We recently stayed at Sunset Palms resort and we found it to be a stunning resort. Gili T is a beautiful island and the Palm Resorts are a wonderful addition that have been built respecting their surroundings but still to a very high spec. The rooms are tasteful, spacious and calming and to have our own private pool was the icing on the cake.
The villas are peaceful whether day or night and a perfect place to go if you just want to shut your self away from the world. Although, if you do want to drag yourself away from your secluded private pool (not as easy as your would think!!), the resort has push bikes that you can use to explore the island.
We found the staff to be caring and attentive, without being intrusive. The resort restaurant served up some incredible meals and we ate there on a number of occasions (a number of times we planned to go out for meals but then kept getting tempted by the dishes on offer!!)
I was seriously impressed with these villas and the next time we are in Bali, we will definitely be making the short crossing to stay at the Sunset Palms again!

The Villas are absolutely gorgeous! Loved the pool - used it everyday. Very private accommodation on the peaceful side of the island. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Staff were amazing and friendly. Would highly recommend it! We hope to return someday. Thanks again Sue.

Sunset Palms resort is truly unique. Its set in a quiet Coconut garden only 1 minute walk of the ocean. It is a place for all those who want to escape the Gili T. Center hustle and bustle. I immediately felt at home in their beautiful villas. Will surely come back next year! Thanks a lot!

Room Tip: All Villas are the same, so you can't go wrong :)

Words and pictures dont to this place justice. It is beautiful!!
Located on the quieter west side of the island only 2min walk to the beach with amazing sunsets!
Fantastic attention to detail and finished to a high standard.
The gardens were well maintained, staff were fantastic and the food in the resturant was of a very high standard.
We would recommend this resort to anyone looking for something special.

Beautiful tropical island resort, set among palm trees with your own private pool.
Friendly staff and manager Lalu.
Greeted with cold refreshing drinks on arrival.
Very quiet relaxing location but only few minutes walk to sunset coast where you can watch the sun set over Mt Agung while sipping cocktails.
Had the best nasi goreng for dinner at the lovely resort restaurant.
Would definitely stay here again.

From the moment the cidomo started up the long brickpaved path we knew this resort was going to be something special. We were greeted by the hotels manager Lalu with an amazing smile and beautiful cold welcome drinks and cold towels, just what we needed after hours of travel.

We were escorted to our rooms, along white beach sand footpaths with perfectly manicured gardens. We stayed in the 2 bedroom villas, the bamboo gates open and there it is , our own little yard with our own private pool, surrounded by whitewashed decking and coconut trees. The beautiful crisp clean water looked so inviting.

The rooms have been finished beautifully with king sized beds with mosquito nets. There is an outside shower/bathroom which is finished nicely.

The alfresco area is a good size and has daybeds and 2 lounge bags they you can lay back on and catch the sun and look up into the coconut trees and come to the realisation that you are in heaven.

The villa comes with mini bar stocked with plenty of refreshments, cool air conditioning and TV with 16 channels on it.

The restaurant delivers great food and would highly recommend the Nasi Goreng and Chicken Curry. All the staff are very friendly always accommodating when you need something.

Situated on the west side of the island you are only a short walk from the beach and restaurants to watch the sunset over Mt Agung.

I would definitely recommend this place to people travelling to Gili T looking for a nice relaxing and laid back holiday.

Lalu and the staff should be congratulated on there superb service they provide to there guests.
