This hotel is gorgeous! Great location. Every room overlooks the sea and some of the most majestic sunsets we've ever seen! We paid MUCH more for a fancy resort on Phi Phi, and it didn't hold a candle to The Houben! Staff was great. Breakfast was huge and custom made, not just continental or buffet. We love Belgian beers and...

Just a perfect spot on southern Ko Lanta. Spacious rooms, lovely pool and cute restaurant. The staff is excellent too. Stayed on the top floor for an amazing view of the sea, with islands in the distance. The rooms have decks and so you can perch yourself outside your room!
