CABINS

Junior Suite
The Violet has two special Junior Suite rooms. We named them Water and Mountain – the key elements of Halong Bay. And they are individually designed. The Water Junior Suite has a king bed and a soft white ocean-like ambiance surrounds you in the room. The Mountain comes with a Twin and carries a more yellowish tone. Both cabins are equipped with elegant furnishings and attention-to detail artifacts. They are located on the main deck with 25 sqm floor space (5 sqm for balcony) and have a private balcony. The bathroom is made of Italian marble with a walk-in shower and a Jacuzzi.
Amenities: Individually controlled AC, mini bar, In-house phone, safety box, LCD screen, DVD player, table, lounge chair, bath robe, Jacuzzi, hair dryer, smoke detector, tea and coffee facility, alert system
Imperial Suite
The Violet Imperior Suites read like a romantic fairytale. The four are called Dragon, Phoenix, Moon (double) and Cloud (Twin). As the Junior Suite cabin all four come with its single designed 1930 Indochine décor. Large windows give full view to the Bay. While the Phoenix and Dragon come more in reddish hue with golden or silver deco elements and fabrics, the Cloud and the Moon have a more dreamy-white or wistful sky-blue outfit. All of them are pay meticulous attention to detail: plush king solid wood beds, exotic dark furniture, charming fabrics and decorative walls and ceilings paintings to feel like a regal. The suites sit on the upper deck with 38 sqm space including stunning bay views from the private balcony (5sqm).
