We heard a rumor that sunset did a great fish dinner, so we ordered one in the morning. We received a huge chunk of tuna cooked perfectly over an open flame so it was juicy and slightly smoked. I never knew tuna could taste so good. Highly recommend!

We wound up our 2 weeks trip in Flores with 4 nights here. Idyllic place, thatched bungalows open at the roof but with tiled floors only a few steps from the beach. Bathrooms are basic with bucket style showers, but it's comfy enough, mozzie nets over the beds and a nice porch. 250k in high season, but can be discounted... More

Stayed here for some relaxation during a backpacking trip round Flores. I stayed in one of the bungalows, it was cool and spacious and pretty. Basic but clean bathroom, cold water shower but it's so hot you don't want hot water. Friendly staff helped organise a hike up Mount Egon (tough but so worth it!) and to the local Arak... More

We arrived in a squashed Bemo about an hour from the airport to this little beach haven. Lovely simple bamboo huts about 8 metres from the beach with a lovely garden and beautiful view of the islands.... Bed was ok and had mossie net and there was enough water via shower/Mandi. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Food was tasty (the... More

The cottages are certainly simple, no frills. However, there's a clean bed, mosquito net, and running water (most of the time), which is enough for us. Plus, it's nestled right in the middle of a sweet jungle, beach setting. It's perfect for taking a dip at anytime of the day without being bothered by onlookers. The best thing about Sunset... More

There are currently two Sunset Cottages 3km apart. The one closest to Maumere is shutting down, cause the lease is ending. But Henrick (the owner) opened his new place just a bit further down the road. Here you got wonderful new cottages made out of bamboo. There's a balcony with chairs and you're about 10 metres from the hammock and... More

Location: They've moved to a new location. The new place is Waiterang Beach (near Lena house 1). Do not get confused, because the old place still has the sign, after you encounter that first sign, go 3km further east and you will find the new place. *Pros: 5-10M from the beach, there's a nice colorful house reef, with clear water,...
