The first luxury vessel in the Ecuadorian Amazon, with a sleek, contemporary aesthetic and service-led ethos more in keeping with a boutique hotel than a typical Amazonian riverboat.
More like a floating boutique hotel than a typical Amazonian riverboat, the sleek and stylish MV Anakonda is a first-class luxury ship operating in the Ecuadorian rainforest. Its clean lines and elegant contemporary furnishings give it an up-to-the-minute feel, while its comforts, service levels and facilities put it on a par with anything the land can offer, with 25 crew attending to guests' every need.
The ship accommodates just 40 passengers in 18 spacious suites, each with a living area and huge wall to wall windows that reveal an ever-changing jungle panorama as the exuberantly forested riverbank glides gently past. There's plenty of space on deck to relax and socialise, including an observation floor with two outdoor hot tubs, an al fresco bar and a sophisticated dining room where the boat's signature fusion cuisine is served.
Cruises aboard the Anakonda begin and end in the city of Coca, an easy 30-minute flight from Quito. This ship offers a selection of itineraries ranging from 3 to seven nights, and can be included in tailor-made itineraries. Get in touch with us to include it in your Ecuador holiday.
