“Gorgeous hotel, very clean, friendly staff, great breakfast, lovely rooms”
Reviewed 23 May 2011

Gorgeous hotel, very clean, friendly staff, great breakfast, quiet location - get a tuk tuk or taxi to busier bar/restaurant areas or walk across the road (sometimes easier said than done!) to the chilled out beach restaurants, no dinner served at hotel as far as i was aware - but could be - i like to go out when i'm on holiday anyway.
p.s. go to / donate to the Koh Lanta Animal Centre if you care about animals!!! :-) donation box in Lanta Marmaid reception!
i stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my gfriend in november then for 3 weeks in december with my mum & sister. lovely rooms.

Beautiful, clean and spacious rooms. The mattress of our bed was a bit hard though. Great service, great breakfast with fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, toast and jam, tea or coffee and eggs with bacon if you want. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating making it a very pleasant experience. The only downside of the place is that it's a bit far to walk to restaurants and travel agencies so renting a motorbike would be a good idea.

In general I wouldn't recommend Koh Lanta during low season (although you get way better room rates at this time). There was nothing really going on when we stayed there. The beaches were deserted and the ocean didn't look inviting to swim in but this could be due to previous tsunami damage or the monsoon.

Room Tip: Bargain for room rates everywhere in Thailand!

My partner and I were looking for somewhere to stay that would resemble what we had heard of Ko Lanta to be, quiet and laid back. We booked ahead and went by the reviews on Trip Advisor. We risked booking multiple nights and spending a little bit out of our budget to come away from the traditional Guest House. Wow, were we surprised when we were welcomed by first name by Chai the hotel owner. The Lanta Mermaid is everything that you could ever want or need. You really do come as a guest and leave as a friend as their slogan suggests.

Chai helped us make our stay in Ko Lanta exactly what we wanted. We rented very new and maintained scooters from him for an excellent price. I felt like he had our safety as a priority as he carefully helped suit us for our ride and give us his contact if we ran into trouble. I really felt as though he looked after us as being his own family.

The rooms are incredibly clean and maintained. The rooms are also very spacious. I still to this day crave the breakfast that was served each morning...it was to die for! Individual white china plates brought by the minute...first came the tea, then the half mango and banana (changed daily), and then the multi grain bread with marmalade, and then the eggs(your choice of style), and then the meat, and even yogurt and cereal if you wished...and fresh juice! It was amazing!! A great way to start the day!

You will not only leave as a friend, you will leave feelig like royalty!

We stayed at this hotel for three days in April 2011. General impression is very good, the hotel is clean, cozy and comfortable. Staff very attentive and friendly. Breakfast at the hotel are beautiful. Nearby is a market with fruit, mini-market. Beach nearby. Highly recommend this hotel for everyone to stop to Koh Lanta!

We stayed at the Mermaid for 3 nights in March and really enjoyed it. The hotel is close to Lanta town so easy to get to the Pier to leave, and it is right across the road from a nice beach. This place is amazingly clean and free from sand inside, thanks to the shower outside and everyone keeps their shoes outside the front door. The rooms are spacious enough and quiet, and the breafast is quite substantial--best bacon ever! The staff was polite and professional.

They say that they are converting the palce into apartments so stay here while you can! This isn't right on the beach, but just across the road so that wasn't a problem.

As for Lanta itself, I wish we stayed longer and skipped Phi Phi and the drunken younger crowd we found there. Lanta is peacful, full of secluded beaeches, good food, and very friendly people.

We could not fault Lanta Mermaid. The service was excellent, very friendly and professional. The room was extremely comfortable (I liked the big bathroom and heavy curtains to keep the room cool and dark for holiday sleeping in!), breakfast was delicious and the hotel dog was gorgeous. Because the hotel is on a main road it can be a little bit noisy at times with traffic, but the location makes up for it as it is very convenient to the lovely Klong Dao beach and to the main town area. The hotel was very well equipped with beach mats and toys, books and magazines, and you can hire a motorbike directly from the hotel and the staff can book day trips for you.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and found it to be the cleanest one we have stayed in thailand (we visited 6 different hotels on our round-trip). The staff is very friendly and courteous. The rooms are well equiped and furnished quite taseful. Good breakfast. The hotel lies near the main road, so if you are sensitive to noise, you better choose rooms with mountain view.
If we go back to Koh Lanta again, we surely will choose this hotel again.
