I've been here some years ago and has been a fantastic experience. The location is fantastic, on a cliff. View from the rooms is simply exceptional. Breakfast is very good, the owner is a great chef!

Best hotel staff ever!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Houben Hotel. The service was impeccable. Almost all the staff were able to recognize us and remembers our room numbers. They even went the extra mile to take our breakfast orders 1 day in advance so that the kitchen can be ready with our breakfast by 7am (as our flight required us to check-out by 7.30am). The view is nice and the rooms are clean. Thanks for the great experience!

briliant hotel. simply brilliant.
Had an amazing experience on lanta and this is the very best hotel I stayed on in Thailand. And there's been a few. Apart from needing a few heavier weights in the gym I have not one single complaint. Beautiful location, dramatic, contemporary architecture and styling, great food and a great team. You'll need to hire scooters to get around lanta anyway. So don't be afraid that this hotel isn't on the beach. Try it. You won't regret it.

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.
