Violet Junk, Halong Bay

Experiential | Very Good | Excellent | Magnificent | Out of this world



  • Spa on board
  • Water sports available 


Cruising through the turquoise waters of Halong Bay is an unforgettable experience, and staying on board the boutique style Violet Junk is an extra special way to do it. With just 6 individually themed cabins, you’ll be well looked after from the moment you step onboard. This boutique style boat has been finished to a high standard with gleaming wooden floors and opulent fabrics that will transport you back to the glamour of the 1930s. Each air-conditioned cabin offers floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the gorgeous views of the bay, an en-suite marble bathroom complete with Jacuzzi tub, and a private balcony. 

Facilities on board include a sundeck with wooden loungers, where you can start your day with Tai Chi lessons. The 24 hour Violet Restaurant serves high-quality Western and Asian meals, with seafood fresh from the Mekong, while the small bar is the perfect spot to enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif. There’s also a spa where you’ll be rejuvenated with a choice of massage treatments, or you can burn off those extra calories in the small gym.
