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.
