Fourth year staying at Dusita. Family-run resort with great food and clean and comfortable beach-front cottages. The cottages are small, but have a mini fridge and the option of fan or ac(for an additional fee). No hot water, but not needed.
Run by a family, this isn't the place to be waited on hand and foot, but the kitchen is open all day, breakfasts are made-to-order rather than a buffet, they'll cook any fish you catch on a fishing trip (if you want fresh crab, ask a day ahead and they'll get some from the nearby fishing village) and the grounds are lovingly cared for, and the wide expanse of lawn is ideal for sunbathing and there's plenty of shade. The family pets (a dalmatian, a german shepherd and some cats) are in residence, but keep to themselves. The beds are very comfortable and new this year, the beach is white sand with a very gradual slope, ideal for kids or sitting in the ocean with a beer. The dining area fronts the sea (many other resorts have dining areas away from the ocean) and there are several tables within feet of the beach. As there is not a large staff, sometimes meals are ordered at the kitchen window and then brought to your table. Very informal, but the food is varied and delicious and not dumbed-down for western tastes. There are some western options in case you tire of thai food. There's a small onsite shop where you can help yourself to beers, etc., and just bring them by the front desk to be added to your bill. Motorbikes can be arranged to tour the island. The photos on their website don't do the place justice. A wonderful place to relax and laze about. We brought some friends here this year who normally vacation at high-end Carribean resorts, and they loved it and now understand why we fly half way around the world each year to vacation here.
