The gracious Ginger will be Heritage Line’s new vessel cruising the Lan Ha Bay, which is a tranquil part of the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam. Ginger hosts only 12 large suites, all naturally light-flooded and with well-sized balcony. There will be two Regent Suites in the highest room category. Additional four Signature Suites and six Junior Suites complete the suite only vessel. Ginger expresses her elegance with warm timber floors, marble bathrooms and distinguished design themes that interlace the long-lasting traditions of Northern Vietnam paired with contemporary accents.
Ginger’s uniqueness is expressed with a special culinary theme as well as a refreshing lifestyle atmosphere. The terrace deck is a marvelous public area. An almost 360-degree light-flooded restaurant offering live cooking is framed by an outdoor alfresco area. An indoor bar corner invites to relax before or after dinner.
The most exclusive facility is Ginger’s pool on the terrace deck. Surrounded by comfortable shaded sunbeds, the views from the pool are spectacular. So are the views from the spa rooms in the stern of the ship – one VIP spa room comes with steam bath. Combine relaxing spa treatments with dramatic outlooks through floor to ceiling glass windows on the bay.
Ylang, the latest member of Heritage Line’s ship collection in Lan Ha Bay, features a splendid blend of Asian-Vietnamese design with French-Colonial accents. This ancient flair of Indochina emanates throughout the vessel with a delicate floral leitmotif inspired by local poetry and related to the four seasons of the year. Local artisans contributed to Ylang’sdecoration with hand-crafted paintings and artwork using various materials and techniques. All suites are dedicated to a particular blossom which typically represents a season in Vietnam. All this creates an inimitable sense of bliss and an exceptional abode at sea.
Ylang has only ten spacious suites on two decks – each room is flooded with natural light pouring in through floor-to-ceiling panoramic doors which open onto a private balcony. What makes Ylang unique, is her expansive spa with its extensive selection of thoughtfully selected treatments. The focus on wellness lives on in the more dynamic activities such as yoga in a dedicated room, or early morning Tai Chi lessons on the upper deck.
As the first specific cruise at Lan Ha Bay, Orchid Cruises are like charming orchid petals falling into the bay. Same as the bay that is described as an orchid, the popular flower in the area, falling and landing in Hai Phong City, to have its name (Lan Ha: landing orchid). With over 25,000 species, orchids are the largest family of blooming flowers. Not only renowned for their varied size, orchids are also impressive for their bright colours and unique shapes gathering in an elegant beauty that no other flower looks quite like them.
Orchid Cruises bring the charm of Lan Ha Bay and the grace of orchids into one elegant world. As soon as getting on board, you are welcomed by the enchanting scent of orchids everywhere. Then it comes the scent of elegance.
With 14 elite cabins, Orchid Cruises are among a few to offer 5-star cruises at the bay, offering large luxurious boats including a bar, a restaurant, a gym, a spa, and a sundeck. The spacious deck under the sail offers a great view especially in sunrise and sunset as well as a relaxing sunbath among the sea.
