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.

You slip into the Jacuzzi – warm and inviting – and the bubbles start to tenderly massage you. You put on your clothes and walk to the dining room. All along you are greeted by the cherubic smiles of the staff. You think to yourself, “Soon, they will not be staff to me but friends.”

You decide to have breakfast with the rest of the guests. A big spread lays before you. Western cuisine. Asian food. Fusion delights.

You get ready for the adventurous day ahead of you. Ah, kayaking. You have thought about kayaking since the day you left your home country. And now, you will soon experience the dash of adventure and the hint of danger that goes with it.

And you look forward to returning to Violet. To another sumptuous dinner. To a dip in your Jacuzzi and to a well-deserved massage.

As you lay your head on the soft pillow, your thoughts wander to the day after. And you wish this experience never ends.

Restaurant with Bar

Kick back and relax at our spacious restaurant and bar, complete with candlelight for those looking for a romantic dining experience. Savour our daily fresh seafood – straight from the Mekong – or try our chef’s creative Vietnamese fusion cuisine. Or even better, do both. The ideal place to watch the gentle rays of the sun descent over the horizon whilst sipping a glass of champagne.

Lounge area with Library

Want to put your feet up and enjoy the tranquility of the river? Snuggle up with a book at our lounge and library. We have a diverse collection of reading material – books and magazines for all literary tastes. The lighting is soft on the eyes and yet, bright enough for easy reading.

Sun deck on Violet cruise

Quaff the sun’s ray at our sundeck. Lay back on our sunbathing lounge chairs and feel the gentle warmth of the Vietnamese sun. We offer Tai Chi classes every morning.

Violet Cruise Deluxe Room

The Violet has two special deluxe rooms. We named them Water and Mountain – the key elements of Halong Bay. And they are individually designed. The Water Deluxe has a king bed and a soft white ocean-like ambiance surrounds you in the room. The Mountain comes with a Twin and carries a more yellowish tone. Both cabins are equipped with elegant furnishings and attention-to detail artifacts. They are located on the main deck with 25sqm floor space (5sqm for balcony) and have a private balcony. The bathroom is made of Italian marble with a walk-in shower and a Jacuzzi.

Amenities: Individually controlled AC, mini bar, In-house phone, sun hat, slippers, safety box, LCD screen, DVD player, table, lounge chair, bath robe, Jacuzzi, hair dryer, smoke detector, tea and coffee facility, alert system.

Violet Cruise Suite

The Violet suites read like a romantic fairytale. The four are called Dragon, Phoenix, Moon (double) and Cloud (Twin). As the Deluxe all four come with its single designed 1930 Indochine décor. Large windows give 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 more dreamy-white or wistful sky-blue outfit. All of them are pay meticulous attention to detail: plush king solid wood beds, exotic dark furniture, charming fabrics and decorative walls and ceilings paintings to feel like a regal. The suites sit on the upper deck with 38 sqm space including stunning bay views from the private balcony (5sqm).

Cruise Reviews

  • "Perfect Violet cruise trip on Halong Bay"
    We booked trip 2days on Vilolet cruise and travel by shuttle bus. It was a nice driver and the cruise trip was fanciful. We had a friendly guide, knowledgeable and very helpful. Cannot say more about the cabin and food. Everything was perfect with us. It was worth for our money.

    "Worth a three-day trip"
    It was an amazing overnight cruise which we booked on Violet. We were really relaxing and enjoying when staying on cruise besides visiting the sites as set itinerary. We visited lovely beach, swim on emerald seawater, caves, islands, floating village, pearl farm, beach during the trip. They also arranged great BBQ lunch on beach and it was really fantastic. Worth for our trip!
