Sun Suko Boutique Retreat had not yet opened its doors when we popped in mid-2016, but friendly staff let us have a good poke around the all-but-finished hotel that should be open by the time you are reading this.
With a stunning mountain backdrop, this smart boutique hotel reimagines traditional teak houses into 10 modern and comfortable rooms surrounding a sparkling pool. The Swiss fashion designer owner obviously has an eye for style — the smart rooms use traditional textures, materials and colours and the result is fresh and contemporary.
Ranging from spacious to cavernous, and all different, the air-con rooms are furnished with antiques and have mosquito-netted beds. Beautiful cement tiles are a feature of many rooms as are carved teak panels. Some rooms add outdoor bathrooms and all are equipped with hot-water rain showers. Balconies and terraces offer outdoor living.
We loved the upstairs rooms with views to the mountains. The garden was very much a work in progress when we visited, but established trees were being transplanted, and it shouldn't take long for a lovely garden to propagate and offer shade to the swimming pool. An on-site spa and restaurant will ensure you’re pampered inside and out. Breakfast and WiFi are included in the rates.
Sun Suko Boutique Retreat is tucked back in the village on the mountainside of Pemutern. We think it’s great, our only quibble is that for this high price point, it’s not by the sea.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
