Settha Palace
Vientiane

Arguably the best luxury boutique hotel in Vientiane, Settha Palace lies in a prime position and emits a sophisticated French colonial air.

This historic hotel was built in the 1930's and was recently extensively restored to its former glory: high ceilings, large airy rooms and striking wide wooden staircases give it a sense of grandeur, and the beautiful large pool outside, surrounded by tropical leaves and a lush garden, is an impressive sight in itself.

With under 30 rooms, this cosy hotel feels intimate and homely. The 23 Deluxe Rooms are reminiscent of Thirties Indochina with their polished rosewood four poster beds, elegant lamps and en suite marble bathrooms. The two Executive Suites and single Junior Suite come with spacious living rooms, in which you can take a seat and rest in peace and privacy at the end of the day.

We recommend enjoying a drink in the classical La Belle Epoque Lounge Bar, before dining at the Belle Epoque Brasserie on international or traditional fare. A varied selection of wine compliments the cuisine served here, as does the cosmopolitan atmosphere that surrounds you.

While it is Settha Palace one of the smartest hotels in the city, it is worth noting that service, food and décor have been known to miss the mark from time to time. However, any shortcomings are quickly forgiven when one sees the inviting pool! Plus, its central location just on the edge of Old Town means that this property provides easy access to a number of nearby restaurants and is a short drive from the most popular cultural sites.

Client Testimonials

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
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
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
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, 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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
