Set in a dense Sal forest just outside Dehradun, with the Himalayan foothills of Mussoorie to our north, Six Senses Vana is a refuge for all beings, people, plants, birds, butterflies, and the odd monkey. From the moment you arrive, when your forehead is dotted with crimson, and you don your loose-fitting kurta pajamas, to the moment you leave, and your wrist is tied with a red-string blessing, this soothing space serves as a leveler, where you can come as you are and connect to each other and nature without hindrance.
Operating as Vana since 2014, the strong philosophy and loyal Vanavasi clientele were manifested by founder Veer Singh through his deep interest in and respect for sustainable farming, traditional wisdom, and nature. We will continue to nurture this intention under the Six Senses brand to help guests achieve the best physical, mental, emotional and spiritual potential.
Witness the beautiful “Ganga Aarti” (a fire offering, or ritual performed on the Ganges). It is an event opportunity to connect with deep rooted tradition in Indian culture.
Excursion to the ashram town of Rishikesh, known as “City of Divine“. Rishikesh has been magnet for spiritual seekers, and today it styles itself as a ‘Yoga Capital of the world‘.
The Jabarkhet Nature Reserve is a private eco-initiative in the higher Mussoorie hills to conserve and protect the rich diversity of native flora and fauna. The journey, albeit windy, offers sweeping vistas of the Shivalik range. About 40 species of ferns and grasses, over 60 species of fungi and mushroom (in monsoons), over 300 species of flowering plants and 100-plus species of birds have been observed at Jabarkhet.
Based on your current reality and goals for your stay, we'll help you play your retreat with the best treatments, activities, experiences, and meals for you to help you feel your best, both while you're with us, and to maintain the good vibes long after your stay.
Any opportunity to work on wellness is a great opportunity; therefore, there is no ideal time other than when you have the time. Experiencing the retreat in each season also brings its own joys and pleasures, from Vasanta (spring), Grishma (summer), Varsha (monsoon), Sharad (autumn), Hemanta (pre-winter), and Shishira (winter). Six Senses Vana lives and breathes all year round.
