Voyage down the mighty Mekong River, the twelfth longest river in the world, and discover the wonders of Vietnam and Cambodia. Experience incredible sights in exquisite comfort, and feel the dedication of the gracious and hospitable staff who endeavour to enhance your journey with every imaginable comfort.
Built in 2015, the AmaDara features all the modern luxuries one would expect on board a vessel which is practically brand new. Elegantly designed with classic Asian minimalism, every cabin includes both a French Balcony and a fully-sized step-out balcony, making even the starting range cabins far from standard. With touches of elegance draped throughout, the AmaDara exudes stylish refreshment in keeping with its Asian settings.
Each of the 48 Staterooms are measured at 226 square feet, far larger than the majority of river-cruising accommodations. Each cabin is fully air conditioned to soothe you into a restful sleep during the warm Asian nights, and the capacious amount of space provides ample room for a seating area, a writing desk, a minibar, a security box, a telephone and a bathroom complete with wonderfully soft bathrobes and slippers. Perhaps the most enticing feature of the staterooms is the private twin balconies included. Both a French Balcony and a full-sized veranda allows guests to step out and feel part of the outdoors with the fresh air, sights, smells and sounds of their exotic surroundings.
For guests wanting to indulge in luxury, the AmaDara provides twelve magnificent suites which include a larger seating area for your comfort, along with an expansive bathroom fully equipped with both a shower and a bath tub to ease into the warm waters at the end of a perfect day. The Luxury Suites are suitably named, measuring an enormous 452 square feet. Offering premium quality amenities, these exceptional suites additionally include a wondrously comfortable king-sized bed, a sofa and a larger private balcony from which to admire the incredible sights of South East Asia.
The AmaDara features two beautiful restaurants, allowing guests the freedom to choose between the grand Main Restaurant or a more intimate speciality dining option. Begin the day with an array of fantastic buffet-style foods, before enjoying a stupendous spread of creative salads, perfectly balanced soups, delectable hot entrées and a selection of indulgent desserts. The evening meal is an exceptional multi-course experience, as local chefs prepare a taste sensation with Vietnamese, Cambodian and the more familiar Western delights. The complimentary wine, beer, house spirits and soft drinks perfectly complete your meal, and are available throughout the cruise.
