Until we stayed at Satri House our favourite hotel was the Victoria in Siem Reap not because it was the best we’d stayed in (we’ve been lucky enough to stay in some of the top rated hotel on tripadvisor) but because of the feel. Satri House has the same vibe, it’s a relaxing luxurious retreat in a pleasant residential part of town within walking distance of the old town. The rooms were fantastic, the beds amazingly comfortable and most important of all the staff were so good. They were without exception the most friendly helpful and happy staff in a hotel we’ve come across. Oh and I mustn’t forget to mention the breakfast, superb!

If you are planning a visit to Laos (and I highly recommend you do) then stay here.

Satri-House is a romantic hide-out at the edge of Luang Prabang. The hotel is set in an old-style building, beautifully furnished in colonial style and details are paid attention to up to perfection. You are warmly welcomed by very friendly staff and can relax in the library while you are waiting for your luggage to be brought into your room. It is absolutely calm with a wide garden space, two swimming pools and different seating areas to enjoy the view and the excellent service. The food is delicious. Bicycles are provided and the old town of Luang Prabang is only fifteen minutes away. The manager is very helpful in providing advice about trips in the area. The end of June/beginning of July is perfect if you want to experience Luang Prabang without crowds but be aware that it will rain frequently. On the other hand, you may not want to leave your room in this hotel anyway.

Room Tip: A room with direct access to the garden is especially nice.

This property continues to improve and impress. To fully love this hotel you:

need to enjoy your own company
revel in peace and quiet
love to be surrounded with objet d'art and antiques

if the above appeals, read on.

Satri House is a blend of old structures and sympathetic new construction. Gardens are beautiful and there a re lots of places to sit (or lie) and enjoy the sub-tropical warmth. Rooms and suites are well thought out. We had one of the Satri suites but the smaller suites and rooms are spacious and very comfortable.

Two swimming pools, a small bar (excellent lychee martinis!!!!) lovely restaurant and dedicated (if unobtrusive) staff supplemented by professional, friendly and informative management complete the picture.

The hotel is also very close to one of the main Wats of Luang Prabang - if you listen around 5.20 am you will hear the monk's "alarm gong" - very useful if you wish to observe the alms procession.

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid February 2012, a special trip as part of my wife's 50th birthday vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the house and rooms - we had a junior suite - are very tastefully decorated with antique pieces of furniture throughout. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in!

The restaurant was excellent - both for breakfast and for dinner on our first and last nights. The staff were all very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. we didn't have time to try the Spa so I can't really comment on the treatments but it looked a very relaxing place

Whilst in Luang Prabang I was really quite ill with a bacterial stomach infection (very unlike me indeed). I had a fever and was really not at all well. The staff looked after me really well, cooking special meals that were more easily digested etc. They also arranged a doctor (who frankly did a better examination of me than any UK GP I've ever been treated by). All of this meant that I missed out on 24hrs of our time in Luang Prabang which was quite a chunk of our 3 day trip. We will have to go back and will definitely look to stay at Satri House....

We could not have enjoyed our time in Luang Prabang more thanks to Joffrey and his special team of genuinely kind staff. For someone with sophisticated taste, yet enjoys simplicity and natural beauty, this is the place! We loved our room overlooking the lilly pond, breakfast, use of the hotel's complimentary bicycles, and most especially, just getting to know the staff! This hotel stands out as we travel 6-weeks through Southeast Asia. Despite struggling to decide between several attractive hotels in this small city, we're very glad we landed at Satri House! Very highly recommend!

Satri House was the perfect blend of style, class and service. The gardens are exquisit, with well groomed natural and potted plants, flowers, stretches of grass and ponds with fish and turtles. The rooms are classy with the warmth of wood floors and 4-post beds, large bathroom and lots of natural light from ample windows. The lap pool and regular swim pool are well kept, and a special treat as swimming pools are rare in Luang Prabang hotels. The greeting team were immediately helpful suggesting places to visit or eat in town; while The Satri House menu also offers a rich array of choices for reasonable prices. Ms Mem, a native of Luang Prabang is one of the hosts providing zest, delight and insight along with great guidance. General Manager Joffrey Gris has a wonderful presence, greets all his guests, and gives one the sense of being at home at this wonderful 'retreat' like complex, just near enough and far enough from the center of town. Bikes or a tuk-tuk are freely provided. In one word: elegance.

Room Tip: Second floor room overlooking lappool and garden was great.

This stunning boutique hotel is located about 10 mins walk from the main street of Luang Prabang. Rooms are very nicely appointed with beautiful pieces of furniture. 2 Great pools set in a lovely green garden. The hotel is made up of 6 houses all quite unique, another is under construction. Breakfast is great and the main restaurant is excellent-food and atmosphere.
The BEST thing is the staff- from Joffrey and Audrey to Mrs Mem, and the sensational Lao staff- they are so kind and very accommodating.
