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.

My husband and I came to Sri Lanka for the first time this year for our honeymoon, and we had an unforgettable journey ! " Mermaid " not very big but really cozy hotel , it was the best place to relax and enjoy ourselves. Everyone was so nice we felt like we were their family, on our last day I even cried and was already missing all of the staff members. The rooms were always cleaned, the kitchen- the variety of dishes was AMAZING! (Cheers to the cooks 👌🏻!) , each and every member of the staff always wanted to make sure that everything meets our demands. Lobby personel was very nice too ! We loved this place so much that we will definetily come back 💗💗💗 Read less

Right choice to have a relaxed stay for a busy life. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is calmful and enjoyed alot with the tasty meals. Everything was great except the guys loitering outside the hotel near the beach side were sometimes felt uncomfortable. Anyway Thank you for the hospitality.Keep it up.
