Once the home of Lao royalty, today Villa Maly is an exquisite boutique hotel, surrounded by luscious tropical gardens. Its rooms evoke the subdued elegance and creative touches of a bygone time. The hotel's 33 guest rooms are each subtly created to incorporate time-honored Laotian architecture with an essence of the Colonial past.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days as part of a larger trip that meant we travelled here from Bangkok and then onwards from here to Vietnam and Cambodia. I would recommend Luang Prabang to anyone visiting Indochina and would definitely recommend Villa Maly for your stay here. The room we had was very comfortable and had a television, large safe and minibar. There was no iron or ironing board, but the hotel does provide a laundry service. However, there are other laundry services available on the same street and they are much cheaper than the hotel. That is not a criticism of the hotel, but we felt that it was better to give our money to the small local businesses as they need it more. Maid service was daily, unless you put up a notice saying it was not required. Breakfast was very pleasant, and a good start to each day. We did not eat in the hotel at night, as the town is vibrant and has a very lively street market, with many places to eat, from street food to good restaurants. Staff in all areas of the hotel were very pleasant and helpful, especially my friend Pheng who kept me supplied with nice cold BeerLao when I was at the pool area. Be sure to make the best of "Happy Hour". The pool area area was right outside our room door, so we couldn't have been better placed. There are comfortable sun loungers dotted around the good-sized pool. The hotel offers many excursion opportunities, at very competitive prices, and we booked two of them. The first was on the Nava Mekong cruise, which took us up the Mekong River to the Pak Ou Caves and to Whisky Island. The second trip was a private van, booked through the hotel, which took us to the beautiful Kuang Si falls, stopping at an elephant sanctuary and a bear-rescue centre on the way. The elephant sanctuary was an optional extra, which we were originally going to pass on, but we are so glad we changed our minds and stopped there. We were able to take one of the older elephants for a 'walk' along the banks of the Mekong and that memory will live with us forever. I will upload several photos along with this review, so you can see how pleasant the hotel and its surroundings really are. We found it far more attractive than the photos we had seen in the brochure. I would highly recommend Villa Maly, and would definitely stay here again if we ever return to beautiful Luang Prabang.

We were a party of 7, taking 3 rooms and stayed at the end December 2019. From the moment we arrived everything there was perfect. Great breakfasts, yummy lunches by the pool and a terrific group of staff that always went the extra mile to arrange tours or transport or just give general advice. In fact they arranged a cooking course for us at The Bamboo Tree Cooking School. They did detailed research on pricing, availability and numbers of people per class, and offered 4 alternative cooking schools. The cooking class out in the garden at The Bamboo Tree was the highlight of our stay in Luang Prabang. If you have a chance make sure you book in. We loved our 7 days at Villa Mally, but just wished the pool was warmer!!

After a short transfer from the airport, check in at Villa Maly was warm and efficient and we were upgraded to Room 2 in the main house with all the expected amenities. A lovely boutique hotel in a great location for the town with lovely staff and facilities. Enjoyed a variety of restaurants from local to high end French style including Manda de Laos with its beautiful setting and just minutes away. The Night market was fantastic and fortunately we stocked up on gifts for the family (little did we know we would have to abandon our tour later due to Covid-19).Whilst all the staff at Villa Maly were great, special mention to Edelie (from France) who asked us at breakfast on the first morning if all was Ok. Everything lovely we replied except there was no mirror adjacent a plug socket for the hairdryer (fundamental for my wife). Same day they removed a picture above a socket and hung a mirror. In addition the manager gave us a late check out which was greatly appreciated. Would certainly stay here again. Need Laundry! Laundries were everywhere in LP including directly opposite the Hotel where you got 1Kg for 10000KIP (Approx £1) and the same for ironing.

Lovely little boutique hotel located in a quiet street just outside the hustle of down town Luang Prabang. But also only a short 5 minute walk to the centre. The hotel has the friendliest staff I’ve ever seen. Nothing was too much for any of them and they always made the time to come over for a chat. The rooms are lovely and in a traditional style. We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and our room was beautifully decorated by the hotel for us. Perfect stay, if we ever go back to Luang Prabang we’ll definitely be staying here again :)

Some friends and I stayed here for a few nights in Feb 2020. Rooms are an excellent size and well appointed. The breakfast buffet was fabulous. Didn't try the pool but we made use of the bicycles, which was nice. Most of all, the staff were very accommodating to random requests (I needed them to take a delivery of handcrafted items while I was at dinner) and letting us use their computers and phones to rebook travel in the runup to the Covid-19 crisis.
