This was away from the centre of town so quiet and comfortable. The grounds were lovely and it was nice to wake up to the sounds of birds and the view of workers tilling the fields. The pool area was clean and fresh after a long day in the heat. The included breakfast was more than adequate for our needs with a cooked to order egg station. Also the restaurant was good for the evening meal. The only drawback with this hotel was its distance from town. They had a shuttle but it was infrequent and often full.

A knockout stay. Perhaps influenced by upgrading us to a suite (many thanks), without hesitation, this is a hotel we would recommend to anyone. A superb boutique hotel set in fabulous grounds on the edge of the city, it offers tranquil lily ponds and a truly relaxing pool where you will fail to do anything but chill. Don't expect 5* finishes, this is an older hotel but that is what adds to its charm. Many thanks again. Anna & Stuart

The grounds at this hotel were gorgeous - it was like being in the middle of a jungle. The room was large, with a big balcony overlooking the gardens and rice fields in the distance. Breakfast buffet wasn't large, but it had all we wanted to eat. There were not a lot of guests there at the time, so they likely kept the options limited. The hotel location is a ways out of town, and not within walking distance of anything. There is a free shuttle offered, but we didn't use it.

The Santi Resort and Spa is located about 20 minutes outside Luang Prabang. They offer a free shuttle to its sister resort the Villa Santi located in town. The hotel has beautiful grounds and beautiful rooms with free WiFi. The only issue is that loud music can be heard until late at night. I don’t believe the music comes from the hotel but from another entity nearby. It was so loud my husband was unable to sleep until it stopped. Unfortunately the music distracts from the beauty of this hotel. The breakfast buffet offered every type of breakfast item including an egg station and was very good

I am staying at the Villa Santi in town and took their shuttle to the Santi Resort & Spa where I enjoyed a Lao massage in the spa room facing the rice fields and the high hills in the far sight. Walking in the landscaped garden with lotus ponds is very pleasant.

We were warmly welcomed by Edouard the F&B manager, the customer service was excellent, we particularly liked the penne arabista and the tuna sandwich. The pool is beautiful and the little elephant in stone is a nice touch that adds to the calm and relaxing vibe of the property. We also took advantage of the spa and sauna. Mrs Phoo took great care of both my girlfriend and I (we chose the Traditional Lao massage which I definitely recommend).

I really enjoy my last wekend a villa santi.. I have to said that i didnt have one disappoint .. Room as perfect and the breakfast super good... The General manager and the thai/french manager we are very delicius persons , very hopeful and really proffessional peoples. Thank you some much

This was hands down our favorite pool of all our trip to Asia. The pool was the perfect temperature and size. It also wasn't used much. The only thing is the floor boards can get hot in the sun. The room was quite spacious with mosquito netting over the bed. The bathroom was well appointed (although the tub/shower is a high step to get into). The wifi can be spotty. We were in building 5...which seemed to be too far away from the reception building (which had great wifi). The resort provides a shuttle to their hotel in downtown Luang Prabang and there are a variety of places to eat within walking distance from the shuttle. I also had a few items of laundry done and they were returned earlier than the sheet said. Breakfast was okay... not a lot of choices but we wondered if that was because it was low season for tourists. We did have dinner in the restaurant our first night and it was tasty. Their drinks were really good.

Stayed for 3 nights when visiting friends in Bangkok, The room was large, clean and beautifully decorated with mosquito nets and silk runners on the beds and dressers. The balcony looked out over misty, lily and lotus filled ponds and tropical greenery and was a peaceful, welcoming window into Laos. We were told that the rainy season was just starting (July 2 week) and it did rain for the entire day on our first day, but the second and third days were cloudy but great temperature - high 20s. The mattresses were very firm, which made the bed less comfortable than it looked, but this was the only disappointment in the room. Unfortunately, the restaurant food was a real disappointment compared to food in general in Luang Prabang. The breakfast buffet was standard and good quality - fresh fruit, noodles and egg dishes that changed daily - but we had dinner one night where we seemed to be the only customers. The western food dishes - club sandwich - was fine for kids, but the green papaya salad was overpowered by the strong shrimp paste, and the red curry fish featured a small, dried-out filet with uninspiring coconut sauce. The clientele seemed to include a number of group tour customers, which may explain why so few guests were eating dinner there, but would be interested to hear the experiences of other diners. Although there is a shuttle to the Villa Santi Hotel in town that runs daily, we found ourselves taking tuk tuks most of the time, as the time between shuttle runs could be 1.5 hours or more. We were also surprised when the shuttle driver was unwilling to drop us at a restaurant on the way to the Villa Santi Hotel (Manda de Laos) as the location of the restaurant was right en route and we didn't see it as inconveniencing anyone. The distance to the Villa Santi hotel was approximately 5.5 km, but is an interesting shuttle run. If the hotel improves the restaurant, this could be a real destination hotel, as guests can walk around the rice paddies and beautiful grounds, and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere.

Stayed here whilst on Mercury tour Vietnam,Laos, Cambodia. This was my favourite place. Lovely traditional room, large balcony, beautiful pool area. Perfect. Nice breakfast,sweet waitresses. Bus into town til quite late. Couldn't fault it everything nice.
