Quiet, Beautiful, Great!
Absolutely loved this quiet spot with so much wildlife and beautiful views. The little village is so cute. Our favorite things about the Houben were how quiet it is and the amazing breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely views from the pool area, out to sea, great to watch the sun go down with a cocktail at happy hour. Pity we could not watch that from our room balcony on the second floor because of the tree in front blocking the view0, this needs, pruning back. The manager was around a lot so I made this suggestion to him. Noisy air conditioner in the room, staff looked at it but made no difference, I learned to live with it switching it off in the night. They are building next door, whilst the noise did not disturb us too much, what did annoy me is the building rubbish the workers were throwing down the cliff to the sea, we as tourists have to pay 10 baht each environmental tax to keep the island clean! Seems the islanders need to learn to do the same. Overall lovely hotel, needs a little tic in places. The staff although very professional, seem to lack a sense,of happiness in their work, not many genuine smiley faces that we had experienced in other Thai hotels. Breakfast was lovely, good food. Did not have dinner here as expensive, tables put out at night but no one ate there, lots of nice restaurants a lot cheaper nearby. Would definitely stay again, but ask for a room on third floor.

Perfect couples retreat
The owner, Eric, and staff at the Houben were very kind and helpful. I will stay here again just to chat with Eric and the staff. They were very accommodating. The view at the Houben is amazing. Situated in the top of a cliff there is no beachfront but this is easily compensated for by the sunsets. Cocktails are delicious and the pool is a perfect place for relaxing. It is an adults only resort so there is plenty of peace and quiet to be had.

We had an excellent time at the Houben. Our room was large and clean. The staff was great and would bring us cold bottles of water to our room every day. Food was really good as well.

Amazing location! Little boutique hotel
The sunsets are beautiful from the poolside or balcony! Other reviews have mentioned the weak wifi, which was a bigger problem than we expected because there is no shade or A/C in any of the areas that have decent wifi (basically right beside the pool is the only place), so you get a bit sun-baked every time you go to check your phone. The service is friendly and the owner/manager is on-site every day to take care of everything!

Amazing view with beautiful rooms all facing the sea. Very nice pool and sunset views. Not a far (5min) walk from a great beach with some fun restaurants and bars.

Beautiful
Hotel absolutely perfect with the best sunsets i think we have ever seen. Bath tub on the patio was an added bonus! Room was perfect, so bright and airy and service was fab too. Food was delish and plenty other options close by if you fancy a change. Didnt have breakfast there as felt it was too expensive, 450thb seemed a lot when main evening meals were only around 300thb. Only other complaint would be the monkeys. They charged towards us a few times by the pool which wasnt pleasant but hotel staff were quick to help. Overall, amazing place and will definitely return if we go back to Koh Lanta.ps... the photo won me a bottle of wine from the hotel. Check out their Instagram competition!

Beautiful sunset with BOGOF cocktails each evening. Not enough sun loungers for all guests. Some refurbishment is needed in the rooms. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed the breakfast.
