Adventure, enchantment and ‘Luxury, naturally’ - all delivered with a quiet, understated charm and understanding of place—is the guiding philosophy of Sanctuary Retreats and our luxury Nile Cruise Boat, Sanctuary Sun Boat IV.

Furnished in a contemporary style with an art deco influence, the modern fittings and cutting edge technology on board the boutique Sanctuary Sun Boat IV are combined with sophisticated public areas with luxurious teak flooring for an elegant finish.

Harmonious colours and teak flooring are used throughout the boat which, along with modern and eye-catching furniture, makes it a luxurious floating haven.

The boat was launched in 1996 and fully renovated in 2018. Boasting floor to ceiling windows (except on the Nile Deck), the 40 luxury cabins are the perfect solace from which to enjoy a relaxing and comforting stay. The two Royal Suites of the Sanctuary Sun Boat IV are an oasis of luxury for the discerning traveller. Calm, yet vibrant tones of the furnishings provide guests with a relaxing ambience. Both of the spacious and indulgent Presidential Suites offer a splendid window into the enchanting and ancient sights during your journey.
