The Reverie Saigon has acquired a private yacht, which will sail on three new river cruising experiences.
With the debut of the 18m, 10-guest Monte Carlo 6, The Reverie Saigon is weighing anchor with a crew of three and a private butler.
The Reverie yacht will start off by offering private charters of two-and-a-half, five and eight hours starting at 50 million Vietnamese dong (US$2,167).
The three voyages reveal the day-to-day living and traditional commerce that still take place along the riverfront. Further from the heart of the burgeoning metropolis, the yacht will thread the country’s verdant delta.
The cruising options begin with Saigon Intermezzo, a non-stop, 2.5-hour sunset cruise that departs in the late afternoon and includes a champagne picnic for two.
The champagne picnic includes a bottle of Louis Roederer, five prix-fixe menus to choose from, round-trip transfers in a Mercede-Benz S-Class or a BMW 7 series and service by a Reverie butler.
The second option, Saigon Avventura, luxuriates over five hours and includes all of the Intermezzo elements while enjoying an exploration of the Can Gio UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Encompassing approximately 80,000ha of the lush river delta, the ‘green lungs of Saigon’ are blanketed with a rich mangrove forest brimming with wildlife as well as flora and fauna.
And to top, Saigon Spettacolare offers a full-day, eight-hour excursion anchored by a golf stop at Taekwang Jeongsan Country Club, located on the ecological island of Dai Phuoc, an approximate 60-minute ride from central Saigon by boat.
Guests can enjoy a champagne picnic on board, while full lunch and dinner service can be arranged depending on the schedule.
Italian yacht designers, Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard, are responsible for the Monte Carlo 6’s overall design while the interiors were fashioned by fellow countryman, Pierangelo Andreani.
The 32-ton yacht is decked out in teak wood with spacious interior living and dining areas as well as spaces to lounge on the main deck and on the Monte Carlo 6’s flybridge above.
Out on the foredeck are electronically controlled sun loungers complemented by a built-in outdoor sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, while the below deck is a spacious master bedroom with ensuite, a fully equipped walk-in kitchen, a separate powder room and a multi-purpose seating area. The built-in outdoor barbeque on the back deck can be enjoyed with private chef service.
