We love the design of the bungalow, all wooden, spartan but elegance and cosy. Rooms are very clean. The beach is very nice. We can also walk to the village street to get local Malay halal food. This resort is popular with westerner so there is plenty of dogs. The staff are very helpful to help with further travel arrangement.

Recommended by friends, so had high expectations. Room was nothing special. I know it's high season, but I think the room is way overpriced for what you get. Was scratching all over for 2 nights, even though we had bed net. As for the restaurant, great food but small portions. Was disappointed by happy hour cocktails, as they were watered...

I was afraid about no AC but the fan did just fine and we had very good sleep under the mosquito net which stops mosquitos very well;) Restaurant is very nice a comfortable and we spent whole day...

Its my girlfriend and I booked this hotel for 3 nights, we are overall satisfied but we wouldn't go back.

The restaurant make delicious food but unfortunately the service given its...

Had such an incredible 5 night stay at castaway. Great manager Jeremy who was helpful and directed us to various different spots on the island to enjoy. Love the vibe of the tanning and common area- feels as if you are in a comfortable living room. Beautiful sunset views from the beach and very clean and comfortable rooms. Would be...

Let me say up front that this would have been a 5 star rating had the mosquitos not been this present a pest and had the bungalow facilities worked a little better. The restaurant/bar/library/reception area is really really cozy and have the coolest most relaxed and laid-back atmosphere. Lounge music is playing day long and there is a lot of...

We stayed 2 nights in the castaway resort on our Island Hopping in the Andaman Sea. It was one of the most expensive resorts which we booked, because the bungalows looked so nice. Don't understand me wrong. It is perfectly located at the beach, the resort is very comfortable, the staff is so friendly and the bungalows are nice looking....

Great resort, delicious food, cozy atmosphere and a very good diving center. I concentrated on diving, so my dive instructor Pieter was a very competent and smart guy, knows all about the underwater world. I'll come back.!

I have stayed at Castaway before and very happy to come back because it still has that magic ambiance which I liked so much. And I am not alone in this feeling - it is not high season yet and many resorts are almost empty on the island, but Castaway is full! I wish them good luck for many years...
