And now we are two. Our second birthday here at Dandelion Chandelier is August 1, and to mark the occasion, we’re sharing some of the top-performing posts in our short history. And also some posts that we’re just really proud of, or that were especially fun to write (and, we hope, to read). We’ll be focusing on one topic per day as we count down to our big day. We’ve shared top posts in Travel and Adventure; Food and Drink; and Fashion and Shopping. Next up? Sports and Fitness.

Where is the Best Luxury Wellness Retreat in the World?

Are you a Vanavasi? Should you be? These are pressing questions to ponder as we roll into the action-packed fall season.

As we head into the autumn, it seems fitting to take a look at a wellness retreat about which we’ve been hearing rave reviews from our jet set friends. A financier and close friend of our Paris Bureau Chief kindly agreed to share his inside views on Vana, an upscale wellness retreat located in North India at the foothills of the Himalaya. He shared his thoughts after returning from his third stay there.  Based on his report, we’re booking our visits right now. It is quite possibly the best luxury health and wellness retreat in the world.
