Villa Maly

In the heart of Asia's "best preserved city," there is Villa Maly. 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. For more details, contact smm@appletree-asia.com.

Kamu Lodge

In the heart of the Lao jungle, on the banks of the Mekong, Kamu Lodge strikes a delicate balance between tourism and the maintenance of the region's cultural and ethnic heritage. However swift moving the flow beneath our bluffs, the Lodge is an eddy in the rushing currents of our age. A place to slow down. Disengage. An opportunity to live as deliberately as Thoreau, if only for a day or two, fronting the essential facts of the natural world. Thirty kilometres upstream from Luang Prabang, the Mekong channels between the dramatic flanks of Lao hills, scenery that very well may be unrivalled in the river's 4,350-kilometre journey to the sea.

Sanctum Inle Resort

A destination as detached from the wider world as Inle Lake demands a resort where detachment is a priority. Where simplicity is the essence of elegance. Where contemplation, not bustle, reigns supreme. At the Sanctum Inle Resort, arches and cloisters reference the monastic life, opening the doors on a more contemplative experience of travel. With a design that celebrates the fundamentals, that merges the spiritual and the secular, the past and the present, East and West, the hotel is a gateway to one of the Asia’s most fascinating locales. Stay in one of six classes of rooms and suites; eat from menus that span Eurasia; and explore the wonders of Inle, and the quietude cultivated by one of Myanmar’s most ambitious new hotels.

La Residence Hotel & Spa Hue

In 1930, the mansion at 5 Le Loi opened as an addition to the residence of the colonial French Resident Superieure. This period was the hey-dey of the art deco school of design. No corner of the globe was beyond the bounds of this popular movement. While art deco fever was especially fervent in Hanoi and Saigon, Hue Vietnam also tapped the design current of the day for some of its landmark period buildings. In the 1930s, Le Loi Street was known as rue Jules Ferry, thus named for a 19th Century French prime minister and imperialist. During the Nguyen Dynasty, the imperial navy governed the land along the river, from the present-day railway station to the Stone Bridge (Dap Da) 2.5 kilometres downstream. When the French assumed control of Hue in the 1880s, they ceded the northern bank of the Perfume River to the Vietnamese and redeveloped the south bank as their 'New City.' Today, it's known as one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. For more details, contact sm@la-residence-hue.com.
