L’occitane Opens Its First Cruise Ship Spa Aboard The Sanctuary Ananda.

October 5, 2017 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Luxury boutique travel operator, Sanctuary Retreats, has partnered with French skincare brand, L’Occitane en Provence, to offer a new spa experience aboard its luxurious river cruise ship Sanctuary Ananda in Myanmar.

Named after a paddle steamer in the old Irrawaddy Flotilla, L’Occitane’s first cruise spa, Thambyadine Spa by L’Occitane, is located on the Yangon Deck, and offers a comprehensive range of therapies from two treatment rooms for guests of the 21-suite river cruise ship.

Expert therapists have been trained by L’Occitane en Provence to provide the best face and body Spa treatments in Myanmar, and the menu has been exclusively designed to embrace traditional Burmese therapies that stay true to the L’Occitane Spa experience, with treatments including reflexology, traditional Burmese massage, advanced body treatments and hydrotherapies and the brand’s signature Immortelle Secret of Youth facial.

According to Helene Goetzelmann, general manager of international spa for L’Occitane, Thambyadine Spa by L’Occitane is a natural extension of the L’Occitane brand, offering authentic ingredients fused with traditional therapies, to offer a “true voyage of the senses.”

The spa is the perfect compliment to the Sanctuary Ananda cruise experience. Custom-built using traditional Myanmar materials, the state-of-the-art ship combines all the comforts of 5-star contemporary luxury with the refined elegance of authentic Burmese design, offering 21 suites which are some of the largest of any river cruise ship in Myanmar, not to mention one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios on the river – all of which adds up to a truly remarkable and fascinating way to enjoy all this fascinating country has to offer.

L’Occitane’s exclusive Spa network encompasses 92 Spas in 30 countries with flagship spas in France, Hong Kong and Brazil, Petit Spas connected to stores with 2 to 4 cabins, and Spas by L’Occitane in luxurious 5* hotel properties, each with a unique soul and identity, matching L’Occitane’s values.

Sanctuary Ananda offers 3, 4 and 7 night itineraries on the Upper Irrawaddy River, 11 nights on the Upper and Lower Irrawaddy River and 10 nights on the Chindwin River.
