Why we like it

  • More than 20 years experience hosting discerning guests over the waters of Halong Bay

  • Each luxurious cabin features a marble en suite bathroom with Massage and Rainfall showers
  • Delicious selection of Vietnamese and International cuisine served on board

A&K Top Tip

Very few of the characterful limestone outcrops of Halong Bay have been named, but those that have usually reflect the shape of the island itself. See if you can spot the Incense Burner, Stone Dog and Fighting Cocks.

The 14 Cabin Indochina Sails is traditional Vietnamese with soft, muted colours giving the junk a welcoming feel. The interior is lined with a perfumed wood leaving a pleasant aroma whilst local granite has been used in the bathrooms which are warm in winter and cool in the summer. All cabins aboard Indochina Sails are air-conditioned with en suite bathrooms offering queen sized doubles and twins in both superior and deluxe.
