Violet is “The Youngest” of the beautiful sisters. She has always secretly been the favorite of her dashing French aristocratic father and petite Vietnamese mother; her parents have always admired the coquettish charm that sets her apart from her older sisters. Named after the delicate purple blossoms that grow on the sides of the rocky islands in Halong Bay, Violet is a charming blend of tenderness, style, and tradition.
Her cabins, with names like Dragon, Moon, and Mountain, conjure up all the mystique of the magical bay, and she loves nothing better than to sit down and tell guests stories about its fascinating age-old customs and traditions. From her French father, Violet has inherited a truly artistic eye, and this sense of all things beautiful is expressed in the exquisite and intimate individuality of her interiors.
She is immensely proud of her French Art-Déco collection, for its aristocratic origins and for how perfectly it blends with the luxurious oriental elegance, making her the true bijoux of Halong Bay.
