This Danish-managed resort is incredibly popular with Scandinavian families and has a dizzying selection of rooms, but can get quiet during the low season.

Photo of The Little Mermaid Resort
There are 23 bungalow rooms surrounding the pool motel-style, and another 17 rooms in the adjoining guesthouse building. All rooms are fitted with a king-sized bed (the luxury suites have two), air-con, a mini-bar, and a healthy selection of satellite TV channels, including Disney. During school holidays the pool area usually resembles a playground of boisterous blonde children, but parents keep a watchful eye from a sun lounger or the poolside bar. In low season, the pool is often empty and the water’s sea green colour is a bit of a turn-off. The restaurant serves lots of kid-friendly fare like burgers, pasta, and toned-down Thai food, plus does a decent buffet breakfast spread and hosts poolside barbecue parties. The friendly, professional staff are great with kids and can arrange outings like elephant treks for the family. The Little Mermaid’s rates are very reasonable, even during peak season, making this a top pick for both families on a budget and backpackers. It’s quite a hike to the beaches, but The Little Mermaid is a fine budget spot in Kata.
