SwaSwara has 27 villa style accommodations. Each Villa, (and for that matter, the rest of the resort as well) is inspired by the traditional family estates that dot the Konkan coast, and if we've added air conditioning and modern fittings, they do little to disturb the authenticity of your experiences here.
Natural materials are used throughout, most of them sourced locally from the artisans of the area.The centerpiece of SwaSwara is the blue meditation dome, at the head of the swimming pool. Its circular form and blue tiles form a mandala (or cosmic sphere) of harmony, echoing the temple architecture of nearby Gokarna.
At Swaswara, you can expect personalized attention from Yoga experts belonging to several major schools. If you're new to Yoga, you can just sample a bit of it all, practising as the mood takes you. For more serious Yoga lovers, as also for people with specific ailments, SwaSwara offers a whole range of options. If you like, we'll create a therapy program just for you, complete with Yoga postures and Pranayama (breath excercises), meditations, diet and Ayurvedic massage.
The food at Swaswara is in keeping with the natural spirit that inspires everything else here. The accent is on the fruits of the land and the sea. And the focus is on freshness, pure and simple. We avoid meats, concentrating on the fresh catch of local shellfish and seafish. Fresh produce from the farms surrounding Swaswara provides the accompaniment. Hard liquor is avoided. Instead, we serve up a selection of fine wines, both imported and local (we highly recommend you try a few of the latter, specially the reds).

This program is based on the philosophy that one's being can extend itself and begin to respond with joy to the world around only when conditioning and entrenchments are transformed. Many of the philosophies and practices of the Indian tradition such as Yoga and Vedanta will be brought in to help the individual to deal with his/her existing reality, and take a step into new dimensions. The participant will have an opportunity to:
- Clear up the faculties and senses
- Learn philosophies of Yoga for self-alignment
- Reflect and review one's life
- Contemplate on the seminal ideas from the Bhagavad Gita
- Understand aesthetics as a path for the unfolding of the self
- Understand the relationship between self and environment.
As a consequence the participant will acquire skills and learn to discharge responsibilities that are directly connected to the way a person holds his/her self-image. The sense of anxiety and helplessness that are being generated through the rapid changes in the psychological environment can be countered only by re-examining the assumptions that the person lives by. Multiple role demands can be encountered and handled with grace when the potential of the person is tapped, and the frontier of activity/effectiveness is constantly enlarged.
The Programme also envisages nature walks that will invigorate the senses and Ayurvedic massages that rejuvenate the body as part of the programme. The beautiful mind is constantly renewing itself and regenerating its context. A beautiful mind inspires others to excel themselves. A beautiful mind enquires deeply and pursues truth. A beautiful mind is self-aware and manages relationships with grace.
