“Happy with my choice”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

Very good boutique hotel(ex Sunset Hill hotel -the taxi driver know it) ,good service ,good rooms(bungalows),salty pool´,amazing view,no restaurant,can order at night from Ubud for free delivery.Spa -they use a women who have a massage studio only 50 meters if you turn and walk to left and the prices a much more cheaper than to order massage in the hotel(in the hotel 150 000 IDR,in her massage studio 95 000 IDR .Taxi from the hotel to the Ubud is take about 15-20 min and cost around 60 -70 000 IDR in one direction(both about 120.000),but if you whant to walk the center of Ubud is just 1,5 km from the hotel ...just go out from Bliss hotel and turn to the right and keep street ahead -takes about 20-25 minutes walking.No free shuttle to the Ubud as they write in Booking.com ,the internet is not very good,no restaurant,5 days they don't change my sheets.Any way I am very happy with my choice to stay in this hotel !!!

Room Tip: all bungalows are the same ...maybe this close to the swimming pool is the best(don't know numbe...

A Quiet haven

We were looking for quiet after the big cities of the south.
The real Ubud is its temples and rice fields which are outside the main road.
The hotel is gorgeous with an infinity pool overlooking a jungle valley, lovely staff and only 7 well separated rooms (so quiet!)

Bungalows: upon arrival you are greeted with fresh fruit cocktails, a fruit basket and exceptionnal smells from the surrounding flowers. Rooms are spotless and big. Beds are wider than they are long (sleeps 3 people easy). Hot water good.
Staff: discreet and present. Manager Kevin very professional. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful and fresh.
Facilities: good wifi in restaurant and pool. And what a pool!

Negative: no shuttle bus, but taxi is available (spent 350K for half a day with major sights) - should be 50K for single trip to Ubud. Driver Putu extremely nice, good history knowledge and english.
Spa not advertised though available.
No restaurant on site, but ordering delivery is easy.


Overall very positive and peaceful experience. As quiet and picturesque as it gets. Hidden jewel.

Took a friends recommendation to stay at the Sunset Hill but it wasn't quite as expected ....

We were greeted by the Manager who explained that the owners were away. He said that we could use the pool as we wished but not to disturb other guests. We were told that it was a ten min walk to Ubud, but having already read the earlier comments on trip advisor we knew that it wasn't the case.

The room was ok but a bit tired, but none the less was in an amazing position. We were told that if we needed a cab to simply ring the bell at 'reception' (an outside space) and someone would book it.

Having arrived early in the afternoon we left to explore Ubud. Returning later, we found the place deserted ie no guests and no staff apart from some builders who didn't speak any English.

They left after a while and assuming that someone would be around to call a taxi to take us to town for dinner we went for a swim. The pool was nice, but there were no towels available other than one towel from the room.

Returning to the room we found ants in the shower so cleared them out. There was a crack in the wall and they came back in. There was a fridge with nothing in it, so we needed to go back to the town for something to eat and drink. Going back to 'reception' we found that we were quite simply the only people in the entire place - staff and other guests were none existent. It was dark and as there were no phones in the rooms we were quite simply stranded in the dark in the middle of nowhere ! This in itself seemed quite ridiculous and frankly irresponsible.

We walked for a mile and found a kind French lady who ran a place up the road who cooked us some food.

Returning the place was still empty and returning to our room we found it over run with ants, flying and otherwise, on and in the bed !

After an uncomfortable night we went for breakfast. The builders and a maid had returned who served us an adequate breakfast, but on asking for milk for our coffee, were told that she hadn't any and hadn't been to the market !

We went back to town and returning in the late afternoon again found that the place was deserted. Marooned yet again, we found a small restaurant that was open close by and whilst this was adequate the better restaurants were in town.

We telephoned the owners wife to ask for some explanation but she was at the airport. Returning to room towels were still dirty from the day before (we had used them to clear up the ants) and the bugs were back !

The next morning having complained to the owners wife the Manager turned up and explained that they were having building works for a grand reopening ! When we asked why were they open at all then, he seemed rather confused and said he was only slowly getting used to European's mentality.

We had planned to stay for another night, but by this point we had had enough so left and found a very nice hotel on the other side of the valley with staff and guests in abundance !

The hotel has 5 or 6 rooms, we stayed 5 nights and we only saw one other couple here..
The pool is amazing, beautiful peaceful views. A place to have a good rest
But the place is in the middle of nowhere, to walk to ubud takes around 25 mins, the walk is nice during the day but at night you better take a cub (around 4 euro)
The breakfast is as big as you want, and the service is very good. For lunch or dinner there is only one restaurant 5 mins walk from the hotel
The worst thing is that at night you can find many ants by the toilet, but you are in the middle of the fields so i guess there is not much to do..

This hotel is just amazing!!! The rooms are very nice and stylish, there are so many flowers, plants and trees in the garden (ok: don't be afraid of little animals!) and the infinity pool is great!!! The hotel is very small and quiet with only 7 rooms and if you want to go to Ubud you have to walk like 25 minutes across the rice fields. In the village there was only one restaurant, just 50 meters beside, we went there every night, knocked the door and they opend for us. Walking back home at night the rice fields were full of little glow-worms which was just beautiful. We stayed 5 days in this hotel and it was really worth it! The breakfast in the hotel was veeeeeeeeeery big and tasty and the staff was very friendly. One day I will come back.... I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!

We happened to stumble across Sunset Hill while on a hike along the Campuan Ridge. One look at this place and we were sold! The rooms were amazing - beautiful, clean, calming, spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful.

A few things you should know:
1) The hotel is a little outside of Ubud and a bit difficult to find. It is a 30 minute walk into the center of Ubud along the Campuan ridge or a 10 minute scooter or car ride. We stayed at the hotel with 7 friends and rented scooters during the time that we were there, which we highly recommend. Although a little out of the center, the view of the jungle from the salt-water infinity pool is magnificent and the evening sounds were much more pleasant than those of the busy streets in the center of Ubud.

2) Breakfast was included and usually consisted of fruit, toast and omelet. However, the restaurant was not open for other meals (there are plans to open a full restaurant in the near future). Hotels and restaurants within walking distance of Sunset Hill were just average, but there is a supermarket nearby and we were allowed to use the kitchen.

3) They do not take credit card, so have a lot of cash handy!

Overall, we absolutely loved this place. Really affordable for what you get.
