The Perfect Morning
An ideal day at the Mermaid Resort starts with sunrise and the banter of birds. Get up early, order some morning tea, and head to the west-facing part of the resort and jump onto the sand of the beach. Walk along the sandbar to the nearby island, lay down on a towel or on the sand, look for seashells, and drink in the ocean view.
Then, visit our breakfast bar for a diverse, healthy first meal of the day. We offer fresh juices and fruit salads, pancakes, local honey, paratha and roti, a potato curry, and your choice of eggs.
Have a hot shower, and spend the mid-morning reading your favourite book on your private verandah. Room service is just a phone call away. If you want some ideas of other fun around Cox’s Bazaar, visit reception and talk with our staff. There are plenty of things to do at and around the resort.
Mermaid has extensive experience in organising tours for its guests. We can happily help you find fun at the Buddhist village Ramu, Inani beach, Himchori, or even south in Teknaf, where the Cox’s Bazaar beach ends and the Naf river divides Bangladesh and Myanmar.
For lunch, we highly recommend that you head back to our restaurant for some of the finest seafood in Cox’s Bazaar. Speak with Raju, our head chef and the pilot of your culinary experience. And definitely try the spiced pomfret.
Our seafood is brought in fresh every morning. And many of the fruits and vegetables on your plate have been grown organically right here on Mermaid land.
Restaurant, Food, Breakfast, Picnic
Organic, local and healthy are the cornerstones of Mermaid’s open kitchen philosophies. We do not rush our delicate preparations, nor do we compromise on sourcing the freshest ingredients directly from the villages and farms surrounding our properties. Taste the difference of enjoying a meal surrounded by nature. Feel free to enter our modern kitchen and watch our specialized chefs at work. Inspired by Carlo Petrini, our resort believes in the philosophy of Slow Food.
