Lanta Mermaid Boutique House Hotel is an oasis in Koh Lanta, away from the hustle and bustle of city life with serene landscapes and recreational activities for guests to experience. Located on the street along Klong Dao Beach with three kilometers of white sand, Koh Lanta is divided into two islands with the most populated and commercial one being Koh Lanta Yai. It is there that guests will discover a multitude of local shops, flavorful seafood restaurants, and tour operators. Taking a trip to Lanta Old Town will provide scenic views for picture taking, a spot once famous for trading and home to an ancient community. Koh Lanta is renowned for its clear water, so guests should take their time snorkeling and diving to experience the rare beauty of the underworld. For night entertainment, a fire dancing performance is a unique part of Lanta culture, creating sparkles of light in the night sky. Lanta Mermaid Boutique House Hotel is set in paradise as an escape from the sometimes hectic city life.
"Overall lovely place and friendly staff."

The hotel and the rooms are clean, the staff is really nice. It’s located on the main road from the port but it’s quite close to the beach and the hotel provides a beach towel. Would definitely come back.
Excellent hotel! Great service!”
Everything went well, smooth check in, the hotel is super clean. Room is very comfortable and neat. The staff is friendly. The beach is 3 minute walking distance and not crowded. I will absolutely recommend this hotel.
Everything about the place was fantastic from rooms, bedding, bathroom, air conditioning, electric kettle and mini fridge, and the little balcony. Only suggestion for improvement would be that the breakfast could have better options especially Thai options. Even the western fare could be much better.
To noise directly on the main road!”
The hotel as self is nice and especially very very clean ! The Staff is friendly and helps the guest wherever possible! BUT you will get no sleep in this hotel. The hotel is directly located on the Main Road / Highway. The noise of the traffic and specially of the noise Motorbikes make sleeping impossible. Even in the night the noise of the Thai Motorbikes is like hell. There is also no speed restriction on the road and you have the feeling that races happen in your room. Sad to say, but under such noise traffic conditions I can not recommend this hotel. Better look for a quiet hotel far away from the Main Street.
Feels like home ”
The staff were all very sweet and made us feel welcome. The hotel had a lock on the front door after 22, that made us feel safe at night. Breakfast was made to order and with a small buffet as well. Tasty and just what you need to start the day. The room was large and very clean. The no shoes policy inside the house helped keep the floors and stairs clean. The beach is just across the road from the hotel, so it is easy to go there. The hotel is a good walk from Saladan, but transportation is everywhere if you do not want to walk.
A good gateway to Ko Lanta.”
A great place to set down your luggage rest and relax. A decent restaurant next door, great views of the jungled hill from the rooms' rear facing balconies. I'm assured the beaches are clear of plastic pollution by the time high season rolls around, but this is starting to look like are fairly major problem for the beaches of asia.
I've stayed here before, it's a tidy place and the staff (Filipino) are adept at speaking english. Rooms are clean, back rooms have a good view to a lush jungled hill. Rooms aren't huge (22sqm) and perhaps the owners might consider putting in a flatscreen TVs? Net speeds are kind of average by asian standards, but where I'm from, nets speeds are exceptional all across asia. The scooter rental is a tad expensive. The Mermaid is a good place to start, Ko Lanta is a big island with many options.
Lovely place but confirm whether you needs extra bed for extra child... we were given a smaller bed rather than the bigger room and bed which we could have used for 2 adults and one child.. a mistake with staff on check in that cost us extra at end of stay. Overall lovely place and friendly staff.. noisy road but great sea views. Night market fab with lovely cheap food and beer. Great sunsets and breakfast. DO NOT GO ELEPHANT TREKING. This is a cruel practice that continues in Thailand and causes great suffering to the elephants who are taken from their herd and beaten into submission. Please avoid and do not buy elephant products. 🙏🙏🙏
Friendly staff and clean rooms ”
Perfect location, soooo close to the beach. Perfect
Clean spacious rooms”
Nice clean hotel with reasonable price. Friendly and helpful staffs. Rooms are clean and spacious. Bedding are quite comfortable too. Good location with many eating places within walking distance. Not far from beach. Overall a good stay.
