“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

We had a wonderful four nights here. The bar and restaurant are great, and the view at sunset it absolutely stunning. We stayed in a garden bungalow and it was such good value for money. The staff are great and really friendly, especially the main lady who is absolutely lovely! I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Garden bungalows are great for the price

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

We decided to stay here based on the reviews, and it was a really great choice. Everyone is really helpful, the atmosphere is amazing and peaceful. We had the beach to ourselves. If we were to go back to Lanta, we'd probably stay at Kantiang Bay which was by far our favorite beach, but about 20 minutes on motorbike from Lanta Castaway. We were there on slow season, so a lot of restaurants and hotels are closed, still an amazing island to spend a relaxing time in Thailand.

Room Tip: Garden Bungalows are small and basic but comfortable. A great value for your money.

We have chosen this place on base of the recommendations of Trip Advisor. We booked the garden bungalow for 450 baht a night. It was by far the best bungalow we have had in Thailand! It was small and basic but clean! There were 2 fans to keep the place 'cool' at night. The best thing were the free toilet amenities. There was also a bug spray, a outside mosquito spiral and a safe. And I have a question: where else in Thailand can you find a bungalow with this services for this price? Answer: probably no where.

The resort is directly located on the beach and have a nice bar to watch the sunset. The garden is well maintained and the resort is looking overall very well. Also the owner is nice and he is walking around to check is everything is all right.

The island itself, it wasn't our thing. It was a bit quiet (low season), many restaurants were closed and the beaches were not so pretty as we expected. If you are want to stay in Lanta, don't look further, book this!

Thanks to tripadvisor I think me and my partner picked the best resort on koh lanta. Not looking to stay in another hotel we booked castaway resort in advance of visiting the island and we was not disappointed . The staff were super nice and helpful. The rooms are amazing little bungalows with really nice Decor and great bathrooms. The bar/beech is the place to be in the evenings for amazing sunsets and cheap cocktails. Be warned, a lot of the resorts on koh lanta do not have in door bathrooms even if they quote they do . . . People we meet showed us some real shockers and not for people who don't like a little wild life joining them in the shower :) just a warning.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights and it was a perfect relaxing retreat away from the crowds. The resort is amazing and the staff go out of their way to help you. Darren, the owner, even drive us to a pub to watch an English football match and bought me a new frisbee when mine got lost at sea!

The food was amazing, with a great selection, even though we couldn't resist Mexican everynight! The beach is lovely and while we were there the waves were great fun. There are lots of bars and restaurants around the hotel, though we were there in low season so many were shut. However, the beach bar was perfect for us to drink cocktails, while watching the sunset! The rooms are really nicely decorated with absolutely everything you could possibly need and the friendly cleaners clean them to a high standard!

The staff helped us hire a car, which allowed all four of us to explore the island, which was great!! This place is a must stay and we will definitely be returning!
