Finally! A place one can call home on Ko Lanta! This is what a bungalow should be. Great landscaping, a nice little beach bar with free popcorn, cushions on the lounge chairs, and most importantly, a decent bed that wasn't too firm. Still had tough too high pillows, but hey, I'll take it. Nice curtains, soaps and shampoos as well....

The pros: Prices (accommodation and food) are OK. The PADI diving center is very welcoming and professional - probably the best reason to stay at the resort. The cons: The bungalows are very closely spaced and bit small. However, the team does a great cleaning job! The interior and furnishing is practical and the a/c worked well. The food is...

My wife, friends and I stayed here for 3 weeks after much research and weren't disappointed. All the staff were friendly and did their best to make our stay enjoyable. The beach and sea here is beautiful though on certain days there were issues with the sun loungers, this was in the main due to inconsiderate guests reserving beds both...

This resort is perfect for the travellers looking for a little downtime after a busy time elsewhere. The bungalows are not spacious but they are clean modern and well air conditioned. The patronage was mixed relaxed and well behaved. The food was fairly priced and good. Love the mixed American / Thai theme. The Thai food is the clear winner...

This a great place if you want to chill out! Very relaxed atmosphere and great bungalows. We stayed in D2 which was an airconditioned bungalow. very clean and well presented. The sunbeds were great and plenty to go round. The only downside was the breakfast staff. They were not really that interested in the customers as they were too busy...

We stayed here for five nights on the last leg of our trip, previously visiting Chiang Mai and Siem Reap. We just wanted to chill for five days after climbing Temples in Cambodia.

We stayed at Castaway as part of our Thai Island hopping trip. After 5nts we didnt want to leave. Castaway has everything on site and is small enough to be personable and caring.

We came to stay at Castaway having already stayed on Lanta before a couple of years ago. We chose Castaway based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we were delighted. The resort is beautifully kept and extremely well located at the quietest, most picturesque end of Long Beach. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was excellent....
