Where in the world to soak up the best sunsets.
These resorts are home to some of our favourite vantage spots to soak up the dreamy half-light that rears its aesthetically-pleasing head during the ‘magic hour’.
SAMOA – Le Lagoto Resort & Spa
Le Lagoto means ‘sunsets’ in Samoan and just one evening at the resort proves how aptly named it is. Dusk in this corner of the world is particularly stunning and the resort’s beachfront infinity pool is renowned for being the best spot in Savaii to watch the sun sink over the horizon with a cocktail in hand at happy hour. People cosme from all over the island to appreciate the wonder of a Le Lagoto sunset.
FIJI – Koro Sun Resort & Rainforest Spa
Koro Sun’s adults-only Edgewater Beach Club is the perfect location for sipping cocktails at sundown. Watch as the sky turns shades of red and orange reminiscent of the Australian outback and the resort’s expansive grounds are cast in magical silhouettes.
MALDIVES – Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu
Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu embodies the Maldives as it should be: nourishing, charming, inspiring and enchanting. A soulful Maldivian vacation spot, guests of the Beach Bar are treated to front row seats for a relaxing sunset where the everyday stresses of life are left behind and you can reconnect with nature.
SAMOA – Sinalei Reef Resort
Enjoy the sunset from Sinalei Reef Resort’s famed over-water restaurant, Ava I Toga, then sit back and dine under a canopy of stars. The restaurant’s absolute waterfront position makes it the best spot to soak up Samoa’s famous twilight colour palette.
MALDIVES – Soneva Fushi
There are two sunset experiences you can’t go past while staying at Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. Firstly, Out of the Blue is the resort’s two-storey over-water structure that houses five unique dining outlets, a bar and cellar, Michelin-starred chefs, and phenomenal sunsets. Secondly, a sunset dolphin cruise will treat you to the sight of dozens of dolphins playing in the light of the setting sun. While you sail ever deeper into the sea, you will be served a selection of canapés and a flute of Champagne, all accompanied by the beats of traditional Maldivian Boduberu drums.
FIJI – Tokoriki Island Resort
Take a look at Tokoriki Island Resort’s Instagram account and you’ll be convinced there’s nowhere in the world that does sunset quite as well as Fiji’s number one resort. Afternoon drinks at the pool bar and the sweet sounds of the famous Tokoriki Band are the perfect accompaniments to skies streaked with hues of pink and gold.
INDONESIA – Bawah Reserve
Six islands, three lagoons, and kilometres of white-sand beaches in an untouched Indonesian archipelago sound like the recipe for natural wonder. Throw in spectacular sunsets and you’ve found paradise. Our favourite spot at Bawah Reserve to watch the sun melt into the horizon is the Jules Verne bar, where you can also enjoy some pretty special cocktails.
