Maiden Myanmar voyage on board Sanctuary Ananda


Special Launch Offer Now On Sale

There are less than 6 months to go before luxury cruise and safari specialists Sanctuary Retreats’ new custom built ship, Sanctuary Ananda sets off on its maiden cruise in Myanmar. Work on this new ship offering the largest entry-level suites on the river is on schedule for its first sailing on 15th November 2014. The ship is designed by two Burmese brothers who are overseeing the building work in a local shipyard, using traditional materials combined with modern technology to ensure she can navigate Myanmar’s rivers.

Named after the Ananda Temple in Bagan, Sanctuary Ananda offers 3, 4 and 7 night itineraries on the Ayeyarwady as well as 10 and 11 night exploration cruises on the Chindwin River. Sailing every full day on each itinerary, guests on board will have time to combine the ‘must see sights’ with visits to small villages.

Marco Rosa, Senior Vice-President for Sanctuary Retreats commented, “Our first luxury river cruiser in Myanmar is the only all-balcony ship on the Ayeyarwady and will offer one of the highest staff to guest ratios on the river. Guests will be able to explore this vibrant and culturally rich destination under the guidance of experienced local Burmese guides.

To mark our forthcoming launch, we are currently offering a gift of $400 on board credit for each suite or deluxe suite and $500 for each luxury suite for selected sailings in November and December 2014 which can be redeemed against spa treatments and premium brand drinks on board.”

Key staff appointments have been made including the Ship and Hotel Manager, Cruise Director, F&B Supervisor and Executive Chef with extensive training in progress to build a team who will deliver Sanctuary Retreat’s ‘Luxury Naturally’ philosophy.

There are 21 spacious air-conditioned suites including the exclusive Aloungpayah Owners Suite on board Sanctuary Ananda which all offer Wi-Fi and a private balcony.

With only 42 guests, a high level of personal service is ensured. Prices start at £1,516 per person, based on two people sharing a Suite including all sightseeing as stated in cruise itinerary, all meals, soft drinks and local beer and wine.