Amazing service and amenities ”
Amazing staff that helped us rent scooters, arrange excursions and transportation. Room is immaculately clean. They give you new beach towels every day which is amazing - no need to lug them down from the room, they hand you fresh ones at reception! Hotel is in a great location, walkable to the beach although we also rented a scooter to explore other parts of the island which is highly recommended. Loved this hotel, can’t think of a single fault.
This hotel was absolutely lovely! The staff were incredibly kind and helpful. They always greeted us with a smile, were very helpful in booking scooters and other tours, and they were very accommodating. The hotel is located near delicious restaurants, and is a three minute walk to the beach. It is in an ideal location to explore the island. I highly recommend this place!
Best choice for family with young kids.”
I stayed 3 nights here with my family (including my 2 young boys ,6yo & 7yo). We were impressed with the hotel tip top cleanliness. Though the hotel is not beach front, it's location is only 200m away from Klong Dao beach which makes walking to the beach easy! Klong Dao beach is an ideal beach for travellers with young kids. The sea is calm, clean and flat during our stay. The sunset here is so beautiful. We made it a point to see it everyday ! Credits should be given to the hotel staff Paul and Aica. Both of them are helpful and friendly. We always ask them to share tips where to find good local food in Ko Lanta. The few places they recommended has never let us down :)) we also got to know the hotel's friendly lady boss who is always around to ensure everything is in place. Both my boys, especially, can't wait to visit Ko Lanta again soon. And we would love to stay at this lovely hotel again ....
Great service even in low season”
Went there during low season (September), it was raining every day! But the hotel staff make was so lovely and helpful, making sure we have a good stay. They helped us arranged for local tour around the island at a reasonable price. Will come next time, not during low season of course
Excellent boutique hotel in Ko Lanta”
Came across Lanta Mermaid, and was immediately impressed by the positive reviews it had received. Two other things struck me from the reviews; everyone talked about 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 with all of this. The other thing we noticed was how everyone talked about “the rules” which are presented to guests upon arrival. Sure, they want to make sure you keep things nice and tidy, and they insist on a 2000THB deposit, but that reassures me that the place will be kept well cleaned and therefore a much more comfortable and enjoyable stay. It’s literally a two-minute walk to a lovely, quiet (at least in April) beach (the first main beach from the town). The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and will assist you with transport and activities during your stay. They do a buffet breakfast which is great, although the bacon and sausage could be a little better quality. However, there is plenty of nice food to choose from, and there’s an excellent restaurant next door with really high quality, affordable Thai food. I loved it here and would definitely stay here if I were to come to Lanta again!
Very clean, well-organised, close to the beach”
This place is run with a lot of care and attention even though it's quite a modest hotel. The decor and upkeep make it feel shiny and new, and the rooms are tastefully decorated and a decen t size with TV, fridge and good shower. The staff are very helpful, speak good English and quick to fix any issues. The hotel is on the road and a 5 minute walk to Klong dao Beach
Lovely small hotel”
We stayed Mermaid for 3 night every thing is fine,circumspect serviced,nice staff.It is easy to made a booking for tour and transfer to krabi for a reasonable price. sea view room always noisy at the day time
good location good service”
very professional people, clean room, nice bed. we first get a bit surprise when we got a list of rules to follow at our arrival and a 4000bhts deposite. but after that, we just have enjoy our stay. helpful staff, nice breakfast, you're very close to the beach, just cross a street and walk 100m, you arrive on nice view and lil bar and restaurant!
Lovely boutique hotel”
We booked 2 rooms. Everything we asked for was prepared. They were even thoughful about babies and left a 'diaper bin' outside the room and cleaned daily. Room was very clean. Mineral water replenished daily. Breakfast was very good, healthy and personalised! Beach is just across the road, although we didnt get the chance to dip in due to activities planned beforehand. Beach towels, mat and body boards are available without rental. Overall, a very nice and quiet place to stay - and close to Saladan town as well :)
Family like service in a very good location”
I had come here with great expectation having hear so much good things from reviews. All I say is everything are true. This hotel serves you like a member of a big family and always went one step further to assist you. I've been a recipient couple of times myself. Chai is a superman and appears whenever help is needed. It's located right at Klong Dao, short distance to Saladan and the beach across the road has the finest sand on the island. Many bars and restaurants around the area.
