What makes this hotel attractive is the affordable room price but without compromising on the facilities. Located on the Northeastern coast of Samui, the hotel is on Bang Rak Beach, known for its Big Buddha statue. None of the buildings are higher than the coconut trees, so the area retains an old world feel. Getting to the nearby islands of Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao is extremely easy with the nearby pier. The island of Samui offers numerous activities, both water and land based: diving, jungle tours, paintball, cooking and bungy jumping. Beachfront rooms with budget prices make Samui Mermaid Hotel a popular option.
