sunset each day. :)

The Sunset has wonderful unspoilt views over the ocean where you can watch the setting sun while enjoying a sundowner. It is near to all local amenities and the Golden Bosun tavern is just a stroll away for your evening meals and refreshments. The owner of The Sunset is very helpful and hospitable. I have visited here twice now and... More

The bedrooms are large and well equipped the bathrooms likewise. It is very clean and well managed, in the room there is a microwave, toaster and kettle. The views from the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean were stunning. The management is very helpful. The building used to be part of the Island’s hospital. The hotel has no restaurant but the...

For a hotel that is supposed to be "the best on Christmas Island", you'd honestly expect more. But it indeed is the best on the island when the other choices weren't great to begin with. At least the rooms and bathrooms were clean. The hotel management was kind enough too to provide a full set of cutleries and even a... More

Everything was excellent! View, location, big rooms, cleanliness. Next to hotel is a good place for dinning. And of course thanks for Angela we felt us as home. Also booking was easy. The answers to the e-mail came fast and with suggestions.

Sunset Lodge is a great place to stay on CI. This is my 7th run to CI in 3 years and you can not fault the service, the rooms or the view. As I write this I can hear the ocean pounding the shores - Mother Nature has reminded us of her power with squalls and high seas all day,... More

My original stay on Christmas Island was meant to be for only 2 nights, but due to flight issues I was found stranded on the Island for another 3 days and on Chinese New Year Weekend. Thanks to Angela this was not an issue, one phone call from the airport had me pick up and a room ready for me... More

The room I had was large and clean. The manager/owner was great, she knew all the tricks and tips about how to get... More

When you compare the remoteness of Christmas Island against other northern WA towns, the cost of food at Christmas Island and the demand on accommodation here, the price for ocean views is surprisingly low. This is my fourth trip back in 8 years. The accommodation has always been neat, clean and with all the amenities you need, its a place... More
