TravelPod Member ReviewsLanta Mermaid Boutique House Ko Lanta
I spent a few days with a few friends in Ko Lanta and stayed at the Lanta Mermaid Boutique House. It was perfectly located and offered excellent service to their guests.
When we got there, we were welcomed and the staff was more than wiling to provide assistance with anything we needed during our entire stay. They made the reservations for the group I was with for our snorkeling trip, and were able to explain the best island to snorkel on (Ko Rok, not Phi Phi).
Additionally, the place was perfectly located. It was a walk across the street from a pathway that led straight to the beach. It was centrally located between the town and Long Beach (both areas had more restaurants and places to go at night).
I would highly recommend the Lanta Mermaid Boutique House for your next visit to Ko Lanta!

Fortunately some burly boat men were on hand to help lift the girls suitcases aboard …
... with a shower so big you could get lost in it and a sunken bath complete with little pillow. They had even left us little piles of rose petals next to the bath salts and bubbles to enjoy later. The toiletries provided are lovely and replaced twice per day!(I have already started hoarding! ) Mosquito repellant, dressing gowns, an umbrella and a beach bag are also provided! The water in taps and showers is all a little bit salty and so can't be drunk - plenty of bottled water ...
Once underway again it was only another hour until we docked at the old town in Koh Lanta. Koh Lanta is also an island but similar to Phuket it is connected to the mainland via a bridge as it is that close. Compared to the Islands we have been on so far Koh Lanta was massive. It has real roads and traffic, streets and a fleet of 7-Eleven's. I've enjoyed the smaller more desolate islands so Lanta was quite the culture shock having come from the tranquility of Koh ...
... where most of the shops and restaurants were was 50baht, if they didn't overcharge you. Like NapPark it was a great hostel for socialising as there was a comfy open air lounge area next to the reception, with a TV and a range of films preloaded. As the afternoon drew to a close, Amit the half Kenyan/half Indian from North London asked if anyone wanted to watch the sunset, so we went to watch the sun sink behind the sea refracting a pastel rainbow ...
