This is a hard review as we have mixed feelings. The resort was very relaxing overlooking the lagoon. It had a lovely feel and good atmosphere. However the resort is a little tired particularly around the pool area and even though buses were easy to catch from the front (maximum wait was 4 minutes) it was a little bothersome travelling...

This was our first time in Vanuatu, a place we kept promising ourselves to visit and we were not disappointed. We chose Sunset Bungalows after a lot of research on TripAdvisor and were extremely glad we did. Audrey, Greg and the Team couldn't have made us feel more welcome and comfortable. The location is just far enough out of town... More

Can recommend for a relaxing break out of the bustle of Port Vila. The whole of the staff including managers were knowledgable, helpful and friendly at all times. We were assisted greatly to celebrate our second honeymoon. All accommodation is on the lagoon with the water washing under your balcony in the comfortable Bungalows. Seating in the quality restaurant is... More

The recent "Awesome in every way" review says it all for us, except we must do John's authentic tour next time. We stayed in one of the bungalows for a week from mid-January and from the moment we got on the plane at Sydney to when we returned a week later we experienced the beautifully genuine, welcoming friendliness that is...

Resort staff were very helpful attending to rooms, maintaining the resort, conjuring cocktails and booking tours. The place is beautiful, in such a great spot right on the lagoon. Facilities were fantastic as was the restaurant. Loved it!

We stayed in the honeymoon bungalow for a week from 29 December and although we weren't on our honeymoon we wanted the extra luxury this bungalow provided. Everything good that everyone says about sunset bungalows and the managers and staff is true. The advice, the service, the food and the cocktails were superb. This was our first time in Vanuatu...

We loved it so much we decided to try it again. we booked two rooms as my daughter came with us and our rooms were next door to each other. Both large rooms pleasing and comfortable. I did have an issue with the pillows which were too... More

Early December we visited Sunset Bungalows for the 3rd time, and we have back at work for a few weeks now and realised that without our fabulous favourite holiday destination booked in again, then 2015 was going to be a VERY long year...So yes we have booked again, and yep it brings instant happiness!!

Location is the thing here. Sunset Bungalows are a few km out of town and there is nothing within walking distance. That said, local shared buses in Vila are extremely easy to use, and cheap (under $2 per trip to town) and we never waited more than 30 seconds for one to come along. Travelling with the locals on these... More
