Mermaid Hotel

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Nestled in a vast coconut grove, the Mermaid Hotel & Club offers a haven for sun, sea and sand lovers. Overlooking a beautiful stretch of beach, the hotel is reserved for rest and relaxation. There's not one but two swimming pools to splash about in, a fitness centre for the body conscious and a spa with sauna, steam rooms and Jacuzzi. The main restaurant overlooks the gardens and has an al-fresco section for making the most of sunny days and warm evenings. Enjoy a romantic dinner for two or tuck into the hearty buffet, with a sublime selection of seafood available daily. Four bars will also tempt you, especially the beach bar situated amidst coconut palm gardens and the restaurant bar with its snooker table. Evenings can be spent quietly or strolling in the moonlight alternatively, there's live music, to keep you entertained.
