My partner and I stay in the one bedroom suite over a weekend getaway. The moment we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by the staff with welcome drinks and met Shana the owner's daughter. Its the low season so very few guests in the hotel. Stunning view to wake up to every morning, lovely breakfast. Shana was very helpful in every way accommodating to our needs. We rented a car and drove around the island to explore as it was the low season, not many shops and restaurants were open but what we found were more than adequate for food and drinks and chilling out on the beach. Not the right season to go if you are looking to swim in the ocean but good enough with a couple of cocktails and nice chill out music in the bars. Overall, The Houben is a young and sophisticated boutique hotel tucked away from the hustle of the town that every traveller or honeymooners would love to experience here in Krabi, Thailand. The Houben is my only choice of stay whenever I would visit Krabi again. A huge thank you to Shana and team from The Houben for making my stay a very memorable one.

Room Tip: Worth paying a little more to get the one bedroom suite

We have just returned after spending a few days at this lovely boutique hotel.
The staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
In a nice quiet area but there are places to eat great cheap food and it's only a short walk to the "why not?" Bar.
Great holiday

Excellent property, very clean and great pool area with very spacious jacuzzi.

Included breakfast is a la carte, but the food is fresh and well cooked. The staff never bothered greeting us, and my "good morning!" to them were ignored during our entire stay!?

We had dinner once at the Red Alert restaurant, the experience wasn't great. It would appear the service people actually cooked our food (because they were missing the entire time in the kitchen after we placed our order), the taste of the food was odd, and there was hair in the cocktail (which we were being asked to pay for at check-out, despite the request to remove it from our bill).

There was some confusion around the rates. You can get ~15% off by booking through another website that's linked from Agoda. Although the manager (or maybe owner) tried to explain to us around the systems, processes, etc etc etc that resulted in the "mistake", no attempt/offer was made to adjust the price of our stay. It was only $20USD difference we're talking about per night which I didn't mind paying, but it did bitter our overall experience.

Just spent 2 glorious days at this place.
Its a bit expensive by Thai Hotel standards but definitely worth the extra money.
Super clean,classy Villas perched right on the cliffs edge.
Good food at the restaurant and super friendly,helpful staff.
Really you could not ask for a better place to stay on Ko Lanta.
Recommended

Room Tip: If they are available get 1 of the 2 villas right on the cliffs edge
