      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!!

      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 :)

      Great island getaway on the beach”

      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.

      Great price for those seeking to be off the grid!”

      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.

      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.

      Feels pretentious. ”

      I have been here in 2011 and absolutely loved my experience. So I dragged 6 of my family here this year. But I feel now that it’s so pretentious, the staffs were an absolute snob to the locals or the Asians, double standard. So hard to smile even. The place feels like there’s no soul to it. Food that we ordered was mediocre and some was bad :( They need to up their game. Location is the only reason it’s amazing compared to the last time I was there. So frustrating. Maybe they think the locals or Asians doesn’t matter that much - hence the treatment that we received. Good times don’t last. Not coming there again. Hopefully not everybody experienced what we did. Seriously guys. Please treat everyone the same. That’s the least that you guys can do.

      In generali would say one of the best hotels we’ve ever been. Food in the restaurant is pretty great good. Only thing where they can improve from our pointer view is the service in the restaurant. As we sometimes needed to wait very long time to get food, drinks or even just menu.

      Cool and artsy right on the beach”

      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!

      not what i expected but stayed 3 more nights”

      Ok. I was really disappointed. The bungalows are so close to each other that you here the conversation in the next one. Although yes i have a noisy neighbours. So you really can forget about some privacy. The bungalow itself is interesting. on the first floor is the bathroom and toilet with is very good when you came back from the beach. First you take a shower and than you can go to the bedroom. Though I really suggest to Castaway to put some mini shower for foots or something. If your in couple or with kids it get little bit strange to use the toiled though. Second floor is the bedroom with i adore. Great view, great bed. And on the little balcony you can watch the star. on the porch is just so relaxing as on the beach. The location is great. I love the beach and the see. A few minutes and you are on one of the bests spot for snorkelling and after 5 min walk you are on the walking street. As I say booked 3 nights more.

      Lovely beachside cabanas”

      The cabanas are beautifully decorated, many with ocean views. I love the eco-friendly business they are operating, but be sure you are ok with not having A/C and hot water. I stayed here during low season at a reduced rate and still felt the price was a bit high. The resort restaurant serves delicious food with slightly smaller portion sizes than the norm. I really hope they are able to find a solution to the 'noise pollution' from the bar next door - ask for a quiet room if you're sensitive to noise!

      Nice idea, to protect the nature, to collect the rubbish, to use less energy etc. Although would be nice to give it back to us, customers, all the costs the owner does not have because he does not need to buy aircon fridges safe or TV.. For that its quite expensive. But in total very great location. Helpful and realy friendly staff. Well trained in english too.

      Perfect hote for the natural "simple life"”

      The deck at the hotel is a lovely place in the mornings and evenings for drinks and relaxing. The spa is simple but nice. The

      Castaway is as advertised. It is not a luxury hotel, but a very nice Eco-friendly bungalow resort. I highly recommend it for the simple life aspect of it. The food and staff are lovely. The deck is a great place to hang out for breakfast and drinks, and to see all the stars at night. Honestly speaking, there is no need for aircon at night or hot water so don't worry about that. It does get a bit hot in the bungalows during the day but why would you stay in your room during a vacation to an island. As far as Lipe goes, it's one of the nicest resorts on the island. I went and looked at all the resorts on Sunrise beach and Castaway was one of the best despite being at a lower price point. There was basically only one other resort I would have preferred to stay at and it was 4x the price. Normally I only stay at 5 star hotels but I was very balky at Castaway.

      The communal lounge area, location and food

      The only and most important reason I will not stay or recommend anyone to stay at this resort is the fact that the room is only provided with ONE very weak ceiling fan for the sleeping area. For the price, i believe it should at least have air conditioners. Even though I paid 3 nights there I only slept in my room for one night. After turning and tossing for the entire night from the heat I decided to have stay at a different resort for the rest of my holiday. Which is quite a pity. Everything else I LOVED about this resort.
