Vana
Dehradun

Top 10s logo 

Vana is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Hotel Spas.

Vana is an incredibly impressive and idyllic wellness retreat located a short drive from Dehradun in the north Indian state of Uttarakhand. Retreat itineraries explore each aspect of wellbeing: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual through the use of Ayurveda, Sowa rigpa (Tibetan healing), Yoga, Natural therapies, Spa, Fitness and Aqua.

From our personal experience and our clients’ feedback, Vana’s stand out feature since it opened in 2014 is that everyone has unanimously been touched by the warmth, kindness and enthusiasm that the whole team have demonstrated throughout their stay – and some of our clients have stayed for 21 days. We are not aware of another retreat that offers better quality care and better value than Vana. By bringing together a variety of therapies, the retreat provides many paths to start one’s journey towards greater personal wellbeing. Each retreat is bespoke, curated to meet individual needs, goals, body types and preferences, starting with a consultation on arrival and continuing well after you return home.

Surrounded by clusters of reserve Sal forest, the 21-acre retreat has 82 guest rooms and suites. It has over 50 treatment and consultation rooms, an Ayurveda Center, a Tibetan Healing Center, two private yoga studios and one group yoga studio, a Wellness Center, an indoor and outdoor pool, a state-of-the-art gym, spa, a private Watsu pool, two tennis courts and paths for walking within the retreat. On top of 1-2 private wellness session(s) per day, your retreat at Vana includes all three meals, arrival and departure wellness consultations, retreat wellbeing activities, use of heat and wet areas, retreat attire daily and airport transfers.

Vana takes its commitment to ecology very seriously; all bed and bath linen is 100% organic, the retreat’s bottling plant saves over 100,000 plastic bottles a year and all food served is local, seasonal and organic whenever possible. Two restaurants, mindful cuisine, a juice bar, over 500 pieces of art, library, boutique, organic gardens and views of the Himalayan foothills mean that guests have access to a range of activities and facilities to enjoy outside their retreat. Complimentary Wi-fi is available in the rooms only.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

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 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
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
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
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
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
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
