Paradise Elegance
Halong

In 2017 the Paradise Group expanded their fleet of five, to include two new especially crafted cruise ships known as Paradise Elegance.

The concept of Elegance is such that the focus is very much on the on-board experience, and while they present a slightly less intimate feel than Paradise’s other boats, they do offer a wider range of features and amenities, and all with Paradise’s signature 5-star service.

With 31 cabins and suites, at 25 square meters, these are the largest, most lavishly designed and spacious steel boats in Halong Bay. Each cabin comes equipped with either a balcony or terrace, perfect for those wishing to relax in the comfort of their own private outdoor space, and a separate dressing room for that added space. Guests can enjoy Halong Bay as much from their private cabins as they can from the various shared spaces.

There is also a spa, dining room, sun deck and two bars, which are all spread over five decks. Offering a range of treatments, L’Évasion Spa is found on the main deck away from the buzz of the rest of the boat. Le Marin Restaurant and Le Piano Bar, both of which offer live entertainment, are located on the salon deck. Flexible dining is available so guests can choose when and where they dine, a particularly important point when one can so easily lose track of time! On the stylish open-air bar and sundeck, L’Odyssée Bar and the sunbathing areas offer wrap-around views of the bay and ample space to soak up the sunshine.

Allowing visitors to explore Halong Bay more deeply is a primary objective of the new cruise ships. Where other vessels stay anchored during excursions, the Paradise Elegance cruise ships will continue sailing around the bay and those visiting the attractions will go by tender boats. Guests that don’t join the activities will be able to cruise through different parts of the bay instead.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

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
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.
- Matthew Nicklin, 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!
- Leslie Siben, 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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
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
