Villa Maly

Once the home of local nobility, this imperial boutique hotel combines Laotian character with echoes of its French colonial past. Set in the center of the charming UNESCO World Heritage town Luang Prabang, it's within easy walking distance of historic landmarks.


Villa Maly’s main building is from 1938, and was once the residence of Princess Khampieng and Prince Khamtan Ounkham, a grandson of King Khamsouk Zakarinh. The hotel’s five buildings are in a beautiful garden and surround an inviting swimming pool with comfortable chaises lounges.



33 rooms are set in five low-rise buildings and are furnished in traditional Laotian style with parquet floors and tropical hardwood. Each features air-conditioning, minibar, flat-screen television, Wi-Fi and tea/coffee making facilities.

Superior Rooms (24m2) are uniquely designed and feature two double beds or a kingsize bed, bath with shower and balcony with garden or pool view.

Deluxe Rooms (37m2) are set in the Plumeria building – a former royal residence – and are more luxurious with elegant furnishings crafted by artisans, kingsize beds and pool or mountain views.





Only 20 minutes’ drive from the international airport Villa Maly is situated in the heart of the city, within walking distance of the main historical attractions and places of interest.





Villa Maly's restaurant, Le Vetiver, serves a range of western and local favourites, including a traditional Sindat (Lao BBQ). There are also a number of restaurants within walking distance.


On a relaxing Luang Prabang evening, what could be better than a poolside barbecue and hotpot in the midst of Villa Maly.  Enjoy a tantalizing selection of specially marinated meats and fresh seafood. We’ll fire up the grill and leave you to cook selections to your liking. Meanwhile, we’ll leave a steaming hotpot to simmer its delights. Our wine list complements both the grill and the hotpot.





The swimming pool remains in its original location, imagined anew with alternating swaths of black and white mosaic tiles. Villa Maly has been rated one of the best swimming pool hotel in Luang Prabang.
