“Beautiful stay”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed for five nights. Staff and management service was excellent, friendly and welcoming. Rooms on the lagoon were very peaceful and relaxing. All facilities were well maintained and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Pool area was ok but not the main focus, still nice for a swim. Swimming in the lagoon was better. About 5 minutes from town, easy to get a ride in. Loved our stay!!

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

I stayed at Sunset Bungalows for 8 nights arriving quite late on Christmas Eve into the early hours of Christmas morning - such a smooth process - I was impressed being contacted by the managers Audrey and Greg advising me of the arrangements for my arrival and Christmas Day festivities. As a solo traveller with their expert guidance I was successfully able to see and do all I wanted. Their invaluable advice around the travel tips was awesome. I was even more impressed in that every morning at breakfast they would actually walk up to you and ask how your day before was and the plan for the day ahead and provide advice and guidance on places to eat, things to see and best way to get there. New Years Eve was awesome with even Audrey and Greg looking after their guests who attended the same location as them to celebrate by driving us all home. Audrey and Greg definitely go out of their way for their guests. The staff at the resort were also a pleasure - every day greeting you with a smile and going out of their way for you. The resort is in an awesome location on the lagoon - the room views are great! And the rooms are so big! And it's even better that there were no children - which created a pleasurable peaceful holiday ! Thank you for an awesome experience and I will definitely be planning to head back !

Cannot speak too highly of the hosts Greg & Audrey, the friendly and helpful staff and the accommodation over the lagoon. The restaurant was excellent and can accommodate special dietary requirements. We were looking forward to a holiday where we could relax totally and recoup for the new year - and we were not disappointed.

Greg & Audrey were on hand both at breakfast and dinner to ensure the resort was meeting our needs and to provide advice and assistance on planning activities, transport, and where to shop.

One of the best holidays we have had in a very long time. Ten out of Ten

Room Tip: The rooms over the lagoon are the best

From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Greg and Audrey took time each day to make sure we had everything we needed. The staff were always friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The restaurant meals were all superb, breakfast, lunch or dinner you know that you will get good quality food. Greg and Audrey were very helpful whenever you needed advice on tours and places to see. In our opinion this resort and restaurant is number 1.

My partner and I stayed at Sunset Bungalows in the lead up to Christmas. We decided to stay there as my parents had stayed here a few years earlier, and they rated it highly. Very glad that I listened to their advice because I can't imagine any other resort being any better than Sunset. The location is perfect, with the bungalows built over the Namba Tu lagoon. The sound of the water at night was so relaxing, and it was awesome to be able to look at the fish from our balcony. The room itself was clean, spacious, and very comfortable and very dark in the morning if you enjoy a sleep in. We visited the restaurant daily for both breakfast and dinner. I never had a bad meal there and would recommend the beef satay skewers and bircher museli. Both were delicious! I don't think our stay would have been as good as it was if it wasn't for the owners Audrey and Greg. We went to Vanuatu with nothing planned or booked, and solely on the advice of Audrey and Greg were able to plan activities every day which they were more than happy to book for us. They are so knowledgeable about Vanuatu, and offered us valuable advice daily particularly about transport, good spots to eat, and how much we should be paying for things. I would highly recommend Sunset Bungalows to anybody. Can't wait to go back!

We started our lovely honeymoon at Sunset Bungalows with amazing accommodation over a pristine lagoon. The staff are all lovely and helpful and the managers make you feel welcome. The resort provided us with a range of amenities such as fishing gear and canoes. The complimentary breakfast that is provided daily was delicious and you get to choose from a menu. Couldn't of hoped for a better place to stay.

We had an amazing Christmas week at Sunset Bungalows. All the bungalows and studios are set with their balconies over the lagoon, so you can hear the water lapping from your room and see the starfish at night. The accommodation itself was more than we'd ever expected. Sliding doors out onto the balcony, four-poster bed, loads of space and a lovely big shower. Rooms were cleaned well every day. It was easy to get into the main town from right outside the gate, but half the time we just relaxed at the resort, by the pool or on the lagoon in the kayaks. Even when the resort was completely full, it was still peaceful and relaxing. Greg & Audrey were amazing. They took the time everyday to see how we were finding the holiday, to see if we needed anything and to recommend things to do. Highly recommend Sunset Bungalows and will be back. Don't miss cocktail Happy Hour - the 'Vanuatu Me Crazy' is worth the trip alone!
