About - Itharana Retreat
A taste of life in hills
A Dream Gateway

Welcome To
The Itharana Retreat resort

They say leisure is an art and we couldn’t agree more. Being brought up in the quaint Himalayan Valley of Dehradun, two seafarers who had the experience of sailing the high seas and going around the world for years decided to come back to their roots. Having a deep understanding that relaxation is incredibly crucial for self-growth and longevity, they realised how people take it for granted. And this is how Itharana came to life, an Eternity Retreat nestled between the stunning backdrop of the lush green Garhwal hills. To execute the vision, an MBA and an engineer from the family joined hands and turned Itharana into a technology-friendly, sustainable dream. It is a multifaceted- resort that offers an indescribable feeling of leisure, spectacular trails for village walks, a taste of the local scene in a peaceful environment and a host of adventure activities for adrenaline junkies.

Indulge in gardening or farming around the resort while learning organic farming practices like ploughing and using all kinds of natural manure.

The aim of Itharna is to achieve a perfect balance between urban and rural life, away from digitisation yet well connected to the outer world.
