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 …
... would we ever get the chance to do this in the west? IT would never be allowed due to health & safety concerns…. We stayed quite late and made it out all in one piece. The next day we took the boat back to Phuket and Fabian (or technically his dad, who had insisted… Så om du laser det här Jacob, tack så mycket! Det var en väldigt uppskattad tjänst!) treated me for dinner at a very nice restaurant in town and we then went to bed quite early as ...
Today we set our alarms for 8.15 am so we could get up and go to the yoga on the beach... We decided to scrap that idea and sleep till 10 instead. Ellen and Hanna are always up and organised earlier than us and by the time we were organised they had hired bikes and were cycling around the island. Koh Lanta has lots of different beaches and jungle treks and the best way to see the island is by renting ...
... sat down and had a drink with literally no one around but a small family next door and the Thai couple that owned the shop and their young son. The young boy was intrigued with a family of white people playing with their cameras, so trying to communicate with a boy who was just about of speaking age in a foreign language was going to be difficult so I just brought the boy a pack of sweets and his face lit up.

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!
