We stayed at The Houben for 3 nights in March and we absolutely loved it. The modern architecture, the superb location and stunning views, the relaxed atmosphere, the good food, delicious breakfast and, most of all, the welcoming and always friendly and helpful staff, made it our favourite place in Thailand. It is a small (only 15 rooms) luxury hotel...

Beautiful hotel. Very modern style. Outstanding views over the Andaman Sea. Staff really friendly and can't do enough to help, particularly Shana who never seemed to stop working and helped recover an item left on the plane at Krabi back to the hotel.
