Although located in a remote area, the newly developed luxury resort of Dusit Buncha creates a secluded yet exclusive experience. With a variety of higher end villas to choose from, the resort provides a quiet place for the guests to relax or sunbathe on their expansive balconies, swim in the pool or the sea, or simply enjoy the natural surroundings of the mountainside.
Welcome to Dusit Buncha Resort
The newer resort Dusit Buncha was designed for those looking for some seclusion on a small island. Set far apart from the main beach of Sairee, the resort is located towards the most northwestern part of Koh Tao. The rugged surroundings, narrow pathways with steep steps from villa to villa and a ten-minute taxi ride to the populated part of Koh Tao makes this a place for the particular type of nature loving guest.
Location of Dusit Buncha Resort Koh Tao
The location of the resort has an amazing view of island of Koh Nangyuan. It is one of the best places on the island for a sunset view – and with the fully furnished terraces and the Nangyuan Terrace Restaurant, the guests can appreciate it in full. However, there is emphasis on seclusion. The road to Dusit Buncha is dotted with a few houses for the local residents, so in order to reach the island hub of Sairee a taxi ride is a must. For those thinking they make the journey on foot, it is possible for the physically fit. While the 45 minute to an hour long walk has many great views and is canopied by the jungle surroundings, there are many steps hills to climb up and down.
Those who plan on staying a few days usually hire a motorbike, enabling them to come and go with ease without relying on a taxi each time they want to go exploring. But most people are pleased to stay at the resort exclusively by passing each day with sunbathing on their decks, kayaking in the sea, lounging in the swimming pool or by simply drinking a cocktail while reading a book.
Accommodation at Dusit Buncha Resort Koh Tao
High-end resorts and accommodation are fairly new to Koh Tao in comparison to the rest of Thailand. The island was once known to having only rustic wooden bungalows with mosquito netting surrounding a hard mattress for the young and unfazed backpacker. However, over the years Koh Tao has strived to change it’s image and started developing places that are more solid, comfortable and containing western amenities. With that in mind, the staff at Dusit Buncha are welcoming and well presented, but often times the ‘island mentality’ is evident when it comes to efficiency. While the staff members are experienced in the hospitality industry, maintaining a more relaxed atmosphere does sometimes take a toll on how things get done. For travelers who have experienced Southeast Asia before are often prepared and can take this with a grain of salt. For those who are coming to Koh Tao for the first time, it might be a bit hard to get the type of service one would expect at the Ritz!
With said, emphasis should be put on the fact that the resort is located in a stunning and peaceful location. Being far away from the main roads that have constant traffic and being removed from bars and clubs that blare music until the early hours of the morning is most welcome for travelers looking for a place to clear their mind and enjoy their surroundings. The villas are creatively built upon the sturdy rock formations near the sea or on the rugged hillside. In addition to the outside ascetics, each villa contains the modern amenities of home: comfortable furniture, clean bathrooms, air-conditioning, a television, refrigerator and mini-bar. Depending on your level of travel, there are additional facilities and upgrades that you can take on for your stay at Dusit Buncha. For example, the Deluxe Romantic Seaside Villa has a panorama sea view as well as a wider terrace for leisurely outdoor activities. In addition, this particular villa incorporates the natural surroundings of the mountainside and uses the natural rock as part of the wall interior.
Dusit Buncha is striving to become one of the most recognized resorts when it comes high-end and luxury accommodation. Despite what some would call a ‘slow start’, the potential for this place becoming well known is great. The backdrop of Koh Nangyuan, the peaceful jungle surrounding and the beautiful rock formations do add magic to the resort that will certainly enhance your stay on Koh Tao.
