We were booked to stay at Lanta Castaway for 5 nights while we traveled through Thailand. We enjoyed the location and hotel so much that we extended the stay an additional 2 nights instead of going to a new island. The rooms were spacious, very clean, great air-conditioning and very comfortable. The massage service on the beach was awesome, we...

Comfortable, clean, friendly service, nice atmosphere. Bungalows are close to beach. Nice end of Long Beach. All the food is great and good value too. Even the messages are good value, cheaper than many of the other resorts along Long Beach. The only down side is there's no pool but this doesn't matter as there's a great shaded chill out...

Booked this resort online last minute as we needed some luxury after a few budget hotels - we were not disappointed! Bungalows are very well equipped with umbrellas, torch, broom, fridge (free water), safety box, mosquito spray and ant spray! Beds were so comfortable and soft. The shower was fairly hot and powerful. It's literally steps away from the beach...

This is a cute resort on a good beach in koh Lanta. Service is good, the restaurant is good (Thai and Tex Mex), and it is reasonably convenient for local shops, bars and restaurants. The rooms themselves are reasonable. They are set in joined pairs (so you have one connected neighbour) and they run from close to the beach, back...

My husband and our two children stayed here for 5 nights in mid December on the recommendation of some friends who had stayed the previous year. We were not disappointed. The hotel was pristine and run like a well oiled machine with the staff being friendly but discreet. Food in the restaurant was excellent. The manager - Joe - went...

This is our second visit to Koh Lanta and our second stay at this resort. Both times it has been incredible. The staff are all exceptional, the service impeccable, the drinks and food irresistible, the massages are the best on the island. We love the ease of the resort, the sunsets, the gardens- everything. We will be back soon.

Nice resort close to the bottom end of Long beach. It's got some of the best sun loungers and sun mattresses on the beach. But the south end of Long beach is also some of the rockiest and most dangerous to swim around. However the sand is smoother than the northern section, so this resort has an "okay" beach for...
