You might not find this gem easilly, (it didn't feature in my lonley planet guide) but when you do, you won't look back. What an awesome place to spend a week relaxing!
I stayed in a cool little garden bugnalow, which had everything it needed and also spent a night or two in a deluxe room which to be honest is simply luxurious... Whatever your budget or preference you've got options to suit.
I'm sure you can read other reveiws below telling you how friendly and helpful the staff were, that should always go without saying but I'd like to illustrate... Wilst staying there a friend of ours was unfortunatley involved in a moped accident badly injuring herself. The Lanta Castaway staff were amazing, you could not find a more accomadating, helpfull and understanding group of people. Each one of them went above an beyond to make sure they did what they could to help out, including driving us to the hospital for checkups and helping us change travel plans. Trust me, you're in safe hands here should the worst happen.
Also a great place to base yourself if you want to learn to dive / go on dives. Their onsite dive centre, Dive and Relax, can't be beaten. The Instructor was so friendly and patient, (fun too) and made us feel like pro divers the minute we got kitted up.
From the lodging to the food, to the drinks, to the atmosphere expectations are well and trully exceeded. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax. I'm definitely going back if i get the chance!
