This is a really gorgeous resort encompassing greenery, nature, birds, animals, beach, swimming pool and much more. I attended the Sharan retreat there which was fabulous. The Swaswara chefs are amazing and cooked up delicious meals as well as helping us during our cooking sessions. All resort staff are friendly and courteous. The villas are absolutely stunning and I loved... More

Mixed feelings Food was made of natural n healthy ingredients but I found it heavy & difficult to digest. I like nature but not enamoured by earth worms n snakes. If you're allergic to things, definitely don't visit in rainy season. I have ended up with stomach infection & urticaria. Massages are good but nothing so great. Gokarna city was... More

Swa Swara really is more than a destination: such a nice place on earth, a perfect concept and a great example for sustainable tourism. We were really impressed! But finally it is the team of Swa Swara that makes the difference. All the team is caring about every single guest in such a lovely matter that they really turn the... More

Thank you once again to Swa Swara. My second stay and it won’t be the last. A truly beautiful 5-star yoga/Ayurvedic resort. Located seconds away from the gorgeous ‘Om’ beach with wonderfully appointed villa-style accommodation, meditation centres, art studio, library, boutique and yoga shalas. The cuisine is divine (for vegetarians and pescatarians). Ecologically sustainable, Swa Swara produces much of its... More

Water is sustainably regenerated and food, vegetables and herbs home grown on the large prémisses. Fantastic meals provided by a heavenly cook. Ayurvedic food, ayurveda treatments like full body massages. Teachers for... More

you get to stay in a villa all to yourself - while the bedroom is air-conditioned, the upper deck, the courtyard as well as the bathroom are private but largely open to the sky - the villas are prettily done in kerala style architecture, with lots of greenery all around. The food is all organic, largely vegetarian with some seafood,... More

SwaSwara is a very peaceful and gorgeous resort on a spectacular stretch of the Karnataka coast, just behind the famous Om Beach. The villas are spacious and minimal rustic design(they could do with a few more decorative elements), mixing more traditional elements of Konkan architecture with a touch of modern comfort. Villas have nice open-air bathrooms. However, rooms are a... More

After four hectic weeks of touring all of India's most famous sites, for my fourth time, I was ready for something different. I have been practising yogi and meditating for many years so SwaSwara seemed like good fit. It was much more than I expected.

This was surly one of our nicest experiences. Great food, individualised service, well trained and very friendly staff, wonderful massage and Ayurvedic food options and treatments. The star of the staff was a young man named Dr. Vinod, very spiritual and knowledgable, whose goal in life is to establish a hospital to attend the poor and needy. Guests are interesting,... More
