Northern India

Vana is a wellness retreat unlike any other. Designed for those overwhelmed by the challenges of living in the modern world, it’s a refuge for guests to be still and heal in the presence of nature.

Programmes are individually customised with no pre-planned schedules. Each guest receives an in-depth consultation on arrival where individual goals are discussed – to de-stress, lose weight, detox or to heal through holistic and ayurvedic medicine. There are weekly activities, otherwise guests can simply spend time in quiet introspection, an important element in Vana’s healing method.

Living spaces, dotted throughout the gardens and surrounding jungle, are bright and contemporary, decorated using natural local materials. This neutral palette evokes a sense of calm without conflicting with the natural surroundings.

Food is served based on Ayurvedic body type, medical conditions and personal retreat objectives. The philosophy is not about deprivation but sensible eating – food which is healing whilst still bursting with flavours. Ingredients are locally sourced, seasonal, fresh and organic.

Why we recommend Vana

“The only apt word to describe a stay here is ‘transformational’. As soon as you arrive, there is the sense of being completely disconnected from the rest of the world. Days are gentle, yet the retreat is astonishingly effective in helping you achieve your aims. Their eco-friendly stance and reverence to nature is felt in everything from the treatments and food to the décor. Staff are incredible, effortlessly managing the balance of remaining discreet, yet always on hand when needed.”
