“Fantastic Location & Views But Closes Early”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We had drinks there last thursday nite and the bar was eager to close early at about 11:40pm. I thought this is a 5 star resort where their bars dont close so early but I was dead wrong!!! The bar sort of "closed" at 11pm. Seems to me that their staff were more eager to go home than we were.

To the manager: this bar will not make money as long as the bar closes early.

“My favourite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

The most relaxing, tasteful and classiest genuine 5 star resort in Asia. A visit to the Sunset Bar is a must when you visit this city.

“good when you can get a sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

we stayed at the Tangung for 9 nights and could not get one night clear enough for a sunset, but it really was of little bother
the bar is still worth a visit for the venue itself

“Lovely place to unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Nice, but rather costly as it is located at a 5-Star resort. Located just by the sea and offers spectacular views at sunset. It is worth the $$$ paid for the drinks as the memories photographed are worth their weight in gold. A great place to chill.
