Beautiful hotel looking over the ocean.
Simply beautiful and a quiet place to calm your soul and mind. Room was big and clean with comfy bed that u can laze around whole day. Breakfast was simple, served in a set though not buffet style.

Total satisfaction
Very good food, probably the best in Kantiang Bay except Pimalai that we did not try. Staff are very friendly, caring and helpful. Very nice rooms with beautiful seaview.

One of the best hotels I've stayed at in Thailand!
Beautiful hotel located in a quiet area close to the beach. Amazing sea view from the rooms, and you could watch the sunset from the room or the pool area every day. The rooms where nice and always clean, cleaning service twice a day and refill of water. The breakfast was superb! The drinks as well.. Staff was very helpful and friendly. High standard of everything and worth every penny! I've been to Thailand a few times and travelled around a lot, this was the best hotel experience I have had in Thailand!

Extravagant dream hotel in southern Ko Lanta
Relaxed elegant hotel with engaged personal. No direct beach access, but 5 minutes by foot to Kantiang Bay (not recommended for swimming, as it can be quite rocky during low tide). Very stylistic architecture. Nice swimming pool and pool area. Nice place if you like to relax on hotel property or the little village around. Not recommended if you like party activities.

Great small hotel
We loved the Hiouben. It was in a nice quiet location, near to town and the beach but far enough away to be very peaceful. Our suite overlooked the sea and it was very relaxing to lie on our terrace watching the sunset. Room was very nice and the staff were great. Will definitely return.

Paradise on koh Lanta
The Houben is an excellent hotel on koh Lanta. Located in the south of koh Lanta the Houben lies near excellent kantiang beach. The Hotel itself looks out over a rock bay and is located high on the rocks, so you can't go to the beach easily. The rooms are excellent, nice beds, big shower and jacuzzi. The design of the interior is smart and understated. The swimming pool is great and the restaurant serves up good food. Would recommend and definitely would like to return

Overall a great hotel perfect to relax, made to feel very welcome ,nothing to much trouble. local beach just down the hill but if you want to go further afield hire a car or bike as taxis expensive
