The new luxury vessel known as Ylang begins her journey from a pier on the small island Cat Hai near the city of Hai Phong (approx. a 1.5-hour drive from Hanoi). It is the only dedicated 2-night luxury vessel in this area.
After the successful launch of Ginger in June 2018, Heritage Line’s Ylang will be the new addition in 2019 to the collection of top luxury vessels cruising the unspoiled bay of Lan Ha (Lan Ha Bay is a quiet extension of the famous Halong Bay).
A journey on Ylang offers a fantastic medley of exclusive on- and off-shore experience. This 10-Suite “Sensuous Belle” will have her maiden voyage on the August 17, 2019 sailing on a very distinctive 3-days/2-nights journey named “Senses of Lan Ha”.
The itinerary of Ylang includes two overnights in the serene Lan Ha Bay.
Unique and captivating excursions from cycling to leisure hiking on Cat Ba island and an exploration of a remote Lan Ha Bay fishing village are the highlights during the stay. All activities are paired with a nicely balanced wellness leitmotif aboard the vessel including a half day for guests “at their own pace” to choose from various spa offers, yoga, swimming or kayaking.
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.
