The Au Co

Climb aboard The Au Co ship and experience some of the world’s best seascapes on the most luxurious yacht to sail the emerald waters of The Gulf of Tonkin. 55 meters long and housing 32 spacious cabins, a luxury spa and a world-class restaurant, The Au Co Ship is the first of its kind to offer a full itinerary that allows its guests to explore Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba Island.


The Gulf of Tonkin is an incredible stretch of sea that covers the distance between Vietnam and China and is home to stunning islands, bays and rock formations. From the spectacular limestone pillars of Halong Bay to the beautifully pristine, sandy beaches of Lan Ha Bay, this is a destination that should be at the top of any travel list.

Your Room

All 32 cabins are spacious triumphs of design, sporting a traditional wooden decor and opening out onto their own private balconies with panoramic views of the stunning waters and bays. Each room has beautifully handcrafted furniture and a luxury bathroom complete with rain showers and fluffy bathrobes to help you feel at home from the moment you cast off.

Why we like It

We love that The Au Co really does cater for everyone, from adventure seekers to those after pure relaxation. Feeling active? You’ll be able to head off on a guided Kayaking tour, an excursion to Cat Ba’s National Park or even become a master at Tai Chi amongst other things, so there’s plenty on offer to keep you occupied. And for those of you who simply want to kick back and take in the views, you’ll feel like you’re in heaven at The Au Co’s luxury spa where you can indulge in a massage or simply relax in the Jacuzzi and watch the incredible seascape spread out before you.
