As nature rule, sunrise from the east, sunset in the west. I think Benoa is in the east.

It depends on the time of year as to where the sun sets (north or south) so it’s not just a matter of the sun sets in the West.. We have enjoyed some beautiful sunsets (and happy hour cocktails!) at the Novotel Bali Benoa in January.

Mmmmm. #3 i thought the sun always sets to the west ! It may depend on the direction one is facing in Benoa but if your facing east you'll only see the sunrise !!

Actually if we want to be correct about this sunset conversation then have a look at this table,


If you scroll down to the date today you will see that the sun rose in Denpasar at 114 degrees, which is east south east, and will set at 246 degrees, which is about west south west, west is 270 degrees, and the sun will set exactly in the west on 21 March 2019. Same for Benoa.

This is why at certain times of the year AngL25 may have seen the sunset from the Novotel, not that I know how that hotel is situated, and it may not have been over the water either.

There are some photos of sunsets from the Novotel Bali Benoa on TA. The sunset is not as good as from somewhere like Singel Fin at Blue Point, but good enough while enjoying happy hour cocktails on the beach😊

This site has a nice animated diagram of the sun’s movement at different times of the year: https:/…
