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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)

    The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.

    Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!

    Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good

    Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.

    Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.

    Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
