I have just come back from Burja Haveil. At the outset, without wasting much time, I must tell you it is a good place, “value for money” “Paisa Vassool” . Having read mixed reviews at the various sites my expectations were very low. We had a great time!!! It is a great value for money weekend get away. Where would you get to live in a 200 years old Haveli within 160 km from Delhi, one night two days in a Super Delux Room, for just Rs. 3200.
The Haveli is in the Burja village adjacent to the Burja Garden which is a stone throw away distance. A small road (less than 10 meters wide) separates the Haveli from the Bagh . The Bagh is in the Mougal style it is well maintained. The grass is lush green with a lot of trees ( Amla and Banana are noticeable). The swimming pool in the bagh is dis-functional. I was told that a new swimming pool would be constructed before the next season.
The Bagh is reasonably big (a few acres) the Haveli is comparatively small (less than an acre). The Haveli is two storied square in shape with a court yard in between. The courtyard has grass on each corner and a fountain in between. The rooms are much larger than expected and the bathroom is bigger than some of the rooms. All basic amenities have been provided for: split air conditioner, min refrigerator, tv with cable connection, large bed, dresser , seating chairs . The toiletries are average. Nothing astounding but everything reasonable and necessary to make one comfortable is provided.
Haveli is well maintained, neat and clean. Food is great for an Indian pallet. In the package any thing and everything on the menu card is free, order what you want it is not buffet …………… they would be happy to customize dishes to your taste. Do not miss to order Burja special dish …………… Non veg is not the part of the package but everything is available on orderand would be charged separately.
The experience is better than a hotel for the reason the family which has owned the Haveli for the last 200 years still resides in it and manages it. The staff is courteous and has been associated with the Haveli and family for generations. There is piped music in the courtyard and special arrangement for entertainment by the local artist.
If your expectations are of Neemrana or Samode you may be disappointed but if you are looking for value for money you may end up with consumer surplus. To end it is highly recommended for a weekend get away.
