India's Ultimate Wellness Retreat - A Week at Vana

9 days from £2,990 per person

In our opinion Vana is the best wellness retreat in India – if not anywhere in the world. Ampersand has a great relationship with Vana’s founder Veer Singh and his team who have created a meaningful and sincere wellness experience that will appeal to those seeking balance in a contemporary environment. It is the ideal place to spend 8 days getting your body and spirit aligned, assisted by experts, specialists and therapists in the height of hospitality and comfort in an incredibly beautiful location. This 21-acre Retreat is in Dehradun set amidst mango and lychee orchards, and adjascent to clusters of reserve Sal forest with peaceful views of the lower Himalayan foothills. You will be contacted before arrival to establish your goals and, following a wellness consultation on arrival, you will have a personalised itinerary for your retreat at Vana. The team will help you set objectives for when you return home and they are happy to maintain a relationship after departure. The aim is to deliver results that are tangible and measurable and they will handhold you through your wellness journey. 

Practice Ayurveda and yoga in their purest form, along with a variety of natural therapies, spa treatments, aqua therapies, fitness, meditation and nutrition – Vana has more than fifty treatment and consultation rooms, two private yoga studios and a group yoga studio, an outdoor yoga temple, an indoor and outdoor pool, wet areas, watsu and a state-of-the-art gymnasium. In addition to the 82 contemporary design guest rooms and suites, Vana has two restaurants, which both follow wellness and Ayurvedic principles – and, importantly, deliver delicious food. Your retreat at Vana includes all meals (except wine and residence dining delivery), arrival and departure wellness consultations, a host of retreat wellbeing activities and daily treatment(s) based on two wellness weights per guests per night.

For your last night in India you will fly to Delhi to stay at the understated yet ultra glamorous Lodhi, which will welcome you back to city life in style.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
