Sanctuary Ananda (long), The Chindwin Myanmar, Rivers
Info : Sanctuary Ananda (long)
As well as their regular 7 day Mandalay-Bagan-Mandalay loop (which links their 3 and 4 day short Irrawaddy cruises together), on a few set dates during the year, the luxurious Sanctuary Ananda journeys up the remote and less-explored Chindwin River.
The 10-night cruise will take you from Mandalay to Bagan via Paung Pyin, an exciting trip passing remote jungles, tribal villages and rarely-visited towns with rich histories spanning thousands of years.
Whilst on board you can expect beautiful, well-stocked luxury bathrooms, sumptuous furnishings and the kind of luxury amenities you’d expect from a high-quality hotel. Alongside the several dining options, you’ll have access to spa treatments, workshops, cooking demonstrations and an atmospheric panorama lounge for sunset drinks. There is a plunge pool on board and guests are treated to butler service and state-of-the-art entertainment technology.
The Sanctuary Ananda 10-night cruise along the Chindwin River offers a level of luxurymaking it a great choice if you want to get well off-the-beaten-track in Myanmar but don’t wish to miss out on the comforts, luxuries and space you’d find at a five-star hotel. Talk to Experience Travel Group about combining this lavish boat cruise with an equally opulent Burmese land adventure.
Please note that due to low water levels on the Chindwin, departure dates for this cruise are quite limited. Call us for details.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
Hotels were all first rate. Bagan Thande and Inle Lake were both charming and well-run. Bagan Thande is a superb hotel! All our guides and drivers were first rate too. They went out of their way to show us around and educate us on Burmese culture and the sites were were seeing.
