Vana, a wellness retreat in Dehradun reopened on October 5, after closing in March 2020 as a safety measure. The retreat, nestled in the Sal forest, offers authentic traditions of wellness, medicine, and wisdom, to help people heal, feel protected and be cared for. “This time has provided us with space for reflection and to consider what Vana should be going forward with. We wish to be just a little easier to afford, thus we have revised the retreat pricing and enhanced our Ayurveda and Yoga offering and placed them at the very core of Vana’s wellness offering. Vana should be life-changing and nothing less,” said Veer Singh, Founder and Creator of Vana.
“Safety and wellbeing are paramount at Vana,” explained Prasoon Kumar Pandey, General Manager, Vana and continued saying, “As the retreat is spread over 21 acres, our vast spaces ensure privacy as well as a safe distance. Vana has also created its bubble – all employees have been tested for COVID-19 and stay inside the retreat. We have also set an upper limit to the number of reservations, to preserve the safe zone created.”
While the Uttarakhand government has lifted the requirement of a COVID test for entering the state, Vana is ensuring that every guest has a negative certificate obtained no more than 96 hours before arrival at the retreat. Vana’s offerings now begin at INR 25,000. The retreat is offered for a minimum of three nights. It includes stay, meals, personalised treatments and therapies, as well as Retreat Programs with yoga, meditation, cuisine lessons, functional fitness, talks, music and more. Certain physical wellness objectives require a minimum duration of the retreat. These include Weight Management for a minimum of 14 nights, Detox and Ayurveda Panchakarma for at least 21 nights.
