We stayed at Lanta Castaway for 3 nights just before Christmas. The resort is beautiful, quaint and well located. The staff here has been among the friendliest we have met along our Thai adventure. The food has also been among the best and is very affordable. We appreciated the pride shown in the immaculate grounds and the resort was very clean.
We stayed in one of the simple garden bungalows without a/c to have a true Thai experience. It was small but worked well for us. Hope to be back again sometime.
