We spent 3 fantastic days at The Houben. From the moment we booked, the service was amazing. Yindee was incredibly helpful in answering all of our questions and coordinating our transfers. Our room was very nice - and we had an amazing view of the sea. We ate at the hotel twice. The food was very good. Shana went above... More

Beautiful boutique hotel away from everything :) well worth the extra money!!! The view is amazing and the start is super helpful....also you can rent scooters right at the hotel to get around for the day. The photos don't even do the real view justice at all.

Many guest have already commented on the wonderful design and spectacular view. This boutique hotel is indeed a gem. We stayed in a suite and had much privacy with a personal jacuzzi. We have no problems with the service staff and they were kind and helpful without being intrusive. We had an overall nice and relaxing break. But we were... More

Dear Sue_Yin , Thank you very much for your stay and your kind feedback . Its such a very value for us to improve ourselves .

My girl friend and I stayed at the Houben for 7 days. We scored a great low season deal for one of the Suites and loved almost everything about it. The Houben is a very modern, chic yet down to earth place, well-located only a few minutes walking to Kantiang Bay, one of the most atmospheric places on Koh Lanta... More

I stayed at The Houben for 5 nights in April - WOW what a beautiful, stylish, relaxing hotel! From check-in to check-out my experience here was perfect. Shana and the staff went above and beyond to make sure my time here was nothing short of enjoyable - which I really appreciate. The rooms are large, relaxing, very clean and comfortable.... More

This hotel seems designed with romance on the mind. The views from the rooms and the pools, the intimate and quiet setting, the couples hot tubs, the discreet service. A family hotel this ain't. A couples hotel this is. Rooms are great, though a little on the minimalist side. The bathrooms are fantastic, with all sorts of small thoughtful touches... More

Great location and great staff. The food was okay, but there are different kind of restaurents nearby. We can recommend this place if you want a quiet relaxed place. Rent a scooter at the hotel and go around Koh Lanta, it was cheap.
