Find yourself in a world like no other, filled with the mystical exotics of South East Asia. Guests are spoiled for choice for positions on the vessel to admire the passing marvels of remote towns and extravagant natural scenery. Take a break from the wonders of the external environment by experiencing the wonders inside the ship, with tastefully decorated interior and attentive crew, guests will soon ease into life in the slow lane of river-cruising.
Named after the former capital of Myanmar, Amarapura, the AmaPura is a custom-built vessel that cruises the Irrawaddy River, the largest river of the country, which hosts its own species of dolphins. Built in 2014, the ship is the perfect blend of modern luxury and traditional motifs. Boasting accommodation categories made up entirely of suites - and capacious sized ones at that - the 56 guests on board can experience the lavish lifestyle with a comfortable, community atmosphere.
With all guests enjoying the luxury of suite accommodation, options include having a suite with French Balcony or a step-out balcony (both suites measure a grand 285 square feet). Alternatively, guests can indulge in the phenomenally sized 420 square ft. suites located on the Upper Deck, which incorporates the best of both worlds – both balcony types from which to marvel at the passing scenery.
Each room includes a phenomenally comfortable bed, an interactive television with complimentary movies, ample storage space and a luxurious bathroom, providing a realm of peace and tranquillity to return to after exciting excursions. The larger suites also include a bathtub so passengers can ease into warm waters as they cruise through the wonders of South East Asia.
In the air-conditioned Main Restaurant, the on-board expert chefs create culinary masterpieces to wow their guests. With both gourmet Western classics and a fantastic fusion of regionally inspired Asian flavours served to the highest quality, there is something for everyone - all guests will enjoy a magnificent meal on board the AmaPura.
Enlighten yourself about the history and culture of Myanmar with an informative, English-speaking guide included at no extra cost. Immerse yourself with on-shore excursions, including travelling in style in a horse-drawn carriage, witnessing the impressive art of pottery-making, getting a closer look at the local mountains and marvelling at the tranquillity of a beautiful temple at sunset.
Be welcomed back on board with a cool drink and a refreshing chilled towel, just one of the personalised touches to be expected on board the AmaPura. You can also choose from a range of excellent cultural experiences on board too; be dazzled by the colour and artistry of a traditional Burmese puppet, or attend an in-depth discussion of Burmese culture in a new and refreshing way in the Lounge.
Indulge in the regional specialities, with the traditional Asian spa treatments providing total relaxation and rejuvenation for the mind, body and soul.
Enjoy a drink in the Main Lounge with a new-found friend, or use the relaxed space to delve into a favourite book. Head upstairs to soak in the sunshine on the Sun Deck, lounging with a refreshing cocktail as you observe the magnificent scenery glide by.
