Very nice, peaceful place to spend a few days in absolute relaxation. The propriety is really beautiful, green, clean, very close to the beach. Very nice common parts (restaurant, yoga rooms...). The villas are fantastic, very privative, with a small patio and 2 terraces. Several yoga sessions a day. The staff is attentive and helpful. The things that I liked... More

I've been home from India for four days now and all I want is to go back to SwaSwara. The level of service provided by all staff was more than I could have imagined. Chef Joy and his team created the most delicious meals. Each meal was a delight. The staff working the desk, the team at the spa, the... More

During new year time I booked one resort for my client from States in Kovalam for their Honey Moon. My client name Mr. Dan just wanted to stay in that particular resort in Kovalam Beach (East Coast) or better than that. Because of busy touristic time it was impossible to get rooms there and any other decent place was fully... More

Nature lovers and those who look forward to a quiet and serene holiday try Swaswara at Gokarna . This resort is located very close to the OM beach about 3 hrs from Goa. An eco friendly resort in every possible way!! Rain water harvesting into two large ponds doubles up as a soothing water body close to the villas which... More

SwaSwara is probably the most unique and amazing destination I have travelled to. This was at the beginning of my first trip to India and to be whisked away to this delightful, almost hidden part of the coast was magical from the minute we stepped out of the car. The resort exudes a feeling of calmness and groundedness (that is... More

It's not easy to write about SwaSwara because it is simply so unique. It is different to anything what we experienced before. It is probably the most impressive and exciting travel experience we had so far... It all starts with the location and the setting which is simply stunning. Situated at one of the most beautiful coasts, in an area... More
