Aqua Mekong
Siem Reap

Launched in 2014, Aqua Mekong offers 3, 4 and 7 nights itineraries journeying up and down the iconic Mekong River 48 weeks of the year, travelling from Siem Reap in Cambodia on to Tonle Sap and Phnom Penh, crossing into Vietnam and visiting Caibe and on to the capital city of Vietnam, Saigon (or the reverse trip, up river beginning in Vietnam and travelling north to Cambodia). Decorated with muted earth tones and sleek interiors, the Aqua Mekong is like a floating boutique hotel with a focus on chic design and excellent service – there is a 1 to 1 ratio of staff to passengers. Sleeping a maximum of 40 passengers, Aqua Mekong  has 20 luxury suites, each with with floor-to-ceiling window, air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms containing a rain forest shower with instant hot water, and 8 of the suites have private balconies.

Aqua Mekong has indoor and outdoor bars, an indoor dining room and outdoor private dining. Leading chef, David Thompson, who was awarded the first ever Michelin star for a restaurant serving Southeast Asian food, creates Khmer-influenced menus using the day’s catch and the freshest market produce. Facilities include an outdoor plunge pool with private cabanas, an observation deck with outdoor sunbeds and a top deck exercise room overlooking the river. There is also a private screening room with theatre-style seating, a library and games room, and a luxury spa containing two treatment rooms with double massage beds. Offshore excursions along the river include guided tours of the flooded emerald forests and bamboo stilt villages accessible only by boat, bird watching trips to spot flocks of painted storks and spot billed pelicans, and visits to pagoda temples and remote Buddhist monasteries.

Client Testimonials

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
