Villa Maly

Luang Prabang, Laos

Villa Maly

Villa Maly is a gorgeous French villa set within verdant gardens on the outer edge of Luang Prabang’s protected zone. It has a pool, spa and a French al fresco restaurant.

A former royal residence, the delightful Villa Maly sits just outside Luang Prabang’s Old Quarter, tucked away within its own viridescent gardens. The hotel’s 33 rooms are split between five double-storey, French-accented villas, which are dotted around the gardens, most overlooking the lounge deck and swimming pool.

Villa Maly is located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of the town centre and the river. It is just outside Luang Prabang’s protected zone, and is one of the closest hotels to the town centre with a pool and spa (which are not allowed within the protected zone).

With its quiet atmosphere and individually-decorated rooms, the character of Villa Maly is more in keeping with the cosy guesthouses and boutique resorts in the centre of Luang Prabang, rather than the larger resort hotels that dominate the outskirts of town. It’s a great option for those who want to be close to the main attractions but also want the extra space and facilities, such as a pool, that come with being outside the town centre.


Villa Maly’s 33 rooms are divided between five buildings. Each is unique in style and layout. The room décor harks back to colonial times with polished wooden floors, hardwood furniture and pale fabrics that contrast with the vibrant wall colours. All rooms feature air-conditioning, cable TV, in-room safe, Wi-Fi and tea/coffee making facilities.


Le Vetiver restaurant serves a blend of Lao and Western cuisine on its shaded terrace. You can also sample Lao barbecue and hot pot at the poolside or embark for a lunch or dinner cruise on Villa Maly's own boat, Nava Mekong.
