RV Jayavarman Cruise
Jayavarman Cruise Overview
“Henry Mouhot” Lobby Lounge"
Named after the French archeologist who discovered the Angkor temple complex, the Henry Mouhot Lounge is the perfect place to curl up with a book or an e-book as. It is wifi connected. The lounge also hosts the boutique shop and the reception. The Lounge has a decidedly scholarly air about it – dark furniture with harmonious Asian fabrics, a fine smell of teak wood; white ceiling and rose-painted walls together with a bunch of stunning Khmer artifacts bring back memories of the past French Colonial era.
Be transported back to 30s and 40s in our Club 1930 Bar and Funnel Lounge on the Jayavarman Cruise. The bar has a warm classical feel and the lounge is spacious and airy. Observe the passing landscape from your dark-wood colonial styled and cushion filled chaise longue or sink in your comfy cane chair for a quick snooze.
It is difficult not to be wowed by the Indochina Dining Hall. Your breakfast spread – gargantuan and delectable – is lit by the early morning rays of the sun.
The hall is natural lighting during day and romantic with its antique ceiling lights in the evening. It offers free style seating and food is served via buffet or set menu.
The Apsara Beauty and Wellness Spa
The Spa on the Jayavarman Cruise is tucked away in a quiet area at the front of the ship on the main deck. The room is designed to accommodate two guests at the same time. Selected Asian spa treatments are available ranging from relaxing foot massage up to East Western fusions.
