A boutique beach hotel on Koh Lanta's striking cliffs, with breakfast, plus a lunch for longer stays
Perched on the sun-drenched cliffs that overlook the Andaman Sea in Koh
Lanta, The Houben Hotel is an intimate boutique destination. The property is home to just 15 guest rooms,
all with a stunning sea view and modern, traditionally inspired
interiors that exude luxury.
Walk a few steps down to
the hotel’s sunny terrace to slip into the infinity
pool, and walk a little way beyond the hotel grounds to find Kantieng
Bay, the perfect hideaway beach on Koh Lanta island. In the evening,
beautiful warm accents of red and orange light up this space and create
a harmonious spot for a fruity cocktail or Thai beer.
Houben snagged a spot among Koh Lanta's top five hotels on TripAdvisor and also nabbed one of the site's Travelers' Choice awards for being one of Thailand's
top 25 hotels for romance, promising your stay here will be one to remember. After all, just as with its location, the view's just better from the top.
Superior rooms feature a private balcony and are
situated just a few steps from the infinity pool, while the balcony in the Deluxe rooms
offers breathtaking views and a private Jacuzzi.
The guest rooms combine fresh tones with warming accents and Thai
textures. A single-cup gourmet coffee maker,
flat-screen TV and oversized fluffy towels add the finishing luxurious
touches to these small slices of boutique heaven.
Houben Hotel provides a breakfast of tasty treats and fresh ingredients to
start your day in Thailand. The Red Alert Bar & Restaurant serves a
variety of cuisines in the open air beside the infinity pool, including
imported Belgian foods – specially selected by the hotel’s Belgian
owners – alongside Thai specialties.
Here, you'll be able to attain relaxation to the fullest degree. The hotel offers
revitalizing spa treatments designed to de-stress you and complement Koh
Lanta's easy-going atmosphere. Massages, skincare and botanical
treatments are delivered by expert members of staff, skilled in the areas
of pampering and serenity.
The hotel is
perfectly positioned on a cliff, affording it spectacular sea views. It's also just a five-minute walk from nearby bars, restaurants
and shopping areas. Bakantiang Beach is not too far and a perfect spot
to see the horizon, with white sands between your toes.
