the slick design, the attention to detail, the food, the view and the service made our stay in this hotel a great one. My only remark is the Spa; it needs to be upgraded to fit the hotel's superb quality.

Our room (202) was really spacious with a super comfy and huge bed. The bathroom was great with large walk-in shower and separate bath tub. We also had a...

On a short trip down to Koh Lanta while on vacation in Ao Nang we stayed at the houben. Excellent hotel, fantastic room, superb views, great service. With Thailand our choice of winter sunshine we definitely will be choosing a much longer stay at the houben hotel on our next visit.
