I hear that the restaurants at Christmas Island do not operate for a long duration so I may need to do some cooking (simple stuff like instant noodles). May I know what cookware does the Sunset have ?
All rooms have a microwave, kettle, toaster, bar fridge. Cutlery & crockery for two. There is also a barbecue by the pool.
