Rhododendron Rooms

Rhododendron rooms are named after the Rhododendron tree that paints a vivid red right in front of the rooms. We have 2 Rhododendron rooms, both independent, largely identical and adjacent to each other. These are our most traditional rooms – stone floor, mud walls and bamboo mat ceiling. The rooms share a large veranda, with magnificent views of the sunset and the rolling hills to the south.
