The Swaswara is located just 200 kms, a comfortable 3 hours drive, south of Goa, on the Konkan coast. It is set in 30 undulating acres of land, dotted with coconut groves and paddy fields.In the local language, Kannada, SwaSwara means inner voice or rhythm. The peaceful and natural environment will help you hear your inner voice by quietening the internal and external noise of modern life. The owners, prefer not to call the Swaswara a hotel, or even a resort , they call it an "Experience". The Resort is just off the Om Beach, with its own private path opening into a peaceful section of waterfront.
SwaSwara is certainly one of the most progressively environmentally conscious luxury hotels in the world today. From the packaging-reduced bathroom toiletries and reminders about water conservation to their own harvesting of rainwater and the on-site, bio-gas converter to recycle organic produce into cooking gas, the owners have taken great care in establishing an operation that minimises its ecological impact.
There are just 27 villa style accommodations at SwaSwara. 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 aircon 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. Each bedroom has its own small garden and terrace for you to retreat to, or take advantage of your own private yoga deck which is above your bedroom. Bedrooms are air conditioned and have ensuite facilities.
The food at Swaswara is in keeping with the natural spirit that inspires everything else here.
