With bungalows facing the sea beyond a large lawn crisscrossed with coconut palms and a well cared-for garden, Dusita is a solid choice for families and couples seeking creature comforts and beachfront access.

Made from coconut wood logs, cement and smooth wood boards under green metal roofs, the bungalows are a good size and kept to a better standard than at Ngam Kho Resort next door. All come with air-con, small TVs, fridges, safes, kettles and partially open-air garden bathrooms, though only the pricier rooms come with hot water. Either way we think the value is solid.

Despite a lack of decoration and the inevitable scuffs left by hard-playing kids, the rooms capture a certain feel of holidaying in a wholesome way. Cotton drapes cover fully screened windows and rotating ceiling fans placed above the bed give you a second cooling option. You also get a front porch with bench and free WiFi is advertised.

The freestanding huts are arranged in a single row so that each opens to that huge garden lawn filled with hammocks and lounge chairs set in the shade. The beach directly out front is not so good, but on the far side of Dusita’s picturesque wooden pier it improves dramatically.

Serving fresh coffee and a mix of Thai and Western food, the unusually designed restaurant has tables in several gazebo-type structures cooled by fans and the sea breeze. The family-run resort also has a massage sala and the usual kayaks, but there’s no pool or other facilities.

When initially walking past Dusita along the beach we were a bit put off by the signs declaring don’t steal coconuts and don’t trespass. However on back-to-back visits we’ve left feeling welcomed by the owners. They perpetuate a quiet, family-friendly atmosphere without the package tourist vibe that you get at some of Kut’s midrange resorts. Reservations are often necessary in high season.
