“Very refreshing & relaxing vacation at Karma Vilas”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Karma Vilas is a lonely boutique resort with a very plush & serene setting. Rooms are quite large & spacious with all the modern comforts. The service time is slightly long but one does not mind that as you can laze around the property. The view from the rooms is stunning. We booked 2 Deluxe rooms opening into the oak forest and we left as if we were in a tree house. You could sit in the balcony of your room all day doing nothing. We had a very refreshing & relaxing vacation at Karma Vilas. Looking forward to visiting Karma Vilas again in the near future.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

“Karma villas mussoorie is a perfect weekend getaway. A very quiet, peaceful & serene place with some breathtaking views of the Valley. With sit -outs/ in every nook & corner one can spend the entire day just lazing around. Our rooms had a great view opening to the oak forest thereby giving a very soothing effort. Food & service is great. Karma Vilas is our preferred weekend destination from Delhi for times to come.

“We are looking for a break from office monotony and after reading karma vilas trip advisor reviews, we decided to visit this resort. The moment we walked into karma vilas we all realized that we made the right decision. Karma Vilas location is unmatched with fantastic views all around. Rooms are built colonial style with high roofs and ventilators. Staff was extremely courteous & efficient going out of their way to make us comfortable. Even food was prepared as per our taste & requirement which no other resort does. Thanks –up to Karma Vilas & its entire team.”

One of the best views of the valley in Mussoorie, right from my room. That is something!
It is a peaceful place. A lawn in pines is a nice place for book lovers like me as well as my wife. If you are in a group, a famous yoga/meditation center is next door. Also an interesting spiritual art gallery and a peaceful temple.
It's at few minutes walk from mall road where you have restaurants and most of the happening places in Mussoorie. My son also enjoyed hunting videos in the in-campus video library in the evenings.
Staff is nice and non intrusive. With advance notice, you may even get on-demand items in dinner that are not in the menu.
I stay there everytime I go to Mussoorie, just because we have easy options of a peaceful or a happening time as and when we want it.

Room Tip: The rooms at the top are for honeymooners. Best place for family is close to the lawn/cafe.

We stayed here for 2 nights in November. The place is well located, away from the kitschy, noisy hustle and bustle of Mall Road. It's on the side of a mountain overlooking the valley. You can see pretty much the entirety of Dehradun from the balcony. Our room doors opened right up to the front garden and that amazing view.

The room itself was very nice and well appointed. It was quite large. Our room had a king size bed as well as a twin size bed. The beds were quite comfortable and the comforters/sheets were akin to something found in a 5-star.

One thing that was very slightly bothersome were the monkeys. Not much the staff can do, but if you have little ones that are easily scared by monkeys, that could be a problem. The monkeys themselves never bothered us directly, I was just thinking it could be scary for a little child.

To take a minute and address another review -- this place is a small, family run hotel. It's by no means a large operation. As such, there are some limitations on amenities. We were treated to a very friendly staff, however, the service isn't around the clock. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, but the staff asked us to inform them ahead of time if we were planning on dining with them for specific meals. In this case, it felt like staying in a guest house. A beautifully appointed, private, safe guest house with a heck of a view.

All in all, I'd highly recommend this place. Great value for the price and the view itself is worth it.

Room Tip: If necessary, pay extra for a room with a view. Trust me, it's worth it.
