Our La Vela Classic was modeled on the early Art Deco Indochinese design popular in the early 20th Century. After recent renovation, Paradise is proud to present a brand new concept to La Vela Classic with a fusion design, combining modern interior with typical décor of Vietnamese northern uplands. For example, the cabin walls covered with brocade of ethnic people from Sapa bring a very authentic touch to the interior design of the boat. 24 expertly crafted cabins, including Deluxe rooms and Suite, are arranged over two decks, leaving the upper deck for the elegant dining room, above which is the stylishly furnished sundeck.
24 cabins encompassing three different cabin types, the La Vela Classic cabins reflect the sophistication of the roaring 20s with a stylish Art Deco interior design concept. Comfort is second to none in the La Vela Classic cabins, with ensuite bathrooms, a cozy wooden and bamboo interior, and high quality luxury beds. Comfortable 8-layers beds of La Vela Cruises are fitted making sure that guests will have sound sleeps and enjoy the best of the legendary bay. Connecting cabins, which consist of two adjoining deluxe cabins, are ideal for small families, as you can enjoy your own privacy while still keeping an eye on the kids.
