I booked this hotel on the basis of rating, reviews and photograph and found more than that.
Undoubtedly, it was a pleasant and memorable stay. Excellent location, away from crowded mall road , very cooperative staff. gives a feel like you are living in your personal bunglow , I would like to stay again and again.
However, should provide some add on services like message, spa etc, breakfast menu should have some more things like fruits, cornflakes etc.
Presence of night staff should be ensured. Rest is ok no issue.

Room Tip: Royal classic room are good. one should go for this room only not deluxe room.

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.
