Our hotel Hanoi La Selva arranged this overnight cruise for us on Orchid Cruises @ Lanha Bay. We were treated to absolute luxury and great service!
From the point we were welcomed on board Mr Thomas’s “house”, to the point where Mr Thomas personally escorted us to our van which would take us back to Hanoi – service was first class!
Our rooms were spacious and had a balcony. They were on the lower deck. Air conditioned, King sized beds, rain shower, slipper tub, complementary fruit, tea coffee and water. The only thing missing I would say was bath bombs or bath salts. Bring your own salts if you plan to use the tub :).
Food was fantastic! Dinner is a sit down type set menu – but breakfast and lunch more buffet style. Kudos to the chef for providing us with variety. We had one person in our group who didn’t eat meat and they catered special vege options only for her! Thank you!
Lanha Bay is definitely worth the visit. Sea green warm water and stunning scenery. Less crowded than Halong Bay. We were treated to kayaking and swimming which we enjoyed. And stargazing on top deck at night is a definite treat if you want an unobstructed view of the heavens. We also loved the sunrise although we had to be up at 5am to catch it. The early morning light over the Karsts is stunning.
We were not too impressed with the cocktails but juice options and coffee were very good.
Overall we’d definitely do this again! A big shout out to Mr Thomas, Mr Tee and the entire team on Orchid Cruises to Lanha Bay for a fabulous time.
