Aqua Expeditions is thrilled to present a first look at the Aqua Mekong with new photos taken during the inaugural sailing on October 14th, 2014. Our third luxury cruiseship took to the waters of the majestic Mekong River just last week, taking its very first guests to experience the sights, sounds, people and places Cambodia and Vietnam. Come aboard for a first glimpse…
Step inside one of our twenty outward-facing design suites with floor to ceiling windows, providing ever-changing views of Mekong river life.
Designed by Saigon-based architects, Noor Design, our new suites embody the aesthetic of a sophisticated five star hotel whilst retaining the authenticity of our surrounding river environment with local sustainable materials and artisanal touches.
After days exploring the bustling banks of the river, relax and freshen up in the sleek bathrooms, which feature the latest eco-sensitive technology, rain showers and plenty of natural light from the glazed picture windows of each private suite.
If guests can drag themselves away from the comfort of their luxurious suites, come upstairs to the Observation Deck and settle into the plantation chairs, and comfortable loungers to enjoy a cocktail at the buzzing bar.
While travelling on one of our luxury River cruises, sidle up and order a tropical fruit cocktail from the stellar menu created by Singapore based cocktail curators Proof & Company, try an Angkor beer or perhaps a fine European wine. Sliding doors from the bar lead onto the Observation Deck, where the inviting river-facing plunge pool beckons, perfect for cooling off at the end of your day.
And as evening approaches, join your fellow passengers in the Aqua Mekong’s dining room to sample dishes from the creative culinary mind of world renowned Consulting Chef David Thompson. The menu holds delicious dishes such as River Prawns with Ginger, Shallots, Tamarind and Palm Sugar served on Betel Leaves, and Cashew Nut Pudding with whipped Coconut Cream.
Retire to the comforts of your elegant design suite, ready to wake to the natural Cambodian and Vietnamese landscapes outside your window as dawn breaks on the mighty Mekong ushering another fascinating day on board the Aqua Mekong.
