We fell into the Lanta Castaway after arriving to see the Dive and Relax diving operation. The Lanta Castaway resort was excellent value. The food was very good, even the Tex-Mex and we are from Colorado! I preferred the Thai food. The Mai Tai drinks at the bar were most relaxing, especially after watching the sunset on the beach chairs.... More

We have just come back from our trip to Thailand which included 10 days at Lanta Castaway. We came with friends and booked the duplex bungalows so had two double rooms for our family of four (two young children). The resort is set in a beautifully maintained garden setting which opens onto long beach - a perfect location. Our rooms... More

We stayed at Lanta Castaway for 7 nights in total (we extended our stay from 4 nights to 7 because we fell in love with the resort!). We stayed in S1 and then move to D2. We found the rooms are clean, comfortable and most importantly almost free of Mosquitos! The best parts about the resort include: - very friendly... More

We arrived at the property after a long mini-bus ride from Khoa Sok. We were checked in quickly and grabbed a quick bite to eat. The food was okay but my enchiladas were spicy. We knew when we booked the room that it was a bungalow and did not have A/C. Since we are from Texas and we camp often,... More

Hello Shannon H, Thanks for submitting your review. We appreciate your input. Because we refer to multiple room types as bungalows, I wanted to provide some clarification for the readers. The bungalow being referred to in this review is specifically our 'Garden Bungalow' room type. We have 3 of these units on the property. The Garden Bungalow is fan only... More

We were in Lanta Castaway by the end of March. We choose this resort because of its excellent ratings and "Dive & Relax" Padi 5* Dive Center which is also located within the resort. We booked the tropical daze room/bungalow which matched the description which can be found on the website. The room is spacious and fit our needs more... More

After traveling 4,5 months, we wanted to have only some quiet time on the beach and read a book. It was exactly what we needed. The beach was nice, the restaurant had for a resort really reasonable prices and most importantly the food was great. In the bar there was happy hour for the amazing cocktails. As extra there was...

Lanta Castaway is a home away from home. Nah, Bank, Dodo, Tu, and friends are all very hard workers and amazing people!! The Mai Thai cocktails are the best! The landscaping is nice, the bungalows are great, the massage girls are always laughing, and the beach is two steps away. This is my first trip advisor review and I'm glad... More

This was our forth visit to Castaway, so what can you say about a destination you have been to 4 times. We have been traveling to Asia now for 15 years & Thailand in particular, wonderful people & a wonderful country, they put lots of effort into building some wonderful buildings but unfortunately that's where it normally ends, maintenance &...

This resort is a beautiful landscaped oasis with lots of greenery and shaded trees around the bungalows. There are many sizes of bungalows. Ours was very airy, beautifully decorated and had a shaded porch to sit and enjoy the atmosphere, (read) as well as a backdoor sitting area. The beach is sandy and shallow at low tide. Great for awimming... More
