About Makara Queen

We invite you to embark on a journey and discover the origins of Myanmar culture and its charming traditions aboard the Makara Queen. The Makara Queen provides a series of portraits of local scenery, including dense jungle-clad riverbanks, grand gorges and endless rice paddies. You’ll also get intimate glimpses of traditional rural life played out along the riverbank, plus the occasional glimpse of a saffron-clad monk.

Enjoy your voyage aboard the Makara and unwind in one of our 22 luxurious rooms. Every room on the Makara has a private balcony and floor-to ceiling windows, perfect for taking in the scenery of the magnificent Ayeyarwady River.

The stretch between Mandalay and Bagan is rich in cultural and historical treasures, including several former royal capitals. The destinations we visit on our journey provide a deeper understanding of this fascinating country.


A visit to Myanmar would not be complete without a taste of the delectable local cuisine. Our on-board restaurant serves both international and local cuisine featuring organic and sustainably caught and harvested meats and vegetables. Complementing the fine- dining fare is a carefully selected range of wines and spirits. Please advise us before boarding the ship if you have any dietary requirements. Our dishes are made with the freshest ingredients so we only use vegetables and fruits that are in season.


After a long day of adventuring, retire to the Makara Spa and indulge your senses in treatments incorporating traditional techniques and ingredients. Beautifully appointed with traditional Myanmar silk and tasteful decor, our two spa suites are designed to provide a sense of tranquillity and leave you refreshed, renewed and ready to continue with your voyage.
