GF and I stayed here for 5 nights in the Seabreeze Bungalow and I will begin with saying that it was VERY CLEAN!!! I have read reviews before going and thus the reason why we booked at Castaway but when you finally arrive to the resort walking towards the reception, you think to yourself in a sigh of "Ahhhhh, finally relaxed".

Aside from the Great rooms to amenities the service was exceptional. Everything from nice lounging mattresses that over look the beach too having a great relaxing massage near the beach, or even if you would like to take up diving lessons (which we did).

The location of this resort is centralized that you have restaurants close enough and also have other important business near by, such as the Pharmacy and 7-11 convenient store (4 minute walk)

Overall... Excellent :D

Room Tip: Some may thing the rooms near the restaurant and bar are noisy, I don't think so. If you sleep e...

From the moment we made inquiries, Darin, the owner of Lanta Castaway, responded promptly with a lot of relevant information. The resort is beautiful maintained, and even the simple cabins that we stayed in the (Garden Bungalows) were clean and comfortable. Lanta Castaway is a nice resort that allows for people on different budgets to enjoy some of the comforts, too. The staff are friendly, the food excellent (will write a review for The Beachcomber restaurant, too) and the whole experience was just lovely. We wandered the island, and looked at other places. I was even happier to have chosen Lanta Castaway after seeing some of the other accommodation options in the same price range as the Garden Bungalows at Lanta Castaway.

Room Tip: The bungalows are equipped with 2 fans which generally kept me quite comfortable at night, but they...

Stayed at quieter South end of Long Beach at Lanta Castaway in an ac bungalow set in beautifully kept gardens.
Do not expect a boutique room but it was bright and clean - if being really critical hv stayed in much cheaper accommodation with similar standard bathroom.
Great atmosphere, laid back and relaxed, staff really friendly, food really good (recommend the fried fish with lemon grass and chilli and basil). Not much night life or even evening life but bar fine for chilling out with a beer or cocktail. Loved the Nacho and popcorn snacks too. It might have been busier at the North end but we didn't venture out. Access out in the evening is tricky from the beach as the tidal inlet does cross the entrance so you have to wade - sometimes waist high. I believe it is not a permanent occurrence (in the hands of nature) and don't let it put you off as the bonus is that during the day you can sit with the sea literally feet away - so close so you can walk straight into and it's the only resort that has this at this end.

We just returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable week on Koh Lanta. We could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation and loved our stay at Castaway.
The grounds are clean and well cared for, bungalows are charming and provide you with all that you need for a comfortable stay. The staff are lovely and really made our stay so much more meaningful. The food is excellent - we didnt need to go else where! The bar is fun - great margaritas!! --- and our children loved the shakes and popcorn!
The beach out front was perfect for our family. Our girls enjoyed the "river" as they referred to it, in both low and high tide, and this did not present a problem for us at all.
If you are looking for a resort with lots of children you may want to look else where. For the better part of the week we were the only family staying there with small children. This did not pose a problem for us and hopefully not for anyone else. :)
We really did not do much more then relax and enjoy the beautiful Castaway Resort. We did take a visit to the animal shelter down the road and were very impressed with the work they are doing. This was evident by the few dogs on the beach that looked healthy and did not cause any disturbance to us at all.
The owners of the Castaway are very present, always checking on things to make sure that things are running smoothly. They seem to really look after the staff - who all seem to love working there.
We look forward to our next visit to Koh Lanta and will absolutely stay at Castaway again.
