RV Samatha

RV Samatha

This brand-new, boutique river ship offers one of the finest ways to take in Myanmar’s magnificent Irrawaddy river. Designed to provide authentic adventure from the height of luxury, a cruise on board the RV Samatha is the perfect way to see the world in style. Measuring a relatively modest 61m in length and with just 60 passengers on board, it’ll feel more like staying in an exclusive, upmarket hotel than on board a river ship. And with a staff-to-guest ratio of 2:1, you can be sure of exemplary service to match. So get ready for the holiday of a lifetime.


A Choice of Fantastic Suites

Guests can choose from one of four fantastic cabin options. The smallest is the Panoramic Balcony or Window suite. Measuring a spacious 290 square feet, it offers a comfortable bed with luxury linen, floor-to-ceiling windows, ample storage space and well-equipped, modern en-suite bathrooms. The Royal Suite is the largest, measuring a whopping 524 square foot. It has dual-aspect windows and a roomy balcony complete with outdoor furniture – perfect for catching one of the Irrawaddy’s renowned sunsets.

A Host of Dining Options

If food is your thing, then you’ll be perfectly content on board the RV Samatha. From fine dining to relaxed al fresco, café-style lunches, you can have it all and more. The highly skilled chefs use local produce to create three-course evening masterpieces in the Main Restaurant, while those lucky enough to enjoy one of Luke Nguyen’s Private Dinners will sample exquisite Burmese food paired with the perfect wine at no extra charge.


There is so much to love about the RV Samatha, with its 30 lavish and perfectly appointed suites, free Wi-Fi in communal spaces and mouthwatering local delicacies. This river is quickly becoming one of Asia’s most popular river cruises and for good reason. A cruise on board RV Samatha will take you through the finest sites that glorious Myanmar has to offer, so expect to see stunning pagodas, sleepy fishing villages, spectacular wildlife and breathtaking sunsets from the comfort of this modern, stylish five-star luxury ship.
