Overview

Once the royal residence of the last Prince of Laos, Satri House is now a UNESCO heritage site located right in the heart of Luang Prabang. This beautiful, historic residence was tastefully refurbished in 2002, and further expanded in 2008 when 6 colonial-style buildings were added. Scattered with antique objets d’art, the property combines a traditional feel with fresh, contemporary touches and has a relaxed, ‘home from home’ feel. There are two outdoor swimming pools and a bar set in pretty gardens, an inviting spa with jacuzzi, plunge pool and steam room, and a library.

The accommodation comprises 28 rooms plus the majestic Satri Suite which houses 3 rooms once occupied by Prince Souphanouvong himself. The Satri Suite is conveniently located right in front of the main swimming pool and is the centrepiece of the whole residence, combining luxury with cosy creature comforts and boasting more space and greater privacy than other rooms. There are 14 Deluxe Rooms which house large bathrooms with rain showers and separate toilets, air conditioning, fans, mini-bars, telephones and free Wi-Fi connection – most of them have a private balcony or patio. The 14 Junior Suites offer more space than their Deluxe counterparts, and include a large bathroom with a bath and separate walk-in shower.

Satri House’s central Luang Prapang location only adds to its charm. During festive seasons, music can be heard playing in the neighbouring market and bikes are available to hire at the front desk, although note that they can’t be reserved in advance. The town is set against a stunning backdrop of mountains and waterfalls, with the impressive natural surroundings offering up a variety of cycling and hiking adventures. There are also no less than 33 temples, or ‘Wats’, to explore, and early risers can take part in the Alms Giving ceremony in town every morning.

Children are welcome at Satri House. Those under three years of age can share a room with their parents free of charge, but families with older children are obliged to pay an additional age-dependent fee for an extra rollaway bed. Complimentary baby cots are available on request, although note that only one extra rollaway bed is allowed per room.

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.
