In the heart of bustling Vientiane stands a remarkable hotel. Built in the early part of the last century, circa 1932, and painstakingly restored to its former imperial glory, the Settha Palace Hotel serves as a testament to the long lost era of classical elegance, gracious service and French colonial charm.
Once more owned by the same passionate family that ran the hotel in its heyday before the change of regime in 1975, no stone has been left unturned and no expense spared in the quest to bring this Vientiane landmark back to life.
Whether you are relaxing by the pool or holding an event in our meeting facilities, friendly service delivered with warm smiles and discrete attention to all your needs.
So if your travels bring you to Vientiane. We truly hope to be able to welcome you to Laos and wish you "Sabaidee!" (Hello and Welcome!).
