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...

Lanta Castaway is exactly what we were hoping for on the first island leg of our two week honeymoon in Thailand. After a week in Bangkok and Chiang Mai the laid back feel of Koh Lanta in general and Lanta Castaway were perfect. We were in a Cosy Casa about midway back from the beach and this was PERFECT- we...

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.

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....
