Your Host & The Team


“My ambition when I created Satri House was to show the rest of the world, the beauty of Laos - the indigenous lifestyle of its people, its simplicity, elegance and sense of grace. Inspired by Lao culture and built at the turn of the last century as the residence of Prince Soupha-nouvong, (the resistance leader known as the “Red Prince” who later became the Lao People’s Democratic Republic’s first president in 1975) Satri House is deemed the most stylish boutique residence in Luang Prabang. I like to share with guests my favorite spots to admire the sunrise, walk around the old town or along the Mekong, listen to the silence in temples… Just like all hosts in Secret Retreats, I like to let people feel how beautiful life can be here.”


Lamphoune Voravongsa - Luang Prabang’s Protector of the Past

Born in Laos, but exiled to France at a young age, Lamphoune Voravongsa returned to her roots after 30 abroad and opened her first shop in Vientiane specialising in traditional garments, jewellery, paintings and antique statues. She extended her business to include several shops in Luang Prabang before purchasing the former residence of Prince Soupha-nouvong, the resistance leader who later became the Lao People’s Democratic Republic’s first president in 1975.

Lamphoune restored the colonial mansion, which was built in 1904, and turned it into one of the most stylish boutique hotels in Luang Prabang as well as a classified UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lamphoune’s passion to empower other women led her to name the hotel Satri House, meaning ‘House of Women’. Inspired by Lao culture at the turn of the last century, Lamphoune’s greatest ambition is to show the rest of the world the beauty of Laos – its indigenous lifestyle, simplicity, elegance and grace. She also plays an active role in a handicraft association, Satri Lao Silk, which is devoted to preserving Laotian traditions.

Thank you for a fabulous time!

We returned from Koh Jum Beach villas two weeks ago now and are still dreaming of being there! Thank you so much for organising our holiday and for answering our endless questions. The accommodation was superb and the island was amazing. Again, thank you for a fabulous time! I will be looking at your website for similar accommodation.

Un énorme merci pour l’organisation du voyage. Excellent travail. Tout était parfait: sélection des hôtels, navettes, horaires .. Un petit plus le transfert en jonque entre The Jahan et The Island Lodge! Excellent travail de préparation de votre part. Continuez comme ca.

Review for Kumai

Everything about your company and my cruise was fantastic and the food and kindness of the crew was just unreal.. thank you for offering such a wondrous experience and if you sell those brown Wow Borneo t-shirts the staff was wearing I’d love to buy one and advertise for you in California! I’m going to show all my pics and tell about the trip to all my students ( I’m a high school teacher) and I hope some will be as fortunate as I to take a trip with you. Again, thank you for an unbelievable 4 days.

“Once the home of the first president of Laos, this historic French colonial style house has 31 rooms.”

Kim, the discoverer.
