“Best place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Me and my new husband were on our honeymoon and this hotel was perfect! All the hotel staff really helped us and provided the best service. The food was lovely and the views were out of this world. This hotel was one of my favourites that we stayed in! Thank you so much!

to stay in Sunset Hill. The view is stunning and it is worth walking everyday high up the hill to see it in the morning. There is nice beach down but in June it is shallow, so we rent a motorbike and went to Thong Nai Pan Yai. The service is more than helpful and nice! Cons for me: I'm a smoker and I wasn't allowed to smoke in the room.

Hi Grzesio,

Thanks for the nice review it I was our great pleasure to have you stay in our resort!
Good news: smoking is actually a bad habit so you'll thank us later haha. No seriously there is plenty of space on the large balcony or garden or rooftop or at the pool etc to smoke its only not allowed to smoke in the room itself.
Hope you had a great remainder of your holiday and we are looking forward to see you back!
Warm regards from the Sunset Hill Team

Stayed here for two nights for the Full Moon Party. Was a little sceptical about the distance from Haad Rin where the party takes place, but the girls at the hotel arrange a shared taxi to Haad Rin for the guests which is very cheap, and you can always arrange to return with the guests to save money. My favorite part of the hotel is the infinity pool. I arrived very very jet lagged, and ended up waking up at about 5 in the morning. I had a walk down to the pool and managed to watch the sunrise over the infinity pool while everybody else was asleep, it was the definition of paradise. I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for couples. The location is good, there isn't a whole lot of things to do in the area, so I'd suggest either hiring a scooter or staying within the hotel and relaxing. There is also a steep hill up to the hotel, but the view at the top makes it worth it all. The girls at the hotel are more than happy to help with any question or queries you have, and the breakfast/bar area hosts some amazing views.

We stayed here for 4 nights. From the first moment the staff here were amazing. It was low season so we got a good deal. The hotel has the most amazing views. Up there with the top hotels we ever stayed in for views. Room was nice and big with good tv and dvd player. Pool is nice. Might be busy in high season as it is nit the biggest pool.
Only downsides was the restaurant. It was low season si the restaurant was not open every night as chef was off. The nearest other restaurant was 5 mins away at the end of a big hill. It is a hard walk. I woudl recommend hiring a scooter if u stay here as there is not many shops or restaurants close by. Saying that we managed without one. Would certainly recommend this hotel without hesitation.

I had been to Koh Pha Ngan on many occasions before but had never had the opportunity to check out this part of the island. My friends and I (6 of us in total) wanted to attend the full moon party but wanted or accommodation to be far more secluded than the madness of Haad Rin. Sunset Hill was absolutely brilliant. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the wonderful staff, in particular Anna made it feel like home from home :) Prior to our arrival, sylvester had been really helpful in advising us via e-mail also. Our rooftop penthouse was spacious and luxurious. The reception and eating area faces the most stunning view. The food was beautiful and we had wifi to be able to communicate with home (Ireland). The infinity pool was simply paradise, we spent many morning and evenings there relaxing before and after activities. The staff aided us and advised us regarding activities and organised pick-ups. Taxi's into town were prompt and allowed us time for a drink whilst taking in the spectacular sunset from the balcony.
I would recommend Sunset Hill to anyone travelling to Koh Pha Ngan. Thoroughly enjoyed stay and and would love to go back again. You experience the bast of both worlds of Koh Pha Ngan here - the craziness of the night life and the rural bliss of Thailand.

Booked this as it was a third of it's advertised rate and it was full moon so price looked very good. This part of the island is my favourite part as its more relaxed and has far better beaches.

Hotel is located just a short climb from the coast road with stunning views and good beaches. The staff were very attentive and very helpful. The views from the superior rooms and infinity pool are great. What made me surprised was the number of rules displayed in each room, this isn't a young backpacker hotel so most people who stay here are responsible and do not need to be given a book of rules. Unfortunately the Internet isn't that good in the rooms probably the slowest i have encountered in 2 yrs in Thailand, most of the time it could not be used which was disappointing, when it did work it was very slow, this isn't due to the location of the hotel as the restaurant at the bottom of the road had excellent wifi day and night so this needs improvement. Reception wifi was ok so room wifi needs improvement as it's pointless having it.
Overall i was very satisfied with my stay but disappointed with wifi in rooms.

Dear Steve,

Thank you very much for your nice review, fairly describing our resort and informing the readers why they should surely come and experience this beautiful part of the island!

Sorry to hear about your difficulties connecting to our free WIFI in the rooms. The reason for this is that during Full Moon Parties our resort is usually fully booked and most people nowadays use multiple devices (phone, ipad, laptop) which means their are many connections to our routers and internet lines at the same time, which sometimes causes them to be overloaded and not allow any more connections. We acknowledge this issue and therefore have upgraded our Wifi system and now installed an extra internet line and router for our guests, which solves the issue.

Regarding the information and rules booklet in the room, we understand this is clearly unnecessary for well behaving guests like yourselves and most of our guests are indeed very lovely and careful during their stay in our apartments, they can just ignore this booklet. However since we are located on Koh Phangan, which is famous as a party island and backpacker heaven, we have occasionally (more often during the Full Moon party period) guests who misbehave, brake things in the room, have all night loud parties or leave the Aircon on and all windows open when they are out. For these guest the rules book is unforuunately necessary. We sincerely hope it won't be necessary anymore in the near future.

Thanks again for your terrific review and we are looking forward to have you stay with us again and use our upgraded fast Wifi!
Best regards,
The Sunset Hill Team
Sylvester
