Anawrahta – The Great King

Heritage Line’s most luxurious flagship, the Anawrahta, is the embodiment of  extravagance on Myanmar’s waterways. Named after King Anawrahta, the founder of the Burmese nation – modern-day Myanmar –  this ultra-lavish cruise ship is the perfect way to explore Myanmar’s mighty Ayeyarwady River.  

Built to resemble a British colonial paddle-steamer, stunningly designed fusing Burmese tradition and British Empire opulence, the magnificent 65m (214ft)-long Anawrahta  transports discerning guests to an era of bygone elegance. Boasting the largest cabin space on the Ayeyarwady and highest crew-to-passenger ratio, Anawrahta offers the finest on-board experience in Myanmar. Spread over four expansive decks, all 23, generous-sized Staterooms and Suites provide  boundless space, luxurious touches and the height of comfort extending to each of the private balconies. Discreetly tucked away in a private area on the Terrace Deck, the sumptuous two Executive Suites and two Royal Suites are unsurpassed quarters on Myanmar’s rivers. Guests are indulged with a vast terrace,  exclusive amenities and private butler service and Suites come furnished with intricate woodcarvings and exquisite Burmese art and textiles.  

High-class facilities on-board include a large spa with sauna, ‘Kipling’s Bar’ that evokes colonial-era watering holes and an outsized pool on the ample-sized sun deck – allowing for magical views of the ever-changing scenery.
