Although the party scene in Vang Vieng has recently quietened down, Maylyn Guest House offers a peaceful haven from the town itself. My wife was feeling a bit sick so we stayed in the new rooms (80 000kip), concrete and with en suite bathrooms, not the bungalows, which are simpler and made of wood. Situated across the river and set in lush gardens with loads of butterflies, this is THE place to chill out, lie down and read a book or just do nothing. With friendly staff, simple but good food, if you want a quiet, relaxing retreat, this is the place for you.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a budget guest house/mini eco resort.We are on the edge of a village our rear faces towards the Karst mountains. We are located next door to the beautiful and expensive Vieng Tara Hotel. We have a variety of rooms some are simple basic timber frame and bamboo bungalows for people who want a more authentic SE Asian experience and we do have more conventional masonry rooms for those who need them. The main appeal of our place is the location, the views and of course our Garden which at times is full of butterflies. Early wet season is best for the butterflies. I recognise that we may not be what everyone is looking for but many people love us.. ... more less
