High-Class Cruises Planned for Halong Bay

New product includes personal overnight cruises onboard deluxe junk-yachts.

The Life Heritage Resort in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam, is planning to launch a new product – personal overnight cruises onboard deluxe junk-yachts journeying around the spectacular coastal scenery of Halong Bay. The five Life Heritage Resorts located on Vietnam’s long and sandy coastline are recognised by the travel industry and media for their top-end standards. Conde Nast Traveller has included the Life Heritage Resort Hoi An on its 2010 Gold List.

Each of the planned 22 luxury junk-yachts will be designed in hardwood surfaces featuring a 32 square-meter cabin, upper deck, covered dining terrace and sun deck with sun loungers. Inside the cabin are panoramic windows, en suite bathroom, queen-sized beds, air conditioning, DVD player and LCD TV. You are sailing on your own private vessel; it’s just the romantic couple and the crew for the whole journey.

The boat glides between the limestone formations and floating villages Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Area. All boats depart the mooring at midday each day and return by 10am the following morning. Special packages and rates are available for two- and three-night trips or longer if required.
