Beautiful bungalows, they a bit outdated but looked after well. The views are sensational and everything the pictures show it to be. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The pool area and waterfall is lovely and secluded. The rooms can be quite dark if you love a sleep in and the peaceful sound of the water outside just lulls you to sleep. The downsides are the mattress while comfy (if you like a firm mattress) is definitely of cheap quality. The chairs too. The air conditioner remotes were in Chinese so the settings cant be changed unless you can read the language. Fortunately it was on a default cool setting but we couldn't increase the air flow. The menu we thought was a bit bland except the complimentry breakfast, that was really lovely. The water pressure was weak but i think you get that on most of the island.

Quiet and relaxing

Had a great time staying at Sunset Bungalows. The bungalow and facilities were amazing, it felt like we were there on our own most of the time and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. The alfresco dining right on the lagoon was a great way to end the day with a lovely meal and a cold drink.
