“Amazing and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We had a perfect stay here, the staff were all very helpful and attentive. The whole resort was spotlessly clean and well run. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the views were amazing. There is a little private sandy beach with crystal clear water. I can't think of anything negative to say about this resort, we will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: Room 109 has amazing views and is right on the private beach.

Having looked at all the hotels on the Island we decided to stay at the Dusit Buncha Resort. I am so glad we did. The staff were amazing and looked after us so well - Especially Lynn who runs the resort. Food is excellent, I recommend the Blue Crab, and the view is stunning. You will need to get a bike to stay there but to see the whole Island you need one anyway. There is a little private beach which has crystal clean water and good snorkeling. The one thing to beware is the mosquito's - Remember the Jungle juice - Having said this, I think that goes for the whole Island!

The best thing about this resort is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. What else can I say, the food is fantastic as are the drinks - try the pineapple lassis, great little infinity pool, lovely spot for snorkeling, nice accommodation, perfect rock viewing point for sunset and the best view of Nang Yuan island.Great!

We stayed at Dusit Buncha for 4 nights in Feb 2012. This is a wonderful resort on Koh Tao. The snorkeling in front of the resort was great. The resort does have a small private beach, but its only accessible at lower tide (mid-to-late afternoon) The staff was very helpful. Our room had a beautiful view of the Koh Nang Yuan national park. The resort is a short taxi ride into town, so we mostly ate at the resort (which was delicious, but more pricey than eating in town). But if you factored in the taxi cost, it was about the same price as eating in town. I can't think of anything negative worth mentioning. If I ever take a 26 hour trip to Koh Tao again, I'd happily stay at the Dusit Buncha again.

Very nice staff. Large villa with nice trrace. The food is delicious. Cute little swimming pool with view on sea and sunset... (too bad they close it at 18:00 though). The property is located on a very sloppy land, beautiful but need a little effort to move from sea to bungalows.. No beach, but nice huge stones and blue water for amazing snorkelling... Free open wifi everywhere in the resort from restaurants to bungalows... Nice@! ;-)

We visited this hotel as we had to find new accommodation when we got to Koh Tao. We were greeted with a smile and all of the staff were helpful and polite. The rooms are very spacious, clean and charming. The setting is absolutely romantic. It is perfect for honeymooners or couples wanting to feel privacy and serenity. The views are great and the location is perfect as it is close to all the main spots. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are clean. The outdoor lounging areas are perfect for relaxing and reading a great holiday novel. We really liked this place and would have stayed here except that we felt it was more for couples or families with older children. It is built on a steep area so we did not think it would be a good choice with our small child. There were quite a few steps and hills and we were informed by the staff that the beach disappears at high tide. But if it was just my hubby and me I would have highly considered staying here. The prices are also reasonable. Also, if you do not hire a quadbike or motobike during your trip to Koh Tao then this is a perfect resort for you as it is close by everything but still secluded enough to feel like you have escaped it all. It is literally a few minutes away from some of the top dive/snorkel spots on Koh Tao so it is in the best location for that. I would reccommend this resort to everyone!

We had a great time at Dusit Buncha. Very nice service, beautiful location with view over Nyan Yuan island (a bit far from the city, but with free shuttle and help with taxi ordering it went okey) and great laundry service (50 baht per kilo). We got a room upgrade to a reduced price, which was very nice! The only negative thing may be if you have room on the hillside (which we had first night) there's a steep walk up to the room!
