Our room was nearly $90 a night and we thought we would have a room overlooking the beach which is why we paid extra for this room however it was right opposite reception and everyone could see in our room so it wasn't private. None of the rooms are private however. The room was huge and perfect for three girls,...

We chose to stay on Koh Lanta for 2.5 weeks, which in hindsight was a bit much but we were well taken care of. Advice: splurge and get air conditioning. We stayed in the Garden Bungalows and they were adorable and very nice. The nights were fine and I slept well, but during the day there was no where to...

We stayed at Lanta Castaway for two nights and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Our bungalow was perfectly clean and the beach towels provided were a lovely touch. The resort itself is small and peaceful, there is not much going on outside the resort but that didn't matter. We were at the end of our travels...

My husband and I spent 7 nights Lanta Castaway. We had the most relaxing and wonderful time. Sitting on the beach watching the sunsets, cocktails in hand. The food was just wonderful with so much variety. We ate dinner at the resort each night because we could not leave the comfort and romantic atmosphere created by the beach, sunset, service...

We have been traveling for 4 months and really wanted to find somewhere we could relax, socialise and dive. This place has it all by the bucket load.
