The Loy Dream Cruise delivers a lavish and intimate way for just four guests to experience the ‘Land of Smiles’ along Thailand’s majestic Chao Phraya River. The vessel is an historic teak rice barge, which has been impeccably restored and reincarnated as a delightful river cruise ship that takes her cue from a bygone era of travel.
You can expect graceful décor, white-glove hospitality ‒ including round-the-clock butler attention ‒ gourmet meals prepared by a private chef and the services of an expert tour guide well-versed in regional history.
Only Two Staterooms
Ornately decorated in polished mahogany and teak, the two Staterooms on the Loy Dream each offer 269 square feet of fully air-conditioned living space, with design evoking the charms of old Siam. Each has an en-suite bathroom designed in soothing marine colors and equipped with herbal soaps, a hairdryer, every modern comfort and amenity.
Each stateroom is supplied with luxurious bedding, soft bathrobes, slippers, a vanity area, make-up mirror and a safe deposit box. Regular and feather pillows are provided for extra comfort.
Presented in the dining room with exceptional views of the water, the daily-changing Michelin starred menu by the acclaimed Thai chef, Thitid “Ton” Tassanakajohn, of Le Du Bangkok restaurant, features Royal Thai cuisine and European dishes, with locally sourced produce.
You can also look forward to afternoon tea and sunset cocktails served with canapés such as tiger prawn wrapped bacon, and coriander tofu skewer with peanut sauce. Decadent brunches feature delights such as Canadian lobsters, an oyster bar, and caviar paired with fine wines.
Aboard The Loy Dream
The Loy Dream’s sophisticated interiors showcase traditional craftsmanship and regional influences evoking the heritage of old Siam. Relax on the Sun Deck sipping Champagne or savoring lavish afternoon teas. Watch life along the river unfold from the comfort of your elegant Dream Stateroom.
Relish a traditional Thai massage, while you’re on board, administered by skilled therapists who will stretch and pull your body through a variety of poses to stimulate your blood flow, reduce stress, increase your flexibility and boost your energy.
Communal areas have been purposely designed to host sunrise yoga, traditional dance performances and other activities promoting cultural immersion. Something marvelous to watch during your voyage is a Muay Thai demonstration; this martial art, which is unique to Thailand, was developed several hundred years ago and is a form of close-body combat that utilises the whole body as a weapon.
On Shore Activities
Every day is filled with adventure, serendipitous moments and discoveries. Guided excursions might include cycling on Bang Kachao island, a tuk-tuk ride around the royal palaces, and walks around the UNESCO World Heritage Site ancient town of Ayutthaya.
During your exploration of some of the region’s most spectacular sacred temples, you can participate in Thai rituals ranging from feeding the fish and encouraging the cycle of life, to making a donation to the monks.
This entire exquisite barge is yours to commandeer for parties of up to four looking for an unforgettable vacation. A magnificent way to celebrate a special occasion.
