Violet

She can be pompous at times but her coquettishness will melt any heart.

Heritage Line’s family of boutique cruise ships includes “Three Sisters” in Halong Bay, the youngest of whom is the coquettish Violet. The 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, The Violet is small and exquisite.

With just six luxurious cabins, the 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 velvets, 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 gym and sauna, 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.

Suite

The Violet Suites read like a romantic fairytale. The four are called Dragon, Phoenix, Moon and Cloud (Twin). As with the Deluxe 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. All of them pay meticulous attention to detail: plush king solid wood beds, exotic dark furniture, charming fabrics and decorative walls and ceilings paintings. Specifically designed to create that exquisite regal aura. The suites sit on the upper deck with 38sqm space including stunning views of the bay from the private balcony (5sqm). Amenities: Individually controlled air conditioner, mini bar, in-house phone, safety box, LCD screen, DVD player, table, lounge chair, bath robe, Jacuzzi, hair dryer, tea and coffee facility.

Deluxe Stateroom

The Violet has two special deluxe rooms. We named them Water and Mountain – the elements of Halong Bay. And they are individually designed. The Water Deluxe has a king bed and a soft white ocean-like ambiance surrounds the room. The Mountain comes with twin beds 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 36sqm floor space and have a private balcony (6sqm). The bathroom is made of Italian marble with a walk-in shower and a Jacuzzi. Amenities: Individually controlled air conditioner, mini bar, in-house phone, safety box, LCD screen, DVD player, table, lounge chair, bath robe, Jacuzzi, hair dryer, tea and coffee facility.
