Surrounded by sal forests and mango and lychee orchards, Vana, Malsi Estate is set on a 21-acre estate on the side of the Uttarakhand Mountains in Dehradun India.
Esteva i Esteva Arquitectura, a boutique design studio from the Balearic Islands in Spain, created Vana Malsi Estate to not merely be surrounded by nature, but to be one with it. This Modernist palace for wellbeing features personalized wellness itineraries that make use of the haven’s pools, treatment rooms, yoga pavilions, and wellness consultants to ensure each stay rejuvenates the mind, body, soul, and spirit. Living spaces are defined by contemporary aesthetics, natural materials, and thoughtful simplicity.
