To start planning your vacation to Bhaya Classic Premium
Bhaya has a large fleet of boats that cruise in Halong Bay and the Gulf of Tonkin. Whether you want a private experience or the opportunity to mingle with other guests, Bhaya offers 2-4-day itineraries to suit all preferences.
The air-conditioned cabins are all generously sized with wooden floors and traditional woven panels adorning the walls to create a light feel to the room. They have good sized en-suite bathrooms and can be configured as either twin or king beds. Some of the cabins can interconnect. Each room comes with a small balcony, ideal for relaxing on as you take in the dramatic landscape.
Children are welcome on board Bhaya Premium. Babysitters can be arranged with prior notice if parents would like some time out, and older kids will enjoy the fun cycling and kayaking activities. Interconnecting cabins are available, and all cabins can comfortably accommodate an extra bed or cot.
All meals on board Bhaya Premium will be included, and the menus will differ from boat to boat depending on seasonality and which of the specialty chefs are on board. Much of the food is produced locally on Cat Ba Island, at Bhaya’s organic farms, or taken directly from the ocean. Dietary requirements can be easily catered for. The bar is fully stocked with international wines and spirits and is the perfect place for sundowners to mingle with other guests. Special occasions can be celebrated with a private meal on a beach or in a grotto.
