'm a travel photographer for a well known guide book and was looking for somewhere nice to stay whilst I caught up on some work. After scanning tripadvisor I found this little gem which, by the photos, looked really nice. However the photos could never do this place justice!

I stayed at the resort for just over 3 months so got to know the resort and the island really well. I really couldn't have asked for any more! It's surrounded by some of the best beaches and viewpoints on the island and there's a handy amount of restaurants and shops nearby; a couple at the bottom of the hill and others a 2 minute biking distance it's a perfect spot to relax in perfect for all types of traveller ... during my stay I saw lots of people come through the door (families, couples or groups) and all leave with the same viewpoint - completely blown away!

The resorts up on the west coast hills of Phangan in the most beautiful setting so the view is this places selling point. If you're on foot the road - although not very long is a bit of a steep climb a small price to pay really! As I got to know the island well I soon found out that I was lucky enough to have picked a place with easily the best view on the island - absolutely breathtaking! I really do recommend getting a room with an ocean view! It's worth having just so you can wake up every morning with the doors wide open looking out to Ang Thong National Marine Park.
But if you can only fit the superior rooms (without a view but kitted out just as well) or if all the ocean view rooms are taken you can always catch the sunset view from the Lounge or from the pool.

As I was long term stay I chose to look around all the rooms to decide which one I'd prefer. All the rooms follow the same theme but have their own unique touches. Clean, spacious and modern - and for the price you pay.. well I first thought there was a catch.. there wasn't.

Service is second to none and although a fairly new resort on the island Adam (the manager) and the rest of the team are right on point. Immensely helpful and knowledgable about the area but at the same time very down to earth.

I've seen reviews on tripadvisor before which haven't matched to what I saw with my own eyes but in this case.. it's spot on.

And if you're on the island for full moon/half moon parties (half moons are equally as good as the full moon I should add!) then book your room early as this place will get fully booked. To get to the party action down in Haad Rin it's about a 20-30min taxi ride which you can book at the resort or for less people, head 1 min down the hill and wait for a passing taxi that normally is taking people down.. so therefore cheaper. It's Thailand so taxis are never exactly expensive anyway!

All in all, this has to be one of the best.. if not the best place I've stayed at - and I've stayed in quite a few places.


Oh, the infinity pool! ...just wait and see!


I kind of feel I've over sold this place now! But trust me, go and see for yourself!

Room Tip: Definitely recommend getting an ocean view room. I personally think D4 is the nicest double room wit...

Thanks to Andre, Angela and the staff for making our stay here so comforable. Knothing was to much trouble. We were upgraded to a large room with a sea and pool view. Wow it was amazing. The photos do not do the view justice. Would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: A room with a sea view.

Sunset hill was the most amazing experience of Thailand. Thanks to Andre and Ang, the service was 100%, the view and rooms were immaculate. Not a bad word to say.

This Hotel was one of the best hotels we have been to. A great view, a short distance to a really nice beach and very friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay there very much.

Room Tip: I think every room is very very good. If you can afford it, book one with oceanview!

Not all of my review will rhyme.... I promise, and whats more, if im honest, Sun Set Hill has more than just promise, it has perfect views, a cocktail list to abuse, and sunsets to rival any offered on a cruise.

Enough messing around.

I visited Koh Phangan as my friend is staying on the island for 3 months, so I decided to fly out and visit him and experience Thailand and all it has to offer. As a testament to the place, for the duration of my friends 3 month working holiday, he has choosen to stay at Sunset Hill Resort. Think that says its all!!!!

On arrival, I was over the (full) moon when I was presented with this delight of a resort, knowing that I would spend 10 days in fantastic accommodation, on an amazing island.

In a nutshell......Room - top draw, Service and hospitality - 10/10, Location and setting - unbeatable.

I will be returning.

The Full Moon party is a must - massive Tear Up!

I highly reccommend this resort, and I thank Ad and the team for going out of their way to make my stay enjoyable.
