Six Senses Vana, located in a dense Sal forest near Dehradun with views of the Himalayan foothills of Mussoorie, is a sanctuary for all living beings, including people, plants, birds, butterflies, and monkeys. Guests are welcomed with a traditional forehead dotting and given loose-fitting clothing to wear, and upon departure receive a red-string blessing. The resort, operating under the name Vana since 2014, was founded by Veer Singh with a strong philosophy of sustainable farming, traditional wisdom, and a connection to nature. Under the Six Senses brand, the resort continues to promote guests' physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Six Senses Vana offers a variety of holistic and natural treatments to promote overall wellness, including Ayurveda body dosha therapy to address imbalances and traditional Tibetan medicine by a Sowa Rigpa practitioner.

It is a place where everyone, even regular retreat-goers, can feel truly unique and rejuvenated.

Every moment is a good opportunity to focus on wellness, so there is no perfect time to visit a retreat other than when it works for you. Each season at Six Senses Vana offers its own unique experiences and pleasures, from Vasanta (spring), Grishma (summer), Varsha (monsoon), Sharad (autumn), Hemanta (pre-winter), and Shishira (winter). The resort is alive and vibrant throughout the year.
