This is a real gem in the heart of Luang Prabang. A French colonial feel with a really personal touch from all the staff who are friendly and attentive.We could walk out to all the local sights and restaurants and we had a great time exploring the town on the hotel bicycles.Highly recommended

The Villa Maly is a few hundred metres outside the heritage village of Luang Prabang, down a quiet lane off the fountain square in the main street. It’s my idea of hotel perfection. A place where the manager greets you upon arrival, sits you down and gives you something to eat and drink while you sign in, and then manages...

I am currently a guest at Villa Maly and am very satisfied! The young manager bends over backwards to be accommodating, as does his colleague at the restaurant and the friendly staff from Laos. The breakfast is lavish and quite chic. For their airiness and views over rooves and treetops, we would recommend upstairs rooms if available.

I liked my room, breakfast and sitting outside (with spiders?). Did not swim. Location was not central but I liked it because one saw how was it outside “concentrated tourist district”. It is walking distance to everywhere who can walk 45 minutes in one direction. I have mixed feelings. First evening I sat outside, after dinner, and smoked cigar. In...

We arrived at this boutique hotel after suffering two record cold, rainy days on a Mekong cruise. The hotel had gone out and bought oil space heaters for every room which were extremely welcome to our bone-chilled group. Meals were still outside since this part of the world does not expect such cold weather, but they provided a blanket for...

A fantastic stay in Villa Maly with very helpful and welcoming staff. The general areas (e.g. pool, bar, breakfast room, reception etc.) of the hotel as well as the rooms were beautiful. The Walking distance to the city center made it easily accessible.
