Villa Maydou – Colonial Atmosphere


Villa Maydou
Luang Prabang Laos


More than a villa, it is a small village made up of 2 historic houses dating from 1925 and 1936, classified as a World Heritage by UNESCO and 3 houses built recently but respecting traditional architecture and materials. Centrally located around a swimming pool and a lush garden. The decoration is inspired by French colonial houses, enhanced with Lao handicrafts such as traditional embroidery and silks as well as contemporary paintings.

The two historic buildings have very different histories, but belonged to the bourgeois families of Luang Prabang close to the royalty. These houses were renovated and transformed into a hotel in 2005 by the current owners (a Franco-Laotian couple). The Villa Maydou is located near the old bridge of the Nam Khan River and is adjacent to the Vat Meuna Pagoda.

15 rooms in Heritage buildings, 14 in Tradition buildings

One restaurant and a bar open daily from 6 am to 10 pm, fresh and seasonal products (jams, yoghurts and homemade cakes!), Traditional Lao cuisine, and also Asian and French.

Swimming pool with salted water, massage, bicycle available, boutique


Ban Meuna, B.P 749, Luang Prabang 06000, Laos
