Violet Halong Bay Cruise

Halong Bay – Luxury Cruise

Experience an incredible journey in Halong Bay when you choose to board the stunning Jasmine cruise

If you want to experience Halong Bay take a look at our stunning 2 and 3-Day itineraries. Rainforest Cruises is welcoming you on the beautifully

traditional Violet cruise to combine relaxing experiences with exciting excursions and out of this world views.

We have multiple boutique cruise ships in Halong Bay, the youngest of whom is the coquettish Violet. Violet is named after the beautiful Violet Chirita, a delicate purple-flowered plant that grows nowhere else but on the rocky slopes of Halong Bay. Like her namesake, Violet is small and exquisite.

With just six luxurious cabins, Violet gives visitors an exclusive look at the wonders of Halong Bay. In this small yet luxurious craft, visitors can appreciate the bay’s massive scale, the boat’s red sails dwarfed by the bay’s towering limestone islands.

Built to resemble a traditional Asian junk, the wood-clad Violet features gleaming wooden floors, opulent silks and velvet, and cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the breathtaking views. Guests will find all the amenities they would expect in a larger vessel, including a spa with unrivaled views, a restaurant and a lounge, and a rooftop Sundeck. For an intimate experience of Halong Bay, there is nothing to compare to the lovely Violet.

A French Colonial aura reigns in the restaurant and this eatery feels more like a bourgeois living room where friends are made and tête-à-tête conducted over red wine. Our high end cuisine produces varied tastes and flavours but – as you can imagine – is chiefly specialized in seafood. Set menus and a wide choice of à la carte cuisine are offered. The subtle small bar with illuminated backboard artwork is the ideal place for a pre-dinner drink before taking your seat at your private table. The Lounge is set up with traditional wooden materials and Indochina patterns creating an elegant atmosphere to while your time away. The Library invites you to rummage and examine a bit. The Spa offers a varied selection of relaxing treatments. A secluded room with space for one is the perfect refuge to dream away on one of those mystic Halong evenings.

The Sundeck with its numerous sun beds is not only a place for watching islets and islands – the Violet hosts its dinners here in an exclusive set up of lanterns and stars. A day-bar with lounge-like wooden sofas offer guests the ultimate setting for their sun-downers. Our culinary team serves you delicious and beautifully presented regional and international fare in the private atmosphere of the restaurant or even to your room. Fresh local ingredients, including of course products from the sea as well as imported ones, are used to make sure your palate will remember your meals on Violet for years to come.

Life On Board

Imagine waking up to the sweet warble of chirping. The early rays of the sun start to kiss the curtains and floor of your beautiful cabin. The smell of coffee – strong but not pungent – gently glides to your cabin. All along the way from your cabin to the restaurant you are greeted by the cherubic smiles of the staff. You think: “Soon, they will not be staff to me but friends”. Breakfast is set up on table with a variable menu to choose.

A day filled with adventure lies ahead. The amazing fishing village awaits. You have thought about this day since leaving your home country and now you are in the middle of it. And you look forward to returning to the Violet. You glide into the blue hour of the day. You slip into the Jacuzzi – warm and inviting – and the bubbles start to tenderly massage you. As you lay your head on the soft pillow, your thoughts wander to the day after. A memory for a lifetime.
