As you sail through Vietnam and Cambodia’s most beautiful and tranquil scenery, why not take the opportunity to pamper yourself? AmaDara has an expert hair stylist, masseuse, and beauty therapist at your disposal for the duration of the cruise. Pamper your body and rejuvenate your spirit while you’re on board with AmaWaterways.

Every feature in an AmaWaterways stateroom was thoughtfully conceived with guests' comfort in mind. Staterooms and suites give you the space to sit back and relax in between meals and exploration. Artfully crafted to a first-class standard, each room is equipped with innovative designs, plush bedding, multi-jet showerheads, and many other special touches that make you feel like you're getting the royal treatment.

Your stateroom was designed to ensure that you travel in luxury from one stunning destination to the next. Set the climate control to your preference and slip into a terrycloth bathrobe as you unwind. Turn on the Entertainment on Demand system and put on a newly-released movie. Switch your flat-screen monitor into computer mode and hop on the internet to post your adventures on social media. Your spacious stateroom is yours to relax in and enjoy as you see fit.
