We went there last August and don't wanna go home.... :D haha...
We arrived at Sunset Hill pretty late at around 8 pm, because we spent too much time in the zoo before we go to Ubud. Luckily we're smart enough to rent a car with a driver to bring us there. Pretty difficult to find, but Lanny (The owner) has been really helpfull giving us directions to get there from central of Ubud by phone and texts. She made sure that we get there and have hes staffs ready to greet us once we arrived.
Some of the reviews stated that the "way" to this place is dark and it's true. But believe me, once you're there, you don't wanna go out! especially if you go there with your loved ones. This place is PERFECT for couples who are looking for intimate - romantic escape. Away from routines, work, internet, everybody! just the TWO of YOU!
And so I guessed if you want to spend quality time with your spouse or partner, you won't mind to drop everything and just keep your self busy with him or her.
We stayed 3 nights in Maharani Suite, and it's just AWESOME!
Activities that we've done are waking up VERY late, have a VERY late breakfast and enjoy the yummy indonesian instant noodle (indomie) which we brought there our self, NOT because they don't provide breakfast, but we just simply like the instant noodle! but yet they still serve us yummy banana pancakes and fresh cut fruit, with coffee or tea.
and Lani the owner is very friendly and helpful with everything that makes us feel like home!
The room is clean, and the staff will clean up after you everyday. They also have good selections of DVDs if you just want to chill out in the room after swimming at their infinity pool that facing the forest... :D
Have an awesome open shower and toilet and even a bath tub and a walk-in closet!
The bed is very comfortable with big pillows and it's just cozy!
They have this private sitting area that makes you even closer to the nature, but too bad when we want to eat our breakfast there on morning, it was raining! But we will try to do it again when we come back to Sunset Hill!
There are some minor things that will somehow give you a "shock", as I remember there were 2 door handles that need to be fixed. But it's just a really small things that you'll be able to oversee it if only you realize how great the place is and you don't really need to open those doors actually.. :p and on our first night the water was off in the middle of the night, but once i talked about it with Lanny, we never have that problem ever since. We don't have any problem with the payment, since I've been emailing Lanny to do the booking in advance, we worked it out by transferring the money for the payment so we need not bring lots of cash which is very convenient.
Lanny (the owner) suggested us to walk down to the Central of Ubud (it was about 1.5 km walking) and it's just great! We walked in nature, up and down the hill, very beautiful view (just exactly as she said) and once we get to the Central of Ubud, we reward our self with a glass of beer and yummy SUCKLING PIG RICE at WARUNG IBU OKA which become my hubby's favorite food in BALI.
Renting a motorbike is a prefect idea if you stay in sunset hill, not just it will make you easy to move around Ubud, but it's such a remarkable experience to ride a motorbike close to padi fields which we did on our 3rd day in Ubud. And Sunset hill provide a parking space if you bring any car or motorbike.
In conclusion, our stay in Sunset Hill is PUURFECT ! We enjoyed every second of it and can't wait to come back! We're very satisfied with the services and friendliness and to top it up, we feel very lucky to know Christian and Lanny and thankful for their kindness & great hospitality for welcoming us to their home! Hope to see you guys again soon! :)
