“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

Simply put, the Mermaid offers an incredible level of personalized service, comfortable rooms, delicious food, and a warm welcome that is just impossible to beat. I travel quite frequently; I spend about 60 nights a year in hotel rooms on various continents. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've never experienced such friendly service as at the Mermaid. Here are some more details:

Location: It's right across the street from Klong Dao beach, and it's just 2 miles south of Ban Saladan, Koh Lanta's main town. A short stroll brings you to the 2-mile-long white-sand beach, replete with plenty of restaurants, beach massage stations, convenience marts, and so on. The location is wonderfully quiet.

Rooms: The seaview deluxe rooms are impeccably clean, like the rest of the hotel. The beds are wide and comfortable, the interior design is clean, tasteful, and refined, and the balconies look right out over the beach and ocean. You can watch beautiful sunsets right from your room.

Food: The breakfasts are unbeatable. They include fresh fruit, toast with butter and fruit preserves, coffee and tea, bacon and eggs cooked-to-order, and even pancakes, muesli, and corn flakes. Everything was delicious. The breakfasts were so large that sometimes we didn't even have room for lunch.

Service: Mr. Chai and his staff remembered us by name, even though it had been 2 years since our last visit. And how's this for personalized service: 2 years ago, we had requested an extra in-room chair and an extra in-room lamp. Mr. Chai remembered this, and had an extra chair and lamp already in our room. On top of that, you will not find a warmer, friendlier, more helpful host than Mr. Chai and his staff.

Other: The hotel is happy to arrange anything you need during your stay, from laundry (a mere 50THB or $1.60 per kilo of laundry), to airport transfers (private or shared taxis), to island tours and motor scooter rental. Our motor scooter (just $10/day and worth every penny) was waiting when we arrived, and our airport transfers were arranged for us. Extremely helpful.

To put it simply: Stay at the Mermaid. You'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: The seaview rooms offer beautiful views over the ocean and are worth the slight extra money. The flo...

Lanta Mermaid proved to be the perfect choice for staying in Koh Lanta! The service was the best I've ever had! From the first day, the staff remembered us by name and treated us as though we were old friends! They always ensured that we had everything we needed and were always thrilled to offer help with booking tours and locating restaurants and services along the beach. They even remembered our breakfast orders and the made-to-order breakfast (coffee, fresh juice, fresh fruit, toast, bacon, sausage, eggs cooked however you like, pancakes, cereal, and yogurt) was one of my favorite parts of the stay! You couldn't ask for better service! Staying at the Lanta Mermaid ensured that our vacation was as relaxing and care-free as possible!

Incredible value for money, staff absolutely fantastic, idylic beach. Brilliant breakfast cooked to order each morning. Glad we are staying for 7 days. If you are going to Koh Lanta this is the place to stay at. I am writing this review whilst still at the Hotel and I have never done such a thing before but felt compelled to do so.

The staff:
Some of the most helpful people I've met. As soon as we arrived they pointed out brochures for their best recommendations for excursions: elephant trekking, walking through the jungle, kayaking, feeding monkeys, Thai cooking classes, and more. The hotel has good relationships with the people who run these excursions and I think that plays a valuable role. At the (included) breakfast each morning, they come and take your order and bring you something delicious in return. On the second day I asked for a glass of water and for the rest of the week they remembered that I would appreciate a glass of water alongside my fresh orange juice. Perfect. Probably one of the most helpful things was that when you want to book an excursion, you can just tell the staff and they will take care of everything for you, including being picked up and dropped back off at the hotel.

The location:
The beach is right across the street. It's not overcrowded, and at this spot, the sun sets right behind the water, in the center of the horizon. The street is not over-crowded or busy, but there are still plenty of places to get sunscreen, snacks, dinner, shopping, ice cream, medicine, ATMs, you name it.

The beach:
There is a lot to do along the beach,but there was plenty of space for everyone. We had a lot of fun digging for starfish and throwing them back in the water for our morning of "save the starfish," It was a good beach for running if you're into that. It was beautiful and clean and clear. A few jellyfish but nothing terrible.

The fun:
All the excursions we went on were amazing, and very reasonably priced. Along the beach, there is plenty to do. Thai massages, paddle board and other water-sport rentals, more shopping, more restaurants, and fish spas (a very ticklish 20 minutes. Not sure if it helped my feet but it was worth the experience. I got a pedicure afterwards anyway).

All in all, I have every intention of going back when I can. The hotel is nice and clean, in great spot and there are great people taking care of you. At a time when my friends and I needed fresh clean air and relaxation the most, we got it all right here.
