A perfect stay for a couple of days with home like cooked food. The location and the view are the plus point for the resort. A group of Monkeys which stays in the jungle around the resort added to the excitement. A heritage property in a perfect location for a relaxing stay.

I´ve been staying in the Karma Vilas Resort last week, and i can really recommand that place. It´s a small and very familiar hotel, only 12 rooms. There are rooms which go out to the terrasse and view on the valley, and other rooms with view on the forest. I´d warmly recommand a room on the valley-side. The place has... More

A bunch of us decided to go to Mussoorie in April 2014. The hotel's hospitality floored us and the staff made all effort to meet our needs, including requests for warm milk and hot water bottles. The rooms (even deluxe rooms) are clean and beautiful. The resort is ideal for those who want to stay away from the madness of... More
