A funky little find in the Lao capital with a glamorous rooftop infinity pool, Lao Poet comes with all the style cred its Luang Prabang sister retreat, Satri House, is renowned for. Wallpaper of glossy palms backdrop the 55 bedrooms bedecked in paper lanterns, velvet spreads, cushions in jewel tones, plus desks for digital nomads. Antiques are paired with 1930s repro leather chairs and Arco-style floor lamps in the lobby, while botanical prints and chandeliers adorn the dining room. Lao Poet sits on a quiet street in downtown Vientiane, its location perfect for the sights, and the growing coffee and restaurant scene. Grab a free bike offered by the hotel, or drink in the sunset from the infinity pool terrace. — Claire Boobbyer
