My wife and I wanted to stay in a more romantic and laid back hotel, and I am pretty sure we could not have found a better Hotel. The staff was super helpful and accommodating, especially Joe, the Resort's manager, who was always there answering all of our questions. If you are wanting a laid back resort, that is away...

As the title says, the rooms are a bit dated - our bed was directly under the windows and aircon and so the curtains were in our faces if we laid down and the aircon blew on us (even after fiddling with the settings). There was an extra bed in our room too, which is fine, but also wasn't required....

We stayed at the Lanta Castaway for 3 nights during our trip in Koh Lanta. The staff go above and beyond to ensure you are happy and comfortable. The bungalow room was great, beds were comfortable, very clean. The grounds were lovely too. Breakfast was included with our room and they have a menu rather than a buffet which was...

Excellent resort right on the end of Long beach perfectly situated amongst loads of other bars and restaurants. Our room was very nice as is the whole complex, beautifully kept gardens. Breakfast was decent, there was quite a lot to choose from. The restaurant had amazing food also, the portions were huge. The staff were very friendly and the room...

Location, staff, room, amenities, staff all great. Getting there from the airport is really the only tricky part (spend a lot and get private transfer, or figure out public mini van). Once there, it's a one stop shop for relaxing and touring the island. On site restaurant, bar, dive shop and scooter rental left me no reason to go anywhere...

A welcome relief after the noisy and dirty Bangkok that we visited first on our Thailand trip. Perfectly manicured garden, super friendly and accommodating staff, comfortable bungalow with everything one can possibly need. And all that steps away from the beautiful and quiet Long Beach that you'll never tire of walking along. Absolutely breathtaking sunsets that you'll love to observe...
