We arrived at the Houben having just left a 6 star property elsewhere in Thailand, and so I thought no way am I going to be pleased with this property. I was wrong.
The property is simple and beautiful, with a gorgeous view. The rooms are large with lots of storage space, and have all the necessities, the bed huge and very comfortable for a picky sleeper like me.
It's always quiet and there are no kids on the property.
The food at the restaurant was excellent! We had lunch and dinner there, aside from daily breakfast, and found the food to be delicious and of high quality, better than most restaurants we tried in Lanta. The breakfast selection was large and had something for everyone.
Location: The hotel is perfectly situated in the best area of Lanta...the South. It's close to the best beaches, to the national park, and to the best restaurants ("same same" is a must).
Finally, the service is outstanding, yet not intrusive.
The owner's daughter, Shana, is the hardest worker I've ever met!! When we would get up in the early morning, she would already be working at the restaurant. When we would return at night after dinner and drinks, she would still be there!
All our needs were taken care of. The hotel made some great dinner recommendations, and on one occasion the owner even drove us to the restaurant!
The hotel is excellent value for money, and after exploring the island, we have not come across any other properties that we liked better.
Thank you for a great 4 days, the Houben!
