This was our first trip to Thailand and to the beautiful island of Ko Lanta. We found this charming resort because of the great reviews on TA. I was a little worried about not having a pool, but the reality is, who needs it when you're beside the beautiful ocean! We simply loved every minute of our stay here. Our... More

From the on-site scuba provider, to the exceptional staff, to the accommodations (bungalows), an overall great experience. Plenty to do near the resort if you want to explore - we did scuba diving, and motorbikes around the island. But, if you don't want to leave Lanta Castaway, there is no need. Great food (especially the Tex-Mex!), nice lounges on the... More

Here, you can't ask for anything more, you feel so welcome, while taking the first step into a gourgeous garden, nice and very wellkept surrondings, clean and spacious bungalows, the best food...

We stayed early season in November 2014. We arrived into a 3 day storm so unfortunately missed the great sunsets. The facilities were fantastic. Only thing missing was a pool but with the beach metres away its not a problem. The food was amazing- every meal we had. The bar staff made our stay. Non intrusive and really helpful and... More

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
