Take a trip downtown to Zegyo Market, the oldest and most important market in Mandalay. Be sure to taste the local delicacy Bein Mont, a pancake made of rice flour, palm sugar, coconut chips, and peanuts, garnished with poppy seeds.

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

Situated on the historic Red Canal, this boutique style hotel is nestled amongst lush greenery and serene water fountains. In a convenient location, close to the entrance of the Mandalay Palace, the hotel is ideally placed to explore and experience day-to-day life in this quaint city.

The colonial style building is made up of three floors housing accommodation of four types, each named after a major ethnic group in multi-cultural Myanmar. All suite interiors are decorated using local materials including handcrafted teak furniture and rattan fixtures. Kachin Suites enjoy sensual outdoor showers, while Chin and Shan Suites feature private balconies overlooking the beautiful hotel surrounds and the spacious Rakhine suites are ideal for the business traveller. Indulge in Indian delights at the rustic-yet-modern Spice Garden before heading to the Canopy Bar to enjoy a post-dinner sundowner.
