The Mermaid Hotel & Club lies on the golden sands of Mahawaskaduwa; a cosy fishing village in the city of Kalutara which is of religious significance, just 24 miles south of Colombo and 45 miles from the International airport. It is cleverly nestled in a vast coconut grove along a stretch of golden, sandy beach; a perfect get-away for sun, sand and sea lovers.

My wife and I visited this Hotel last year and enjoyed it so much, went back again this year. It again met up with all our expectations. The Hotel is small, right on the beach and the Staff are the friendliest and most helpful we have ever met and we are a well travelled couple.

The hotel itself is quite a nice property. However I would not return to this hotel because, of the stray dogs on the property and on the beaches. Surely the hotel has some say in the governance of this small village, and they should use it to convince the govt to clear out the

Dear Guest, We thank you for your stay at Mermaid Hotel & Club and for the constructive feedback sharing your holiday experience at our property. We would also like to thank you for taking the time to observe and comment constructively on areas where there were lapses. While we regret for these inconveniences on our part, we are happy to note that our team was able to resolve the issues. It isn't easy to keep the stray cats and dogs away since several guests have taken to feeding them. As you might have seen from notices posted around the property, we've requested all guests to refrain from doing so. In addition to this, we are currently taking all possible measures to mitigate the issue of stray dogs around the property and will enforce a strict course of action to keep them away. Please accept our most sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused during your holiday. We hope this experience will not deter you from visiting us again and trust you will grant us the opportunity to serve you better once more. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future. Thank you once again for your feedback.

We had a deluxe room which was kept immaculate by our very efficient and friendly room attendant. Food was amazing and our server was attentive and a real comedian, Billy Connelly the 2nd, speaks better Scottish than I do and I’m the real thing!! 10 out of 10.

Hi, The Mermaid Hotel Celebrates the sinhala new year , the new year festival and there are many opportunities locally to experience the new year culture. Please be sure that Asya Tours will be available for any excursions you may wish to take whilst in Sri Lanka.

I can only comment re the Mermaid - they have standard Uk type sockets so you don't need adapt orbs. All their rooms have plenty of sockets.

Hi. The sea is quite rough with under-currents. On our two week stay the red (do not swim) flags were raised everyday. But we did see a few people having a swim. Regards... The Gulls.

You might be lucky and get a guitarist etc and they do have large screens for whatever is on (football, tennis etc) but its a lovely scene even without entertainment drinking in the soft breezes and relaxed ambience! :)

Having used Asya tours on several occasions they have always been happy to let me create my own tour so it might be worth contacting them as they may be able to accommodate your request
