We went with a group of families and couples and everyone had a blast. From check in to check out the service is fantastic and you feel very welcome every minute of every day.. we travelled in an group and with our baby and Toddler we were all treated so well and everyone had such a good time.. Ben at the water sports went over and above everyday with general watercraft hire and organising specials boat tours to cloud 9 and various other hidden spots (along with atu they kept as safe on the boat each time and really looked out for us); Dave at the pool bar was an absolute legend and was the best pool bar; definitely recommend his espresso martini as they was the best I’ve ever had , I’d go back just for that. The Nanny’s (we had Seini) were so good and we were so happy for some help a few nights to put kids to bed whilst we had dinner with the rest of our group, and we were so comfortable each time we used her. Elenoa and Emori at the restaurant was so accommodating and made sure our group of 10 adults and 5 kids always had somewhere to sit, and made sure the kids were entertained and happy. Thanks all castaway team for an unforgettable experience. Can’t wait to return one day.

From the moment the boat landed we were treated like family! A group of 10 adults, 4 children and 1 infant and we all had a ball... the food was great, the drinks were fantastic (big thank you for Dave at the pool for many hangovers caused), the kids club and nannies just what was needed, the rooms and location top quality, and of course the people absolutely perfect! Big shout out to Ben, who helped with surf trips, private boat tours and just being a top bloke. Vinaka and see you all soon.

Beautiful island, great amenities and activities. We were a couple with other friends with kids and felt like it was the perfect spot for both. Special shout out to Dave at the pool bar. So hospitable and brilliant bartender with top class cocktails. Highly recommend.

This was our 6th trip to Castaway and this trip was just as memorable.  As always, the team there are amazing, fun, friendly and so helpful. Our bure (no 6) was sparkling clean and just a few steps to the beach. We did multiple scuba dives and found the fish life and coral were looking pretty good. The dive and boat team were detailed and knowledgeable on each of the trips, and our dive gear was well maintained.  We spent lots of time at the Sundowner bar which has a relaxed vibe, good music, great cocktails and pizzas. Cant wait to head back again!

We had an incredible time at castaway and highly recommend for great food, incredible company, activities and relaxation. We loved the warm welcome by all the staff singing on arrival. We especially loved Dave’s cocktails at the adults only pool - he’s a master at frozen margaritas and strawberry daiquiris. Snorkeling off the beach, sailing, stand up paddle boarding all included in our stay - we will be coming back every year!! Staff all so friendly and warm. Highly recommend.

Our family of 4 stayed for 6 nights and had a wonderful experience. Activities for teenagers meant that our 12 year old made new friends and was entertained without the help of devices, which you couldn't use anyway as no wifi in rooms and patchy in other areas and it was great to put all devices away and focus on each other. Staff were amazing from the welcome to the hugs goodbye and everything in between. We did lots of activities from snorkelling to island hopping boat cruise, paddleboarding, kayaking, all non motor activities included. The sunsets are some of the best I have seen anywhere and sitting up on the sundowner deck with my husband and a cocktail while watching the kids play beach volleyball each night was pure happiness. Thanks to Semi, Ben and all the staff for such a special holiday.

I recently stayed 6 nights with my friends. We are a group of 6 ladies and we had an absolutely fantastic time. All the staff here are great, the food was nice and the drinks were not over the top expensive. The Band entertained us every night and had us dancing! We went on the Sunset champagne cruise and loved it.. for us that was ticking off water sports but there was plenty of other activities on offer. I have nothing but positive feedback for our stay here and all the staff should be congratulated on their attitude and friendliness and go out of their way to make sure your stay on Castaway is fabulous

Beautiful island with endless activities to do, all the staff were so friendly. Special shout out to Ben from water sports who went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time surfing/snorkelling/fishing. Also to Simi who made the best Pina Coladas on the island.

My family (including two kids 9 & 12) vacationed at Castaway. The staff was incredible pleasant to interact with. The kids enjoyed the organized activities and met a number of other children on the trip. The water actives were great including a day trip to Cloud Break and Cloud 9. The scenery is beautiful and island is the right size for not being too crowded. Definitely recommend a vacation to Castaway.
