Warning - not the hotel's fault but getting it out there. We arrived expecting a laid back, step back in time, location. It would have been like this had it not been new year (April 14th-16th). It was an exciting time to be there but please be prepared as it turns into Falaraki (wild Greek resort) during these dates. You... More

The hotel is beautifully situated down the road from the main hustle and bustle of the town. It is only a short walk to the market stalls and restaurants as well as the local mountain where, if you are energetic, you can climb to the to for some great views over the city and Mekong river. In the evening it... More

We had a huge room just down the hall from the front desk, easily could have slept 12 people. The bed was a big king and the... More

This hotel in Luang Prabang very much suits our preference for hospitality and local culture when we travel. It is nicely designed and decorated, and provided everything we needed. The location is in the quieter zone of the main boulevard where you can watch the activities of this wonderful and historic small city: monks filing through for their morning alms,... More

I arrived at the Villa Santi after dark. I enjoyed the five-course dinner in the hotel dining room. It was fun to try out the tub before having a good night's sleep. Before breakfast, I took photos on an early morning walk around the hotel grounds.

This hotel is one of the former residences of the royal family. A good property. There isn't any lift. If your rooms are on the first floor then be prepared to climb the steep staircase. Those having a knee problem suggest that you ask for a room on the ground floor. The buffet breakfast is of reasonably good quality. The... More

Villa Santi, is a heritage hotel (former home of a Lao princess) with a great location in the middle of plenty of good restaurants, cafes and activities. Around 200 monks walk past the front gate around dawn gathering alms from locals, but then continue to walk past all day in ones and twos. It is lovely to watch this as... More

Advertised as a boutique hotel we were hoping for a similar experience we had in the bursari heritage. The buildings from the outside are old Laos style and look exceptional. The first room we were given was in the annexe on the ground floor. This room was dark and dingy, bathroom in urgent need of updating. We complained and was... More
