Burra Sahib's Bungalow
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Jorhat
Reviewed 18 September 2012

The bungalow was earlier the General manager's bungalow i'm told and was later converted into a heritage bungalow for tourists. A wonderful British bungalow with lawns and now a 1 year old newly made Golf course.

The cottages are neat and clean and you have a good view to the course. The railway track is close by and is lovely in the night when you see the lights streaming by.....
The course is almost like a private course as there are very few players.They have a coach and a driving range too. The other facilities are a Bar ...SPA,Gym,swimming pool, and of course you could go around for a drive to the tea factory or garden tour.
The Jorhat Airport is about 45 mins away and the bungalow is peacefully tucked insideabout 10 kms off the main highway.
The food is good and the staff is friendly. The service though could be slightly more efficient....but am sure that is something one can manage.
There are other places of interest with 1-2 hours of driving, like Kaziranga, Sivsagar , Majuli river island or you could check out some local handicrafts at Jorhat .

I have lived in Assam and have seen many tea gardens. Even then I was stuck with the beauty of this place which combines history, beauty, greenery and solitude. The room was comfortable, staff very friendly, the place secure, had good food to offer. The best thing was that it is really away from civilisation and the only sound you hear is the sound of birds chirping. The golf course is very well manicured and I know how painful and expensive it is to keep it that way. Booking was smooth, finding the place was easy. I really had a great time.
This is an oasis within an oasis. USP of the place is serenity which allows you to relax. My most favourite part was the passing of trains at night behind the cottage.
Kudos to the caretaker lady who is a perfect fit for the post. She too is a part of the history of tea.
When you visit and talk to her then you will know why.

Room Tip: All rooms are same and good

We, a group of four, spent our new years day in this resort. The location and landscape are really beautiful.
Although, we didn't try our hand in golf, we strolled through the place. The area is yet to become fully functional, as we saw that the resort was inaugurated only on 01.11.2011.
The staff are hospitable, no doubt. But still the services are yet to be improved.
They charged Rs. 650 per person at the entry gate itself, which included the lunch cost. This is almost double of what is charged by the other good resorts in and around this place.
In IORA, the buffet lunch is charged at Rs.350, while that in Grassland, it was about Rs. 300.
The buffet lunch was O.K. But frankly, it was not enough to meet the standards of a Rs. 650 buffet.
Altogether, I can finally say that the location might serve a good treat for a person coming straight from metropolitan cities/ concrete jungles, but not the same for a person from other places of North East India, or those coming from hilly areas.

After two weeks of rough travelling in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, we took a break at the Burra Sahib, now known as the Kaziranga Golf Resort. An 18 hole golf course had just opened in November and the hotel was still working out some kinks with the electricity, internet, and swimming pool. The massage and morning yoga were quite good and the staff was able to put on a very good cooking class for us of Assamese cuisine. The rooms were very comfortable, the bathrooms could have been larger. I felt the pricing was quite fair and I would return.

Room Tip: There are only 8 rooms at present but there are plans to build some additional rooms with bigger bat...

We recently stayed here with our 3 year old daughter hoping for a memorable tea garden experience. It did not deliver. I'll admit that my review is tainted by high expectations created out of the unreasonable sums we had to pay upfront to book, but I'll try to keep my review as objective as possible.

The place is far from anything and in the middle of gorgeous tea plantations, which would be great if there was anything to do at the bungalow: they charged 600 rs a person for a tour of the tea factory(!), there are no books or games or anything in their extremely uncomfortable sitting areas. They had the power generator off most of the day, and the pool is a frog hatchery! In order to do anything we had to hire a car for the whole day, for which they tried to overcharge us. The staff, though sweet and kind and eager to please, spoke almost no English and had virtually no way to communicate any of the activities nearby. They had no maps, guidebooks or anything but a worthless little Assam Tourism brochure. At their recommendation we drove the 2 hours to Sivsagar which was nice but nothing to write home about. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to us or them (our guidebooks did cover Assam well) the Gibbon wildlife sanctuary is only 30 minutes away and hosts seven different primates. We learned of this in Jet Airways flight magazine on the way back to Mumbai. Other sources of irritation were the loud buzzing of the generator outside our window all night, the pee-colored bathwater, the slatted doors open to the air with no mosquito nets over the bed, and the lack of an alcohol license. They had a few warm beers on hand, but c'mon, we're in the middle of nowhere!

Now, if you are a seasoned traveller in India (as am I), surely you understand that one must be tolerant of a few inconveniences and keep expectations low, but really, this place is barely functional, good enough for 1 or 2 stars, but they billed us rs 7,500 PER NIGHT (half-board). Does this sound like a 160 USD /night accomodation? I thought not. Meanwhile, we had recently stayed at the Wild Mahseer near Nameri National Park, and the Iora at Kaziranga and enjoyed those fully.

Stay at your own risk.
