Bang goes another beach access......built in a dip....hope they've got the drainage right.....actually, I don't, I'd rather see the place flooded a touch of "Som nam naa".

I guess Dusit wouldn't be that daft....maybe they'll account for the sewage from the site though?

there are a few places still under 500 baht, but usually they have inferior beach/location etc.

The Dusit Princess has been open for about 5 months. There was going to be an official press tour in November but the place wasnt completed. I went to meet some people there at Christmas, not much space for all the guests. Pool area is very small compared to Dewa / Amari. But the beach is very nice - it should be as it's man made.

Sunday will begin with a stroll along the 3 kilometers of sand and sparkles
Made me smile as the beach is about 400 metres long. Can walk further if you walk across rocks. Just dont plan on swimming in the sea - very shallow and a rocky seabed.

Still a few small problems to iron out, when there was a heavy downpour recently the lobby flooded. ( You may get your wish Wilko.) But Dusit only manage it, they don't own it.

Can still stay in a beachfront wooden hut on Klong Prao beach for under 500 baht/night at KB Huts, Tiger Huts or Thale Bungalows. All in far better locations than the Dusit
