We enjoyed very much during our stay in the hotel. Clean, silent and very comfortable. Very good location with an amazing view. Rich breakfast, hospitable staff and management. The beach is 10 mins walk and it is simply beautiful. The hotel offers you everything you need as a couple.

We spent 4 nights in Ko Lanta at The Houben for the final leg of our honeymoon and were very pleased with our stay there. It ended up being our favorite part of the holiday due to what the hotel and the island had to offer. Some points about The Houben: it's very clean and tidy, the rooms are well... More

My wife and I stayed at The Houben for five nights towards the end of March but wished we had stayed longer. We absolutely loved everything about this place, its location, its architecture but especially the staff who do everything to make your stay special. The hotel is located at the northern end of Kantiang Bay which has a stunning... More

We spent 7 nights in The Houben and overall, it was a great hotel. We would definitely return. Summary of the pro's and con's: Pro's 1. Breakfast was great, even though the menu choices were the same everyday. We were happy to try different dishes everyday, with the occasional repeats of the local Thai breakfast of flat noodle soup because... More

My husband and I spent four nights here in January and had an amazing time. The staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was fresh and yummy, and the pool was wonderful. The biggest pros to the hotel were: - Very quiet (small number of rooms = less noise!) - GORGEOUS view and sunset - Pool is wonderful and relaxing -... More

I have a very good experience. The hotel have a very nice room, great view, with variety of breakfast. I love to wake up early in the morning to see a beautiful view from 3rd floor room. The another best thing is drinking a cool beer in a red pool to see sunset with my wife. Super Perfect for Couples.... More

We stayed at The Houben in February 2014 as part of our honeymoon. We absolutely loved this hotel, the staff are all so lovely and friendly and very helpful, Shana was brilliant and if she's cooking you should try her tomato soup! yummy. The breakfast is so good, so much choice and really tasty. The hotel is lovely, our room... More

We stayed with another couple here, and loved it. Great service, breakfast and what a view! Koh Lanta was my favourite island by far. We did get a noise complaint one night at 7pm as the boys love to have a laugh, which was a little offputting but it is a very quiet and small hotel. i wouldnt stay here... More

Myself and my partner visited the Houben last July and had an absolutely amazing stay. Ko Lanta is a quiet island and if you are looking to get away from everything it's the perfect place to go. The staff go over and above on every occasion and make you feel extremely welcome. It is a small hotel that offers privacy... More
