The Dusit has all the amenities of a fine resort, including a marble lobby adorned with massive glass works—chandeliers rippling with crystals, and sculptures that seem to owe a debt to glass artist Dale Chihuly. Guest rooms carry the same elegance and are spacious, with big marble bathrooms, plush headboards on the beds, and plump, overstuffed arm chairs. Room rates vary with the view, and those on the ground floor have private verandas. Suites here are enormous, with real living rooms, plus a full pantry and dressing area. For all its air of formality, however, the resort is ideal for those who want to lounge in swimsuits and T-shirts and a relaxed holiday air pervades. It is a bit far from both Hua Hin and Cha-Am, but the resort is completely self-contained, and has what’s needed for a nice holiday.
