Mekong Kingdoms has launched five new custom-designed river cruisers, offering curated experiences along Southeast Asia’s most beguiling waterway, The Mighty Mekong.
This fleet of five distinctly different river crafts balance refinement with revelry with the ever-changing gallery of beguiling artwork, artistic lighting and captivating décor.
The same attention to detail applies to the dining on board, curated by a celebrity chef bringing an “Iron Chef” twist to ethnic cuisine, as well as to the eclectic on board activities which vary from cooking with chefs, doing yoga with yogis, learning local dances, making jewellery or river fishing.
“These are sophisticated cruises with spirit and soul that dream big and take the waterways less travelled,” Mekong Kingdoms French artist and entrepreneur, Jean-Marc Huss says.
The flagship of Mekong Kingdoms’ fleet, is the 13-all-suite Bohème – a floating palace featuring a Royal Suite, 12 immaculate deluxe suites, an expansive sundeck, funky lounge, wine cellar and spa.
Gypsy is a private, ultra-exclusive, two-cabin cruiser for exploring the Middle Mekong in the most personalised way on overnight jaunts from Luang Prabang, stopping at villages and attractions according to guests whims and wishes.
Monsoon is a sophisticated 40-metre shuttle sweeping past the splendour of Luang Prabang’s gilded temples through misty Mekong scenery to Pak Ou Caves, taking up to 25 passengers on a full-day tour with lunch on board, and a ‘sunset cruise’ in the early evening.
Play is an elegant lounge ship that can host a party of 15 or more, an intimate family adventure or even a lazy afternoon Mekong cruise for a couple or two. With an open sundeck, lounge bar, TV and sound system and an air-conditioned private room with well-stocked bar, this 42-metre water limo for hire makes the Mekong a personal playground.
Nomad is a private exploration craft that offers intimate or romantic cruises for graceful sunset champagne cruises.
Mekong Kingdoms’ dynamic new cruises are designed to captivate river lifestyle, rich natural beauty, fabled cultural heritage and colourful cuisine – with storytelling and tribal encounters along the way.
