Satri House


Laos

Bamboo, bronze Buddhas and the built heritage of Indochine define the ingredients that have made this luscious compound, on the outskirts of Luang Prabang, so attractive.

Satri House


Laos

The style of Satri House is authentic because it started 15 years ago with a French Colonial Villa that once belonged to a member of the former royal family.

Satri House


Laos

Luang Prabang was once the capital of Laos: the spiritual capital as well as centre of government. The royal family has since been deposed but the monasteries remain. Hundreds of Saffron clad monks still participate in the early morning walk for alms: a solemn, poetic event.

Satri House


Laos

Guest rooms at Satri House are impressive in size and true to its place: a skilful blend of carved four-poster beds, hardwood floors, antique Buddhas and bright Laotian silks.

Satri House


Laos

Satri House has several places for guests to meet for drinks. There's a small bar in one of the internal courtyards as well as a cosy library, which works particularly well in winter when temperatures are quite cool at night.

Satri House


Laos

The restaurant is a special place, with lofty ceilings and ‘faux’ panelling in a soft shade of yellow, two outdoor terraces for dining al fresco, and a menu that samples the best of Laotian food.

Satri House


Laos

The view from almost anywhere in the compound is either of a courtyard, or a garden, or both. The compound also has a large lily pond and two swimming pools; a lap pool and a more traditional sized one, both tiled in exquisitely unusual emerald green tiles.

Satri House


Laos

A wall of mini Buddhas along one of the covered outdoor corridors adds to the exotic ambience, particularly at night when each pigeonhole is lit by a candle.
