205ft AQUA MEKONG architects have mastered a design brief that called for a ship with the aesthetic of a sophisticated five-star hotel.
This opulent river cruiser was custom built by Saigon Shipyard Co. Ltd. Along with Noor Design, responsible for styling and interiors, the renowned Asian shipyard launched a head-turning masterpiece. Accommodations for up to 40 guests in 20 double cabins are sensual and serene. Varying by requirement, AQUA MEKONG has capacity for 40 crew.
Interior spaces evoke the spirit and soul of the Mekong. Indigenous, sustainable materials, craftsmanship, and artistry result in indulgent spaces of sophistication and serenity. It is appropriate that AQUA MEKONG won the PURE Design Award in 2014.
AQUA MEKONG: Sumptuous Living
The 20 suites aboard the AQUA MEKONG are outward-facing, floor to ceiling panoramic windows, giving every cabin a river view. Each suite also has either an outside balcony or interior day bed for enjoying eye level cruising from the privacy of your Suite. Some suites can also be interconnected to create one larger suite for family use or the additional suite can be configured as a private lounge.
The vast upper observation deck houses the main facilities. These include the bar and lounge, fitness center, tranquil library, screening room, sundeck, plunge pool and various cabanas. Guests can take full advantage of the Southeast Asian equatorial climate and marvel at life on the river with panoramic views.
Charter guests relax and rejuvenate at two serene spa treatment rooms, one single and one double. Indulge in a spa menu of traditional healing therapies that include Khmer massage and Vietnamese aromatherapy.
AQUA MEKONG Gourmet Cuisine
Consulting Chef David Thompson, winner of Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award Asia 2016, insures that on board chefs create local and international specialties for the gourmet connoisseur. Ingredients procured by them from local riverside markets provide a fascinating excursion for guests with an interest in regional cuisine. Guests can even take an on board cooking class.
