Offset ILS's can be implemented to avoid terrain impinging into the splay but may be a bit harder in this instance (Phuket a good example, albeit a 1.4 degree offset). The DA wouldn't be a whole lot less than your average VOR or RNAV but at least the visibility requirement would be better, which is the main reason for go-arounds at Goldy.
