We returned to Lanta Castaway for a second year, as we had such an enjoyable experience last year. The grounds are lush with vegetation and well manicured. This gives the essence of peace and privacy to the resort. We stayed in a single bungalow off the main pathway. There are also double bungalows for large families. We had 2 queen... More

A family run beach front resort, literally on the beach and yards away from the clear blue warm waters of the sea. If you could close your eyes and imagine an idyllic Castaway beach location this would be it. We stayed for 12 nights and quickly kicked back and became beach bums. It's a simple recipe consisting of alternating between... More

This property is located at the end of long beach and has lovely cottages throughout. There are beach beds / lounges to sit and relax, the restaurant has good food and great service. There... More

My wife and I visited in early January. The grounds are well kept, the room we had was perfect and sitting right on the beach. A feature that makes Lanta Castaway different than other resorts is their Tex-Mex menu in the restaurant. I have tried Tex-Mex all over the world and really not found a restaurant that really made good... More

Beautiful spot on the beach, great staff, great beach front bar/restaurant for sunset viewing, great breakfast,comfortable beds.and nice bungalows, beautiful grounds, good wifi.., nice porch for sitting .we loved it here. Blackout blinds would make it perfect, but a small thing. The beach is great for walking.

Nice spot right on the beach with breakfast included and a beach bar and restaurant on site. Great Tex Mex food if you get tired of local food. Dive shop on site for snorkeling or dive trips. Kayaks available for use of hotel guests. They have great little air conditioned bungalows and also small cheaper units that I don't believe... More

I don't think I will be able to express how wonderful this hotel was and how great our stay turned out. I will start with the staff. Every person of the staff was friendly and welcoming and always willing to help. Wee and Nah are the receptionists and speak great English. They were very helpful in checking us in and... More
