Serene and calm this place takes you closer to the topmost point in the locality and opens itself to one of the most beautiful and scenic Himalayan valleys. I travelled here with my childhood friend and our kids. This cozy little place amongst the Himalayan grandeur served as the best place to catch up and connect. It is a nice blend of small comfortable villas, warm and inviting interiors, a dinner room, a library, a safe play-area and a widely spread beautifully landscaped garden. Away from the busy metro lives, Bethany is a place to relax and enjoy solitude.

Bethany made us feel at home, more because of its owners – Sunita and Amarjeet, who pampered us with nice homely food, a really comfortable stay and above all small caring gestures that made us feel really special. At dinner time, we got a chance to dine together, along with all the other guests at Bethany – which turned out to be indeed a very interesting experience.

Bethany is all about small thoughtful ideas, implemented with sincere efforts towards delivering maximum comfort and satisfaction to all its guests. My daughter loved the nice collection of books from the library, my younger one enjoyed the play area and I had the best time ever with long, never-ending chats with my friend. All in all, it made the highlights of our trip, with memories I would lifelong cherish.

Dear Manju,

Thank you for taking out the time to review us and I am very sorry for such a delayed response. However you would be glad to know that this time has been well spent in making "your home" more comfortable for all its future guests! We now have a few additions to the house which I am sure you would like.

We have also been busy in taking forward our commitment to the environment and the local community further and are working extensively with the close by villages that were affected by the floods last year. These efforts are now yielding results and we have managed to positively impact lives of more that 500 families. We would love to share all this with you in your future visits.

Looking forward to welcoming you home once again. Take care & God Bless.

warm regards
Sunita

Awesome!...Amazing!!...Overwhelming!!!...Visit to LVB is actually an experience in itself, beyond words...beyond imagination.I was here with my friend and our kids for a long-awaited and a well deserved vacation.We decided to head up to a place in the heart of the Himalayas and LVB was our first choice.We always knew we are coming to a beautiful place, but Sunita and Amarjeet(the owners)made this trip the best experience of our lives....they gave us a lot more than our expectations.
This place is nothing short of a 'Paradise'.We could feel the difference as we drove up to Landour...the gradual change in the atmosphere...the nip in the air...the breathtaking views...the serenity...the nature,away from the maddening crowd and the hustle and bustle....it was total bliss!!As we reached Landour it actually felt like mini Europe.
We stepped in LVB and we were welcomed by the ever so gracious owners Sunita and Amarjeet.'Welcome to a simple life' touches your heart as you enter this 'Home in the Himalayas'.We were highly impressed by the warm welcome we received.You just can't stop appreciating this tastefully decorated and well maintained place as you go around looking at the handpicked artifacts from all over the world;a well stocked library for all age groups; clean,cosy,comfortable rooms;a blooming garden with childrens' play area and the picturesque location.We couldn't ask for more to unwind,relax and enjoy some leisure time in the mountains.
Sunita and Amarjeet, the proud owners of LVB have put in their heart and soul in everything here. One can see their love for the place and its history.Both, being highly educated and experienced, are full of knowledge and guide you about the nearby attractions and activities. Their hardwork and dedication are visible in every minute detail which is well taken care of with a lot of thought.Their commitment to an eco-friendly living and supporting the local communities is highly appreciated.So proud of them!!
We were overwhelmed by the personal attention, which made us feel so special!The simple and dedicated staff, always happy to help,made our stay enjoyable.
Not to miss the adorable Shrusti (Sunita and Amarjeet's daughter) and her conversations at the dinner table!!
One can enjoy long chats on the recesses in the property, and the long walks up and down the winding streets of Landour are a treat for fitness freaks.We were lucky to have a wonderful barbecue on one of the evenings.The kids enjoyed it thoroughly.
This was indeed the best vacation -a fantastic getaway.
LVB is now an extended family. We brought back golden memories to stay with us for a lifetime.
I highly recommend this place. A BIG THUMBS UP to the LVB team!!God bless you all.

There is no reason to not to hold this place in excellence. Great staff, kind family, and welcoming guests. This place is build around the dinner table. You eat together and have nice conversation. They say that when you speak over a meal the food tastes better and I would agree.

Room Tip: Come when there is space available.

We had a lot of expectations right from searching, reading reviews, discussing up to booking the property. We are very happy that it was worth and much more. Sunita has put her heart and soul along with her husband and our family thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our stay.
The suite was beautiful, the food at breakfast and dinner was mouth watering and varied.
The staff and other care takers were very well behaved and knowledgeable.
La Villa Bethany,s location in Landour is akin to paradise, we experienced rain, mist, thunderstorm, cold, sunshine, saw exotic birds, butterflies...WOW

Room Tip: Suites have an amazing vies

My wife, parents and I spent a couple of days at La Villa Bethany in Landour. We really enjoyed our stay, to say the least. I found the hosts, Suneeta, Amarjeet and their family, very warm and friendly. At the same time, the service staff was extremely professional, and privacy was not an issue at all. Breakfast and dinner was delicious, the rooms were clean, hot water was always available on the tap. I was very thankful that our hosts had arranged for a custom-made golf cart to ferry my parents (who have knee issues) up-and-down the steep drive-way, at a very short notice. They were prompt about giving them a ride on the golf-cart whenever necessary. The house itself overlooks Mussoorie and Dehradun, and has several balconies with breathtaking views. For a small hamlet, I thought Landour had a lot to offer -- restaurants, viewpoints, hiking trails, celebrity homes, all within walking distance. Overall, I would highly recommend staying at Bethany if you are visiting the Mussorie area.

Room Tip: Our room (Bedell), located in the annexe, probably had the best view, and was spacious (it had an extra single bed). For large family gatherings, the suite located in the first floor of the main building is ideal.
