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

We stayed here for 5 nights in January in one of the garden bungalows and we loved it. The bungalow was clean, really well equipped and cosy. We loved all the little touches and the boutique feel it had. The resturant and bar was gorgeous, right on the beach with stunning sunset views. The food was amazing. And the cocktails... More

This is one of the best place we stayed in in our 2 years travelling! It is a bit over our budget, but for what they offer is a very good deal. We stayed in one of the 3 cheapest bungalows, which, by the way, are the most beautiful they have. Big enough, with a terrace, big bed, 2 fans... More

Our 2nd stay here and once again enjoyed the experience. My only gripe is there are only 4 salas so if you don't get down to the beach before 7.00 you won't get one which isn't ideal. Great spot to watch the sunsets over a cocktail. Good friendly staff and would recommend
