The Houben Hotel ( Adult Only )
Ranked #4 of 85 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The Houben is the best option to stay in Ko Lanta, 4 minutes walking from the best beach in the island. The hotel is gorgeous, very comfortable, very clean, modern, with style, marvellous swimming pool, very peaceful, and its view is really good, you can see the sea while you are getting sunbathe or drinking something.

Additionally the staff is very kind, specially Shana, always kind, able to help, and trying to make you feel at home.

I would recomend strongly to go to Ko Lanta and to stay in The Houben, perfect experience!!!!

Regars, Víctor (Madrid-Spain)

Looking at the very firts view and the location we were sure that we made a right choice. I went there in mid of Feb this year with my husband and we bothe simply loved the hotel. the hotel is located towards the south od island, but it is located in small villagewith a few restaurants. its a pretty small hotel but nice one. Beach is just few minutes walk. Rooms are large and comfortable with all facilities. Breakfast was not too good and we also suggested the concerned person to improve it. it will be good for couples but group of friends may not enjoy here.we enjoyed our stay a lot.

My fiance and I had an amazing 5 night stay at The Houben this past July. It was a very last minute jaunt to the beach when we were traveling in Bangkok. The Houben is towards the south of the island, but in a little village with a few restaurants, great little massage places and places to rent motor scooters, scuba trip operators, etc. The hotel restaurant is fantastic, but it is nice to be in a place that is not completely isolated, like some of the hotels on the island. The rooms are gorgeous and full of amenities. The view from the hotel is absolutely stunning. In one direction you get the open sea, in in the other you see the green luscious hills of Koh Lanta. There is a nice beach a mere 6-7 minute walk. It's a pretty small hotel, which we loved; we got so much personal attention and though most other rooms were occupied, we always felt like we had the place to ourselves. Would give it 6 stars if we could!

Room Tip: We booked a premium room and had a great jacuzzi in our room!

We had a wonderful week at the Houben in May and couldn't fault it. The service, led by Shana, was excellent, the room and surrounds beautiful, with everything you could possibly need to make a stay enjoyable. We meant to eat out in the surrounding areas more than we did but the restaurant food was so good that we ate our way though most of the menu while there and loved the meals so much that we organised a cooking class in their kitchen - thanks Shana! Ko Lanta is a great little area & The Houben a must visit!

We stayed 5 nights in the very beautiful, modern designed boutique hotel The Houben. Very nicely located on a cliff on the southern part of Koh Lanta Yai at Ba Kan Tiang beach. According to the locals and most travel guides this is the most beautiful beach of Koh Lanta. The beach can be reached in max 10 minutes walking.
We traveled from Trang by minibus and were dropped off in Klong Nin beach, where the owner was already waiting for us to transfer us the last 7 km.
Staff in the resort is very good and goes a long way to do everything to cater your needs. Food in the restaurant is very good as well.
The hotel has 15 rooms, 8 standard, 5 deluxe ( have jacuzzi) and 2 suites/villas. Rooms are large and very comfortable, all with splendid view over the ocean and the infinity pool. as it is a small, luxury resort it is especially suited for couples. Kids under 12 are not allowed due to the nature of the resort. For us thus was a plus.
This is really a fantastic hotel. We had a lot of fun with the Belgian owners.
We can really recommend this place!!

Wonderful hotel with an amazing cliff top view, infinity pool, friendly staff and fantastic rooms. We loved the hot tub with view out to the sea in our deluxe room. The only thing that could be improved was breakfast.
