Day 01 YANGON – KAWTHAUNG

Transfer to the airport for your flight to Kawthaung. Upon arrival transfer to Victoria Cliff Hotel for check-in. For the rest of the day you will have a car and driver at your disposal to explore Kawthaung on your own. Overnight stay at Victoria Cliff Hotel.

Day 02 KAWTHAUNG – ZARDET KYEE KYUN (B, L, D)

After breakfast, travel to Myoma Jetty and embark the Meta IV, made entirely of Thai teak and designed by the famous naval architect Thomas E. Colvin. It is over 25 meters long and almost 6 meters wide. It features a spacious triple stateroom, 4 guest cabins, 6 bathrooms, 3 dining areas (indoor and outdoor) – with so much space you could almost forget that you are actually spending your holiday on a yacht. After being welcomed aboard, your yacht will set sail to the south bay of Zardet Kyee Kyun. Have a light lunch on board while sailing. Swim or snorkel in the bay if the tide allows it, and enjoy a sunset cocktail and your first dinner on board. Overnight stay in the south Bay of Zardet Kyee Kyun.

Day 03 ZARDET KYEE KYUN – MYIN KHWAR ISLAND – KYET MAUK ISLAND – MACLEOD ISLAND (B, L, D)

Breakfast on board; after a refreshing swim we will make our way to Myin Khwar Island (also known as “Horse Shoes Island”) for a nice swim and a quick walk on this paradise beach. Afterwards we will set sail towards Kyet Mauk Island – famous for its pristine turquoise lagoon – where you will enjoy some snorkeling time (the schedule between these 2 visits can be reversed according to tide time and best snorkelling time). Eat lunch on board and slowly sail north towards St Andrew Group, where the yacht will anchor near MacLeod Island. Dinner & overnight stay on board.

Day 04 MACLEOD ISLAND – BARWELL ISLAND (B, L, D)

After breakfast on board, transfer to MacLeod Island in the dinghy for a pleasant morning of hiking and birdwatching. Eat lunch on board and sail back east to Barwell Island. Enjoy a bonfire and sunset cocktails on the beach before hopping back on board to enjoy the special “Captain’s dinner”.

Meta IV
Meta IV was designed by the naval architect Thomas E. Colvin, who gave the vessel her beautiful shape and robust hull. She is made entirely of Thai teak, one of the best woods for building classic boats. Meta IV was constructed in 1998 as a private yacht for a Swiss businessman who made his fortune in hotels. In 2010, the Austrian skipper Herbert Mayrhauser found her at a pier in Phuket and immediately fell in love. After two years of intensive restoration work and refitting, Meta IV started her new life as a luxury charter vessel in the fall of 2012.
Meta IV measures 85 feet in length or 25 metres. That's longer than the Santa Maria, the boat that Columbus sailed into history when he discovered the Americas. In fact, with all her space, you could almost forget you were holidaying on a yacht. The sheer size, and the facilities on board, make for a holiday getaway that your family or friends won't forget.
