SY Raja Laut
Mergui Archipelago

Top 10s logo 

SY Raja Laut is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Luxury Sailboats.

Over 100 feet in length Raja Laut is an antique gentleman’s yacht built in the tradition of the 19th century Baltic traders with elegant, classic lines and varnished timber interiors. The spacious cabins, personally tailored menu and scuba diving equipment onboard the gaff-topsail schooner ensure Raja Laut has everything needed for an unforgettable escape at sea. Behind the classic lines is a modern sailing yacht with six cabins, a 32" flat-screen TV, DVD player and an internet access point making it perfect for private charters and luxury expeditions around southern Asia.

Sleeping up to 12 guests Raja Laut has 6 double guest staterooms; 3 with queen-sized beds and the others with bunk beds. All are equipped with en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, hot showers and electric toilets. The dining area consists of two dinner tables and the galley is fitted with modern appliances including a fridge freezer, microwave and stove. Alternatively, the spacious open deck is ideal for al fresco dining and wildlife watching, and comes with a canopy which can be set up for shade.

With a crew of seven providing attentive service in a relaxed, authentic and fun atmosphere, time onboard Raja Laut offers guests unique experiences journeying through the remote natural areas of Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago with every need taken care of.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.
Diane Arbus

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
