“Perfect accomodation for travellers on a budget wanting honest, clean, quiet beachside bungalows.”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

At my stay at Sunset Bungalows in the Klong Nin beach area of Koh Lanta, I came from horrible dirty and dark bungalows at Kentiang Bay Resort, where I spent an intire night itching from something unidentified in the bed, so this was definately a great change of accomodation.
There are not too many bungalows, but they are all nice and clean, the ones I saw with a double bed and a large single bed, so actually enough room if you are travelling 3 people. They have good sized bathrooms with hot shower, tv, WIFI, and a small terrace.
We were there in beginning of low season, so there was no restaurant open, but I think there might be one in high season, -anyways, they had a really lovely terasse on the beach where we took the liberty to drink some chilled wine that we brought with us. There are no fridges in the rooms, but the land lady were so kind to lend us both an ice box and a toaster, so we could save some money and have a proper (non-thai style) breakfast, which I especially like after eating nutritionless white bread-dead eggs diabetes thai breakfast for 7 months....:)
Anyway, we only paid 400 baht pr night, and I think this is pretty much the best you will get for this price on the island. The roundhouse a few meters down the road have nice, also clean bungalows, a little more simple and small, and with an 'open' bathroom, but you will probably be able to always get it around 100 baht cheaper. Nice too though, a little more boheme'ish looking.
I give my best recommendations for Sunset Bungalows.
There is a travelling agency a bit further down the road towards north, -of course I forgot the name, its on the same side of the road just across from a massage parlour, but the lady in there was so nice and helped the four of us, all going in different directions with such great knowledge and patience, and she even came to see us off at the bungalows in the morning, Really good service, and if you are looking for help, this is definately the place to go, so sorry I forgot the name, will post again if I remember later!

Room Tip: The room we stayed in had no air con, but was still nice and fresh with a cool breeze from the ocean...

We stayed here during our holiday January 2011 and it was wonderful.

All the rooms are cosy and clean. We started off in one of the cheapest rooms near the road and up graded a few times until we had a room nearest the sea and could hear it when we woke. Rak, the owner is very friendly, fun and helpful and their food is wonderful. There are a couple of wooden decking areas at the front of the property where you can sit, eat and drink, get some shelter from the sun midday and gaze out over the sea. There are several ladies who do massage in the open air in a covered area who were the best we found on Ko Lanta. (Do ask for 'soft soft' though if you prefer a relaxing massage to an invigorating one!)
We would definitely recommend and would love to go back.

Room Tip: Dont asume that all accommodation on Ko Lanta will have a hot water shower like we did. Check first!

Sunset Bungalows is on Klong Nin Beach - one of the best beaches on Koh Lanta. In front of Sunset Bungalows the beach has no rocks and is great for swimming or just floating for people of all ages. Sunset Bungalows is very reasonably priced and is right on the beach. The massage girls there are very good and conveniently located. We ate most of our meals in the gazebo on the beach and they are great value, and delicious!! And after dinner we always enjoyed sawng Chang yai (two large Chang beer) Rak is a very personable manager. We will always go back there!!!

Room Tip: We could have had A/C but have only used a fan which was adequate. Rooms are VERY clean! Quieter r...

We have had a awesome time at Sunset bungalows because:

- the staff is so kind and helpfull
- the bungalows are right on the beach, clean and very affordable
- the kloong nin beach is awesome, no rocks in the water, thick sand
. you can get a great massage only a few steps away from the sunset bungalows at bell massage, who has 4 beds on the beach
- you can eat the genuine Thai food over here. Just tell them how spicy you want to have it and they will prepare you a great dinner.
- this beach is not that touristic (on the first beach, you'll only meet swedish families with their kids, this can get quite annoying after a few days)...
- get a cocktail, lay down in the hammock and overlook the beautiful sea

Sunset bungalows is a very clean resort. friendly staff who will call you by name, good food, internet, hire bikes and even pick you up for free locally. We have had a great stay here and would recommend this to any travelers who want to be on the beach without breaking the budget.
