Your Host & The Team

“After having created Satri House in Luang Prabang, my inspiration in creating Lao Poet was to build a hotel that offers elegance and comfort, whilst mixing modern touches with 1930’s Indochine design. The aim is to be original, unique and distinct. The name itself stems from the land the hotel is built on, which was formerly the home and residence of Maha Keo a poet of distinction. A stay at Lao Poet may even inspire you to write something.”

Welcome to Vientiane

Set on the banks of the Mekong River and filled with French charm, Vientiane is a unique country capital that captivates one with its laidback appeal.

We Care

Lao Poet Hotel promotes sustainability and supports local businesses as much as possible, as well as continually looking for ways to protect the environment. Some of the ideas it has already implemented include:
- Minimizing all paper collateral in the guestrooms. The hotel has a room directory with all information within, so there is no need to continually print and

reprint anything.
- All team members are given a drinking bottle, thus eliminating one use plastic drinking bottles. The property is also looking at ways to reduce all plastic wherever possible, including in the rooms, deliveries and products. It is also looking into waste collection.

“Located in the historic section of Vientiane, just steps from nearby temples, shops, restaurants and the Mekong River, this urban jungle retreat features 55 beautifully appointed guestrooms, and the best infinity roof top swimming pool and bar in the city.”

Kim, the discoverer.
