Our Favourite Experiences On Water In Southeast Asia

From cruising the waters of Halong Bay on classic Oriental junks to navigating the Indonesian archipelago aboard a Dutch galley, our collection of luxury sailing trips and cruises showcase the most thrilling experiences on water across Southeast Asia.

Choose to navigate the great rivers of the region such as the Mekong on the ultra-modern boutique Aqua Mekong, and the Irrawaddy on the Burmese-influenced The Strand. Or embark on a private ocean voyage on board the resplendent Raja Laut, which will sail you elegantly around the exotic islands of Southeast Asia, giving you the chance to explore a number of countries on one excursion.

Add a special edge to your trip by scuba diving as you go and getting up close to the region’s diverse marine life. A liveaboard journey through Indonesia’s Komodo National Park and Raja Ampat is a must for enthusiasts and the Tiger Blue and Silolona offer are a fantastic alternative to a land-based resort.
