The Houben Hotel is a modern, private boutique hotel run by a Belgian family comprising 15 sea view rooms graciously perched high above the crystal waters of the Andaman Sea. Just a short walk downhill takes guests to Kantiang Bay, the best beach on Ko Lanta island (as voted for by Trip Advisor contributors). Unique in Ko Lanta, The Houben concept combines modern, minimalist lines with a touch of Thai styling for a truly unforgettable experience.
Room choices include two Private Suites set at the front of the hotel boasting unparalleled views. Within the main building there are Deluxe or Superior Rooms which can be booked as either Twin, Double or Single occupancy. Please note that The Houben is an adult-friendly hotel and doesn’t accept bookings from groups containing children under 12.
The red themed “Red Alert” Restaurant creates dishes which perfectly blend traditional Thai and international cuisine. They offer the best selection of Thai specialties including the freshest catch of the day straight from the nearby ocean and signature desserts using imported Belgian chocolate.
The mission of The Houben is to support local and eco-friendly products from the Krabi and Ko Lanta area. At The Houben they choose their organic rice direct from a small nearby village and the fruit and vegetables are selected from a local organic farm so you can be assured that your dishes are not only tasty and healthy but support the local people too.
PLUS – The Houben is an absolutely fantastic hotel in every way – clever, stylish design yet still comfortable and sumptuous with excellent food, a great Spa and an eco-friendly ethos we heartily approve of. For us though, the “plus” about The Houben is their signature red pool. Even if you aren’t staying there, head along at the end of the day and have a cocktail or glass of wine and watch the spectacular colours of the Andaman sunset blend with the red of the pool – there’s just something magical about it. Go and take a look for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.
MINUS – The price of cocktails and Belgium Beers for the aforementioned sunset experience is quite high – think closer to European prices than Thai. But as all the spirits are imported premium mixes then a higher price is probably to be expected.
