We stayed 5 nights in the beachfront bungalow. We absolutely loved it. The room is very nice, clean, good air conditioning and a great view from our front window. It was really nice sitting on the verandah and there was always a nice breeze. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast isn't... More

We stayed a week at Lanta Castaway. The rooms are clean and ok, but not great. As in mostly all hotels in Thailand the aircondition is too noisy. The staff is friendly but speeks poorly english. The food was ok, but not more. Their speciality are TexMex dishes, so we tried fajitas once. It was just shallow, the guacamole even... More

We just returned from a great trip to Lanta. We stayed at Castaway for 3 nights with our 2 children (ages 5 & 7) in a two bedroom bungalow. The bungalow was spotless with great aircon, wifi and tvs in both rooms. It's so nice to find bungalows with 2 bedrooms so you don't have to sit in the dark... More

We stayed at Castaway for a week, beginning of April. We loved the feel of the place, beautiful garden even more beautiful beach and very friendly and efficient staff. The bonus, is that you have the Padi dive shop in the hotel, so very convenient for divers. good value for money overall, we would stay there again any time.

I know I'm another person raving about Castaway but there was nothing to criticize. Good clean accommodation, GREAT Fun, excellent vibe and fabulous beach set up. My husband and I stayed 2 nights and 3 days and were sad to leave. We stayed in the Sea view rooms, which had 2 queen beds and satellite TV (with english channels) and... More

A good no nonsense 3-4 star resort at a great location with a wonderful beach. Rooms were fine and clean. Food was ok, cocktails super ! Service was quality and the dive shop was really good fun with highly qualified and happy dive instructors, who guided us to a whale shark :-).

Hands down one of the best places I've ever stayed. The rooms are incredibly clean and comfortable (daily maid service is included), the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the location can't be beat. The bungalows (both ac and fan) are a good size; the fan rooms were very breezy and come with a mosquito net. They provide shampoo,... More

We stayed here for one week in April and from what I seen on Koh Lanta this is maybe the best hotel in its price range. Friendly staff, cool bartenders and nice prices. Reason why I dont give it 5 star rating is that I think the bathroom (hot-cold system) needs an upgrade. If I come back to this island,... More
