A&K Top Tip

The Fruit Shakes served at the hotel's bar are all locally grown and in season, blended and created in front you. Papaya and Mango were our personal favourites, a nice refresher after a day exploring Bagan's mysterious temples.

Guest Testimonial

We loved the way A&K presented their documentation in the travel wallet and the lux' luggage tags looked the business. The "Small touches" count! Every one likes to feel special from time to time and we certainly were made to feel as such by all at A&K.Thank you Vicky Smith
