Libong Sunset Resort

Quality rooms, not much else

What we say: 3.5 stars

After looking very promising when it first popped up in 2011, Sunset Resort didn’t appear to be doing too well by time of writing. We arrived in March 2015 to find the restaurant closed and a few women who spoke very little English hanging out in the reception area. It seemed that no guests were in residence at the time, and the English-speaking owner who gave us a welcoming greeting on a previous trip also wasn’t around. The dirt-cheap bamboo huts had also been cleared out, with only a handful of large wood-and-cement bungalows now available. If you don’t mind the half-open atmosphere (at least outside of the busiest months) and somewhat isolated location, the rooms are in good shape and offer reasonable value. All facing a rocky patch of sea with a hill rising up behind, they come with woven bamboo walls, hardwood floors, fans, clean hot-water bathrooms, comfy beds with silk throws, mosquito nets, tables, several windows, some interesting peacock art and large porches with a couple of plastic chairs. Family rooms that comfortably sleep three are also available with TVs and fans in addition to air-con. If judging only by the rooms, Sunset arguably offers the best value on the beach. Low tide reveals loads of offshore rocks in front of the resort, and at high tide it’s not possible to walk along the beach to the other resorts, though you can cut through Lang Kao village via a dirt lane (bring a torch).
