Relax and unwind in your room

The guest rooms have a light and airy feel, decorated using neutral tones. Set within three-storey buildings amongst the gardens, there are a variety of upgrade options to benefit from the renovation, including ocean view rooms. The spacious feel of the accommodation is enhanced by the large windows, leading to either a private balcony or patio where you can sit and listen to the ocean. All rooms will be renovated by October 2024, these rooms feature modern bathrooms with walk-in showers, contemporary furniture, and all are freshly decorated with neutral tones.

Food, fun and entertainment

When the evening rolls in, enjoy a fruity cocktail, dine buffet-style or à la carte and listen to the live entertainment on offer several times each week – the hotel also showcases drumming troupes and cultural dancers. The hotel offers two restaurants, one for all-inclusive guests, along with two bars. Breakfast and themed buffet dinners are served in the Kudula Restaurant under a canopy or facing the beach, while a more intimate atmosphere can be found in the new restaurant with its extensive à la carte menu and fabulous beachside location. 

For children, there are water slides, as well as a toddler splash pool and a selection of games to enjoy with the entertainment team, from table football to giant chess and skittles.

Set in the heart of Kotu

The resort of Kotu with its excellent sandy beach is a popular, quieter alternative to Kololi and there are a couple of other hotels with restaurants open to outside guests, a craft market, beach bars and a small selection of local restaurants.

About the Local Area (Kotu)

This is a resort area that has developed over the past few years with some new bars and restaurants now open in winter, in addition to hotel restaurants which are open to the public.

Kotu boasts some popular hotels, with Kombo Beach dominating the beachfront. There is also the quieter charm of Bakotu and the beautiful gardens of Bungalow Beach Aparthotel. The area also has a busy and boisterous craft market in which you can find batiks and all manner of superb wood carvings. Kotu has a number of good restaurants including the excellent Sailor's local restaurant which is along the beach. There is also a golf course nearby.


A wide, sandy beach which is fairly flat and ideal for families, although not a very deep beach in terms of distance to the ocean. The area outside the Sunset Beach can change quite dramatically depending on the direction of the Kotu stream.
