Violet Cruise

Violet Cruise is a wooden junk in Halong Bay, it’s known as one of the most luxurious boats in the area. With just 6 luxurious cabins, this cruise gives you an exclusive look at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay.

You will find all the amenities you would expect in a larger vessel, including a gym and sauna, a spa with unrivaled views, a restaurant and a lounge, and a comfortable rooftop Sundeck. For an intimate experience of Halong Bay, there is nothing to compare to the lovely Violet.



The cruise features two cabin categories, 2 Junior Suites – on the main deck and 4 Imperial Suites – on the upper deck.



Named Water and Mountain – the elements of Halong Bay, each cabin has 36sqm floor space and a private balcony (6sqm). The bathroom is made of Italian marble with a walk-in shower and a Jacuzzi. While the Water Suite has a king bed and a soft white ocean-like ambiance surrounds the room, the Mountain Suite comes with twin beds and carries a more yellowish tone.



Other 4 cabins are Imperial Suites, each cabin has 38sqm space including stunning views of the bay from the private balcony (5sqm). Those four are called Dragon, Phoenix, Moon and Cloud (Twin). As with the Junior Suites all four are appointed with its singularly designed 1930 Indochine décor. Large windows offer a full view to the Bay. While the Phoenix and Dragon come more in reddish hue with golden or silver deco elements and fabrics, the Cloud and the Moon have a rather dreamy-white or wistful sky-blue outfit.
