Reviewed March 1, 2011

Chai and his staff run a fantastic boutique hotel, where attention is paid to every small detail. They go out of their way to ensure that you have a great stay. Our room was gorgeous - natural wood floors and high-quality bedding - and kept immaculately clean throughout our 2 week stay. I could have happily stayed here for months! Thank you so much to the entire Mermaid crew! We felt very well-cared for during our visit!

Mermaid was our third hotel at our trip to Thailand and by far the greatest! The hotel, rooms and its premises were impeccably clean (even in western standards) and nicely decorated.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and they did absolutely everything they could to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Organizing trips and transportation (no extra charges compared to any travel agency), advicing on things to do and see, recommending where to eat and just beeing generally friendly is what they do, everyday!

There were some rules for guests, for example no shoes in the rooms and cleaning your feet before getting in, but we only took them as bonus, because it helps to keep the hotel in good condition for everyone to enjoy. It is about respecting other people's property. Besides, we don't keep our shoes on at home, either!

I would say that this hotel is absolutely perfect! If only they had a pool for those lazy days you're too tired to even go to the beach...

Very good value for the price.
Just 1-2 minutes walk from the beautiful beach with cozy bars and restaurants.
Massage place and restaurant on the beach straight ahead from the hotel are highly recommended as well.

Their arrangement for the transportation was perfect.

You need to bring your own hair dryer.

We picked this hotel because of the rave reviews and we were not disappointed! Such hospitality! The sweet and friendly owners constantly stepped in to help get our taxi's ordered, point us toward a good restaurant, offer umbrella's or bug repellent, or even call the cab company back when the car didn’t arrive to see if there was a problem. This kind of help is invaluable when you don't speak the language! On our last day, the owners were also gracious enough to make special arrangements for us to have a small breakfast, because our ferry left before the kitchen opened.
The hotel is not on the beach, which is its one and only drawback. Still, the 5 minute walk to get there is not a enough to keep me from staying here again. We had family staying at the “Ocean View” which was directly on the beach, but their room was so dumpy that they immediately tried to switch to a room at the Mermaid.
Must DO #1----Hang out in a cabana at the Blue Angel Bar! Once you cut through the property in front of the Mermaid to get to the beach, you come out right at this bar. The staff is so sweet here, Song and Moises are almost always tending bar, with the occasional help from a very smiley friend who’s name I did not learn. We even ran into Mr. Smiles in town the next day and he recognized us and pointed us to some good shops!
Must DO #2----Eat at Thai Asan. The best food we ate in all our travels throughout Thailand! The place is basically an open-air shack, but the food is undeniably delicious.
DON’T - Whatever you do, don’t eat at the restaurant in front of “Ancient Realm” hotel. They had a beautiful and romantic set-up but also THE worst food we ate on the entire trip.

Lanta Mermaid is a great little artistic guesthouse, it is the kind of place that you feel could be a home on the road and the staff do welcome you like family. Chai would definitely be the dad of that family as he is always there to offer assistance but sometimes is too involved. I believe that this is because he truly wants you to have a great holiday though and takes it upon himself to ensure that, so just be prepared! The rooms are luxurious and overlook the street and rural bungalows about 300m from the beach. They all come equipped with safe, fridge, comfy large bed, television and aircon. Breakfast is included but in all honesty is a tad basic, however the hotel takes pride in it's service so do try it. There are 2 free Internet ready computers in the lobby and Chai can plan any tours/transport or further accomodation you need. Would stay again for sure.

An exeptionally clean hotel lovingly cared for by the Chai and Bee. The decor is modern Thai - our room overlooked the sea so we had the added bonus of seeing the sunset each evening! The Mermaid is situated approx 200 yards across the road to the beach with Saladan a 25 minute walk away or, alternatively, less than 5 minutes by tuk tuk.
Nightlife consists of eating and drinking on the beach being entertained by Fire Dancers!!
Chai and his staff were extremely friendly and we have no hesitation is recommending this little gem to friends and family. In fact we already have - to an American couple we met in Bangkok!!
