Second year on Koh Lanta and at this wonderful resort. The location, comfort and staff are the best we've experienced anywhere in Thailand. The restaurant is excellent with a wide choice of traditional Thai food and, to our delight, a good selection of fresh seafood for the grill every night. Can't say enough about the friendly and helpful staff and...

Unfortunately we had only planned 3 days at Koh Lanta. The plan was to check out the island. But we never left the resort. This is a resort where they have thought of EVERYTHING. It is well maintained, wonderful garden, very nice bungalows in high quality equipped with all you need - just bring your toothbrush and clean underwear! You...

This is the 3rd year in Koh Lanta but the first time at Lanta Castaway. When we were there last time we went round many hotels and accommodation as we were not happy with where we previously stayed. We found the Castaway at the end of the beach and thought it looked great we walked around and found the whole...

We stayed at Lanta castaway with 2 families. The rooms are basic but clean, air conditioned and neat. None are ocean-facing as they lead back from the dining/beach area which takes up the beachfront location of the hotel, but it's a small resort and everything is easily accessible. The hotel is positioned near the end of the beach so although...

Lanta Castaway was perfect for our four nights in Koh Lanta. Even though our bungalow was one of the furthest from the sea, it was still only a short stroll (less than a minute!) to the beach, restaurant and bar. We found it spacious, comfortable and spotless - without a doubt the nicest accommodation we stayed out during our trip...

First of all, I'm sorry Joe for taking so long to post this review - we were there for my 31st birthday at the end of November/beginning of December. The staff there, especially the manager, Joe, is awesome. They really went out of their way to make us feel like family. Every night they were hanging by the bar, cracking...

We stayed her for five nights (actually we extended our stay for another two nights.) Lanta castaway is amazing place. It's nice and quiet. Bungalows are just few meters from beach. You can lay down at sun deck with mattress and loungers. There is bar opened serving chill cocktails and great food. You can choose from Thai and international. Also...

The staff is super friendly and will willingly show you where things are, how to get to places, recommend things to do, etc. the environment is very quiet and...

We loved our 10 day stay at Lanta Castaway, a small and very chilled place. We had a Cosy Casa bungalow for the majority of our time, which was perfect. All rooms are set amongst lush tropical plants, lovingly tended to by the gardeners. As the other reviews have said, the room was spotlessly cleaned everyday, the bed super comfy,...

The BF and I stayed here 6-10 January. We arrived by ferry from Ao Nang. A short journey from the pier and we were in Lanta Castaway paradise. We already knew from the short walk through the grounds to reception that was place was going to be a favourite. The gardens surrounding each of the bungalows is very impressive and...
