Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced an exclusive partnership with luxury tour operator Abercrombie & Kent to provide guests with a variety of curated experiences when they stay at select Mandarin Oriental hotels worldwide.

Offers range from culinary tours and fashion insights to art, adventure and sport experiences. Each is designed to give guests unique access to local experiences, such as a bespoke street food tour in Bangkok, sitting in prime seats for a New York Knicks game and meeting their star players, or following in the footsteps of royalty with a private tour of the Palace of Versailles.

“We are delighted to partner with Abercrombie & Kent to offer our guests innovative ways to enhance their stay. A&K is a renowned global travel brand and these are unique experiences curated by them and exclusive for Mandarin Oriental’s guests,” said Kristin Ruble, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s senior v.p. of brand and experience marketing, in press materials.

“A&K and Mandarin Oriental are old friends. For decades our guests have stayed at Mandarin Oriental properties around the world enjoying its exemplary hospitality in the best locations,” said Geoffrey Kent, CEO, chairman and founder of Abercrombie & Kent, in press materials. “This natural partnership will allow guests to experience the A&K difference—insider access that nobody else can provide, creating memories that last a lifetime.”

Participating Mandarin Oriental locations include Bangkok, Hong Kong, Milan, Paris, Barcelona, Miami, and New York.
