I loved staying at sun set beach! The owner Irene is so helpful and really looks after you during your trip! The islands are not easy to move between and Irene helped us catch our ferry back to mainland and even get between resorts for free. Sunset beach is a beautiful private beach, and a really good first and last stop if you are planning to move between islands/beaches. Her bungalows are basic, but they are right on the beach and you do get a beautiful sunset each night. There is beautiful coral within swimming distance from the beach shore! Food is great and she has a lot of kittens to play with! I think everyone going to Togian islands should stop and visit sunset beach for at least one night of their trip :)

From the diffrent Islands this was for me the best place. Amazing sunset, close to some day trip destenation, lightning plankton at night. Food was excellent and Irina the owner is very friendly and caring! Bungalows are simple but fine (its part of it) good bed!

We found this place by accident, our boat captain recommended it as we were passing by. We stopped to check it out, and ended up staying 10 days! We stayed in the cottages in front. These are on stilts and have high stairs to climb, but we could enjoy the beautiful views of the sunset every evening while chilling in the hammocks. There are a few other chalets in the resort that do not have stairs, and these also have beautiful beach views. The accommodation is pretty basic, but the rooms are spacious and the food definitely makes up for it. The owner, chef and boat captain are all awesome people. They treated us like family, and at the end we felt like we truly were. The cottages all have access to a beautiful private beach, and there's great snorkeling right around the island. You can also go out on activities like snorkeling trips (stingless jelly-fish lake, Baracuda beach, Corina Beach are all excellent choices) and treks, or just snorkel right off the beach by the resort! You have to be prepared though as this is not luxury accommodation, but once you are there you will forget the rest of the world exists. Please note that they only accept cash here, this was our limiting factor and the reason we only stayed the 10 days. There is also a free shuttle to- and from- Wakai once a week. I would definitely recommend it! I plan to visit Togian islands again soon, and will definitely stay at Sunset Cottages when I do.

I spent holidays again at Sunsetbeach - one year after.And it was great again! All rooms and bungalows have amazing panoramic views over ocean and islands.Food was excellent! Lots of fruit! Price stayed the same 175000 IRP per person.The resort is unique- only for 10-12 person, so you feel like at home, like a very honorable member of the family. And all the guests there are always so excellent ! It is situated on its own island, amidst wild beauty of the ocean,rocks,jungle forests. There are lots of different birds, you can see many crabs and shining plancton at the beach and in the sea!!!! Snorkeling is also great with lots of fish! Now they have their own dive center with new equipment.The owner Irina is a divemaster and German instructor Mickel can make courses for the beginners. They advertise the lowest prices for diving in Togean islands with Motto Everybody can dive! I recommend for sure this place to all the travellers coming to Togean islands! Thank you, dear Sunsetbeach for my great holidays!

When you come to sunset beach you must be prepared: sunset beach is a different kind of resort. You will enjoy the huge bubgalows with a very basic bathroom (indonesian style as irina says), the bucket shower and watching the sunset from your balcony. About irina: you will fall in love with the owner of the resort. It feels a bit like sitting next to your mother when everybody has their three meals together at one table chatting to each other. If you want to go for some tours, she can show you jellyfish lake and some snorkeling spots for a reasonable price, and she will even go for some dives if you ask her. If she likes you (and she seems to like almost everybody), she will take you around and show you the villages nearby and everything that is great. In the evenings you can go to swim with lightening plancton or play some cards with irina. There is only electricity from 6 to 10 but you wont miss it anyway.

Sunseth beach is a small resort located near Wakai, surrounded by coconut trees and jungle. It has a beautiful private sandbeach. The owner Irina does a lot to pleasure her guests and is very helpful to provide useful information. Irina arranges different interesting trips at low budget prices. Her staff is very friendly and the cook prepares tasty and varied dishes. You will never get hungry; there is always plenty of food, biscuits, fruits, coffee and thee. The 5 cottages are clean and comfortable, with bathroom (toilet and fresh water in basket) and hammock. Especially the cottages with seaview are large and nice. Electricity is available between 6 p.m and 10 p.m. It is the only resort where you have phone coverage with the possibility to write and get an sms. Snorkeling in front of the beach is not that interesting, but a lot of interesting snorkeling places are close by. A visit to the jelly fish lake Carina beach, Taipi island is really worth the effort! We loved this place, which we visited twice. The location is perfect is you like to travel further from Wakai to Gorontalo, Ampana, the island Una Una or other islands.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sunset Beach a lot. The owner (Irina) really makes a great effort to make the stay of her guests as good and comfortable as possible, and this all at budget prices. After having visited several resorts (on various islands) on the Togians, I can say that the food at this resort was the best of all and most complete (including, pancakes, white coffee, bananas, etc.). There is a nice and clean sand beach and on some nights you can enjoy glowing plankton. It is a magic experience when you snorkel in it with "star" light all around as you move. Several tours can be booked; jelly fish lake, Carina beach, .. The rooms (especially the 2 rooms with high location and view on the sea) are very spacious and have bathrooms. The only downside of this resort is that snorkeling in front of the beach is not the best. However, this can be compensated by nearby snorkeling trips (such as to Kadidiri).Overall, I highly recommend this place.

We had an amazing experience at Irena's Place. She really works hard to make that place confortable for all her visitors, we can feel it. It's a small resort with a private beach, isolated from others but still not too far from Wakai. The room has a private bathroom with clear water, confortable matress and balcony with hammock and view on the sea (for most of the rooms). The food is also really good: fresh fish, vegetables and fruits everyday ! We enjoyed our time there, playing on the beach (badminton, racket ball), swimming and playing card at night with Irena. She is helpful and knows the area. She really made the rest of our trip in Sulawesi easier. Thank you again Audrey & Hugo
