Lanta Mermaid Boutique House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This hotel is kept at a very high standard.
The rooms were spacious and very clean.

The owner was very well organised and sorted out all our trips and transfers for us, making life very easy and relaxing.

Beech towels and mats were provide free to borrow and it was only a 2 min walk to the beech, just over the road.

Plenty of restaurants and bars and things to do in the area. We went on a trip to koh rocks which was enjoyable.

Breakfast was very nice and plenty of it.

I would recommend if your staying in koh lanta to stay on the Mermaid

We stayed at the Lanta Mermaid in December 2013 (5 nights). The hotel is immaculate, the staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious. We needed to book a ferry to continue to Koh Jum and they sorted everything out for us. The laundry service was also excellent. The hotel felt very traditional and it is quiet, perfect for a relaxing trip to Koh Lanta! It is set back from the beach and you need to cross a main road to access the beach, but we didn't have any problems with this. Really great value and a lovely stay!

I loved my stay at Lanta Mermaid (6 nights). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room were very clean and modern and the breakfast was very good. I don't have anything negative to say about this hotel. I plan to go back to Koh Lanta and I will for sure stay there again.
The owner Chai will help you with any bookings that you need on the best way possible.
Of all the good services provided what I got really touched when twice they prepared a box with breakfast for me because I had to leave very early in the morning. By the way, they always called by my name, which I found very special.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Lanta Mermaid. It is definitely a boutique experience. The owner(?) Chai is incredibly professional, courteous and able to handle everything you need with ease and a smile. Need reservations for the ferry? He'll handle it for you. A scooter for the day? Consider it done. Want to know the best place for a massage? He'll have them waiting for you when you arrive.

The hotel itself is great. An interesting blend of modern and casual. Please note: there are no elevators. We stayed on the 4th floor and had no problems - but if you are uncomfortable with (or unable to manage) several flights of stairs, be sure to request a main floor room.

Whether you chose ocean side, with wonderful views of the sunsets over the water, or mountain side, with gorgeous sunrises over the lush trees, you're balcony will be a lovely little getaway for relaxation.

Avail yourself of the free breakfast downstairs every morning. The staff are as wonderful as Chai and the fresh fruit and freshly-squeezed juices are a wonderful compliment to the coffee and breakfast menu.

Highest recommendation!

Room Tip: 4 Stories. No elevators. If you are fit, the upper floors are wonderful. If you have difficulty walk...

Really loved our stay @ Mermaid. The staff are exceptional, friendly and helpful. They offer great advice and book anything and everything on your behalf, including tours, transfers etc. Good value all around. They certainly don't take advantage of tourists and always do their best. Rooms are well kept and the location is very central. Would be great if they had a pool, otherwise just brilliant.

Stayed 2 nites in this hotel.
Booked thro its website directly 2 months back, fast response and everything was settled and confirmed after payment made using credit card. We booked a family room on the second floor.
Having read all the reviews from trip advisor, we are fully prepared for the rules and the deposits needed. So no surprise when Chai showed us the rules etc. we are completely ok with it.
Chai is very friendly and helpful. We arrived early and he gave us all the guidances and map on where to go and where to eat etc.... Thank you Chai..
Rooms were very clean, really clean. Rooms are big also..
Books and games available. Mat and towel for beach use available also.
American Breakfast was nice also. The staffs are very nice and helpful.
However hotel cant see the beach and is 5 mins walk to the beach, so a negative point for this stay.. If not will be perfect!!

We booked a one month holiday in Thailand with all of our stay in Karon Beach with the exception of 4 days at Lanta Mermaid in Koh Lanta. This boutique hotel is a hidden gem, tremendous service and asistance, always with a smile from all of the staff. We ended up canceling our reservations in Karon Beach and staying in Koh Lanta the remainder of our holiday. While the owner couldn't accommodate us for the whole time due to the Christmas holidays, he was able to have us stay for an additional 3 days. This hotel is in a good location, beautiful beach across the street, many restaurants around, spotless and an excellent well presented breakfast each day. High recommended.
