Well done to Chai, Chart and Pao for their excellent service, warmth and attention to detail. These guys run a really smooth operation with walkie talkies and all the touches of a world class hotel. Chai arranged a bike for the day, which was a brilliant way of seeing the island. Also, Chart organized our ferry trip to Phi Phi - don't worry about searching around for better deals - Chai and Co gets you very reasonable prices.

If you can, get a room facing away from the road and you might get a glimpse of the elephants being washed up on the hill.

A 5min walk to Klong Dao beach and a short bike ride to Long Beach - our favorite spot (albeit only 2 days spent on the island)

A little note for light sleepers is that if you're sleeping past 9am, you'll probably get woken up by doors shutting and guests making their way past your room. However if you up before 8.30, this shouldnt be an issue. As you can see from our rating, this was certainly not an issue and did not really affect our overall experience.

We enjoyed everything !
- Staff, lead by Mr Chaï & his wife, is always kind & taking care of you, purposing you activities. I've never been disappointed by what they advised us to do (Thaï boxing show, diving, cooking lesson, ...). And when they advise you something, it seems to be at similar or lower prices (scooter rental for example).
- Services, as laundry (announced with a 24h-last, but your clothes are ready some hours before). Beach towels are available for free, ...
- Breakfast, which both is tasty & can fulfill your stomach.
- Room, comfortable & where it was really pleasant to rest when a bit lazy.

As drawbacks, only maybe location, but it was not so much a problem. It's near a beach (just need to cross a road and walk 50m). A very little noise during the morning due to the road, but it remains quiet !

Wonderful accommodations and excellent breakfast! Stayed in a mountain view room which didn't have the street noise but we were woken up by the elephant handlers shouting commands while giving their elephants a shower which was actually super neat to watch.

Short walk to the beach, close to restaurants and bars, and short 15 min walk to Saladan pier.

Excellent service, we had laundry done, postcards mailed by their staff, and our ferry booked all through their staff. All emails were responded to promptly prior to our arrival. The only thing that I thought was unusual, was that out of the 4 stops we made in Thailand, they were the only place to charge us before we arrived, but perhaps that was to take advantage of some early booking bonus?

Loved this place, Koh Lanta has been one of our favourite stops in Thailand, and this hotel was part of the equation.

Very clean and well kept. Very nice room - western standard hotel. Great staff, very helpful. Good location. Will stay again on next visit to koh lanta, no doubt. You get exactly what you think when booking. No unpleasant surprises.

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!
