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.
What our clients say
Most memorable experiences: Snorkelling with huge sea turtles and iguanas whilst they were feeding with sea lions, penguins and flightless cormorants also coming to join in the party.LA, London
We had a wonderful time…we thought the guides we had were among the best we have known anywhere; we went for the Galapagos and would admit to mainland Ecuador being a bit of an “add on”, but we thought it was fabulous and would return-Quito was so much better than we expectedPW, Lambeth
The Galapagos was as expected beautiful and interesting but we were pleasantly surprised by the visits to the rose plantation and panama hat factory which turned out far more interesting than we had expected. also the scenery in mainland Ecuador was breath-taking at times.MW, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Very hard to say! Loved Hacienda Venecia, and Napo, and Bellavista, and the Avenue of the Volcanoes.DL, London
Highlight?: The trek up the Chimborazo with mountaineering legend will live with us forever!!TT, Bolton
Highlight?: The Napo Lodge experience. It exceeded our expectations and we were very lucky to have dry weather.HB, Todmorden
