I loved this hotel. The location is in a very good part of Khlong Dao beach, towards its Southern end where the road comes closer to the beach, yet before the beach gets rocky. The hotel -- common areas and rooms -- are spotless clean, not merely 'Thai-clean'. The building seems rather new and built to Western standards, with showers that have proper water pressure. The owner and a couple of his trusted associates run the front desk, and they really do take great care to ensure guests' comfort and satisfaction.

I had one of the mountain-view rooms ('superior') which are pretty good size, and face to the back of the building. I loved the green and quiet view that the room had from the balcony or the bathroom. However, these rooms are somewhat lacking in natural light, as the only window (other than in the bathroom) are the balcony doors, which are frosted rather than translucent, and even with the balcony doors fully opened, the light penetration is modest due to the roof overhang over the balcony. The 'deluxe' rooms face the front of the building, are a bit bigger, and appear to be brighter with bigger, clear, windows. However, these face the main road (which is not really busy) with perhaps a tad of ocean view on the upper floors.

Overall, I think that this hotel presents a great experience and a great value.

We stayed 7 nights at Lanta Mermaid and really enjoyed it. The hotel is beautifully decorated right through with gorgeous rooms and spotlessly clean. Staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. Located across the road from the beach (2 min walk) and about 15 minute walk from Saladan. Would definitely use again when in Lanta, great value for money and fantastic breakfast every day!

We stayed for 4 nights. Everything from renting a scooter to boat tickets were taken care of for us. Staff was very nice and helped us with everything we needed. Breakfast was really good!

We stayed at the Mermaid House in November 2011 for 5 nights. Originally we only planned to stay for 3 nights, but the island is so beautiful and the hotel so very nice, that we decided to stay longer. The hotel is located 200 meters from Klong Dao beach (you can easily walk there), which isn't the best beach on Ko Lanta, but still very nice. Rooms to the front might be a little noisy, so you may want to ask for a room to the back, like we did - it was very quiet. It is only about 2,5 km to Saladan, so you can easily take a TukTuk in the evening to go to Saladan for dinner. The entire house is extremely clean and well kept, the owners really take care. They are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served outside on a nice terrace. I can really recommend a stay at the Mermaid!!

Pros: Helpful & friendly staff. Clean and comfortable rooms. Tasty breakfast. Good location. Beautiful views (from the 4th floor at least). Trustworthy.

Cons: Personally I would have liked to be on a hotel right by the beach / with facilities to sit and relax in the sun and shower after a dip in the sea without paying extra to the beach resorts. The beach is just 3 minute walk away though so it wasn't a major issue.

Room Tip: I enjoyed our view over the mountain but it would probably have been nice as well to face the ocean...

We travelled to a few places in Thailand, one of which was the Lanta Mermaid and we were so impressed. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and always spotlessly clean. It is about 3km from Ban Saladan (the port town) - a little too far for us to walk to, but a trip there by tuk tuk only cost us 100 baht (in fact all of the tuk tuks we took to various places on Ko Lanta cost us 100 baht!) The hotel is on the main road, but we had a mountain view room which faces away from the road so noise was not an issue (we do sleep with ear plugs though). The beach is a short walk (200m) away and is really nice to visit in the evenings as there are lots of small bars and restaurants.

The service in the hotel was phenomenal - the best I've ever received. Mr Chai and Ms Pao are so helpful and organised a number of day trips for us (we did the half day kayaking tour and the elephants/waterfall tour - these were fab). We also did some scuba diving which was incredible. Mr Chai also helped us to organise the transport to the next hotel we were staying in and helped to make things very easy for us.

If I had to make any critical comments it would be that the air conditioner is quite loud (but this was the case in all of the hotels we visited) - ear plugs are definitely necessary if you want the AC on overnight.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel - it's wonderful. Thank you so much for a perfect stay on Ko Lanta.

Lanta Mermaid Boutique House Hotel was a very good and stylish hotel near the beach and near Ban Saladan. I had a very enjoyable 3 days staying there and I felt welcomed. I rented a motorbike which was brought to the hotel and the price was reasonable as was the price of the hotel too. The owners organised me a place in a minivan to Ao Nang, Krabi, when I left. So everything was very easy. A very good holiday experience. Thank you! I hope it wasn't my last time in Lanta...
