I'd met so many people whilst in South east Asia who have recommended the castaways tour to me and at first I thought it was expensive to spend in one go but I would go again in a heartbeat, it's so worth the money! So much so that I extended my trip there twice because I didn't want to leave.... More

Went to Castaway Island on Christmas Day with an unusually small tour but the crew made up for it. Great party, even with our small group, and the crew were super friendly, super helpful and just great to be around. Even thinking about going back when I return to Vietnam next month. Thanks for the great time Erin, Vick, Rosie... More

9 Irish guys, copious amounts of booze and a tranquil location. What more would you want? Rory our 'guide' was brilliant. To be honest the whole 3 days is a complete blur as I spent most of it highly intoxicated. The most important thing is that everyone seemed to be on the same level and super friendly! The only issue... More

I had such a good time on Castaway. Much better than expected to be honest. I had a wonderful group of people and the weather was perfect. Kayaking was brilliant and the booze cruise was fun and also scenically stunning. Only downside is I left my wallet on the island and it was a massive hassle to get back. I... More

This was without a doubt one of the highlights of my trip. If you're looking for an awesome party in a beautiful part of the world then this is the one. The staff were very professional and very good at getting people into the mood. However at all times conscious of safety and the welfare of the group. Which I... More

Beautiful views, beautiful people and stacks of fun. What more could you want? Drinking games were well organised and nobody was forceful which was great to see. We got to chill and learn about the local culture as well as party. Kayaking was wicked, the food was lovely too but it was the staff that truly made everyone's stay -... More

I had an awesome time away on this party getaway! We sailed away with an absolutely amazing crew, and had the best time dancing, drinking and sharing stories. The Island itself was mind blowing, just a small strip of sand surrounded by cliff faces, with a view out to the water and all its beautiful rocks. The day 2 booze... More
