Excellent service, gorgeous view, comfortable bed
We felt so welcomed, we liked food, service, view and atmosphere so much - we've extended our stay for 2 extra days! My husband has back problems and is a very light sleeper, he liked the mattress a lot: it doesn't shake when I turn and he doesn't wake up. The view is gorgeous! We could just lay in bed and admire it all day long. Staff is super helpful! Really, really I never felt do comfortable and so welcomed in any hotel. I also enjoyed the design, I named it modern primitivizm :) Pool is not too big, but can be used for laps. The beach is 5 minutes walk from hotel, and it is a better and cleaner beach then one we had in Koh Samui. It is sandy, with gradual descend, sometimes it has waves - and it's lot's of fun even for adults. I've ordered oil massage in hotel and it was amazing, so relaxing, I still begin to breath deeply, just by remembering it. The time I've ordered Thai massage, and I liked oil better. The hotel located sort of at the edge of a small village, about 6 km from national park (we walked there - it can be done, but very hard, especially if you only took one water bottle), so if you like a lot of excitement, shopping, city life - it's not for you, for everyone else - it's excellent!

Beautiful hotel and location!
This hotel is amazing, and the staff is very polite and organized. The food here is really delicious with a nice selection of wine (kept well) and Belgian beers.

Getting away does not mean exile
Hotel room and hotel itself was very nice. The pool/lounge area was superb and tranquil. Air conditioning was binary and would have been much better if it was a variable speed motor instead of being too cold or just blowing humid air. Food options at the hotel were limited and below par. All the local establishments were barely edible, and one of them gave us severe food poisoning. Anything worth visiting was at least a 15-25 minute taxi ride, and taxis and food were highly overpriced. In a remote area like Ko Lanta, spend the extra money and go to a higher end resort where one doesn't need to leave to get supplies or food.

Outstanding stay
The Houben is the perfect hotel for those wanting personalized and world-class service. There are only 15 rooms, so you really get to know the staff and they you. The staff (particularly Shana and Yindee) go above and beyond ot make sure your stay is confortable. They even booked all of our activities and transportation issues for us, so there is literally no stress. The location is gorgeous, quiet, and secluded. The only reason that I did not give 5 stars across the board is due to the fact that the hot water never really gets completely "hot". I am guessing that this is due to the fact that they heat their water with solar heating, so to me, the environmental benefits more than outweighs the slight inconvenience. And you are still able to have a comfortable shower, so it really did not take away from our experience at all, but I just wanted to give full disclosure. I can not recommend this hotel enough.

Excellent4.0 / 5
The room had a awful smell when we came in. We realized that it is a home fragrance they use to cover the smell of their recent renovation. The boiler was not working properly, as we had unstable hot/cold water during the evening. The Wifi was great and the room was very clean. The breakfast on the first day was good, while the day after was horrible.
