Indochina Sails - The luxury we deserved

We booked the 2 days / 1 night stay on Indochina Sails, deluxe room, 2nd level. Our boat was the 'Indochina Sails Premium', which has only been sailing since Nov 2010, and is very new and luxurious. The rooms (24 rooms) were 5 star hotel rooms essentially, with big rain shower-head, spa bath, private A/C,private balcony (on upper level) and all the trimmings. The dining room, lounge and deck areas were spacious - good for mingling with others or for privacy. The food was great - a good selection at the buffet for lunch on Day 1 & brunch on Day 2. There was a set menu for dinner, Vietnamese and Western cuisine. It was filling and delicious. The staffs on the boat were super-friendly and very accommodating for any requests; they really tried to keep everyone entertained if you wanted it that way (Tai Chi, food carving demos). We also took advantage of the on-board massage therapist (extra cost), to keep up the pampering.


The trip itself was great. The boat sailed smoothly around Halong Bay with stops at Titop Island for spectacular views, a fishing village (which was a highlight) and the following morning we explored Surprise cave.

It was a fantastic trip with Indochina Sails - definitely not cheap, but if you are looking to spoil yourself and do it in grand style, this is without doubt the way to go! Transfers by minibus from Hanoi were included - it is a bit of a scary trip, but that is just Vietnam I'm afraid!

Halong Bay is spectacular and this trip was a fantastic way to see it! Our only regret was that we didn't book the 3 days / 2 nights instead.
