We value the environment we exist in, and what it provides us with.
Since the retreat’s very conceptualisation, sensitivity to ecology has played an intrinsic role in our thinking. Vana’s design upholds high standards in sustainability and energy optimisation, with special effort to manage water and waste as effectively as possible.
In March 2015, Vana achieved its LEED Platinum Certification from the US Green Building Council, making it India’s first retreat to have attained this standard.
Vana introduces Vassa, for all guests on retreat between June 1 and August 31, 2016. Please click here to read more.
On the second weekend of every month, Vana will offer a 3-night introduction for those who wish to experience the retreat for the first time. ‘An Introduction to Vana’ will give guests an insight into Vana’s unique approach to wellness, cuisine and design, as well as a flavour of its treatments, private sessions and activities.
