Karma Lakelands is a unique luxury villa residences hotel, just outside of Delhi.

By Akanksha Dean

When entering the gates of Karma Lakelands, a unique luxury villa residences hotel with a golf course and a lake, I just know I need this cocoon of luxury to call my own, even if for only but a few days.

If I tell you there are 200,000 trees and plants that serve as a radiation in the stage of backdrop and endorses an eco-friendly lifestyle barely 30 minutes from Gurgaon, will you believe me? I leave the city and thoughts of Coronavirus behind as I enter this space lined with lush greens that soothe my senses at once.

Karma Lakelands is the kind of place I always wanted to visit. That feeling of sprawling on a relaxing charpoy, sunglasses on your eyes to keep the sun out, the wind disrupting your hair, a cocktail in hand.

Karma Lakelands is filled with light and wherever my eye rests, I see comforting greens and elegance in design. As significant as the indulgences are, the actual delights of living in a space like this are softer, under-the-radar, extravagances such as rare photos from across travels by Aashna Khurana Chawla of Bhiaash Bespoke Atelier; artsy furniture; or the art deco era curtains. That’s what living in such a space is about, after all.

Food and service:

What sets Karma Lakelands apart from hotel stays is that it takes the concept of Luxury Villa living to the next level, from what you eat, do and see, to what you use. The Villa itself is part of the relaxing process, replete with a big garden, balconies with large windows, all incorporating natural light and greenery. The centrepiece of the Klub Karma housing the restaurants and the gym, is a large pool that offsets the green nicely, making a picture-perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. Executive Chef Jayanandan’s vision spun to certainty at Karma Lakelands, where he takes his passion of natural, organic ingredients and converts it into his daily processes in the kitchen .Dinner at ‘Pizza Bay’ is ideal with grills and pizzas if you are in the mood for a causal meal in an alfresco setting. ‘On Kourse’ at the lobby level is always active with a mix of residents and locals catching up over excellent, gourmet food made, of course, following the new social distancing norms. All in all, it’s a whimsical pioneering option in Gurugram distinct by a merger of outstanding designs and modern-day interiors, posing luxury accommodation flattered by excellent service.
