Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our second visit to the CastAway and it continues to be a romantic, peaceful, tranquil place to get away. I encourage folks to check out their Facebook page to get a feel of the property. A typical day for us here would be to enjoy a beautifully prepared breakfast, Thai, European & American (Tex_Mex) available made-to-order. Then a long walk and swim on the pristine beach. Followed by the resort’s beach side massage. Time for a nap, then happy hour while watching the spectacular western skies as the sun sets into the horizon over the Andaman sea. Maybe dinner across the street at Joe’s for some remarkable Texas style BBQ. Can’t thank owner Darin enough for his and his team’s excellent hospitality. The Lanta CastAway is truly a magical place to stay.

What an amazing place. Well taken care of. We slept 4 adults in the same house and it was spacious enough. Beautiful garden around the bungalows and we didn’t hear a sound from the nearby main road 100 m away. Beach full of small corals but just a short walk you can find nicer. Beds are great and different choices in breakfast is very generous. We really recommend this gorgeous place.

Nice beachside resort with beautiful, well cared for gardens and cozy bungalows that are clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything you need for comfort in your room. Very comfortable beds and pillows which is a big deal when away from home as well. We stayed in 5 resorts on different Islands throughout Thailand, including Phuket during our 3 weeks in Thailand; this one was our top choice. The deck was wonderful to sit on and listen to the birds while relaxing after a day of exploring or first thing in the morning with coffee. It is also nice having a foot wash before stepping onto the deck, so you aren't tracking sand from the beach or elsewhere up onto it and then into your room. The beach is lovely and not overcrowded and there are quite a few restaurants within walking distance and a little convenience store very close by. The lovely ladies at the desk where you check in were very good and helpful in getting us a scooter arranged for 3 days and also upon our arrival from the Saladin Pier our taxi driver charged us double the price quoted by the resort upon our arrival. They gave my husband back 200 baht and were very angry at the driver for over charging! The resort is set far enough off the road and the bungalows are closer to the beach, so you do not hear any of the road traffic which is a big bonus as well. The only con is that they need to give guests larger bottles of water instead of 4 small glass bottles as those get used up very quickly when drinking, brushing teeth or making coffee.

The staff here are simply amazing. They were friendly and helpful, and so genuine! We stayed at the beachfront bungalow for six days and I can't recommend this hidden gem highly enough. I had a bit of stomach upset in the middle of our stay, and when my husband went out to breakfast without me, our server asked, "where's your wife?" He indicated I had an upset tummy and she suggested a hot soup with rice and ginger (which I am certain is not actually on the menu), and then she actually brought that soup to my room for me. The resort also offered to drive to a doctor's office, which ended up being not necessary because that soup totally worked, but I was blown away by this act of kindness. (Is it because I'm American?) Location is fantastic, with many small restaurants nearby along the beach as well the road, but the food here is so good you may not want to eat anywhere else. I'm still missing those Thai omelettes for breakfast and the pick-your-own fish option at dinner. We did enjoy the Funky Fish (a little bit up the beach) and Mama Dang's (right next door on the road). As others have noted, the beach here is best at high tide. The resort can help with scooter rental and Koh Lanta is not very crowded, so we had a blast exploring and going to nearby beaches, as well as Old Town Lanta on the other side of the island. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Before Lanta Castaway, we were staying in a non-air conditioned bungalow so the ac here felt great! (Honestly, we didn't feel like we needed the ac to stay cool enough since the weather in November was great, but the benefits of ac is that you can keep all the doors/windows closed to keep out mosquitos). The room was good sized and clean. The garden walkway to the beach was well groomed and pretty. Breakfast was included and it was good. The best part were the beds/chairs overlooking the ocean. It was a bit rocky at low tide, but at high ride it was easily swimmable. The staff were nice and kind, but it did not have the same home-like feel as other places.

We stayed here for two weeks in October 2023. The staff is absolutely amazing, the food is amazing, the atmosphere is super relaxed and the location is perfect. I seriously have nothing bad to say about this place. There is no play area for children or pool, and therefore not many children at the resort. However children are super welcomed by the staff :)

Hotel very nice, beautiful gardens, staff very welcoming and helpful. Rooms okay, beds very hard though. Air con and ceiling fan worked well. Complimentary water, tea, coffee, sugar, creamer left daily. Breakfast really good, plenty of choice. Beach and waterfront nice but not enough sun loungers some days. Have seen better beaches in other parts of Krabi. Not much happening outside of hotel, pavements none existent and a lot of bars and shops are closed. We found nearby SalaDan had a greater choice of accommodation, shops, a market, restaurants and beautiful beaches.

We just stayed here for 5 nights and could not have been happier with our resort choice - we loved every second of it! The gardens are very well maintained, very lush and tranquil. Our bungalow ("double room with garden view") was perfect - well appointed, excellent air con, big comfortable bed, good shower and a lovely balcony seating area. We would actually request this specific bungalow again when we revisit as it was very quiet, away from the restaurant/bar area. Loved the breakfast, good variety of choice and cooked fresh to order. The employees were all super friendly, always saying hello as we would walk by. Location cant be beat, its at the southern end of long beach and all good eateries are within a 2km walk, theres a 7/11 within 2min and lots of tuk tuks around the area ready to take you where you want to go. HIGHLY recommend this resort!

Apart from being in a fantastic location this resorts strongest asset is it staff. Everyone we met was really friendly and very professional. The owners/ operators have thought through all the details and run a very nice, welcoming resort. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and the facilities have been designed to ensure that, if you really wanted to, you wouldn’t have to leave the resort at all. However they also offer lots of advice if you do want to venture elsewhere.
