Satri House
Luang Prabang

Located in the heart of Luang Prabang, Satri House was built at the turn of the last century as a residence for the royal family (1904). Formerly the childhood home of Prince Souphanouvong, Satri House opened as a small boutique hotel in 2002 after a thorough refurbishment and renovation. The original house has been lovingly restored and carefully enlarged over the years, so there are now two houses interconnected by a weave of corridors.

As you would expect from a former royal residence, Satri House is an example of understated elegance; all white washed exteriors, dark wood shutters, green lawns and lush tropical gardens. Interiors manage to successfully combine contemporary aesthetics with traditional architecure and classic design to wonderful effect. Thanks to the efforts and vision of its creator, Satri House radiates eclectic taste to say the least as every item has been handpicked over the years to make the place feel intimate and homely.

Satri House has three room categories; Deluxe Room (which makes up for its lack of a bath with an outside area and a balcony), Junior Suite (home to a slightly bigger bathroom, including a bath), and Satri House Suite (which comes with arguably the most striking colonial-style furnishings). The boutique hotel’s 31 bedrooms have high ceilings and tasteful wooden furniture and antiques, and many come with atmospheric four poster beds romantically draped with mosquito nets. Facilities include an in-house restaurant serving predominantly Asian fusion cuisine, where guests can get a taste of local dishes in the comfort of their own hotel. There is also a scenic garden bar, tranquil library, and calming Bijou spa. A huge draw of Satri House is its beautiful outdoor swimming pool, where Panama hats are considerately placed upon each of the sun loungers – it’s little touches like these that we believe make this hotel special.

Its characterful beauty, quiet location and close proximity to the Mekong Riverfronts and night market (just a mere 10 minutes’ walk away) make this hotel a good choice for most, however we do not highly recommend it to those that would struggle with multiple steps – as there are many!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
