Luxury Class

Sanctuary Ananda, luxurious all suite ship will take you in style on voyages of breathtaking beauty and discovery on the mysterious rivers of Myanmar.

You’ll visit the majestic Ayeyarwady between Bhamo and Yangon visiting temples, pagodas, palaces and monasteries along the way, while journeys on its great tributary, the Chindwin, will take you to places visitors rarely see – through the jungles of the north, forgotten villages, ancient towns almost to the Indian border.

Sanctuary Ananda is being custom built for the Myanmar rivers by local craftsmen using traditional materials while offering sleek contemporary luxury.

Started sailing in December 2014, she offers 20 spacious suites on three decks, the Aloungpayah suite, a sundeck with an outdoor pool and the Kansi panorama lounge.

Sanctuary Ananda is a perfect combination of local culture and luxury, because we understand that even when you are immersing yourself in a new experience, there are some things you should never be without, such as a large comfortable bed, the pleasure of a good drink, excellent food, immaculate service, and the company of like-minded people.



Custom-built with just 21 suites, Sanctuary Ananda showcases original Burmese design and contemporary chic in an atmosphere of five-star comfort. In every suite, lush silks, polished teak and beautiful lacquerware celebrate Myanmar’s rich heritage of arts, crafts and textiles and Malaika Egyptian-cotton sheets ensure that we make you as relaxed as can be. Expect L’Occitane-stocked ensuite bathrooms, individually controlled air-conditioning and an iPad with free WiFi (coverage limited outside of main cities of Mandalay & Bagan) – and, naturally, consummate craftsmanship throughout. Choose from having a double or twin bed, and look forward to your own relaxing space to lounge in – every suite has its own private balcony.

Owners Suite Bedroom

OWNER’S SUITE (67M² / 721FT²)

The largest suite on the river boasts a luxurious king-size bed, separate dressing and living areas, plus a big veranda with sun loungers as well as table and chairs.

Deluxe Suite

DELUXE SUITES (27-28M² / 291-301FT²)

Our 14 deluxe suites are the largest entry level cabins on the river with living space as well as either a double or twin beds, depending on preference. Each has a private balcony with outdoor chairs & table, and a separate en suite bathroom with monsoon shower. Two sets of interconnecting suites are available.

The culture and cuisine of Myanmar are reflected in the dining options available to guests each day, alongside a choice of Western favourites and international dishes.

The fragrant flavours of Myanmar, including lemongrass, kaffir lime and sweet chilli, are evoked as our chefs handpick the freshest local ingredients during our village-market visits. Specially crafted menus and inspired dining experiences encompass 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.

Talifoo Restaurant 2


Enjoy dinners a la carte in our Talifoo restaurant, with soft drinks, local beers and selected wines available on the house.

Cocktails 2


Picture windows with uninterrupted river views in widescreen make this the perfect place to pause for a decadent afternoon tea or a dragonfruit smoothie. Sign up for lectures or demonstrations and you’ll be enlightened in pure, air-conditioned comfort. Sliding doors lead from this lounge to the sundeck where you can take a dip in the plunge pool. Finish your day with a citrus-enhanced Rangoon Star Ruby in the sociable cocktail bar.



Fresh air and fine food await – from just-squeezed juices and house-baked pastries at the continental breakfast buffet to a menu of local and international favourites. Lunchtime brings an irresistible salad buffet and a spread of desserts as well as a la carte options.
