Au Co Cruise offers tourists a dream voyage on Halong Bay - the World Natural Heritage with the first class services and variety of fun activities. Tourists can enjoy lavish meal at the restaurant and relax at the spa & Jacuzzi on board. Furthermore, you can join many sporty and cultural activities (swimming, kayaking, cooking class, Tai Chi practices, etc.).


the au co restaurant

The elegant and luxurious The Au Co Restaurant has been carefully arranged according to the generating principle of Wu Xing, with the dining room featuring both wood and metal elements. On arrival, guests will notice that the interior elements of the wooden furniture and polished wooden floor help air flow, harmonizing the natural light and wind with the surrounding landscape and mountains, giving guests the feeling of being immersed in nature, satisfying the senses of sight and taste.

Meanwhile, metal elements in the dining room, representing fire, are minimized by reducing kitchen and other electrical appliances in the room, which would just distract from the meal. According to the principle that water nourishes wood, the sight of the Gulf’s water and the sound of soft music are simply used to create a calm, gentle atmosphere, which should stimulate guests’ appetites.


Au Co Cruise Semi Bar

The terrace deck of the Au Co Cruise features not one, but two wide, open-air bars; again designed with the Feng Shui principle of Yang - Movement - Flexibility, as a counterpoint to the Yin - neutral - Earth element. The spacious bars, with their light rattan furniture are the perfect place to relax and while away your day accompanied by a range of food, beverages, and snacks. Alternatively, they are the place to meet after a busy day of activities for a pre-dinner cocktail as the sun sets over the Gulf of Tonkin.

The Au Co Bar stocks a full complement of aperitifs, wines, cocktails, drinks and snacks, and serves visitors until late at night.

If guests are seeking more privacy and comfort each cabin has its own in-cabin refrigerator, which we can stock with your choice of beverages.
