To really retreat from the human race, the competitive workplace and everyday stress put Vana Malsi at the centre of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India. This 21-acre estate stands on a small plateau, quietly tucked away amidst ancient trees and fruit orchards. So it is perfectly tranquil, and has a philosophy that will help you find your inner peace and wellbeing.

Vana Malsi’s wellness spa, for example, has an extensive range of natural healing treatments, beautifying, de-toxing, and fitness programmes. Ayurvedic therapies combine with Tibetan healing to revitalise your spirit and energise your soul. Sun worshipping, swimming, exercise and yoga all heighten your sense of wellness, whilst Vana Malsi’s natural food and inclusive ambience will remind you that you’re enjoying a holiday as well as a retreat.
