Setting sail for the first time in early 2016, The Strand Cruise in Myanmar and sister property of The Strand Hotel in Yangon traverses the Ayeyarwady River, i.e. ‘The Elephant River’. Journeys commence either from Bagan or Mandalay, and conclude at the alternate destination. Myanmar’s majestic and awe-inspiring landmarks will become your daily vistas once aboard this luxury ship, such as architectural feats like the Shwezigon Pagoda, which represents the spiritual heartland of Myanmar.
Cabins and Suites are serenely furnished with the skilled work of Burmese craftsmen, offset perfectly by accents of lemon, green and dark wood. Four Cabin and Suite types unfold an enchanting panorama of Myanmar’s heritage and scenery through floor-to-ceiling windows. The Strand Suite is the matchless accommodation type on the ship, with sumptuous features such as an outdoor balcony and a plush sitting area and dressing area. Guests residing in this Suite can also revel in the superlative service offered, including complimentary laundry throughout the stay, a one-hour complimentary massage for two people and one night at the magnificent historic edifice that is The Strand Hotel.
The Upper Deck presents the heart and social hub of the cruise, with a custom-made pool and sun loungers available to bask in the glorious Myanmar heat. After an adventure-filled day exploring the evocative sights, take refuge in the ship’s Spa, where a therapist can tend to weary feet at the reflexology station. Feast on global flavours at The Strand Cruise’s Restaurant, and replenish on hearty meals ready for an exciting day ahead. Sarkies Bar mirrors the bar at The Strand Hotel of the same name; with an interior that showcases sleek wood and muted colours, the focus is on the discerning travellers chatting with others over a cocktail.
