Paradise Vietnam hosts Michelin-starred chef Thierry Drapeau


A new cruise line which is launching on Halong Bay is bringing out a Michelin-starred chef for the inaugural sailing. The Paradise Vietnam, which is a new luxury line, will be hosting Thierry Drapeau, the chef and owner of the self-titled restaurant in Western France.

“The company you keep is a reflection of your personality,” said Edgar Cayanan, General Manager of Paradise Group Vietnam. “Aligning ourselves with the best in other walks of hospitality reinforces the reputation we’ve built.”

The cruise will be one of three ‘Haute Cuisine on the High Seas’ experiences this year and Mr Cayanan said that Chef Drapeau will serve caviar and champagne before a five-course dinner.

Each Paradise Elegance boat measures 61 meters long and 13 meters wide, making it the biggest overnight option in Halong Bay, ever.

In addition to 31 high-design cabins that range from 25-35 square meters and feature private balconies, walk-in closets, rain showers and floor-to-ceiling glass doors, the 200-ton steel crafts are outfitted with an array of upscale amenities including a spa with four treatment rooms.
