      Reason for relaxing traveller”

      No Wi-Fi No TV/Aircon but still got Fan and electric plug to charge your phone. The bed not really comfy but easy to clean up, I was go there in rainy season so the weather is quite cool at night. They have a lot of house, I choose the one nearest to the beach (5 steps to the beach) That was perfect. The lobby is very nice, the staff also. Recommended.

      Beautiful bungalows ”

      The bungalows are really nice and have two floors (depending on the category you book). They are clean and comfortable and very well designed. The food in the restaurant is so good. The resort is right on the beach which is really nice. Everybody is really nice. Their will to make this an eco resort should’ve been even better if they would’ve given the possibility for free water refills. Water refills here are soooo expensive. That’s sad. The rest was great.

      Great place... but not for everyone”

      I love everything about Castaway but the sleeping facilities. We were staying in the family bungalow (in the garden) which is not well suited for young children: rooms are on two different floors and you need to keep the doors of each room closed if you don't want to get litterally eaten but the bugs. No air conditioning but super powered fans (which means you don't hear the kids downstairs), which don't cool much. We thought the nights would be cooler but not in this bungalow. It was soooo hot during the night that we took several showers to help cool down. Unfortunately, we left after one night :( but came back to hang out!

      Lovely hotel on an amazing beach”

      Really enjoyed my stay here, the staff were lovely, restaurant served great food, the hotel was located on the stunning beach and the rooms were very clean. The only negative is the rooms get very warm throughout the night and the fan isn’t great in the room. Apart from that, I would highly recommend.

      Friendly and Helpful”

      Staffs were very friendly and helpful. They always smile, patient and responsive to questions. The food quality of the restaurant was very good and reasonable in price. We would like to express our gratitude to the staffs (sorry we forgot to ask their names). We were waiting at the jetty for the boat back to Langkawi and in the last moment, we found out that my wife's sunglasses was left at the hammock outside our room. We called to the hotel and then the staff delivered the sunglasses to the jetty in 15 minutes. We had sufficient time to check in the custom and boarded to the boat! Thank you so much! Really impressive!!

      Pure Paradise, highly recommend!”

      We throughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Castaway only problem was it wasn’t long enough!! All Staff are super helpful and friendly. The accomodation is right on Sunrise beach which is has far less tourists than nearby Pattaya beach. There is So much character in these beautiful beach huts which we absolutely loved. If you want air conditioning or don’t like mosquitoes then basically don’t stay in Koh Lipe island. Breakfast selection was fantastic too and such great value for money. Thank you. This resort is excellent we loved our stay here we will be back!!

      Excellent”

      Of course this beach bungalow place is nothing shy of epic. But if I were to be critical having only fans in the heat and humidity can sometimes account for a rough nights sleep. My biggest issue were the prices. I get it, it's an island, but $3US dollars for a 12oz beer? They would sell triple the beer sales and avoid people going to 7-11 to buy there beer if prices were reasonaable prices. Other than that this place is magical:)

      Excellent and amazing staff”

      I've never seen staff that are so friendly and welcoming, and always smiling. They were so patient with me while I was feeling sick in this hotel. The only thing is there are zero facilities in this place, including air con and extremely limited wifi. I get that they are being Eco-conscious but that makes the rooms unbearable when it is very hot. It means that you need to be ok to be on the beach all day and outside the resort most of the night. But it's a budget place, so you get what you pay for :)

      Bedbugs”

      As a couple who have been traveling across Asia for a few months we were a bit disappointed by the way we were treated following a bed bugs incident (if I could attach the photo, I would - I have bumps from my fingers to my elbows...) We reported bed bugs one morning and were met with an inspection of the mattress we were sleeping on... fine. What followed was a backlash of disbelief on the management’s side telling us at one point that “maybe we had brought them with us”. I can assure you from the state of the mattress the eggs had been there longer than us! We were moved to another hut but nothing else. No compensation, nothing. Not even I beer on the house! Honestly if it wasn’t for a lovely French bloke who was part of the management team, I would be tempted to write a worse review. Saying this the location is great and a decent menu if not slightly overpriced.. Wouldn’t stay again

      Rooms are spacious and clean. Fans and No A/c so can be a bit warm. We had unit in the garden which had a bit of night noise from cats, dogs and chickens. Restaurant and bar by the beach are great and food is good. All staff very helpful.

      Beautiful property in a beautiful location”

      Castaway is a beautiful place to stay: the rooms are charming, built and decorated with a lot of taste. The restaurant serves very varied and quality food. Be careful though: a part of it is just next to a beach bar that can put loud music at night, so make sure your room is on the other side. Also, there is no aircon, and it can get really really warm in Koh Lipe - we had a really hard time sleeping the 2 night. 1 fan is clearly not enough.

      Cutest bangalow overlooking beautiful beach ”

      The front sea bangalows are really a treasure. Opening your window and having this unique view over sunrise beach was one of the highlight of the trip :) you can also chill and read on the hammock. The location is right in the middle of sunrise beach and quite close to walking street. The bar/ restaurant also offers good breakfast options. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I Definitely recommend this place!

      I really enjoy staying in castaway hotel because of the uniqueness, its a 2 floors hotel, downstairs is a bathroom and upstairs is a bedroom. This hotel also close to the walking street, and has their own street with a nice lamp to go to walking street. We can see the beach especially during sunrise it’s so beautiful. There’s a bar near by the hotel too to chill and hangout. The staff also nice and they can speak English really well.

      Castaway was the perfect location for a great price. However, the WiFi was non existent. I enjoyed that "issue" on most days which is why I rate this place 5 out of 5 stars because everything else far exceeded my expectations.

      We loved this hotel. The design is nice and artsy with recycled wood and beautiful Thai fabrics. The bungalow was very romantic and chill with a view of the ocean. As a new couple the toilet situation wasn't ideal as there's no door (and only cold water), but it's fine. We will definitely go back again!
