We came to this resort based on the good reviews and were not disappointed. The rooms are beautiful, so clean and pleasant. The resort itself is lovely. We loved the restaurant and the beach side bar, with the amazing cocktails. Staff was super nice, everyone, especially Joe who took such good care of us and helped with everything we needed,...

Where do we start? We came here after seeing the great reviews and were not disappointed... The Resort - clean and relaxing. The bungalows are absolutely stunning with big beds, excellent air conditioning and a clean and homely feel. The restaurant - brilliant, a great range of Western, Thai and Mexican food. We didn't have a single bad meal. Portions... More

Stayed here three nights. Got picked up from the ferry and taken to the hotel. Resort was beautiful. Room was very clean and very cozy. Rain and windy conditions made me wish for a pool, as it was to rough to go in the ocean but that is what you get during rainy season. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant... More

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!

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
