Villa Santi

Sakkarin Rd., Luang Prabang, Laos

A local princess's son-in-law converted this 19th-century royal residence in the heart of Luang Prabang into to a boutique hotel, and built a resort outside town. The old building on Sakkarin Road in town has been renovated and now houses the Royal Suites, as well as the hotel restaurant and swimming pool. The newer wing, around the corner, has quiet rooms a short stroll from the Mekong River. Five minutes from town, the Villa Santi's resort offers respite from the bustle of the city and has a 20-meter swimming pool. Free shuttle service allows those at the resort to visit the town, and those in town to chill out at the resort's pool. The open-air terrace restaurant serves Lao and international cuisine.
