This hotel is exactly what you need if you are interested in quiet and relaxation. It is not a big resort. It's a comfortable boutique hotel. The room is spacious and clean with a great view of the sea. The bed and pillows are exceptionally comfortable. Even better than our bed at home. The morning breakfast was great with several...

We had a deluxe room here at the Houben hotel. What I really like about it is how high the ceiling is, which makes the room look much more spacious. They also have a jacuzzi in the bathroom. The hotel has a nice ocean view. When we went there, it was 2000 something baht per night, really affordable. It was...

This hotel is amazing, we stayed in one of the suites for 6 nights. Shana and the team were amazingly attentive and kind. The suite was definitely worth the extra money with the outside jacuzzi bath. We loved the red pool, we swam every day. We ate and drank several times at the hotel, and couldn't fault the food or...

Myself and my partner stayed here for 5 days and the only thing we wished is that we stayed here longer. This is a small hotel with 15 rooms all superbly decorated and the facilities are excellent. We stayed in a room with a hot tub which we loved and was great to put cool water in and relax taking...

Loved the policy of no under 12 year olds. This attracted me to booking as I was travelling with my elderly mother (90). We had a ground floor spacious room where we could walk directly out and 3 metres into the pool where we swam each day. Most people there were couples so it was quiet with about 7-8 rooms...

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Houben for four nights and we absolutely loved it. The room is spacious and modern and the entire hotel has amazing views of the Andaman Sea from atop a gorgeous cliff. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. All around, we could not recommend the hotel enough. Red Alert, the hotel's restaurant, provides...

Stayed at Houben for 5 wonderful days with family (two couples) and no kids - spacious modern rooms with great ocean views, relatively isolated, calm and a relaxed atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, good facilities.
