Recharge, refresh, and relieve all your stresses at the Vana retreat in Dehradun, India. If you’re looking for a lavish hotel with tons of activities, restaurants, and entertainment to enjoy, this may not be the best choice for you. Rather, Vana is meant for those who wish to truly disconnect and explore a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state of well-being. Vana means forest, and this retreat is tucked near the hills of Mussoorie, giving guests an authentic getaway experience. Unlike other hotels and resorts where non-guests can pop in and use specific facilities, Vana is not open to non-residents.
So, what can you expect at this unique retreat? Well, Vana is focused on wellness and well-being; all guests are treated with generosity and care. From yoga and natural therapies like acupuncture to aqua classes and oil massages, guests can choose the offerings best suited for their needs. Every guest is given a wellness itinerary and will have a consultation upon arriving at the retreat. Retreat objectives include natural healing, destress, yoga, panchakarma, detox, functional fitness, rest, and weight management; guests can also opt to “just being” in the serenity of this space.
These objectives are realized through authentic standalone wellness offerings - Ayurveda, Sowa Rigpa (Tibetan Healing), Yoga; these core offerings have been mindfully integrated alongside wellness practices of the contemporary world to curate holistic wellness.
Nutrition is vital at Vana Uttarakhand, India, and guests will enjoy local, seasonal, fresh, and organic produce. So if you’re looking for a vacation filled with refined sugars, grains, or oils, you won’t find it at Vana.
