Colonial luxury at Villa Maly

Villa Malay

What sets Villa Maly apart from other hotels in Luang Prabang is that it’s an original, UNESCO-protected building with an amazing history. Built in 1938, the property was once home to Laos royalty and despite being occupied by American forces in the Vietnam war, it remained in the royal family until the 1990s. In 2007, the Apple Tree Group acquired the property and turned it into a boutique hotel.

We’ve preserved the building’s original Lao-French colonial architecture, which gives Villa Maly its historical charm, making it a genuine boutique residence. The hotel is in a fantastic location within walking distance of the city centre and there are free bikes available for our guests to use. You can enjoy our tropical gardens and pool, massage service and restaurant serving Laos and Western dishes. We can even arrange traditional baci ceremonies – a ritual used to celebrate important events and occasions – on request.

Guests comment on the superb service at Villa Maly, the calm and quiet atmosphere and the comfortable rooms, which feature art deco style with colonial touches. At Villa Maly, we’re proud that all of our staff are from Laos and we try to help the community with regular city clean-ups, by supporting local events and by working with schools to provide internship and training schemes.
