    Probably the most relaxing place we've ever been”

    staff, location, beachfront, food, drink, relaxation,

    well! we rocked up here at Lanta Castaway resort, just looking for a bed after a 15 hour journey from Langkawi in Malaysia. Not what you'd want to be doing on your 30th birthday! but boy was it worth it all! we had booked for 2 nights initially, and I think we stayed 6, and if I had spent all my three weeks holiday here, I'd have been more than happy. Having persuaded my girlfriend that the journey(3 ferries, taxi, bus, bus, bus,etc....)would be worth it(i didn't know if it would, just heard good things about Lanta), I have to say the look on her face made the holiday when she seen what Lanta Castaway had to offer. Check in was a dream with the friendly smile and a welcome fresh fruit juice, and after a quick shower we went down to the bar for a much needed drink and what we found was way beyond what we could have hoped for. A bar, right on the beach with the sound of the waves and the sun going down, with the nicest staff (Bang and Dodo), and also the owners Nit and Darron. the food was amazing every night. we had breakfast lunch and dinner there most days and we were not disapointed once. Any information we needed was at hand, and it was simple to rent mopeds and hop around the island as we did. As my girlfriend would describe Lanta Castaway: It's such a homely place and you got the feeling that if Nit/Darron seen that you hadn't returned or felt something was wrong, they'd come looking for you! Just a great place for relaxation and chilling, and we will be back for sure, no doubt about that.

    Gorgeous bungalows on the beach!”

    Cheap, beautiful, and relaxing

    We had a garden bungalow for five nights, it was absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't have been happier with Lanta Castaway. Our bungalow was so affordable and just a 20 second walk through beautifully kept gardens to the beach. The beach itself isn't ideal for swimming as it's quite shallow with a few rocks (although still lovely for a quick dip) but it is a stunning place to lay on the loungers and drink coconut shakes. Lanta itself was incredibly quiet as we visited in the middle of low season, so our dining/drinking choices were limited, but in high season I believe there are a few beach bars and restaurants on the same beach which you can wander down to. As it was we got a scooter very cheaply and rode around the entire island to find more beaches and lovely places to eat. Overall we were so happy with Castaway, we recommend the tempura seafood and the pineapple fried rice which they serve in a whole pineapple... Yum!

    Great location, food & diving!”

    Everything you want is right there!

    I really enjoyed my stay at Lanta Castaway. Everything we wanted was right there! The rooms are clean and very spacious. Restaurant serves great food at affordable prices and the cocktail bar on the beach is fantastic with happy hour every night at sunset. The hotel has it's own diving center with extremely professional service. Dives were 1st class and instructors go out with small groups and a private boat. There is no swimming pool, which did not bother us because we were in the ocean the whole time. Another plus for us was that there weren't any families with children at this resort, definately more of a divers retreat which we loved. The Thai staff at the restaurant did not speak much English, but it was not the biggest problem. Menu's are printed in English, so make sure you point out exactly what you want if you don't want to be served a surprise meal ;-) Will definately recommend this resort!

    Great stay in perfect location”

    Right by the beach, clean rooms and great food

    I had a great stay at Lanta Castaway - I was in one of the air-conditioned Garden Bungalows and my family were in one of the smaller rooms with just a fan, but both were very clean and well-maintained. The food was excellent - a little more expensive than many Thai restaurants but they had a great international menu that included delicious Mexican food, a rare find in Thailand. The staff were also very attentive, booking us a bus trip back to Phuket that was far cheaper than what we'd paid to get there. Also, I left my engagement ring in my room and didn't realise until my return to Phuket - when I rang Lanta Castaway, they endeavored to find my ring and post it express to my hotel in Phuket. I was very impressed with the service.

    We LOVED our time at Lanta Castaway. The staff works so hard and are always available to help with booking travel, renting motorbikes, food/drinks, etc. we wish we had stayed longer. The room has great A/C and was the comfiest bed I've had in Thailand. The staff cleans up the beach each afternoon, which isn't the case at all the hotels in the low season. We highly recommend staying here and will be back!

    I really enjoyed my time here was really nice to wach the sunset everynight at the bar with a cocktail. food was excellent, but so was everywere we ate in koh lanta. You really need a motorbike to fully enjoy koh lanta, get a motorbike from down the road though as it much cheaper than the hotel charge. i would recomend staying here but maybe in the better season when the beach has less rubish on. Im told the beach is nicer in high season too but i still enjoyed it during green season and it only rained a couple of times

    We had a great time here, a very clean resort with a relaxing atmosphere. To have a cold Singha in the Bar watching the sunset was priceless. I would definately return here if I go back to Thailand. The rooms were very clean. A great place to start excursions from, easy accessibility to entire Koh Lanta by motorbike. There is a nice place to rent motorbikes from if you head 100 m to the left when you get up to the street.

    the tropical dayz room was more like a semi detached bungalow. one room next door which had a connecting door so a family could be together. the room was spacious, clean and well equipped. the cleaning staff were fabulous and went out of their way to help. the kitchena and reception staff were very smiley and friendly. really enjoyed staying here. although the resort does not have a swimming pool, we went next door and paid 50 baht to swim in an empty lovely big pool. the beach is unfortunately strewn with rubbish however to their best efforts, the staff attempted to clean daily. it made swimming in the sea not entirely pleasant. on day three, the beach was significantly cleaner and we did swim in the sea. found the resort to be really well maintained and managed. would definately stay here again.

    Location, clean, laid back

    We had a fun time at Castaway. Beach access was excellent and we enjoyed renting a motorbike to explore the island. Staff are friendly and very relaxed. The groundskeepers keep the gardens looking very beautiful and maintained, and always smiled as we walked by. Breakfast was pretty disappointing: small servings priced very high compared to more inspired and delicious food available at surrounding restaurants. We also found better massages at a place just up the road called Ann Massage. Overall I think Castaway is clean and reliable with friendly staff and a great location.

    Location is good, directly at the beach and close to the main road with restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets etc. Name is misleading though, this is not really a resort. It's more like a hotel with private bungalows, for a resort some amenities are missing. But still very nice! The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the dive shop on the premises is professional and well managed. The hotel restaurant sits directly at the beach and most dishes that we tried were delicious. Compared to restaurants in the main street it is quite expensive, but this comes with the location and atmosphere. Come here for some quiet days on the beach!

We got a good deal on the garden bungalow room which a cosy, rustic bungalow style accommodation with basic facilities. The staff and owners are friendly and more than willing to help where possible. Perfect for a backpacking couple looking for good value accommodation. Restaurant is decent with good variety. Beach bar is cool with direct access to the beach.
