La Vela Cruise Appoints New GM

After one full year of operations in Halong Bay, Paradise Group’s La Vela Cruises has promoted its newest General Manager to further improve the services.

Halong Bay, Vietnam (April 1, 2017) – La Vela Cruise, Paradise Group’s modern steel vessels that were launched exactly one year ago has appointed its newest General Manager.

Peter Weerabahu, the man who helped multiple hospitality groups and various cruise companies in Vietnam over the last few years including Bhaya Cruises and Xuan Cau Investment Joint Stock Company just recently stepped into the role last week as La Vela Cruise new General Manager.

La Vela Cruise currently operates two steel vessels, the La Vela Classic, which has 24 cabins that can accommodate up to 40 guests at a time, and the La Vela Premium, a stunning masterpiece that houses just 21 meticulously-designed cabins perfect for the modern-day traveler. Both cruises are redesigned and have been renovated to capture the ever-changing tastes of today’s cruise lovers.

“I feel very honored to be part of the Paradise and La Vela family, the biggest luxury fleet of cruises in Halong Bay at the moment,” says Weerabahu. “It’s exciting to see where we could bring La Vela in the years to come especially with the guidance of the owners and investors”, he adds.

Working at Bhaya Cruise company over 1 and a half year at least has helped Weerabahu to enhance his management and leadership skills in the Halong Bay cruises industry, which is one of the main factors why he was chosen to be La Vela’s next General Manager.

Weerabahu also worked for other luxury hospitality brands including Le Royal Meridian Dubai, Rock Water Bay Resort & Spa, and Princess Cruises.

La Vela Cruises tours Halong Bay with the 24-cabin La Vela Classic and the 21-cabin La Vela Premium, steel boats similar in size but different in style.

While the Art Deco-designed La Vela Classic evokes the sophistication and dynamism of the Roaring Twenties, the La Vela Premium embraces contemporary trends exemplified by sleek bedding and mod furnishings.

La Vela Cruises offers one- and two-night cruises and is managed by Paradise Group (, the market leader in Halong Bay luxury cruises.
