Situated at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers, the historic city of Luang Prabang was once the royal capital of the Kingdom of Laos. Today, the old town centre is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is famous for its amalgamation of traditional Buddhist and French colonial cultures. Satri House is the perfect choice for those travellers drawn to Luang Prabang by its fascinating history, as it was once the residence of Laos’ Prince Souphanouvong. In 2002, it was refurbished and transformed into a luxury hotel, and today it echoes the duality of the city around it by blending a culturally sensitive design with all the luxury amenities and facilities expected of a five-star hotel. Satri House is also remarkable for its extensive collection of museum-quality artworks and antiques.
