If you asked me what my favourite kind of accommodation is, I would probably say: my own little bungalow with a bit of a hippie vibe, right on the beach with large windows to overlook the ocean, right next to a great restaurant.
A bonus would be a Spa, Yoga, Kayak, Snorkelling and Diving.
Well, guess where I am right now.
Castaway is a small resort on Koh Lipe, the southern most island of Thailand.
The bungalows are arranged around an adorable restaurant with a bar and a library. They have their own diving school, a yoga space and a spa. Needless to say I only went for a short walk around the island every day, to then return to the resort, it simply had everything I could ask for.

In the room you'll find cute details, that really show how much love went into designing the place. Again there are beautiful patterns, combined with pictures and hand-written signs.
There are different kinds of bungalows, I had a “Sea view”, which are the ones close to the beach but there are other sizes and locations – also for families – available.

At the yoga platform, there is always a nice breeze from the ocean and you can hear the waves.

While this surely has to be done, I would have appreciated it if the works had started a little later in the morning and if they had taken a break during the yoga sessions.
Still, I'm sure construction will be done with the beginning of high-season and this problem will solve itself.
I loved my stay at Castaway! This is such a laid back place, it's just perfect to relax for a couple of days. Their beautiful design creates a peaceful atmosphere, which is all you need for reading a book overlooking the ocean while having a delicious fruit smoothie.
I can highly recommend staying there and am actually planning on coming back as soon as I
