Sanctuary Ananda

Sanctuary Ananda Cruise

The luxurious all-suite Sanctuary Ananda carries guests in style on voyages of breathtaking beauty and discovery on the mysterious rivers of Myanmar. Ananda translated in Sanskrit as "bliss". It offers guests an authentically Burmese, yet exclusive experience, in line with Sanctuary Retreats’ 'Luxury, Naturally' philosophy.

Sanctuary Ananda was built by local craftsmen using age-old knowledge and traditional materials while at the same time incorporating the most modern technology, chic in an atmosphere of five-star comfort. Sanctuary Ananda offers 02 suites, 14 deluxe suites, 04 luxury suites and an ultra-luxurious Owner's suite. In every suite, lush silks, polished teak and beautiful lacquerware that celebrate Myanmar’s rich heritage of arts, crafts and textiles and Malaika Egyptian cotton sheets. Expect L’Occitane stocked ensuite bathrooms, individually controlled air-conditioner and an iPad with free Wi-Fi – and, naturally, consummate craftsmanship throughout. Every suite has its own private balcony.

Sanctuary Ananda offers six exciting itineraries including 3, 4 and 7 night ‘Discovery Cruises’ between Bagan and Mandalay as well as 10 and 11 night ‘Exploration Cruises’ which allow guests more time to explore the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Rivers.
