We travelled with family and stayed for seven nights. The island is beautifully set amongst azure waters, and often we found great snorkelling spots right off the resort beaches, which were calm and perfect for snorkelling, swimming, kayaking etc. All non motorised sports equipment hire was included in our package. We were impressed to find top of the range standup...

It's been a month since we got back & we're still dreaming of Castaway... Was here as part of our 10th wedding anniversary & since we were bringing along our 2 sons (aged 6 & 4), we had to make sure that the resort we chose was kid-friendly. And we cldn't be happier with our choice! The kids really love...

Good snorkling right off the beach , dining options and a variety of trecks and motor water excursions.

My husband and I stayed at Castaway for three nights in early February as part of our 'complimentary' honeymoon. Unfortunately, it rained the entire time, which meant we had no opportunity to explore the island, walk around or go for a swim in the ocean. If we were lucky, we managed to squeeze in two 20 minute swims in the...

Dear Alice320 Thank you for your review of your stay in February. It was most unfortunate that the weather wasn’t too visitor-friendly but we are glad to read that that didn’t dampen your spirits.

Spent a day on the beautiful Castaway island and had lunch at the resort. After a fantastic hike around the island (amazing views) we settled for a lunch table in the glorious sunshine looking out at the magnificent view. Unfortunately the food offerings do not match the stunningly beautiful surroundings. The venue is tired, the buffet area poor, the furniture...

Our third time on the island, although haven't been there in 3 years and pleased to say the place is still paradise and has not suffered at all for the change in ownership (now owned by Outrigger Resorts). Would recommend this particularly for families but a range of different guests were there and all blended in fine. Great holidays are...

Decided to take a day-trip to this wonderful island. The scenery was stunning, the food fantastic. Next time I visit it will be to stay for at least two days and nights. All the staff were most helpful and attentive to our requirements. The island offers snorkelling, kayaking and boasts an excellent swimming pool.
