I dislike writing great reviews because they invariably cause me future problems: higher prices, more crowds, sold-out signs, and all the other problems associated the massive influence of TA these days. Nevertheless, when one is due, it is only fair. And one is due for this place. We booked from an online site as it was the same price as... More

Nice resort, only thing we missed was nice weather... Friendly staff and good food. Only thing missing perhaps is a swimming pool. Resort is perfect and unique part of this resort is that all details of building etc. are good and instructions + menu are in proper English

Castaway is a well managed and pleasant resort, though 'resort' is not quite accurate (it does not have a pool, for example). Its a relaxing and laid back place, where you can have a drink or two while watching the glorious sunsets at the beach bar, and have your dinner at the same table without having to move to the...

The hotel is really closed to the beach and the beach is clean (not like everywhere on the island). 3 types of bungalows, we took the middle one with A/C, it's very clean. One little problem is that even if the personnel is really competent, they are not really helpfull if you need a taxi or to help you with... More

This resort is awesome! We have stayed on Lanta a few times and this place is the best, hands down! We stayed in a Seabreeze Bungalow which is right near the restaurant but not noisy at all. The food at this resort is excellent and the 2 for 1 cocktails in the even are an absolute MUST! The bar staff... More

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

If we could.. we would like to keep this fantastic place a secret.. but we think, everyone should have that pleasure, visiting and Falling in love with it. 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...
