Six Senses Vana to open in the Himalayan foothills in 2022

The wellbeing resort will offer Ayurveda, yoga and Tibetan medicine

IHG has announced the opening of a new Six Senses property in India. The hospitality group will reflag existing wellbeing resort, Vana.

Required to stay for a minimum of three nights, guests will be invited to partake in a daily routine of traditional therapies. For intensive physical and mental detoxification, the ‘Ayurvedic Panchakarma’ retreat welcomes guests for up to a month.

Opening this autumn 2022, Six Senses will work with Vana’s team in the meantime to weave in new treatments to appeal to a broader global audience.

Guests will be able to try their hand at making their own spa products at the Alchemy Bar

Insomniacs may benefit from the ‘Sleep With Six Senses’ programme, which will encourage guests to dismantle old habits and reverse physical or mental exhaustion using smart tools and guidance to sleep soundly and wake up ready to embrace each day.


At the heart of Vana’s concept is a sensitivity to the environment. Energy, water and waste are managed effectively in LEED Platinum certified buildings, and all textiles and solvents are sourced in compliance with sustainable standards.

These principles are aligned to the core values of Six Senses and communicated through the Earth Lab, where guests are encouraged to be the change they want to see during hands-on workshops. The experience will offer guests a connection to the local community and wildlife projects in a bid to infuse their Vana journey with purpose and positive impact.

The property joins Six Senses Fort Barwara in Rajasthan, expanding the brand portfolio in India.
