What can I say other than fantastic. If you want a nice apartment at a very good rate with views to die for then look no further. What a view to wake up to or sit on the balcony and enjoy.
We hired a scooter from reception and within 5 minutes it was there. You will need the scooter to get to beaches and to save the legs when walking back up the hill as others have mentioned. My partner was worried about being on the back of the bike but after 2 minutes she was reassured. The road (only really one road), was practically empty and we never rode over 30 mph....no need.
The beauty of the scooter means you can visit all the local beaches at your leisure. We went to all of them within 10 kilometres (to the north). The best we thought was salad beach. Part of us thought how nice it would be to have had accomodation right on the beach, which we have before but were so glad that we chose sunset hill for the views, service and quality of room.
If the island was more developed these apartments would cost double easily.
It was a little quiet when we were there (9th sept for a week) so we didnt eat in the apartment but went to all four restaurants at the bottom of the hill. All served up delicious thai food at very low prices.
We was warned that the weather may be poor at this time of year and half the days were cloudy but this was actualy nice as you could lay on the beach all day and not feel uncomfortably hot.
great staff, very friendly and helpful......perfect choice and if back in phangan its a no brainer that this will be used again
