Sanctuary Ananda, the luxurious new boutique river cruiser from Sanctuary Retreats, set sail on its maiden passenger cruise in Myanmar in November 2014.
Bringing new levels of luxury to cruising in this beautiful destination, Sanctuary Retreats' latest offering showcases original Burmese design and contemporary chic in an atmosphere of five-star comfort.
Custom-built using traditional Myanmar materials and featuring just 21 beautifully appointed suites, spread over four decks, this floating palace boasts all the comforts that go hand in hand with 5-star luxury.
The Sanctuary Ananda offers one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios on the river, allowing guests to enjoy the mysteries of Myanmar with a choice of six itineraries led by expert guides.
The vessel is the only all-balcony (fully furnished), all-suite ship on the Ayeryarwady River, with facilities including an on-board gym and spa, a well-stocked library, gallery, lounge, cocktail bar, and plunge pool. A selection of cultural lectures and master classes are also offered on each cruise.
Right now Travellers booking a berth on the Sanctuary Ananda for a 10-night adventure on the Chindwin River before 8 March 2015 can save up to 20% per couple.
This journey ventures to the northern reaches of Myanmar along the Ayeyarwady's great tributary, the Chindwin, in an area that is completely untouched by tourism. The region is wild and remote and only accessible for a few weeks of the year when the water levels swell from the monsoon rain. Explore orchid-rich jungles, distant monasteries, forgotten villages and ancient towns almost as far as the Indian border, such as Mawleik, Kalewa and the caves of Po Win Taung in Monywa, where life has changed little in centuries.
10-night cruises depart: 26 July 2015, 5 August 2015 and 25 August 2015.
