Luxury Hotel Barge Andoji

Introduction by Unique Cruises Founder / Director Walter Nand

Named after the three children of the original owner, Tiemen de Weerd: Andries, Johan and Diana, the luxury hotel barge Anjodi is very much a hotel barge of the classic Dutch design and embarked on her first cruises along the historic Canal du Midi some 35 years ago.

Stepping inside you will notice that her beautiful interior makes the most of traditional materials such as African hardwoods and shining brass to create a warm onboard feel, reminiscent of a classic yacht.

The charming saloon is particularly welcoming, with its combination of richly coloured wooden flooring, elegant French dining furniture and comfortable banquette seating, as well as a fully stocked bar.

The four compact, cleverly-designed cabins, featuring hardwood panelling and brass Portholes, offer a choice of twin or double bedded accommodation, each with en suite facilities.

The spacious sundeck is shaded by an adjustable canopy and there are comfortable sun loungers and a spa pool to soak in with a glass of chilled white wine.

Anjodi is a very well-known hotel barge having achieved “film star” status some years ago following her many appearances in the television series Rick Stein’s French Odyssey, when she carried the eponymous chef on a voyage of culinary discovery through Southern France. Why not follow in his footsteps with a cruise along the Canal du Midi, a 330-year-old canal with UNESCO World Heritage status.

Like the majority of luxury hotel barges in Europe, Anjodi operates between April and October every year. Cruises typically start on a Sunday afternoon and finish on the following Saturday morning.

With a maximum of only eight passengers onboard (four rooms) Anjodi is perfect to charter for families or friends wishing to experience France in a safe and comfortable way and to creating your own unique travel memories and experiences.
