The problem with booking in advance for a place like KPG is that the reality usually doesn't match the photos. Unless you know in advance where to stay, then you take your chance. But with Sunset Hill there is no such problem. There is no better place to arrive after a long journey to KPG than Sunset Hill. It has the wow factor, and you will have no better memory than your first glimpse of the stunning views from this hilltop location, especially at sunset.
I have stayed here for 2 separate one month stays in 2010/11 and been a long term resident. The management are european and the quality and service are top notch. It is not close to the beach, but the idyllic pool, balconies and bar restaurant more than make up for this, and excursions to local beaches and sights are easily arranged. Longer term travellers like me appreciate things like good internet, flat screen TV, fridge and kitchenette, top notch aircon and quiet ceiling fans. Hardly any insect problems at all. Only one thing to bear in mind is that it is at the top of a steep hill if you are intending to be on foot. But most people hire a scooter or jeep and taxis are easily arranged. Plenty to see and do and eat and drink in the surrounding area - including world class yoga schools. It occasionally gets busy on the full moon party weekend, but the party is on the other side of the island and Sunset Hill only attracts the discerning more mature party goers, not the rowdy teenage crowd. You will love this place.

Room Tip: If the best possible view is important to you, discuss this with the management - some are better th...

We stayed at Sunset Hill for five nights during our trip to Koh Phangang in December 2011 and were overall very satisfied with this place. The only real reason not to stay here would be the distance to Thong Sala (20 min) and Haad Rin (40 min), so if you're on Koh Phangan for the Party, this is not the most suitable place for you. For others who just want to relax for a few days and are not afraid of riding a scooter (150-200 Baht/day), there's hardly a better choice.

The resort consists of three main buildings, one of which also contains the lobby with restaurant and a chill out area featuring a large panorama window that is usually open and through which you have a great view of the sunset. A fourth building is currently being built but there was no construction work going on during our stay.
Around the buildings there is a nice garden with fruit that the cook uses for fresh meals and cocktails. An infinity pool is the topping of this nice package.

We were lucky to be upgraded to an executive rooms which was almost overly spacious with flat screen TV, home theatre system, extra couch and balcony. The room was very clean and even reasonably insulated so we did not need to run air condition all the time.

Staff was very friendly and always ready to help with any questions we had. We recommend Sunset Hill to anybody coming to Kho Phangan for a few relaxing days rather than the Full Moon Party and looking for a decent, medium-budget place outside the main tourist spots.

'm a travel photographer for a well known guide book and was looking for somewhere nice to stay whilst I caught up on some work. After scanning tripadvisor I found this little gem which, by the photos, looked really nice. However the photos could never do this place justice!

I stayed at the resort for just over 3 months so got to know the resort and the island really well. I really couldn't have asked for any more! It's surrounded by some of the best beaches and viewpoints on the island and there's a handy amount of restaurants and shops nearby; a couple at the bottom of the hill and others a 2 minute biking distance it's a perfect spot to relax in perfect for all types of traveller ... during my stay I saw lots of people come through the door (families, couples or groups) and all leave with the same viewpoint - completely blown away!

The resorts up on the west coast hills of Phangan in the most beautiful setting so the view is this places selling point. If you're on foot the road - although not very long is a bit of a steep climb a small price to pay really! As I got to know the island well I soon found out that I was lucky enough to have picked a place with easily the best view on the island - absolutely breathtaking! I really do recommend getting a room with an ocean view! It's worth having just so you can wake up every morning with the doors wide open looking out to Ang Thong National Marine Park.
But if you can only fit the superior rooms (without a view but kitted out just as well) or if all the ocean view rooms are taken you can always catch the sunset view from the Lounge or from the pool.

As I was long term stay I chose to look around all the rooms to decide which one I'd prefer. All the rooms follow the same theme but have their own unique touches. Clean, spacious and modern - and for the price you pay.. well I first thought there was a catch.. there wasn't.

Service is second to none and although a fairly new resort on the island Adam (the manager) and the rest of the team are right on point. Immensely helpful and knowledgable about the area but at the same time very down to earth.

I've seen reviews on tripadvisor before which haven't matched to what I saw with my own eyes but in this case.. it's spot on.

And if you're on the island for full moon/half moon parties (half moons are equally as good as the full moon I should add!) then book your room early as this place will get fully booked. To get to the party action down in Haad Rin it's about a 20-30min taxi ride which you can book at the resort or for less people, head 1 min down the hill and wait for a passing taxi that normally is taking people down.. so therefore cheaper. It's Thailand so taxis are never exactly expensive anyway!

All in all, this has to be one of the best.. if not the best place I've stayed at - and I've stayed in quite a few places.


Oh, the infinity pool! ...just wait and see!


I kind of feel I've over sold this place now! But trust me, go and see for yourself!

Room Tip: Definitely recommend getting an ocean view room. I personally think D4 is the nicest double room wit...

Thanks to Andre, Angela and the staff for making our stay here so comforable. Knothing was to much trouble. We were upgraded to a large room with a sea and pool view. Wow it was amazing. The photos do not do the view justice. Would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: A room with a sea view.
