Karma vilas is a very strategically located property. Just 1 km before the mall road on mussoorie-dehradun highway, karma vilas has a private forest of pine & oak trees surrounding the colonial bungalow from 3 sides, with the front side opening to the valley. The view of doon valley from karma vilas is simply breath taking. The rooms are very... More

we decided to stay at karma vilas based on the reviews we read and it really lived up to the reviews. A quite, peaceful place away from the city, Karma Vilas is a perfect destination to spend a relaxing weekend in the lap of nature. Karma Vilas is a very exclusive resort with just 11 rooms spread over areas of... More

Amidst the dense deodar forest nd away from the hustle bustle of the city, the resort exceeded our expectations... The rooms were spotlessly clean nd the courtyard very relaxing nd fresh. Taking in the fresh morning air revitalised the soul. The service was prompt nd efficient nd the food freshly cooked. since it is not a 24-hour restaurant, one doesnt... More

My husband and I moved to this hotel after we realised the one we'd booked into was a dump. It is just off the main road coming into Mussoorie, so there is a little street noise, mainly trucks. We stayed in one of the rooms opening out onto the courtyard. It was just lovely: spotlessly clean, comfortable, cosy and just... More

“Karma Vilas is a magical place. The forest and the location of the property insulate it from the noise of this touristy town. Karma Vilas does look all British & elegant with its Brick red reception, to the garden area with it’s antique cast iron furniture. The ambience too, inspite of the grandeur of the building itself, is comfortable. It’s... More

I stayed in Karma Villas for two nights, from 30th July to 31st, the hotel is nothing like the reviews below, it was off season and the hotel was completely empty, I had booked the deluxe rooms and on arrival we were upgraded to the royal orchid rooms which was great, but that's where the good part ends, we made...

Karma Vilas, with it's old world charm completely bowled us over. With an impressive colonial bungalow and large rooms with excellent service, it was truly "Re-live the Raj Experience". One could laze around the property for days, doing nothing, just soaking in the place and enjoying being in the middle of nature. Karma Vilas has an excellent location, away from... More

Wrapped by pine and oak trees, Karma Vilas is blessed with a fantastic location. The view of Doon Valley from the lawns is breath taking. rooms are spacious and very well furnished. Karma Vilas gives you a feel of the old world charm with fire-place, high ceilings, pillars and wood. Ford is good. Just like home food. A brilliant place... More

Karma Vilas, a beautiful, well maintened heritage property in the middle of pine & oak forest. We had a great time with friends there. The bonfire and bar-be-que night at Karma Vilas was a memorable experience. The service is good, staff is very helpful and went out of their way to organize a bonfire night for us.
