Places to Stay
Hand picked unique stays for you.
Karma India is all about special India experiences that stand out among the cacophony of India travel ideas. In fact, we are so dedicated to the idea of India experiences that everything, including the featured accommodations here, often seem like experiences as well. This being the case, we have made a deliberate departure from listing out hotels and other accommodation that clutter most travel sites and highlight only those that appeal to our primary goal of highlighting India in experiences.
However, we arrange any type of accommodation anywhere in India and work with most budgets and all kinds of travel. Karma India hopes to deliver Karmic experiences as well as wondrous finds across the vast sub-continent.
