Castaway Resort Koh Lipe - FSM003

The eco-resort Castaway combines comfort and style with a dream location.

50 Bedrooms, Sleeps 100

Beachfront location
Dive centre

When the owners of Castaway started thinking about building a resort, they wanted it to be eco-friendly, and to blend in with the environment. The hotel's design has been influenced by traditional Thai building methods. All buildings are made of natural hard woods built on posts buried in the ground eliminating the need for concrete foundations. The roofs are made from local thatch. The combination of natural materials keeps the bungalows cool as they don’t retain the heat. The bungalows themselves catch the winds that come in off the beach and channel them inside, keeping you cool as you sleep, even without air conditioning.

The Rooms
Featuring one or two levels, the wooden bungalow include natural materials, Thai architecture and are designed to capture natural breezes from the sea. They have a ceiling fan, a mosquito net and a private bathroom with a shower.

All rooms have hammocks where guests can relax in, beach towels are available at reception, and WiFi is available in the reception and restaurant area. Guests will find a lockable wooden chest and mini-safe. Hand soap, shower gel, shampoo & conditioner are provided as well.

The rooms do not have air-conditioning, TVs, hot water, fridges nor hairdryers.

Two storey’s tall, the Beach Front Breezy Bungalows are the coolest bungalows out of all Koh Lipe resort. Right on the beach with uninterrupted ocean views, you can’t get any closer to the sea than this. The upstairs bedroom has a comfortable queen size double bed and the glass doors opening out onto a small balcony connecting you with nature. The large downstairs bathroom has a western toilet, cold water shower, sink and storage space. Note there is no door between the bathroom down stairs and the upstairs bedroom this might be a problem for people planning to share with friends.

Some of these bungalows can sleep an extra person on a day bed. If you would like to sleep 3 people in a breezy bungalow, please book a Big Breezy Bungalow.
