5star

Be transported back to the old times, charm and luxury of Indochina's Emeraude Classic Cruises, with all the comforts and personal service you could possibly wish for. Sail the mysterious Halong Bay in a deluxe 55 meters vessel that has been designed in the tradition of Le Tonkin.

 

In 1910 a paddle steamer called the Emeraude was offering unforgettable cruises in Halong Bay for visitors to what was then French Indochina. The Emeraude was part of a flotilla owned by the Roque family who had left Bordeaux in 1858 in search of adventure and fortune. Over a period of more than 50 years they found both. After several ups and downs including successful trading and timber businesses, near bankruptcy and being taken hostage by pirates, the Roque brothers built Emeraude, Perle, Saphir, Rubis and Onyx to ferry passengers and freight along the waterways of Indochina and cruise on magnificent Halong Bay.

Today the Emeraude offers a regular cruise service on board a luxurious replica steamer with 38 cabins meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of colonial Indochina.

Accommodation
Each bespoke cabin exudes warmth and character with high standards of workmanship, distinguished style and impeccable service. With its polished wooden floors and brass fixtures and fittings the Emeraude’s rooms offer timeless elegance.

• Superior room at lower desk
• Deluxe rooms at upper desk
• Suite room located at the front of the ship

The restaurant
The Emeraude’s restaurant offers delicious, freshly caught local seafood and other specialities. While enjoying breathtaking views of the bay, passengers can enjoy the simple and honest flavours of traditional fare.
From the sun deck, passengers can enjoy a soothing foot massage while sipping a refreshing cocktail and gazing at the
rock formations reflected in the crystal clear water of the bay. The Emeraude’s huge paddle wheel opens to reveal a swimming deck offering passengers the opportunity to swim in the calm waters of the bay surrounded by the majestic scenery. At dawn, that most magical time as the sun rises, the soft and graceful movements of a Tai chi class on the deck complement the atmospheric silence of the bay.

Emeraude Classic's Cafe
Located in Bai Chay at the Royal Park Resort, the café connects to the Emeraude's private pier, providing, convenient transitional space for guests to embark on the luxury overnight cruise.

The cafe serves a selection of Western food, including freshly made sandwiches, panini and pizza. Along with an extensive variety of teas, coffees and fresh juices, the café has an excellent wine list, sourced from around the world.
A cozy interior and outdoor terrace provides room for up to 70 diners. The café also offers complimentary wireless access for guests and sells a variety of Emeraude souvenirs.
