“Excellent place would recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We spent 3 lovely days here after travelling round Thailand for 6 weeks and this was one of the most relaxing and welcoming place so far. The owner and staff were faultless and really thoughtful. The accomodation was very clean with small touches we haven't seen in Thailand. It is still a quiet and unspoilt island which is very difficult to find. Not lots to do but have seen 3 foot lizards off the beach, monkeys, eagles and kingfishers and someone else saw dolphins. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stayed on Koh Libong after we visited Koh Lipe and Koh Bilon and had a very good time in Sunset Resort. We got our bungalow for a good price, 700 THB, Sea view, clean garden and friendly staff. Even when we rent a boat with them to see the dugongs, sea cows, we have been lucky and spent a great half day on the sea. The bungalows are basic but comfortable with shelfes and a bathroom with cold shower. The restaurant offers yummy meals and the owner will be always there for you with helpful tips or just for an interesting conversation. Loved it here! Thank you again and chock dee khrap :-)

We chose to go to Koh Libong as we were looking for somewhere peaceful to relax and get some sun at the start of our trip and after a long british winter - and we couldn't have found a more perfect place. I had emailed Tookie, the friendly and welcoming owner, in advance asking for a quiet room and she recommended one of their family bungalows. It was spacious and well equipped with a big verandah which opened out directly onto the (usually deserted) beach and offered fantastic sunset views every evening, There was hot water and fans but no air-con, although it really wasn't needed as even though it was the hot season there was cool sea breeze in the bungalow and in the well designed restaurant.

We were there at the end of the season so there were only a few other guests, but even at the busiest time there must be plenty of space for everyone on the beach. We spent our days reading, swimming in the clear waters, eating, watching the local fishermen bringing their catches onto the beach, or taking walks along the coast through the rubber plantations. After dinner every night we sat out there watching the stars and the fireflies and enjoying the away from it all feel.

Koh Libong is an island which feels like a living place rather than just a tourist trap: it is not picture postcard beautiful like some of the neighbouring islands, but is still lovely and the people are friendly and welcoming.It is also suprisingly easy to get to: we took a mini van from Trang airport to Had Yao and then got straight on a longtail ferry which only took 20 minutes to reach the island. The resort then provided a free transfer for us across the island which takes another 20 minutes: we took the early flight from Bangkok to Trang and were there in plenty of time for lunch.

Libong Sunset Resort is only in its second season, but deserves to become a great success. The restaurant serves delicious, reasonably priced food (don't leave without trying the Penang curry!) including lots of locally caught fish and seafood and some of the best shakes I have ever had.The staff are welcoming, helpful, speak good English and nothing was too much trouble (thanks, Noi).There are lots of hammocks and deck chairs to lounge in. Oh, and the beer was cold too! If you are looking for five star luxury with wild nightlife then Sunset Resort, and indeed Koh Libong, is probably not for you; but if you want to escape the crowds and spend time in a truly relaxing and authentic environment I can't think of a better place.

Room Tip: We chose a family room which was right on the beach with amazing views and furthest away from the re...
