“Loved this place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This was one of 5 resorts that we stayed in whilst in Thailand and was my favourite. The setting is excellent with a spectacular pool that offers some of the best sunset viewing around. The staff are helpful and friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. If you want to relax and get away from the madness of Haad Rin...this is the answer.

Second stay on koh phangan and third hotel there. Without a doubt the best of the bunch. This hotel had great food at very fair prices, a location right on the beach, amazing service from all the staff and very comfortable rooms (as well as a selection of free dvds and books). Staff happily assisted our group with preparation for the full moon party (including assisting with body painting and transport). Has a pretty average fitness centre. But this isn't even an amenity we were aware of and, in realit, should be considered a bonus!

Room Tip: Some rooms have bathrooms which are somewhat outside. Might pay to avoid these as bugs can get in q...

We have stayed here 6 times and love it so much! Rooms are perfect with a nice private outdoor section (we usually book at B room). Pool is stunning and food is delicious! Staff are always friendly. If you are looking for rest and relaxation this is the place, 45 minutes from the craziness of Haad Rin (which is a good thing). There are a few cute restaurants nearby but I would recommend hiring a motorbike or car to get around.

I highly recommend Sunset Cove. We stayed in a pool-side bungalow--clean, cool, comfortable. Food on site was excellent; beach was beautiful; and the sunsets were beyond amazing! Great snorkeling out beyond the rocks, about 100 yards offshore. Easy walk to more food, massages, shopping. November is said to be the rainiest month, but don't be deterred--the rain blows in, then blows out leaving gorgeous sun. Management couldn't have been nicer. We travel a lot, and this was a high point.

Room Tip: Seaview Cottages are a real bargain.

Beautiful place to relax. Awesome kitchen, polite staff and not crowded at all! Plan was to stay 3 nights...after having a great first day we have booked 4 more nights. I would recommend Sea view bungalow as it offers great value.

Nice location, quiet, but not isolated. Rooms are nice, staff very friendly, meals are excellent. Nice sunset views, lovely pool, Nice sunbeds. Would defenitly recommend this place! There are lots of places nearby for a drink or meal, at the beach. Shops (7/11) is also close. No tv, but dvd's, really nice. Wifi sometimes is not to good in the room.

After 14 days backpacking from north to south Thailand we were looking for a place to chill and relax a few days. Sunset Cove resort was the perfect place,
it has a great atmosphere, the view, beach and pool are awesome, the food is really nice, the bungalows fit the price. We were thinking abou staying for two nights but the Cove magic made it a easy decision and we stayed one more night.
We had great time at Cove Resort!!
P.S. Rent a motorbike, best way to travel around Koh Phagnan.
