“Very nice place too stay but avoid beachview rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

We stayed here for four nights in February and thought that it was a good place to stay, despite not having the promised view. Rooms and breakfast were excellent and the service was friendly and helpful. We paid extra to stay in a room with a 'sweeping view of the beach' but it was nothing of the sort-just a view of a very busy road (see photo). The beach is 300m away down a track opposite the building and the town is 2km away which you can walk in 20mins.Compared to other Thai guesthouses it was a bit pricey and if you want to be nearer to the beach there is plenty of choice.
If you decide to stay here book a cheaper mountain view room at the back and it will be quieter.

Room Tip: Pick a cheaper and quieter room at the back

The Lanta Mermaid is a great hotel with beautiful rooms (complete with balcony). It was the perfect place to stay for the four nights I visited Koh Lanta by myself........ I would very happily return for a much longer stay in the future. Among the details that made it so nice for a relaxing stay were: the friendly, professional staff, the scrupulously clean room and bathroom, the luxurious breakfast (tropical fruit, wholemeal toast, bacon, museli, yogurt, eggs, coffee and pancakes for 150 baht), the rainforest covered hillside behind the hotel with bird noises first thing in the morning, and the totally reliable wi fi connection. Although not being on the beach might seem like a disadvantage, it is no big deal at all and the distance is only about 200 metres.

This was our first time in Krabi, and decided to stay 2 nights at Koh Lanta, after reading so much about it. Koh Lanta definitely did not disappoint, neither did Lanta Mermaid! Though Lanta Mermaid is not located on the beach itself, it took us less than 5 minutes to walk from the hotel to Klong Dao beach (which is amazing as well!). The owner was extremely hospitable, and helped us make arrangements for the our activities (four island tour, elephant trekking, transport to aonang) and took really good care of us! There was free wifi in the room and the breakfast was scrumptious! Would definitely stay here again when I come back to Krabi (:

My husband and I stopped in for 4 nights at the Lanta Mermaid during our month-long trip to Thailand. The hotel room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfy. The daily breakfast was delicious and they had the best toast we ate in Thailand. The owners of the hotel are superb! They helped us book a few excursions for while we were there and they were extremely helpful! The hotel is right across the street from a beautiful, low-key beach with a restaurant that served all kinds of food. We highly recommend staying at the Mermaid!
