We stayed 5 nights at Satri House and really loved it! It is tucked away on the outskirts but we walked into town with ease. It is very quiet within its own very carefully maintained grounds with lush gardens and welcoming pool. You can feel the history of the hotel and it is a fine mix of older style building but modernised and extended. We stayed in room 223 which proved to be very quiet. It had its own balcony, large bed and spacious bathroom. The dark wood interiors provide a cooling effect. The breakfasts are very good with plenty of choice and constant supply of top ups. We also had a very good dinner on one night but took advantage of the many restaurants in town. The hotel is part of a French owned group and we were very well looked after by the manager and his local staff.

When we discovered this secret address 2 years ago, my wife (girlfriend back then) knew this would be the perfect place for a dreamy and magic wedding. A little fun thought that was set to become reality.
After a year long of preparation, and lots of coordination between ourselves and the lovely management and staff, all was absolutely perfect on D-day to create what has been the most amazing and happy day of our life.
Satri House is by essence a boutique hotel, in its scale and atmosphere and provides you the domestic feel that one looks for on their travel but also the very discreete but efficient assistance of friendly and smiley staff.
Our wedding happened exactly a year ago now and after having travelled the world since, whether in mexico, japan, morocco or portugal, we can definitely say that satri house is the best boutique experience we have found in the world...so far and we will definitely be back.

Tucked away on the outskirts of town, and yet still within walking distance of the centre. We stayed in a Junior Suite which was both spacious and beautifully appointed, with some lovely local antique touches. Enormous bathroom, with a lovely bath, as well as a separate shower.

Beautiful gardens, with statues in nooks and crannies giving different vistas. Quite a small pool area for the number of rooms, but beautifully clean, and only became busy late afternoon when people came back from their day tours.

We just loved everything about Luang Prabang, and this was the icing on the cake.

My husband and I loved Satri House and have recommended it to everyone we know who is on their way to Luang Prabang.. The property used to belong to one of the last of the Royal family and it has been beautifully renovated and updated to serve as a boutique hotel. It is run by a gracious and elegant lady who made sure we were super comfortable. I loved the fact that the buildings had lemongrass oil lamps as mosquito repellants. Although I normally hate scented environments, this was different; the lemongrass felt natural and was not at all intrusive. The grounds are beautifully designed - lots of nooks in which one can relax and read a book, under ceiling fans. It was calming to sit beside the lotus pond in one of gazebos. Satri House is decorated with antiques -- beautiful old sculptures, ornate lamps, and gorgeous furniture. Breakfast was delicious. Although its in the center of everything, once you step through the gate of Satri House, it feels as though you are transported back in time, light years away from modern day Asia.

My 60th birthday. Loved the netting over the bed and the window shutters that block all mosquitos light and heat out. Our accommodation is always a base to explore from. We look for a good night’s sleep, satisfying breakfast, bar and clean pool. This one ticked all those boxes plus staff helpful with transport, going rates and tour suggestions. I would not suggest that you walk to town too much to see especially if hot. Satri has free bikes and it is safe to ride even though the road seems busy cars are aware of scooters and bikes. a lot safer than Oz and you see more. The grounds, building and décor are charming but with three days sight seeing and dinning out had little time to enjoy Satri House.

I love hotels which offer ultimate luxury which are right in the thick of things. This is one of those hotels. In fact, it is linked with "Secret Places" - at least that's what the sign says. You turn into an alley off of a non-descripit street (near an Buddhist Temple) and suddenly you are in one of the most luxurious and tasteful of hotels I've every stayed in. There is complex geometry in the layout of the hotel, almost like a Chinese Garden. Two beautiful pools and a lotus pond. An incredible restaurant which serves French and Asian food at an incredible value. This is a real find!

Room Tip: They are all good. I'd ask for one near the restaurant. No issue of finding it or your room that...

Satri House is a little oasis, on a nondescript street about a 10-minute walk from Luang Prabang's main town area. The choice of hotel in LP would very much impact one's stay, and it looks like there is everything here from backpackers' hostelries and sweet and good-value guesthouses to top of the line, atmospheric resorts. For me, Satri House was the perfect choice, rustic yet oozing Colonial charm, in a setting that is almost Bali-like with lush foliage and lily ponds. The guestroom was spacious, functioned well, had an inviting four-poster bed, teak floors and lovely balcony. The food was good as well as spa services. Sure, the restaurant waitstaff can be a little bit dim at times, but they're very well-meaning and friendly, and whether at dining or reception I always got what I needed or asked for. There was a real effort by all to be accommodating. Noise was a bit of an issue with neighbours who seemed to stay up late and blast music, but a closed window seemed to handle most of it! (except for the last day when some karaoke party nearby went on all afternoon.) I was told this happens occasionally and don't let that deter you; Satri House is a very nice choice and ticks the boxes for Luang Prabang vacation in keeping with its Colonial past and guests' desire for all the modern conveniences.
