The guest rooms, aptly called Design Suites, span the first and second decks. Each room is lined with floor to ceiling windows, allowing guests to feel directly connected with the landscape floating by the Mekong outside. The dining room, which is lit with natural sunlight, is lined with flooring made from natural woven fibers from the region. The vessel was designed to also encourage natural ventilation, with passageways to bring the tropical breeze throughout.

The luxurious accommodation also boasts an outdoor pool, library, observation level and spa. The Aqua Mekong is a unique getaway that combines sustainable accommodation with a journey to emerald forests, stilted villages and pagoda temples.
