We arrived in The Houben on a rainy day after having spent a week in Railay. Railay wasn't great, so when we arrived here, we thought we were in heaven. We had a very spacious room with everything you could require. The staff is extremely friendly, a very welcome change after Railay... The food in the restaurant is great and...

Don't even know where to start with The Houben. Possibly the best hotel I've stayed in with the best service in Thailand. The rooms was fantastic, everything was spotless and the service was second to none. We were impressed by all staff but most impressed with Shana. When I asked if she was the manager she replied, 'no ma'am, I'm...

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...

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...

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....
