 As the sun slowly sets...Step out on to your private balcony...sip on your drink and become part of the river life unfolding around you.

“If you’ve ‘eard the East a-callin’, you won’t never ‘need naught-else. No! You won’t ‘eed nothing else But the spicy garlic smells, An’ the sunshine an’ the palm-trees an’ the tinkly Temple-bells…” -From “The Road to Mandalay”, Rudyard Kipling, 1890 While the Anawrahta is the perfect stage, the star of the show is the river. Rising early, you make your way to the sundeck, just as the first rays of gold touch the surface of the Irrawaddy. A fisherman casts his net, throwing shimmering droplets into the morning light. After enjoying this unforgettable view – and a strong coffee – you are ready to join an open air yoga or tai chi class. You pass all manner of other craft, from simple fishing canoes to boats crowded with fresh produce, household goods, giggling schoolchildren… Villagers come out to wave. Water buffaloes watch you warily. You keep a lookout for the river’s most famous residents, the Irrawaddy dolphins. When it’s time for lunch you join your fellow guests in the Hintha Hall dining room, where waiters – who now greet you like an old friend – serve tantalizing dishes from throughout Burma. As you learn about the complex cuisine, you understand more about this nation’s cultural diversity. Sunset finds you and your friends in the Kipling’s Bar enjoying freshly made cocktails – and freshly inspiring views. As the river turns from blue to violet, you understand Rudyard Kipling’s long-ago nostalgia: “If you’ve ‘eard the East a-callin’, you won’t never ‘need naught-else.”
