Lanta Castaway continues to be the complete package resort. The bungalows offer great comfort with king size beds and plenty of space, air conditioning and the beautiful landscaping offers great curb appeal. The proximity to the beach is a major plus as well. The resort has its own bar with day beds and beach chairs right on the beach. So...

We enjoyed the Castaway and thought it a great location with attentive staff. The dive and relax dive operation is on site with the boats leaving from the beach outside. There seems a high ratio of staff to residents and I can't praise them enough for their attention and competence. There is no road noise yet you can wander out...

Our stay nr.6 at Castaway, and next year is already booked. We just love this small resort. Nice and clean bungalows, and for sure the best staf. We miss spending time with you at the bar. You are the reason why we are coming back every year. So thank you all, for making our holiday perfect. See you next year.

From our pick up by Joe at the ferry terminal to our departure this was the best stop on our 3 week trip across Thailand. We spent 6 nights in this piece of paradise. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, always with a smile on their faces, as clearly they enjoy their jobs. The cottages are super clean, and...

We stayed 4 weeks at Castaway resort and like we already experienced last year, this is a great place. The bungalows are nice and clean, the garden is beautiful and the service fantastic. This is a small resort but you find everything you need inside the “walls”. You have a nice beach (also on low tide), enough of sunbeds, massage,...

Second year on Koh Lanta and at this wonderful resort. The location, comfort and staff are the best we've experienced anywhere in Thailand. The restaurant is excellent with a wide choice of traditional Thai food and, to our delight, a good selection of fresh seafood for the grill every night. Can't say enough about the friendly and helpful staff and...
