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

We spent a week here staying in a Tropical Daze room which is half of a large bungalow with an adjoining door, presumably so families can book both rooms and have the door open. With the door closed though there were no problems hearing our neighbours. The resort is beautiful with plants and flowers everywhere and the restaurant/beach bar area... More

After staying to a terrible hotel, we stayed at lanta castaway for 1 night (already visited the beach, bar-restaurant of the hotel) very nice rooms, clean and modern, very good breakfast and dinner, easy access to the beach of the south end of Long beach, far from the "noisy" area of bars, however rooms closer to the main street might...

This is a great place to stay while on Ko Lanta. We could only stay here half of our trip due to the rooms being booked but I wish we could of stayed here the whole time. We spent a day looking for a place to stay for the rest of our trip that was as nice as this one... More

We stayed in a tropical daze bungalow with our family. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The resort is very pretty and has some well kept gardens. Situated at the end of long beach in a quiet area but only a short taxi ride to the main town and shopping area. We ate at the restaurant and both the... More
