Six Senses Vana in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, is one of northern India’s best wellness retreats. This no expense spared retreat sits on a hilltop surrounded by protected sal tree forest in the picturesque Doon Valley. While immersed in ancient wellness practices, Six Senses Vana is thoroughly modern in design. Neutral tones abound in the light-filled interiors, while furniture is worthy of a design museum. The use of natural materials helps bring the outside in, creating a sense of real calm.
Tucked away from the rest of Dehradun, Six Senses Vana aims to be a retreat you won’t want to leave. So although India’s yoga capital of Rishikesh is just a couple of hours south, most guests look no further than the spa. Here, personalised treatments range from the well-known (reflexology) to treatments developed in the region. The resort’s natural setting can be enjoyed on guided hikes.
Additional facilities at Six Senses Vana include an indoor water-therapy pool, outdoor leisure pool and fully-equipped gym. There is also a tennis court and onsite restaurant with buffet lunches and international a la carte evening menu.
Six Senses Vana has 66 rooms and 16 suites. Most have floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the sal tree forest. Balconies and terraces provide access to the open air. Special touches include the provision of a fresh set of organic cotton kurta pyjama leisurewear each day of your stay. Rooms are 49 m2, while suites start at 98 m2. The hotel’s top offering is the 292 m2 one bedroom Vana Suite.
