  • Description

    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.

  • Accommodation

    Deluxe: 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. The bathroom is made of Italian marble with a walk-in shower and a Jacuzzi.

    Suites: 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.

    Leisure Facilities

    Lounge Area with Library: 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.

    Gym and Sauna: The extravagant Violet also has its own gym and sauna. Be a little sporty - lift those free weights and feel totally relaxed and ready to sneak into your soft bed after a muscle soothing sauna (max. 2 people) session with aromatic oils.

    Spa: 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.

    Sundeck: 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 sundowners.

  • Bars & Restaurants

    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.
