Our Story

About The Burgess Hotel

As world travelers, it has been the dream of the Jokhis to share the story of their travels through hospitality. Thus was The Burgess Hotel born, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel and Buckhead’s first boutique hotel. Inspired by a desire to live fully “in the moment,” this full-service lifestyle property veers away from the status quo and toward a more personal experience. It’s equal parts charismatic and playful, adorned with eye-catching colors and original artifacts from Asia and beyond. The design scheme is bespoke and eclectic. Lavish and inviting. Graced with original paintings and digital collages by the owner’s artist-daughter, Jessica. It all converges into a cosmopolitan elegance you’ve never seen, an aesthetic that embraces art and leisure – without feeling extravagant. The Jokhis consider The Burgess Hotel an extension of their home, and they welcome you into its thoughtfully designed rooms with open arms.


Spotlight on the Owners

Pioneers in the High-End Buckhead Hotel Scene

The perfect marriage of timeless cultural treasures and contemporary style, The Burgess Hotel reflects the eclecticism and personal styles of the hotel owners. Burges helms the kitchen as Executive Chef at Fia Restaurant, bringing to every plate his culinary expertise from Johnson & Wales and the skills he refined as a caterer to the United Nations and exclusive New York social circles. Freny’s, a Rhode Island School of Design graduate, with an eye for fashionable interiors, sourced some of the hotel's furnishings from their favorite travels. This boutique experience is complemented by the remarkable artwork from Jessica Jokhi, creating an atmosphere unlike any other in the affluent neighborhood of Buckhead.

Asian Treasures From the Owners’ Personal Collection
The Library

Balinese Tribal Lion Bench

Handcrafted by village artisans in Indonesia, this Tribal Lion Bench is a proud find from Bali. It was carved from a single length of hardwood, with four solid wooden legs completing the piece. Animals are part of daily life in these remote regions, so they often appear in wood carving, textiles, and other art. The spiral and circular details were etched to reflect traditional designs typical of West Timor.


Front Desk Mother of Pearl Inlay

This custom piece came to us from India. The mother of pearl was harvested from the sea, carefully cut from the inner shell layer of a mollusk. Its iridescence is its most stunning quality, though it is also quite strong and resilient. You can find this type of decorative furniture in many East Asian and Middle Eastern homes. Our grandparents’ homes had pieces much like this.

Dynasty Private Dining Room

Traditional Chinese Brush Paintings

Chinese brush painting is one of the oldest forms of artistic expression in China. The pair on either side of the front entrance have been in our family for many years. Kuku Bunshah, mother of The Burgess Hotel owner, Freny Jokhi, painted these cherished pieces of art when she lived in Hong Kong. Though Kuku was a commercial artist, she worked with many different mediums.

Lobby Dragon

Chinese Tessellated Bone Dragon Sculpture

In Chinese culture, the dragon is associated with benevolence and fertility. This sculpture is special because it is a five-clawed serpent dragon. These were once reserved for display in the emperor’s palace. It was believed that all dragons brought benevolence and fertility as well as symbolizing strength and protection. Our serpentine dragon welcomes our guests with the same.

Fiji Suite Living Room

Palm Tree Vase

Palm trees are ubiquitous in Bali, swaying on a sea breeze and providing shade from the sun. They are the ultimate symbol of relaxation and bliss and are depicted in all styles of art, from painting and silk screen to sculpture. Our colorful vase has been carved from the trunk of a palm tree – hollowed out, polished, and painted with an intricate hand by a Balinese artist.

Library Fireplace

Sengoku Samurai Armor, Kagoshima, Japan

Today, we consider this life-size Samurai armor, or yoroi, from the Sengoku Period a wearable work of art. But in its time, it was battle armor. Its craftsmanship is remarkable. The iron body was hand-finished with rivets. Chainmail sleeves and thigh guards were crafted from small pieces of lacquered metal linked by silk laces and cords. The helmet, or kabuto, was fashioned from eight iron plates.
