Extraordinary adventures, authentic experiences and refined yet relaxed elegance. At Sanctuary Retreats we like to whisper secrets about remarkable cultures and steer you to soul-stirring landscapes – all while surrounding you in the warmest hospitality. Sanctuary Ananda introduces a new level of sophistication to the rivers of Myanmar.
Custom-built with just 21 suites, our latest vessel showcases original Burmese design and contemporary chic in an atmosphere of five-star comfort – ‘luxury, naturally’ is the guiding philosophy of all our safari lodges and river cruisers in Asia.
Discover the mysteries of Myanmar, care of seven enchanting itineraries led by expert guides, as we immerse you in traditional cultures and introduce captivating characters. Cruise the majestic Irrawaddy from the Yunnan-influenced northern city of Bhamo down to colonial Yangon in the south, visiting bell-shaped temples, Chinese pagodas and Buddhist monasteries.
Our fascinating journeys on the Chindwin exclusively open eyes to some of Southeast Asia’s least-seen places. Explore orchid-rich jungles, forgotten villages and ancient towns almost as far as the Indian border, then let refreshing lemongrass-scented cloths welcome you home to Sanctuary Ananda’s on-board paradise, enhanced with every modern luxury.
