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

Spent a fabulous few days here. It's in a great location being close to shops and restaurants but also on a nice part of the beach. Just spending the evenings in the bar supping the best cocktails watching the sun going down was utter bliss. We also rented some scooters from them which was hassle free and a great way... More

We joked that we had to try and think of possible bad things about this place because we have nothing but GOOD! Staff was excellent! Honestly, everything was (food, cleanliness, location, value). If you are a couple and don't mind a bit of a "less nicer" room, I would suggest the cheapest hut rooms, no AC but it didn't bother... More

This is our second time to Castaway and it was even more amazing than last year. Darin and Nit have created a little paradise in Koh Lanta and have the most amazing staff team. We stayed in a tropical daze bungalow, it's spacious, comfy and very clean. The beach is beautiful and the water is perfect. The food in the... More

This is our fourth time staying at Castaway, and we just love this resort. It's a small resort with about 23 rooms of different size. We stayed in the Beachcomber bungalow for 3 weeks. The bungalow is spacious and cozy, and has balcony with seaview. Only steps away from the beach where you can find umbrellas and sun-chairs. There are... More

We always rely on tripadvisor and yet again it didn't let us down. This place is a little jewel, we loved everything about it. From the rooms and grounds to the food and staff, it was amazing and stands out in our minds from our 3 weeks in Thailand. Luckily we decided to stay 8 nights here this was the... More
