Travellers' Choice
At Castaway Resort the spirit of ‘The Beach’ is brought to life. Amid the beautiful setting nature has given Koh Lipe, our spacious wooden bungalows and large chill out deck overlooking the beach definitely make Castaway the most atmospheric of Koh Lipe’s resorts.

We stayed here, in Castaways for two nights, while we had our diving course in dive center nearby and I must say that this place has absolutely met our needs. We lived in lovely two-storey bungalow with a garden view, and it was very clean and neat inside, the same as the territory nearby. Despite plenty of boats, we heard no engine sounds in the mornings, so we could have a good sleep here. I would like to highlight two things in particular. The first one is staff: they answered all the questions we had and helped us when we needed an aid. The second thing is a restaurant. Oh…That is something! It was a special kind of pleasure to drink espresso and enjoy a sea view, while sitting here in the mornings and relax with something cold and refreshing - in the evenings. By the way, espresso, is especially good here! To cut a long story short: we will definitely come back here in our next visit of Koh Lipe.

The Castaway Resort must be one of the nicest resorts on this lovely island, and great value for money. Fantastic location, right on Sunrise Beach, nice wooden cottages, beautiful restaurant and terrace, nice food and drinks, very friendly staff. Sure, no AC or hot shower, but who needs that in Koh Lipe anyway. Would definitely recommend the place, you would love it.

Before coming to Castaway the communication was fairly good I have to say. Also the place looks really nice. But that’s it. I always woke up at 6; because part of the bungalows are with glass which you cannot cover and you get light into your room. The blinds look fancy but very, very cumbersome; no idea how it works till now. The lights in room are kind of inexistent; it was very very dark and it’s very hard to find anything in the dark, at least for me given I’m not a bat. The food was good but a bit pricy (so if one doesn’t want; no need to buy - free world). The check out is at, wait for it, 10:30 am. I think I travelled to 40+ countries and many places in Thailand but haven’t seen a 10:30 checkout (maybe it exists, but I haven’t seen it). We asked kindly if we could extend for one hour; but the hotel said the rooms are fully booked. After my friend insisted the hotel said if we pay for one more night we can extend the check out for an hour. So in the first place they didn’t tell us the truth about the rooms being fully booked. And the more interesting or rather annoying part is they just partially cleaned out rooms so technically without any problem we could have stayed for an additional hour so we could have a last swim and shower before leaving the island. I think a bit flexibility is part of this game - we hadn’t asked for a 4 hour long extension. But it is what it is.

I stayed here for three nights and while the four beachfront bungalows were booked (and quite expensive) I stayed at the reasonably priced garden bungalows. Very reasonable priced and very nice inside. No wifi in bungalow (only at beach restaurant) and not aircon or even hot water. Still, I enjoyed it here and can highly recommend it. Very helpful staff and nice restaurant.
