“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I stayed at this resort in Feb 2010, even though it wasnt completely finished, it was great value for money and an absloutely lovely. there was a group of us so we rented the penthouse apartment - LOVED IT! Hottub on our roof, great views, hammocks, spacious apartment with three rooms. Couldnt fault it. The only downside, or should I say up is the huge hill inot the hotel. However Taxis are very very cheap and we use dthem very regularly as the hotel wasnt really within our walking distance to where we wanted to be!

Pool was clean and had stunning views. It was very quiet and relaxing. Would love to go back!

Room Tip: Definitely reccomend the Penthouse apartment!!

I would like to thank Camila, Mickey and the rest of the staff for there excellent hospitality. Not to mention that the location makes you feel like your in top of the world with there breathtaking views which makes it live up to there name "Sunset Hill". The compound literally sits on a hill that displays incredible sunsets each and everyday, and not to mention all the rooms are furnished excellently. A real must to experience if your planning a trip to Koh Phangan.

Sunset Hill is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. The staff is very easy going, helpful, enthusiastic and seem to enjoy working there, which contributes to a nice and friendly atmosphere. We greatly enjoyed using the infinity pool - open day and night, reading books on our huge balcony and eating in the friendly and informal restaurant.

The location is fantastic, elevated on a hill overlooking the sea (but make sure to get one of the rooms with sea view, ours was R05, a huge two-bedroom apartment with stunning 180 degrees sea view. The view in other rooms is partly obscured by electric masts).

Room Tip: The views of the rooms in the Rose building facing the sea have the best view by far.

I have visited this property since September and plan to share my great experiences but have no time to do yet. The hotel is on the top hill. Reception area & restaurant place in the area that you can enjoy the beautiful view during having welcome drink from Camila (The best girl who will do everything for you during you saty). Restaurant is simple and not 5 stars but we did not expect from this kind of property. Only one restaurant that they have.The room is wonderful with full sea view, it is " Wow " . Amenities & room set up are better than I expect compare to the rate that they charged. Garden in green and really nature touch. If they put more attention and hire better landscape people this hotel will be on the top of nuture and greenary atmosphere. Swimming pool is amazing located. Best pool view in the island. They have a small and simple spa service. it is good enough becuase they just start to provide this service. The owner Marcel & Yola are always in the property to welcome and provide support. They both are very polite, sincere and service mind. The driver is polite and give warm welcome when they pick up us from the pier by hotel pick up car.
Be careful if you ask mortocycle man to send you to the hotel you might be lost. The motorcycle pretend that they know the place but actaully they just want to take you and send to the wrong hotel. Reccomend to get Tuk Tuk if you don't want hotel to pick you up. It is very comfortable anyway. You can hire scooter during stay but be careful with driving caus of the hotel is up to the hill. During Full Party period you need to book hotel in advance, if not you will get trouble with the room available.
They have a great empty roof top that plan to be a top roof restaurant. I can say now that this will be the best view restaurant in the island. I am waiting to be back when the project are completed.

What I can summarize now is, the Sunset Hill is a great future hotel. It locate in one of the best place in Koh Pangan. In 1-2 years, this place will be very popular and of course that time the price will be big different. Please go now if you want to have a great experience before they upgrade thier hotel and price.
Thank you Sunset Hill Team to make my time happy. I will be back here when I have a chance to visit Koh Pangan

The hotel is located in a beautiful place with a great ocean view.
The reception person Kamilla was the greatest among all hotel workers we met in Thailand. She was very friendly and helpful. There is a good restaurant in the hotel. Try glass noodle soup :)

The location is not the best one, it takes 5-10 minutes to walk to the main road but it is up and down the hill.

We had a great stay at this resort.
The big appartment with jacuzzi on the roof was perfect. The rooms als clean, the cleaningladies are very sweet.
We hired scooters ( you will need this) for 4 days. The views are amazing. The people are also great. What ever you ask, they will check it out for you.
The food is expensive but very good. Expecially the Padthai chicken! But if you walk down 5 minutes you will find other restaurants also.
We loved it here.

Room Tip: Choose the big appartment with jacuzzi on the roof! Its amazing.

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

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea view.... most of them are
