Previously a residence of Prince Soupha-Nouvong, Satri House is a unique and historic place to stay when visiting Luang Prabang; an oasis of royal grandeur in the heart of the city. Whilst it doesn’t boast all the ‘bells and whistles’ of some of the city’s other premium hotels, the Satri House (meaning ‘House of women’) brings a touch of class seldom found in newer developments. Unquestionably, this is a serious contender for Luang Prabang’s boutique hotel crown.
Colonial-style houses surround two swimming pools and, following this theme, the bedrooms are furnished with 4-posters and charming retro touches. Thoughtfully positioned, high-quality local handicrafts instantly take you back to a bygone era - before the invention of television (although these are available upon request). There are a plethora of treatments available in the serene spa, and an open air restaurant and poolside terrace that make ideal spots for lunch or a welcome evening G&T. All-in-all, it’s rather splendid.
A short stroll away from the old town, Satri House sits tucked away in Ban That Luang district, just a ten minute drive from Luang Prabang international airport.

Discover what to expect from staying at Satri House
It’s not often you get to stay where royalty once did. When most people think of a residence for a prince, they might picture a towering castle on a hilltop or a grand palace with gold trim gates, but Satri House is different. The grandeur comes from the attention to detail in the decor, it’s charming character, and its homely demeanour. This is the complete regal experience wrapped in warm and friendly hospitality.
Hop aboard the hotel's own boat and enjoy a lazy afternoon floating down the Mekong, gazing at the rosy sky as the sun sets, or hire a private charter. Grab a complimentary bicycle and glide through the old town and neighbouring markets, filling your senses with the vibrant colours that occupy street vendor stands, listening to music as it flows through the air, and breathing in the cocktail of aromas inviting you to have a taste. Book yourself a spa treatment (or two!) and relax after a day of cycling, take a plunge into the bubbly jacuzzi, and enjoy a cold drink on the balcony overlooking your quaint surroundings.
Start off with a refreshing welcome drink in the lounge area before winding your way through the atmospheric courtyards to find your room - the perfect romantic setting for the next few days. Feel like royalty as you walk in, welcomed by the smell of lemongrass oil, and sink into the bathtub for complete relaxation. Enjoy canapes by the pool or add extra romance by dining in the private pavilion overlooking the lotus pond. To really make your special occasion stand out, charter the Satri boat overnight...
