ABN Charaidew I is a heritage passenger vessel from the 1970s that's been completely renovated to provide guests an experience of tasteful riverine living.

Bearing 10 air-conditioned twin-bedded and 2 double-bedded cabins with en-suite bathrooms, ABN Charaidew I is purposefully intimate in size, so that guests can rediscover what it means to stay in serenity, far from the bustle of life on shore. 


All cabin accommodation is on the upper deck, as is a bar and saloon opening onto a front deck. A dining room with full-length opening glass doors on each side is on the lower deck, while a large top sundeck offers additional comfortable open-air seating in shade or sun.


Local handloom fabrics specially woven for us and comfortable cane sofas and chairs contribute to the attractive decor.

Guests who are interested in history will observe that ABN Charaidew I still retains a traditional wheel (or helm), and instructions to the Driver stationed in the engine room is still passed on by the Master of the vessel by shouting into a brass speaking tube. Its polished brass engine room, telegraph and steering wheel were untouched during renovations as a mark of respect for the ship's heritage.
