The Violet is the youngest of the deluxe, Vietnamese junk-style vessels – or ‘Three Sisters’ – operated by Heritage Line in Halong Bay. One of Asia’s most magnificent natural splendours, Halong Bay astounds with its ethereal-like seascape and thousands of limestone islands and rocky islets jutting out of emerald green waters.
Named in honour of an exquisite purple flower growing on Halong Bay’s craggy slopes, Violet is built to resemble a traditional Asian junk boat, its billowing red sails dwarfed by the bay’s towering islands. Within, interiors are designed with a French-Indochina theme infused with 1930s Art Deco-style, evoking Vietnam’s French colonial-era.
Unrivaled among the upscale vessels that languidly sail through this stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site, Violet is resplendent with polished wooden floors, opulent silks and velvets, hand-selected artifacts and exquisite decorative details. With just six sumptuous cabin suites, individually designed to a distinguished theme and expansive with an ample-sized balcony, life onboard the Violet lends a marvelous sense of exclusivity. Yet on this intimate yet luxurious craft, guests will find all the amenities and services they would expect in a larger vessel. As it slowly glides through this ultimate cruise destination, Violet’s boat design affords guests maximum and unparalleled views of the wondrous sights passing by – especially with floor-to-ceiling windows and lavish rooftop sundeck.
