The Cabins

The Cabins

Soak up the slow pace of the Burmese waterways from your cabin's floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and juliet balconies.

Locally-commissioned artworks, furniture crafted from gleaming hardwoods and luxurious silken fabrics create an inviting, authentic ambience. It’s the perfect respite after a day’s adventures.

The Experience

From the panoramic windows of your cabin, witness snapshots of life on the banks of these time-honoured waterways.

Or step off for a more intimate immersion. Spot shimmering temples that dot the landscape, or take the road less travelled to unearth hidden archaeological gems. Be tempted into the local markets by the earthy scent of Burmese cheroots, or visit a local silversmith’s workshop.
