Lanta Castaway Beach Resort is THE place to stay when in Koh Lanta, Thailand! As you enter the resort you walk through a beautiful garden of colorful tropical flowers and trees. Passing by the bungalows you'll see many guest enjoying their private bungalow patios and you instantly feel relaxed. We were welcomed by smiling faces of the friendly staff and...

We had a great experience staying in our little bungalow. Staff is very friendly and helped organize our full day snorkeling adventure. There is a bar on site and food at resort is great. Beach is not as clear and bright blue, but very secluded with only people at resort.

We weren't staying here but we somehow managed to eat here most days when in koh Lanta. Very good and affordable restaurant with nice team and beautiful sea view. The menu is a mix of Thai and western cuisine. What else do you need. Perfect

Went here with my daughter for a few days, and we both loved it! The rooms were kept spotlessly clean, the food, both Tex Mex and Thai, were delicious. The staff were great, very helpful and friendly especially at the bar. We wished that we could have stayed for longer, and will certainly be back next year.

This is our second time staying at the Lanta Castaway Beach Resort and the place is amazing. I can't even begin to explain how "welcoming" the staff is there. Right when you walk in to check in, everyone is greeting you with warm "Hello's" and offering you drinks on the spot. The rooms are super clean and very cozy and...

We wanted to go diving for the week in Thailand we chose Koh Lanta as it is laid back and a nice spot. Lanta Castaway had a great dive shop, great massage parlor, and good food. All at a very good value! Great service we will be back again.

Lanta Castaway continues to be the complete package resort. The bungalows offer great comfort with king size beds and plenty of space, air conditioning and the beautiful landscaping offers great curb appeal. The proximity to the beach is a major plus as well. The resort has its own bar with day beds and beach chairs right on the beach. So...
