Lanta Mermaid Boutique House
Travel Blogs from Ko Lanta
Our journey to Koh Lanta was relatively simple after the previous two trips we'd made as a foursome. Leaving Railay beach behind us we waded out to an awaiting longtail boat for the short trip out into deeper waters so we could board our direct ferry to Koh Lanta. Fortunately some burly boat men were on hand to help lift the girls suitcases aboard …
From Phuket, we traveled by ferry to Ko Lanta. Ko Lanta is a little ways from Phuket, but is notoriously less crowded and more remote than other beaches like Krabi and Ko Phi Phi. We spent most of the day taking the ferry, first to Phi Phi, and then transferring to Ko Lanta. When we got there, the weather was absolutely perfect, and we ate at a …
Having met up with our Chiang Mai buddies in Koh Phi Phi (whaddup Izzy and Jack), our twosome became a foursome as we headed to Koh Lanta! We arrived with nowhere to stay and somehow ended up in a hippy village, but who can say no to a bamboo hut for £1.80 a night?! Once you got used to the numerous cockerels, chickens, dogs and cats, it was totally rad man...peace and love. Our first day was spent comatose on a deserted beach, one of ...
... you ask? They asked if I ever had nicknames ...they liked Flash! My favorite as well!
I never did send the above update. Once I got on a roll, I just kept writing. The words kept pouring out and so I just went with it. I liked this new "tidbit" format that came out of nowhere and just wrote it all down in a flurry. As usual ignoring form, grammar, and spelling while making up words as I went along. Anyways here is the perhaps-too-honest extension of how it's ...
... Where 60+ people get off the ferry in a mad dash with suitcases and backpacks in tow, all to be met by 4 people blocking your way telling you in Thai (with a bit of English thrown in as you look at them in utter confusion) to give them 10 bhat for garbage cleanup. Who knew I had to give this money. The farangs take over the island and should have a part in keeping it somewhat cleaned up. The Thais have a saying or way of being - walk cha ...

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!
