out of the ordinary
Designed to offer the sophisticated traveller every comfort on board, Lotus Cruises invite you on a glamorous adventure discovering the fascinating history and sights of southeast Asia.
With an authentic approach to luxury river travel, Lotus ships offer romantic French colonial décor inspired by the spirited heritage of the region combined with spacious suites with flat screen TV, private balconies and even your favourite spa treatment on board. The itinerary has been carefully tailored with a selection of excursions accompanied by our onboard English-speaking guide to ensure a deep insight into everyday local culture. Casually elegant dining showcases French-Indochine inspired dishes from our chef, creating a fusion of flavours using locally sourced produce. Our guest to staff ratio of 2:1 ensures personalised attention to detail when dining, mixing a cocktail at sunset and all housekeeping requirements. As the ultimate leader of luxury travel in the region, Lotus Cruises offer unmatched value, unrivalled comfort and exceptional hospitality.
Lotus are committed to improving and protecting the environment on each cruise. Sustainable travel is more than just an idea for Lotus, and several on board initiatives have been implemented by our team to protect our country’s future and guest experience. Eco-friendly products such as glass carafes replace plastic bottles, and refillable aluminium water containers for excursions have been sourced from our partner “Refill Not Landfill”. Plastic straws and cocktail sticks are no longer in use and Styrofoam containers for packed lunches have been replaced with paper boxes. We strive to reduce future damage to the marine life and livelihoods of Mekong Delta residents.
Lotus support local communities of the Mekong Delta by encouraging a farm-to-table approach among farmers and our onboard boutique features indigenous items. Our talented team and invited performing artists are locally recruited from Vietnam and Cambodia, showcasing authentic culture for our delighted guests. A recent initiative was undertaken to collaborate with underprivileged communities through Pour Un Sourire D’Enfant which has been providing education and training programmes to street children since 1995 as well as the quality uniforms worn by the entire Lotus crew.
