The Halong Violet guides passengers through the majesty of Ha Long Bay in absolute luxury. Climb aboard the five-star traditional junk and explore hidden beaches, towering limestone karsts and the beauty of Ha Long Bay.
Designed to reflect the Indochine style of the 1930s, the red-sailed Halong Violet is the definition of opulence afloat. Each of the six spacious cabins is unique in theme and decor, evoking the ambiance of Vietnamese color and culture in rich dark woods and hand-painted fabrics. Plush beds are clad with refreshing linen sheets, a cooling comfort after windswept days on the bay. Glass-walled showers, Jacuzzi tubs and cotton bath robes round out the suite’s elegant marble bathroom. Each cabin also boasts a private balcony and a personal butler on call at all hours, ready to assist in your every comfort.
The ship’s kayaks and bamboo boats offer passage to the isolated islands and beaches of the bay. Paddle away from the ship to explore the limestone escarpments that rise out of the water and the narrow caves that lead to hidden shores and reefs where you are free to lounge on the pristine sands and relax in the calm waters of Ha Long Bay. For the adventurous, climb over 400 steps to the top of Titov Island to experience a stunning panoramic view of the entire bay.
Fresh-caught seafood and local produce are cornerstones of the menu on the Halong Violet. Enjoy a nightly cooking class and demonstration lead by the skilled chef before you delight in a fantastic meal of Vietnamese fusion cuisine in the expansive dining room. Browse the wine and champagne selection for a glass as you take in the glorious sunset over the water. You will also find a calming spa and a library on board – quiet retreats that bookend the excitement of excursions on the water.Request Information
