First time I was in Castaway, 3 years ago, was a nice moment. At that time, no boat in front of the beach, still a nice beach, friendly staff. Since then, a lot of new hotels oppened just near by and The Castaway have not made any improvement to stay at the top... Still no hot water in the rooms,...

If you are booking a bungalow, you should know what to expect. It's not a hotel room. It's basic, but comfortable. Maybe hard for some people to get used to a curtain for a bathroom door. The main bar/restaurant area has a nice chilled vibe but it is a family friendly resort, so be ready for some kids running around....

The jungle type resort is located by the beach (sunrise beach) but not every bungalow has a beach front view. As soon as you walked into a bungalow, you'll see a sort of an open bathroom (where there's no door between bathroom and stairs to the bedroom hall-hence you can totally hear every sound and experience every odor from the...

Castaway has by far the best vibe on the island. The communal deck library reception bar restaurant sit'n'relax area is ideal. The beach area in front is very narrow due to recent erosion but there is plenty of deck area to sit and take in the view. Probably not a good choice for those wanting creature comforts eg no hot...

They also booked us our trip to KL for a very good price. The bungalows are directly at the sunrise beach where we enjoyed the...

Booked last minute as a side trip from Langkawi & unfortunately our 3 days there coincided with the recent storm so it was wet, wet, wet! The resort which is very 'Robinson Crusoe' has a great setting - right on the beach, sunrise side & as most others on Koh Lipe, geared up for the divers. Alternative activities are Yoga...

We loved it here. The resort is fantastic, utterly relaxing. Most of my days were spent reading on the hammock taking in wonderful sea views - pure r and r. The rooms are great - basic but with lovely touches and very clean. Great cocktails, fab happy hour and the food equally as delicious. Lovely staff. We'll definitely be back....

We spent 5 nights at this resort over this Christmas in the big garden breezy room, the overall settings were thoughtful and I can see that they tried to offer the all out island experience with wooden huts and basic facilities which we appreciate. Their receptions were efficient and had very tasty food in the restaurant. However, we were given...
