Castaway resort is located on sunrise beach, which is beautiful. The restaurant/ bar area is really great - amazing food and beautiful scenery. I'd highly recommend going for lunch/ dinner or to just chill with a drink. But don't expect a friendly welcome from most of the guys working there, there's not much enthusiasm and it seems like they'd rather...

The breezy cottages are a really cool setup. You're up in the treetops (almost) and from there you get a really nice view and breeze. The architecture, styling and finishes are great. Very elegant in their simplicity. Good vibe. Comfy. Also the restaurant / bar is just about the most pleasant place on earth to whittle away an afternoon. Someone...

The location is just right. Straight by the beach. With plenty of space to sit or lay, but all the way chill. Only a few longtail-boats on-shore. Fancy Drinks and good food (Clubsandwich: best value!). The two-floored beachfront house we've stayed in was clean and welcoming. The standard might be basic but backpackers, and those who once were, will feel...

We were looking for a peaceful place. But that's not what we got. Everything in the beach front bungalows is simple: cold water, no air conditioning, no fridge, you can charge your phone only upstairs. So far okay. But in front of the bungalows it's quite busy, not peaceful at all. Too many boats. Very unfriendly and unmotivated staff. The...

When we came here in the past, everything was almost perfect. But... they constructed many many more chalets. It makes it too crowded, especially the beach area and the restaurant. Bye bye peace and calm. We had to wait very long before getting the menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Once ordered, we had to wait for a very long...

If you want to sleep, please be careful. Dont book a bungalow near the village!! Try to get a bungalow on the right side of the beach. Otherwise you only hear dogs barking the whole night. And they are really noisy

Going back this May for our 4th time! We can't have enough of Castaway! The food is amazing, perfect locations, amazing staff! The bungallows are cozy, windy and clean. We even got married there last year and totally recommend it for anyone looking for a place to celebrate the big day with a small, simple and charming celebration. ;)

We were 3 adults and 2 small kids (3yo and 1yo) staying in one beach front and one garden room. Our first impression wasn't the best but the location, staff and general vibe quickly won us over. What we liked: -the location on the beach, perfect for watching the sunrise before heading to a yoga class, perfect for families (white...

First time I was in Castaway, 3 years ago, was a nice moment. At that time, no boat in front of the beach, still a nice beach, friendly staff. Since then, a lot of new hotels oppened just near by and The Castaway have not made any improvement to stay at the top... Still no hot water in the rooms,...

If you are booking a bungalow, you should know what to expect. It's not a hotel room. It's basic, but comfortable. Maybe hard for some people to get used to a curtain for a bathroom door. The main bar/restaurant area has a nice chilled vibe but it is a family friendly resort, so be ready for some kids running around....
