Koh Lanta is lovely, Kantieng Bay is beautiful and I firmly believe that The Houben is the best place from which to enjoy both.
As has been described many times on this site, The Houben enjoys a prime location with uninterrupted cliff-top sea views, it is strikingly modern in style and it benefits from having a manageress, and staff, who provide the kind of personal and yet unobtrusive service that you would expect in such a top class establishment.
The top-floor rooms offer fantastic views and a degree of privacy that allowed us to sleep with the curtains open and to enjoy the breath-taking sight of daybreak on the horizon – awesome.
The atmosphere at The (adults only) Houben, could be described as ‘stylish, calm and relaxing’ – it is a wonderful place to wind-down at the end of a holiday. If, no when, we begin to plan our return to Koh Lanta and Kantieng Bay, The Houben will be our first port of call.
Oh, and finally, my contribution to the ‘red pool’ debate. I’m afraid it’s a ‘no’ from me. Whilst the water is crystal clear and just about the perfect depth and temperature for a refreshing dip, the red tiles give the impression that you’re being invited for a swim in the Amazon as opposed to the Andaman. But don't let me put you off - it’s a personal preference thing I guess, and you might love it.
