Very happy with our stay at Castaway . We were lucky enough to have the closet bungalow to the beach and were spoilt with the view and the few steps we needed to get onto the beach. The gardens at Castaway were well planned and truly lovely to walk amongst . The food was fantastic . Cooked fresh from a... More

There's a reason why this place has won a 'Best Hotel' award for 5 years running, and based on how they are, many more awards are on their way! We first came across this location based on trip advisor, where the reviews convinced us that it would be a great choice! Boy, was it!! Normally I would book through trip... More

Lanta Castaway was a great place to stay on our visit to Ko Lanta. It was a short Tuk Tuk ride from the pier, and was close to a lot of very good restaurants. The resort itself had really good food, a great view, and nice lounging beds near the bar facing the water (wish there was more of them).... More

As I may have mentioned in other reviews I am very sensitive to how places feel and make me feel, and this is more often about the people than the actual place or setting, here it's both. An easy booking, a rapidly answered mail to set up airport transfers and we were off, and from the smiley greeting from our... More

My wife and I stayed here the last week of April and we loved it. We stayed in one of the Bungalow's with AC. The bungalow was nice and tidy on arrival. The bungalows are enormous inside and very welcoming. The shower makes hot water but with it being the end of April the cool water felt great for us.... More

Stayed here for a week and had a great time. Place is really good value for money and the restaurant is mostly filled every day so there is a great atmosphere. Don't miss out on their fabulous cocktails, even though "Happy Hour" is a bit unhappy. Meaning the discount is not really big. Used the local dive center based at... More
