Travel Experience

Mrauk U is a place of extraordinary significance for Burmese and Arakanese history, now old through the ancient architecture and artefacts found by initial archaeological endeavours. An un heralded ancient site to rival Angkor Wat or Bagan, still so untouched that today you are more likely to see inhabitants praying at any of the half-millennia-old stupas than another visitor

Responsibility

To provide electricity we collected discarded rice husks from local farmers and constructed a rice husk generator. We restored two teak river boats to expand our boutique hotel experience onto the river and allow visitors to explore the area in comfort and style.

Business Case

Commissioned traditional stone craving and local artwork bedeck the hotel and food is locally sourced where possible.
