Orchid Trendy’s 20 cabin vessel is the perfect harmony between the nostalgia of the neoclassical French-colonial Indochine period and refined elegance of the Nguyen dynasty. A large renovation in 2021 added modern touches such as a large jacuzzi at the bow of the ship on the sundeck, as well as sprawling wall murals and plush sofas in the suites. Meals take place in the charming restaurant, where a variety of Asian and European flavours are served, while those looking for a bit of pampering will find it in the spa’s massage treatment rooms, sauna, and hot tub. When not out exploring Halong and Lan Ha Bay, take time to sip creative cocktails at the bar or burn some calories at the on-site fitness centre. The crew works really hard to create a warm and welcoming environment, including providing room service and an English-speaking liaison onboard to help guests with any requests that might arise during the trip. It’s for this reason that Orchid Trendy’s two identical boats are a great option for Halong Bay private charters and MICE events, too.
