Chin L. Couples Thailand, June 14, 2015
Good room but bad policy

Red pool, Big room
The room was nice and the staffs are ok. Anyway, I'm quite disappointed about the breakfast as you only have one set with no more refill while at the same rate you would get something much more than this also with the hotel policy about outside food. The hotel location is quite isolated, good for hideaway purpose.

Fine hotel and staff - low value for money

Good layout with beautiful views, well put-together rooms with comfortable beds, friendly and helpful staff
Rating the hotel in a vacuum - apart from cost/value considerations - its a very nice boutique on a cliff-side with a bar stocked with interesting Belgian beers and very well-designed rooms. I had been to Koh Lanta several times previously, usually staying in more rustic bungalows (always a solid step above backpacker accommodation) and this was unquestionably the nicest place I've stayed. Its a bit far South, which extends travel times to other parts of the island, but also makes it a bit more remote (in a pleasant way). The beach nearest to the hotel is not particularly nice as Thai beaches go, but the next cove to the south is one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen on the island - worth the extra walk or the short hop on a moto. In a vacuum, I would give the Houben a solid 4 out of 5. My primary issue with the Houben is that its prices are steep, and if the Agoda listing is correct, outright ludicrous in-season. We were fortunate and got a very good off-season deal. It was still a bit more than I would usually pay, but all things considered I was happy to get the chance for semi-luxury accommodation at a fair price. I think the main issue is that the Houben is charging as though it were a luxury resort and it is not. We avoided the worst of that by booking with the off-season discount; however, all of the small things - moto rental, food costs, etc. were steep in light of the quality and prevailing prices at shops a few minutes walk away. I don't mind paying if something is qualitatively better, but a surcharge on readily available items, especially during low season, struck me as a little cheap. So again - very nice place, pleasant staff and certainly worth it at the off-season rate. Just consider booking airport transfer, moto rental, and purchasing food at some of the other more reasonable places nearby. If you are a "luxury traveler" (which I am clearly not) this may be of less concern, but do not expect super high-end when booking.

Lovely relaxing stay

The hilltop setting was gorgeous! Staff were so helpful and the sea facing rooms were incredible- so luxurious
We loved our stay and didn't want to leave in the end. It was so enjoyable to stay in such luxury. The staff were incredible- nothing was too much trouble. Restaurant is really good- best good we have had here. It's just a little pricey so we only ate there one night. Breakfast so good!!

I got a good rest

smiling staff, clean rooms, beside a quiet beautiful beach
i enjoyed my stay at the Houben. The rooms are clean and huge. It's modern European style, which I am still more comfortable with. The highlight of their rooms is the I can see the great paranomic ocean view every day from my balcony, especially so when the hotel is located High on a cliff. You can also relax by the pool with the same ocean view. Food is alright. Breakfast is included in the room charge and you can order various food from the menu and they will cook it for you. Wish they had more local choices on the menu. I am also glad with the serving sizes which are generous. The delightful thing about the hotel is the staff are always greeting you with a smile and seeing if they can help. Greetings to Shana and Yindee for their service. The hotel is located on Kantieng Bay, which is one of the smaller beach with a small row of shophouses. I felt I liked this place more as it is less touristy and more private, though the trade off is less souvenir shops/ places to eat. Our favorite place to eat is at the drunken sailors where both Thai and western food choices are excellent. Do try the burgers.

Great hotel!

Nice staff and wonderful hotel. Breakfast a bit small.
In one word just great!
Chris O. Couples Malaysia, October 29, 2014
Fantastic Seaview

Great seaview, beautiful sunset & simple yet nice interior design
Excellent stay (nice and quiet) but traveling time is more than 2.5 hours from Krabi airport. Wonderful seaview from our 3 floor room and sunset viewing at the pool is picture perfect.
Wenjing Z. Couples China, August 6, 2014
modern hotel but poor night shift service

modern and clean, good breakfast
We stayed two nights here. The second night the ac didn't work. And we can't open the window cos its raining heavily.and there's no screen window, otherwise there will be full of incests.One big problem is that, there's only one Thai guard who can't speak English in the whole hotel!!! No other staff. No phone call answer. We understand ac was not working, it happens. But its really scary to have nobody to ask for help. What if there's emergency?? In the end,the guard understand my bfs body language and called one of the staff. They opened a new room for us, which is nice enough. But I really think the hotel should improve their night shift. It's not a cheap hostel. Paying 3600b to get this kind of service is not satisfying. Comparing to the layana we stayed before(layana is around 5500$), theirservice is worth the price.

Great design, veiw and relaxing hotel

Great view overlook to the ocean, modern design room, and huge balcony
The room is very spacious, clean and well designed. Instead of sofa, the hotel provide huge bean bags on the balcony so we can lay down, enjoy the view, and chill out all day&night. The staffs are very friendly and helpful.
