“Amazing palce”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I was visiting the place only for two night but I have to come back again. I am travelling a lot in business and for pleasure and I haven't seen for very long time such a nice room with outstanding terrace and see view. Thsi is not you can find everywhere. I must add that teh building and whole are is very clean which is not very often case in Thailand. The atmosphere is creating by Dutch people and this is for sure the key to success. I can recommend this place for everyone, who is looking for astonish, relaxing place. Katarzyna from Poland

Room Tip: All rooms with terrace have breathtaking view!!!!

Truly the most stunning resort we’ve ever stayed in. The staff, facilities, views, room, location were all perfect. We did not want to leave and would highly recommend this resort to anyone! Particularly good for couples – the setting is so romantic and peaceful, with so many stunning beaches nearby to choose from. We will certainly be returning!

We stayed at Sunset Hill as a family of 4. The children 4 and 5 yrs old. We planned for a week of total relaxation on Koh Phagnan and that is exactly what we found at Sunset Hill. The location for this resort is well chosen, privately located on a hill side overwatching the Gulf of Thailand toward Anthong Marine park. This facing towards the east brings what the resort's name promises...sunset!! Beautiful. We stayed in the 2 bedroom rooftop appartement, which included a private sundeck with jacuzzi and loads of privacy...it was great to just sit out there during the day for some sunbathing and during the evenings to relax, read and have a drink. Besides this great appartment there was a great infinity pool, which was a major attraction to our kids. They spent quite some hourse splashing through the water there. The staff was very friendly and approached us in a personal manner, which makes you feel very welcome as guests. Our two girls immediately befriended the staff at the desk. Due to the private location of the resort we had no worries letting the girls wander around or go to the lounge on there own, even being only 4 and 5. We ate/lunched regularly at the resorts restaurant, where they offer good food for very reasonable prices. During our stay work on an outside terrace was completed so outdoor dining is now also a possibilty. There is still some work in progress on the resort, finishing a new (very goodlooking) building with rooms. Great effort is made to minimize impact on the guests and we never had any disturbance of it whatsoever.
All in all we had a great stay....just what we wanted and best of all...we were totally relaxed as we moved on for our further travel plans....we definitely recomment Sunset Hill to everyone trying to find a quiet, beautiful place to unwind and enjoy the good life!! Thank you Sunset for a fantastic week.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom with rooftop is a superb place for a family with children.

Within a few hours of checking in, when we realised that we had booked more time at our Samui resort than at Sunset Hill, we wished we could have reversed the bookings. Sunset Hill is located on a steep incline but the aquamarine view of the Gulf of Thailand from our enormous balcony (we stayed at a grand junior suite) on a clear and sunny day is well worth the climb. A set of wheels (car or 2 wheeler) is essential since Phangan and the resort itself is a little secluded. But if you are looking for a laid back and romantic trip to a gorgeous island resort, look no further. We were woken everyday by birdsong and there is a work-in-progress though delightful garden replete with blue spotted butterflies, amorous statues and a few friendly and curious cats and dog. The infinity pool is small but whenever we went there was no one else - so it very much felt like a private pool overlooking the sea below. The cosy restaurant is a lovely place to drink in a view of the azure water and enjoy a drink - but the cooking and portions could do with some improvement. Booking a scooter through the resort was a good decision after all the horror stories we had heard about tourists being extorted for "damage" caused to bikes. The reception/management were always helpful with suggestions for excellent restaurants and scenic beaches, arranging cabs and organised a last minute ferry to Phangan from Samui for my husband. We only had to pay the actual cost of the ferry/cab.

Because of the difficulty in arranging these wonderful facilities in a remote part of the island, the management have imposed some pretty hefty fines for various "prohibited" activities - smoking in the rooms, flushing toilet paper down the commodes, losing the room key, etc. It would be advisable to read these rules at the time of booking to avoid hassles later on. Also we noticed some construction work was ongoing- not that we experienced noise or disturbance from any of it.

We had an excellent and amazingly romantic stay at Sunset Hill. At times it honestly felt a little surreal with everything seeming so breathtakingly beautiful and we can't wait to go back. Thank you so much!

We had the most wonderful stay at Sunset Hill! The staff was so incredibly friendly and accommodating. Special thanks to Mickey, Art and Sylvester for making us feel like family. If you plan on staying at Sunset Hill, be sure to befriend these people. Although the resort was under construction it didn't impact our room -- which was a penthouse with a great view of the ocean. The resort has a nice restaurant with a small menu of Thai and western food; however, the best food is down the hill at Big Mountain BBQ. A must for anyone in the area. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and recommend it to anyone looking to get the most value for their money.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom penthouse with ocean view.

I stayed at Sunset Hill for one month whilst doing the agama one month intensive yoga course. I knew the course would be demanding so I wanted to stay somewhere where I felt comfortable when coming home in the evening. Sunset Hill certainly achieved that! I felt spoiled with the great accommodation and had the best nights sleep. I also loved the pool and the amazing views.
There was a friendly atmosphere in the hotel and I made some great friends which made my stay there very special.

If you want to do yoga and and stay in great hotel in luxury accommodation this the the place to be.

This hilltop resort is a must see for anyone stopping into koh phangan! The infinity pool and view from all over the resort is simply breataking. The general manager Art is very nice and welcoming and all staff will go out of their way for any of your needs. The prices for rooms are VERY reasonable, even on a budget! There are room safes and literally anything that you need is at your fingertips! I can sit here all day and write about how amazing this place is but I have to get back to the unforgettable pool! You will have to see for yourself. People stop by here just to look at the view and I can completly understand why. Rent a scooter and get up here! I personally rate this 5/5 stars. low season is a perfect time to come as the resort is deserted and feels like you have the place to yourself. That's all for now.
Cheers!
