Burdani Deluxe rooms

The appropriately named Burdani Deluxe rooms define complete relaxation. These six bedrooms  two on each floor are lovingly made up with a four poster bed, air conditioning and modern amenities to ensure a peaceful and soothing atmosphere.

“From behind the screened windows and brass studded doors, comes the sweet and mesmerizing scent of “Udi”. A locally made product concocted from a wide variety of ingredients varying from sugar, perfumes, flowers, spices and rose water is placed into a coconut shell and then onto an incense burner.”
