Life at MBR
An ideal day at the Mermaid Beach Resort starts with sunrise and the banter of birds. Get up early, order the morning tea, and head to the west-facing part of the resort, 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. Then have a hot shower and spend the mid-morning reading your favourite books on your private veranda. Room service is just a phone call away. If you want some ideas of other fun around Cox’s Bazar, visit reception and talk with our staff. There are plenty of things to do at and around the resort.
MBR has extensive experience in organising tours for its guests. It 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.
Sunset at our resort can be a hypnotic experience, so don’t miss it. Bring your iPod to our reception area, and ask our staff to put on some tunes on our sound system. Once the sun is down, the pathways of the resort come alive with the humorous sounds of chatting frogs.
During a candlelit dinner, try out the calamari rings, our customers’ favourite stuff chicken breast, and a banana and Nutella pancake. Finally, head to bed and enjoy the comfort of a spacious, air-conditioned room with a flat screen TV with cable network and wake up feeling years younger.
