We stayed in a Garden Bungalow, which is a lovely small Bamboo Hut with a King Size comfortable bed. Although the bungalow provided the basics (mosquito net, fans, space for suitcases and a shower room) we were pleasantly surprised to find a safe in our room! This hotel is perfectly placed on the beach, with amazing sunsets, the bar is... More

We visited Lanta Castaway on a family holiday with grandparents, aunts and uncles in tow. All of us were delighted to find that the resort had the perfect beach location with the beach just steps away from our bungalows and rooms and a very cute bar set-up too.
