We take into account a range of criteria when choosing our group tour accommodation. Having inspected countless hotels, we offer a carefully selected range of 4 star and special class hotels throughout Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. The emphasis is on accommodating you in well-managed, centrally located properties that provide comfort, cleanliness and a modest range of guest facilities. All guest rooms offer en suite bathrooms and a number also offer in-room WIFI and satellite TV. For convenience, our hotels have their own restaurants and bars and for added luxury, many of these hotels also have a swimming pool and a health spa.
Combining luxury and comfort with colonial charm, a number of our hotels are modelled on architectural styles from by-gone eras. On group tours that visit Luang Prabang, described by UNESCO as 'the best preserved ancient city in Southeast Asia' we stay outside of the city in a beautiful resort of traditional Lao design. The property is set amongst lush tropical gardens and water lily covered ponds with views of forested mountain vistas and valleys. There is also a swimming pool, spa centre, tennis courts and shuttle bus service for trips into town. In the newer hotels we use in larger cities such as in Hoi An and Saigon, modern architecture is perfectly blended with traditional decoration, presenting the arts and crafts that distinguish each country.
Each of our selected properties within the region are within close proximity to restaurants, cafes, markets, local sights and transportation. In Hue, our hotel is righ on the banks of the Perfume River offering panoramic views of the ancient citadel across the water while in Hoi An, you’ll be staying in a hotel, which is an easy 100m walk from the old quarter. The only luxury hotel in the centre of the Mekong Delta is our hotel, The Victoria Hotel in Can Tho which is close enough to town to be practical yet still a quiet retreat. Whilst the magnificence of Angkor is only a 15 minute drive from our resort style hotel in Siem Reap
In Thailand we spend a night aboard a wonderfully unique floating jungle raft hotel on the historic River Kwai in Kanchanaburi. Each guest room is housed upon a bamboo raft allowing the cool river water to flow beneath. All guest accommodation offers private en-suite facilities, private deck and hammocks to relax upon. At night the hideway does not use electricity but rather wick lanterns and candlelight creating a wonderful ambience.
For our journey through the spectacular limestone karsts of Halong Bay, we travel on luxury wooden junk boats. Combining oriental style with contemporary comfort, these vessels have been lovingly recreated from original designs of ancient Chinese sailing ships. Reside in one of the 20 well-appointed cabins and dine in the on-board restaurant where your meals are prepared by qualified local Vietnamese chefs.
