The Villa Maly is situated in the heart of Asia’s “best preserved city”. It's a residence, an oasis, a destination unto itself. Once the home of Lao royalty, today Villa Maly is an exquisite boutique hotel, ensconced by a profusion of tropical flora. Its rooms evoke the subdued elegance and creative flourishes of yesterday’s aristocrats. Its wonderful situation, in an enclave of classic old homes will embed itself in your dreams of Luang Prabang.
Each Superior Rooms can lay claim to its own distinct appeal, featuring custom arrangements and distinguished artwork. The rooms do share similarities in hardwood floors, vibrant colors, slate-walled bathrooms, flat-screen televisions and views of the gardens or pool. Some superior rooms boast a king sized bed; others offer a pair of beds.
With king beds, wonderfully subdued colors and ample natural light, Deluxe Rooms rank as the Villa’s most exquisite accommodation. All deluxe rooms occupy space in the home at the heart of Villa Maly, now known as Plumeria, but once the residence of Princess Khampieng and Prince Khamtan and their children. The furnishings in each room was specially designed for Villa Maly and crafted by artisans in Saigon. The desks, the bedsteads, wardrobes, and tables add to the singular ambiance of Villa Maly.
Villa Maly’s own culinary options are a good base for exploration. The hotel’s kitchen serves a mix of Western and Eastern dishes, from Italian favorites, local fish to green curry; fried glass noodles prepared Lao style and Chinese fried rice. Likewise, the wine includes vintages from Europe to Australia.
In their two-table, poolside venue, their two therapists practice time-honored spa techniques. They're ideally suited for one guest at a time but couples can be accommodated, and the four-hand massage is an option. Pre-booking is recommended.
