INHALE THE SEA BREEZE WITH A COCKTAIL, ENJOY THE STUNNING VIEWS & PARTY NEXT TO A BONFIRE IN OUR PRIVATE ISLAND
With this exclusive trip we have created a truly Exceptional Adventure which takes you off the beaten track, to the most secluded and untouched areas of Halong Bay & Lanha Bay. Combine that and the once-in-lifetime experience of sleeping in an elegant beachside bungalow on a private island makes this incomparable.
Get away from the crowds and skyscrapers clogging up Halong Bay and see this natural world wonder as it’s meant to be seen. Our voyage takes you on a scenic cruise through Halong Bay and the lesser known Lan Ha Bay, away from all the bulky cruise liners for over 200 miles (320 Km) (5x Longer than any other cruise, guaranteed).
Take an awe-inspiring kayak exploration through the fascinating ‘light and dark caves’ to a tranquil lagoon, where maybe you will see the endangered CatBa Langur monkey and cruise around 1000s of limestone karsts as you make your way to our beautiful private island, Cat Ong, where you’ll enjoy for an unforgettable night filled with delicious seafood, island cocktails and a beach bonfire. Keep the adventure going with a journey to Cat Ba Island where you’ll trek to the peak of Cat Ba National Park. From the peak you’ll take in a panoramic 360 degree view of the tropical forest and mountains that fill the island. All this and more are waiting for on our one of a kind voyage through this natural world wonder.
Such an incredible trip shouldn’t be missed even though you are not a backpacker.
