Came across Lanta Mermaid on tripadvisor, and was immediately impressed by the positive reviews it had received. Two other things struck me from the reviews; everyone talked about Mr Chai, the owner, and what “a tight ship” he runs. Service was highly rated, with some commenting that it was a 5 star service at 2 star prices. I would agree... More

The room was great - the bed was comfortable, and the balcony is good value for the price. We didn't mind that breakfast wasn't served during low season, as the owner (Chai) was a fantastic host. He was so welcoming, accommodating, and always willing to help. Even his handwritten notes to communicate when we were out and about was endearing.... More

You can't really go wrong staying at this place... The only thing it's missing is a pool! The room we had was massive and had everything we wanted including a massive balcony, which for the price was great! The beach is just across the road and it's a relatively short walk to some local restaurants (we'd recommend Time for Lime).... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here mid June for 3 nights. We read reviews saying the breakfast was great as was the cleanliness. However, when we came down our first morning for breakfast we were told that there was no breakfast option due to slow season. That was big news to us considering this is advertised as a B&B. We...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lanta Mermaid. It's a clean, modern and quiet hotel with well fitted out rooms. The shower was great and it was a really comfortable stay. We rented a moped from the hotel to explore the island which was a great way to get to more secluded beaches. The main beach was a two... More

Let's start with pros, always, even if there aren't so many at the end. The island is amazing, the people, relaxed environment, a swedish flair. Because of some reason (now I know many) this island is so popular among swedish people, they keep coming every year, there are plenty of repeaters. The good thing about it is, they are very... More

The hotel is beautiful! You can just cross the street and you will get to klong dao beach. The staff is amazing, U-sa and Mr Chai make you feel at home, they give pretty good advice about tours and places to visit and they take care of you in every way they can, lending umbrellas when raining, lending books, games,...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights the manager was very friendly an helpful, the rooms were spacious and have a nice private balcony. The hotel is in a good location for exploring the island. I strongly recommend stating here when you visit Koh Lanta.

We spent 5 nights in this hotel just before the start of the monsoon season: me, my daughter Soph and my son Tom. Sophie lives and works in Thailand and was already familiar with Koh Lanta, but it was Tom who found this particular boutique hotel (we'd already done Phuket, Bangkok and Chiang Mai) as our last place to stay...

I stayed here with my family at the end of April and can't speak highly enough about this lovely hotel. The staff always went out of their way to ensure we were well looked after. The breakfast is delicious and really good value too. It's within walking distance of Khlong Dao beach which is lovely, quiet and clean. I'd recommend... More
