Reservations | Vana


A personalised wellness itinerary is crafted for each guest after their arrival consultation. A treatment is pre-selected for your first day at Vana, followed by the arrival consultation the same day or the morning after. Each of our treatments, consultations and private sessions has a value in wellness weights, mostly between one and two.

Airport Assistance

At Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi

We realise that airports can be tedious, tiring and at times intimidating.

To make your transit at Delhi airport more comfortable and seamless, we can arrange the services mentioned below through Plaza Premium Lounge.

These services are chargeable and are available on arrival and departure for guests who have booked their retreat at Vana.


A Plaza Premium Lounge representative will receive you at the aero-bridge exit of your aircraft and accompany you through immigration/baggage claim/customs to the arrival terminal’s exit area. A golf cart may be arranged on request, if available.


A Plaza Premium Lounge representative will receive you at Indira Gandhi International Airport’s drop-off point. Luggage assistance will be provided and you will be accompanied to the check-in counter. Once you have checked-in, you will be accompanied through immigration to the departure gate. A golf cart may be arranged on request, if available.


In case the transit time between your flights is 4 hours or less, a member of the Plaza Premium Lounge can receive you at the aero-bridge exit of your aircraft, assist with your luggage, help you check-in for your onward flight and accompany you to the boarding gate of your next flight.

  • Airport assistance can be provided to guests traveling to Dehradun via Delhi through Plaza Premium Lounge, at Delhi International Airport for an additional charge. While booking your retreat, you are requested to please share your flight details with Vana’s reservations team. A notice at least 72 hours in advance is required for us to make arrangements.

Reaching Vana

Vana is located on Mussoorie Road, Dehradun, India. It is a 1 hour 15 minute drive from Dehradun’s Jolly Grant airport and approximately a 45-minute drive from Dehradun railway station.
Our recommended mode of transport to Vana is to fly to Dehradun airport, from where we organise personal transfers that are included in your retreat price.


There are multiple daily flights from Delhi to Dehradun, one direct flight from Mumbai and several hopping flights from Mumbai and Bengaluru. Three airlines operate flights to Dehradun: IndiGo, Air India and SpiceJet. Air India operate from Terminal 3 at Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi, and are therefore most convenient for Vanavasis transiting from international flights. IndiGo and SpiceJet operate large jets from Delhi’s Terminal 1D which are more comfortable during rainy season. Of these carriers, we find that Indigo offers a more punctual service.

Note – In December and January, we recommend travelling by an afternoon flight with a minimum layover of 3-4 hours between the International and domestic flights. Keeping an extra day between your Delhi and International travel for your return travel after a retreat at Vana is also advisable so as to avoid inconvenience in case of flight delays; thus reducing the risk of missing your international flight. We have found that morning and evening flights are often delayed due to fog. We also suggest travelling via Mumbai as the geographical location of the city allows clear skies for flights to land and take off.


There are 2 day-trains and 2 overnight trains from New Delhi Railway Station. Both trains take about 6 hours to cover the distance between Delhi and Dehradun.


The drive from Delhi to Dehradun can take anywhere between 5-8 hours depending on traffic.
For guests who wish to travel between Delhi and Dehradun by road, we can assist in arranging a vehicle with driver through ECO Rent A Car.
