Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Paradise Peak cruises leisurely around Halong Bay, taking in its islands, villages and floating markets. Cruise options include 2 days and 1 night, or 3 days and 2 nights, and charter cruises are also available.

Rooms onboard Paradise Peak

The lavish air-conditioned suites are a showcase of polished wood and Vietnamese art, with panoramic windows overlooking the bay, beautiful ensuite bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, complimentary mini-bars, TVs and DVD players, and you can enjoy movies in your suite.

Additional extras include private dining areas and spacious private balconies or terraces where you can sit and take in the views and watch the world go by. The best bit though, is that each suite comes with its very own butler (at your service 24 hours a day), so you won’t have to lift a finger.

Food & Drink

Tuck into delicious local specialities as well as international favourites from the a la carte menu options, served with complimentary house wine, local beer and soft drinks. You can dine in the elegant dining room or in your suite if you prefer some privacy. If you’re feeling inspired, take a cooking class with the chef to learn how to make your new favourite dishes.


As well as a lounge, a library and a sundeck (where you can enjoy Tai Chi sessions), Paradise Peak has a spa with three massage rooms, a sauna and a Jacuzzi, and you can also indulge in in-room spa treatments - so there are plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind. However, if you prefer a faster pace, there’s also a fitness room, so you don’t even have to abandon your normal gym routine during your cruise.

Activities onboard Paradise Peak

As well as fashion shows and traditional live music and dancing onboard, you can explore Halong Bay’s islands (such as Ti Top, which has spectacular views over the bay), as well as magical caves and grottoes (some containing ancient stone carvings), fishing villages and floating markets.

Embark on excursions on Paradise Peak’s smaller boat, go fishing with the locals, swim and snorkel, or head out in a kayak to discover your own slice of paradise in the bay.
