At Castaway Resort the spirit of ‘The Beach’ is brought to life. Amid the beautiful setting nature has given Koh Lipe, our spacious wooden bungalows and large chill out deck overlooking the beach definitely make Castaway the most atmospheric of Koh Lipe’s resorts.

We found castaway 2 days after we got to koh lipe. We stayed in 2 different hotels the previous nights and wanted to really explore the island without having guides telling us where to go or what we should do. It was a very unplanned...More

This beautiful place has all of the amenities required for a comfortable stay, without giving up any of the exotic beauty and rustic details that remind you that you are on a tropical oasis. The rooms, the restaurant, lounge, beach and shared areas are all...More

Stayed there for almost a week. In short, the room was ok (do not expect anything fantastic) and i was happy with my choice. A bit pricey, but Lipe is expensive. All made of wood, ceiling fan, mosquito net, hammocks in the bungalow. If going...More

Unlike the other reviewers here, I was quite happy with the scenic experience we had while we were here. We came during low-season in Koh Lipe, so it was well expected thunderstorms and high seas. The chalet came with shower gels, and all the basic...More

Loved it here - The resort is gorgeous and the beach just stunning. The bungalows are fabulous but they do really need air-con, they would be just perfection if they weren't so hot.When we stayed it was wet season so high temps and no breeze...More

Dear Sir Madam We are booked to visit here this year and are concerned about a few things after reading some reviews. We are booked in a Garden View Family House. We heard of H3 bungalows at the back of castaways is noisy " family bungalow H3 was right next to local housing so lots of kids, dogs, chickens, mopeds AND building more bungalows right next to these, with the main path/road/thoroughfare next to H3, so lots of noise through the night including the cockerels starting at 4am, dog fights in the night and little more than 4 hours sleep". We are not bothered about cockerels it's just the other stuff. Is there anywhere for me to plug in and charge my electrical appliance e.g. Camera battery, Laptop etc? Also we have heard of experiences of wild dogs approaching customers at the back bungalows... We have also heard of the fans not being strong enough. We could bring our own fan if there is a electrical socket.
