Mr. Rick Lopes as its new Director of Operations, based on Tuan Chau Island announced Bhaya Cruises is the largest luxury cruise operator in Ha Long Bay,
“The Bhaya, an elegant junk with 20 cabins, is sailing in Halong Bay, 100 miles east of Hanoi. It begs for Agatha Christie to set Monsieur Poirot a mystery on board. It is light, airy and comfortable but full of potential for a whodunit: a very respectable couple from Shropshire sits next to a young gay couple from Germany, while a boisterous Australian family orders drinks. Some try squid-fishing from the lower deck after a fresh crab dinner served on crisp white tablecloths.
As one of the largest cruise ships on Halong Bay, Bhaya is luxuriously appointed. No expense has been spared in order to recreate the imperial splendor enjoyed by Vietnam’s Emperor’s as they took their cruises of Halong Bay.
The Bhaya Classic fleet offers a total of 60 luxury cabins and suites accommodating a maximum 120 passengers for Ha Long Bay cruises or hosted events (weddings, corporate retreats, incentives, meetings, conferences, etc.).
Bhaya offers four types of intimate, luxury, personal accommodation: Deluxe Twin Cabins, Deluxe Double Cabins, Bhaya Suites and the exclusive, lavish Royal Suites.
All Cabins and Suites are finished in traditional Vietnamese hardwood giving them a rich, luxuriant warmth. The white deck heads, thatched bamboo-matting panels and expansive curtained windows deliver ambient light and views. Hand-crafted hard wood furniture, gold and white fittings, white bed linen and soft pastel turquoise bed runners and pillows further enhance the warmth and light.
All accommodations include air-conditioning, fans, private toilets and showers (with bath in the Royal Suites), refrigerator, and picturesque ocean views as standard.
Built with state-of-the-art craftsmanship, each new wooden Bhaya Legend continues with the original design of traditional royal junks, featuring three-four sleeping cabins, dining room, sundeck and bar. All cabins are spacious with en-suite bathroom, and large windows offering panoramic views of the bay. All the boats exceed local maritime authorities’ safety requirement and all staff are certified in marine safety training.
The fleet expansion (four boats feature three cabins each and one boat features four cabins) comes with a refinement of the concept. Guests choosing the Bhaya Legend will be given the choice of their length of stay, the itinerary, the activities and the food. Guests will be accompanied by a Legend Ambassador as a private butler to assist them, arrange the cruise to suit their needs and ensure maximum flexibility of the program. The activities on offer include swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, an introduction to Vietnamese cuisine, local communities discovery, and more.
Bhaya Legend has achieved tremendous success in the past few years. The expansion of our private fleet is a major development for the company. With a fleet of eight private Bhaya
