Another Cool Boutique Hotel in Laos: Villa Maly
Since Luang Prabang is the old royal capital of Laos, then it's not so unusual to create a hotel out of the ex-residence of a local prince, which is what's happened with the Villa Maly. They've created 33 rooms spread across five buildings and it's all a mix of Laotian architecture and French and British colonial influences. Five of the rooms are deluxe and have their own balconies and views over the gardens and pool.
Villa Maly is modern enough, we're pleased to say, to include stuff like WiFi, rain showers and air-conditioning in every room. But until the opening is upon us, we can't seem to get info on how much each room will set us back so stay tuned.
