Why book with A&K?
Travel is in our DNA. We live it, breathe it, love it, and we want you to feel to same way. Ever since our chairman, Geoffrey Kent, set up A&K in 1962, our mission has been to create holidays and travel experiences that deliver more than what has been asked for. We believe it is our people, both in the UAE and our offices all over the world, who help us achieve this. People who keep their ears to ground, who anticipate what you are looking for before you are aware of it yourself and who have the contacts to make things happen.
With so many options available, it can be difficult to know where to start. That’s where we come in. Whether you know exactly what you want, but not how to get it, or whether you are looking for inspiration and ideas, our team are here to help guide you through the process of finding the perfect holiday. We welcome the opportunity to show you what we can do.
Travel in a style that suits you...
A holiday created to fit your precise requirements - hand crafted by a
travel consultant with first-hand knowledge of the region you want to
visit;it is their job to understand exactly what you are looking for,
and, drawing on their own experience, contacts and insight, create a
trip that incorporates the experiences, the activities, the style of
accommodation, the pace of travel and the level of luxury that are
important to you.
Private Set Departures
A portfolio of journeys to the world's most iconic destinations, which
come with all the typical A&K hallmarks - exceptional guides,
insider access and seamless logistics, great accommodation - but are
pre-packaged with flights, transfers and hotels and some meals, so you
can see exactly how much your holiday will cost on given departure
dates. These journeys are perfect if you have a degree of flexibility
around your exact departure date, or are working to a fixed budget as
you will typically save around 10% compared to the tailor-made
Join a group of people who have a shared interest in the destination or
focus of the journey, accompanied by an A&K tour director and our
local and specialist guides - well suited if you enjoy meeting new
people and making new friends. These journeys are curated by our own
people on the ground all over the world, and in the case of our Land
Rover Adventures or Christie's Art Tours, with input and guiding from
their own experts.
Choose accommodation to suit your style and budget...
Great value accommodation that nonetheless delivers something a bit special -typically independent boutique hotels which ooze style, character and a contemporary ambience. While they may not offer 24 hour room service and a superfast business centre, who cares? You're on holiday!
This is what we'd describe as 'traditional luxury', accommodation with an international flavour where you can expect most of the 5-star whistles and bells such as sumptuous accommodation, fine dining, round-the-clock concierge service, spa and swimming pools.
The hotels which fall into this category take luxury to an unbelievable level;while we don't pretend these are the common-or-garden option, there are times when it seems appropriate to splash out on an experience so sublime, you'll dine out on it for years and your friends will be green with envy.
