As the latest member of Heritage Line’s extraordinary ship collection in Lan Ha Bay, Ylang features a splendid blend of Asian-Vietnamese design with Indochinese accents.

Ylang is officially on sale with its very unique and dedicated 3-days/2-nights journey named “Senses of Lan Ha”. The cruise explores the captivating region of Lan Ha Bay (Lan Ha Bay is a quiet extension of the famed Halong Bay) offering a medley of on- and off-shore experiences.

The vessel will have its maiden voyage on the 17 August 2019 including two overnights in the serene Lan Ha Bay.

The cruise embraces distinctive experiences and includes wonderful active excursions from cycling to leisure hiking on the island of Cat Ba and an exploration of a remote Lan Ha Bay fishing village. All excursions are perfectly paired with a nicely balanced wellness leitmotif on the vessel including a half day for guests “at their own pace and choice” to choose from swimming, kayaking or spa and yoga.

Ylang begins her journey from a pier on the small island Cat Hai near the city of Hai Phong (approx. 1,5 hrs drive from Hanoi) and is the only dedicated 2-night luxury vessel in this region.

As the latest member of Heritage Line’s extraordinary ship collection in Lan Ha Bay, Ylang features a splendid blend of Asian-Vietnamese design with Indochinese accents. This ancient flair of Indochina emanates throughout the entire vessel showcasing a delicate floral design theme. Local artisans contributed to Ylang’s decoration with hand-crafted paintings and artwork using various materials and techniques. All ten suites are dedicated to a particular blossom which typically represents a season in Vietnam. Among these are four high-end Regent Suite with floor space up to 54 sqm (581 sqft). All Regent Suites are individually designed, the front facing premium suites feature a Jacuzzi on their balcony. Ylang emanates an inimitable sense of bliss and is an exceptional abode at sea.

Heritage Line has started begun to offer contractual rates to accredited business partners.
