Aqua Mekong

Described as a "floating five-star hotel", the Aqua Mekong was designed by British architect David Hodkinson of Noor Design and is constructed entirely from locally-sourced sustainable materials. As you drift along the river, observe the changing river landscape through your room's gigantic movie-screen window, not forgetting to look out for the flocks of painted storks and spot-billed pelicans along the way. All 20 luxury suites, 8 of which have sky terraces, display a simple contemporary design. If you desire a little more space, interconnecting suites can be configured to create a private living area and separate master bedroom with his-n-her bathtubs.

Help the chefs to shop the local riverside markets for the finest local produce, which they will later transform into one of the many tantalising dishes from executive chef, David Thompson's innovative menu of exotic Southeast Asian flavours. There is an abundance of facilities on board with a screening room showcasing classic films about the region, air-conditioned library, a plunge pool with private cabanas high on the observation deck and spa treatment rooms, where the therapists use traditional healing and massage techniques to perform a range of rejuvenating treatments.
