We really enjoyed our stay here. Stayed in a bungalow in a beautiful setting. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Sun beds on the beach were comfortable. Good happy hour at the beach bar. Would recommend.

We stayed at Lanta Castaway over Christmas and New Year 2019/20. We are a family of 4 with our kids being 6 and 10, and this resort was simply perfect. We stayed in a 'Tropical Daze Bungalow' which is essentially 2 rooms joined together. The kids were in one room and my wife and I in the other. Rooms are basic, but very clean and comfortable. There are so many positives to this resort, I don't really know where to start: The staff - possibly the best bit of staying here. All so so friendly, smiley, and kind to our children. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Upkeep of the resort - this is not a luxurious resort, but so much time and effort was spent making it look beautifully tidy and clean all the time. The food and drink - wow. A very varied menu, including Thai, various 'western' dishes, and a Tex-Mex menu. PLUS a weekly Texas BBQ courtesy of hotel manager Joe and this was unbelievably good. Our kids can be quite fussy eaters but there was always something for them. My wife and I loved the Thai food though - always so fresh and delicious. Bar - delicious cocktails, beers, wine and soft drinks served anywhere around their outside area. Ordering a cocktail while laid on one of their sunlounger-beds and watching the sun set over the sea was possibly the highlight of my holiday. Location - right on the beautiful Long Beach. We were there at the peak time of year and yet still the beach didn't seem 'busy'. The only small downside was the lack of pool, but you were able to (pay and) use the pool at the property next door. In short, this resort was simply perfect for what we wanted and we are looking to go back again.

We stayed for 6 nights in late february in a cosy casa bungalow. The resort is beautifully laid out kept and incredibly clean and tidy. The bungalow was ideal for our stay and had everything we needed though we did find the beds a little hard. It is a short walk to the beach where there are plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas and shade from the trees. The sea is clear and warm and at low tide you get plenty of exercise walking out it. The staff at lanta castaway are delightful and we were always greeted with warmth and a smile. Ray in the office organised a to visit to old lanta town and transfer to our next island. Thank you. The breakfast is extensive and any number of items can be ordered from the menu , all included in the b and b rate. Amazing. The food was delicious both in the morning and for a main meal in the evening. The cost of the dishes was less than that in other restaurants and of far better quality. Where else can you go and have a cup of coffee on the beach, early morning swim, then breakfast by the beach and spend the rest of the day people and boat watching, walking and end with a massage and a tasty meal. Wonderful!

Why would anyone stay anywhere for 8 weeks, we have now both retired & have the time, so why would you not go back to a place where you are treated like friends, where the staff, manager & owners have become friends Where we meet friends from around the world who we met from our & their many trips to Castaway, to the cleanest & best looked after resort in Thailand, with the best onsite resturant & beach bar, the food is great all cooked fresh & served with a smile to your table next to the beautiful beach with the best cocktails This year we had 8 weeks of sun whilst you had 8 weeks of rain & cold in the UK I think you are probably now realising why we keep returning, why our friends keep returning from around the world, why we meet up once a year, for us & them, in paradise Read the many other reviews on here, read Castaways own web page, book direct for discounts, the longer you stay the more discount you get I am not going into detail about the resort, i dont have to it is all out there for you to read, do your homework, you wont be dissapointed I will finish this review by saying thank you to all the staff, owners & manager for what was another memorable vacation "thank you" we love you all xx P.S: See you January 2021, yes we have already booked
