"Sanctuary Ananda boat was perfect: the food, service and the extras given were all first class. Totally worth its price!" - Diane O, Nov 2018

Sanctuary Ananda is custom built by local craftsmen using traditional materials while offering sleek contemporary luxury. She offers 21 spacious suites on three decks (all of which have balconies), a sundeck with an outdoor pool and a delightful panorama lounge.

The most popular routes on this boat include 3, 4 and 7-night cruises between Mandalay and Bagan with fabulous excursions included off the boat every day. However there are also longer 10 and 11—night itineraries available that take in the Chindwin River. Please ask us more about this for further details.

Sanctuary Ananda showcases original Burmese design and contemporary chic in an atmosphere of five-star comfort. In every suite you will find lush silks, polished teak and beautiful lacquerware. No corners have been cut - you can snuggle down in Malaika Egyptian-cotton sheets and wake up to your L’Occitane-stocked en-suite bathrooms and even enjoy the use of a personal iPad!

There are three types of suites - but each one has a balcony. The deluxe suites have either double or twin beds and an en suite bathroom with monsoon shower (two sets of these are inter-connecting, so perfect for families). There are four luxury suites with an indoor seating area with a pull-out sofa bed available to accommodate a third person. Other perks include butler service, early morning tea and coffee, and complimentary laundry.

Finally, the largest suite on board is the spacious and luxurious owner’s suite, boasting a luxurious king-size bed, separate dressing and living areas, plus a big veranda with sun loungers as well as table and chairs. The spacious bathroom will spoil you with a freestanding tub as well as a monsoon shower and his-and-hers sinks. Other benefits will include a private guide, butler service, early morning tea and coffee, complimentary laundry and exclusive dining experiences.

There is an indoor restaurant as well as al fresco dining options and a comfortable lounge bar on board. The culture and cuisine of Myanmar are reflected in the dining options - alongside a choice of Western favourites and international dishes. Expect dishes such as soft-shell crab, red curries, and mango and pomelo salad, while extensive Italian-cuisine experience means freshly made pasta, couldn’t-be-fresher salads and excellent steaks and burgers.

There is also a spa on board offering a delightful range of therapies and treatments.
