Local sustainable materials and artisanal touches of the Mekong’s multifaceted cultures round out these generous interior spaces designed to welcome guests in the utmost comforts between on and off shore excursions along this fascinating river, and to Chinese wing tipped pagoda temples and remote Buddhist monasteries.

Spacious and indulgent, yet intimate enough to feel entirely exclusive, the Aqua Mekong incorporates relaxed yet refined lounging and dining areas, and can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests plus crew. Modern navigation technologies and the highest cruise ship standards as well as our experienced river pilot and crew ensure smooth travel and safety on the water.

The Aqua Mekong is also the first cruise ship on Southeast Asia’s greatest river to offer a fitness center, library, screening room and observation deck. The sustainable crafted ship’s 20 designer suites – the river’s largest guestrooms -- overlook the Mekong through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Dine on world-class dishes created by top Southeast Asian cuisine chef, David Thompson, winner of the Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award Asia 2016. As Consulting Chef of the Aqua Mekong, Thompson incorporates culinary traditions of Mekong River cultures with the freshest ingredients to create indigenous inspired dishes.

Four auxiliary aluminum launch boats with capacity of 10 passengers each, depart from the Aqua Mekong two or three times per day for expert-guided shore excursions to serene Buddhist temples and stilted villages. Guests can also explore the unique landscape by bicycle and kayak.
