About Antara River Cruises

What began in 2003 as a dream for travel industry pioneer and naturalist Raj Singh has today turned into Antara’s luxurious, thoughtfully designed, and well-appointed fleet of ships that sail South Asia’s most iconic rivers. Antara offers its guests beautiful perches on moving water from which to enjoy vibrant and meditative landscapes, people, crafts, and wildlife. Their underlying philosophy is about bringing the region’s indigenous environments and cultures to the world, with a focus on sustainability and renowned hospitality.

Hand-built with care and precision and an eagle eye on sustainability and safety, Antara’s ships are all-suite havens of floating luxury. A fleet of beautiful, large and small vessels has pioneered cruise ship design suited to the size and volume of Indian rivers and is piloted by experienced crews. Vibrant interiors feature hand-crafted furniture, and traditional and contemporary textiles and art, mirroring the landscape and changing hues of water.
