A world where luxury is time to yourself - time to think, time to let go, time to heal. Welcome to SwaSwara, located on Om beach, Gokarna in Karnataka. Here, 26 acres of greenery and 24 villas inspired by the homesteads, tradition and craft of coastal Kannada region of Karnataka will open up for you the simple joys of life like never before. A holiday that is not about losing yourself, but finding your self - one that is not an escape, but an introduction. At SwaSwara, the noises of the modern world give way to the whispers of the sea. All that breaks the silence is the rhythm of rolling waves, the meditative hum of the birdsong and at times, the chiming of the temple bells of Gokarna faraway. A resounding quietude that makes you aware of the inner sound of your being, drowned out as it is by the din of daily life. Here, under the guidance of a team of well-trained doctors, yoga instructors and therapists you'll discover yourself through Yoga, Pranayama, Ayurveda, naturopathy, meditation, healthy eating, interactive cooking, guided art sessions and communing with nature - experiences that will invoke your ‘SwaSwara’, the music of your soul.

We were family of 3 on a road trip from Mumbai to Belgaum- Sringeri and reached Swa swara at night. Warm welcome by staff and thanks to Ms Tejashree to explain the activities available in resort. We checked into Konkan villa B6. Its a a beautiful villa and captures the rural ambience so well. However my wife and son became extremely sick with the long travel and just took rest for the 2 days. So we couldn’t really enjoy the facilities of this wonderful resort . Many thanks to Peter for giving ORS satchets and to chef for preparing curd rice and also the fruit baskets . My family recovered fast and fit to travel back to Mumbai. Such a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. 27 acres of pure greenery.Entire staff is so courteous and friendly. thanks to the wonderful staff and also the peaceful atmosphere that allowed complete rest to family . We will definitely come next time and enjoy staying in Swa Swara and do sightseeing in Gokarna.

Many thanks to team for the good care.

Amazing experience at SwaSwara.
The rooms were airy with a great view of rain harvested pond at the back. The pond has clear water and was tempting to get in but that wasnt allowed. (perhaps that's why the water was so clean and transparent). Very cosy feeling overall. The attic room was great to just laze with a book.
Staff was very courteous and service was just great.

Food options in restaurant was limited and expensive, but great taste.

The pool was closed due to COVID. The beach was about 300 mts from room but getting into water was not allowed at that time due to rough seas.
There was a reasonably well stocked library as well.
A walk at night along the road was pitch dark, mesmerising with fireflies all around and a starlit sky.
Every little thing in the resort, in the rooms, pathways, common areas etc was made thoughtfully keeping the guest in mind.
Would love to visit again.

Again lovely and memorable stay in cozy CGH earth hospitality. Awesome location spacious rooms yoga activities Ayurveda messages and simple food allowed us to detoxify our body and soul as well.

We love CGH locations as they neatly maintain property with absolutely cooperative young crew and maintain ecological balance. They are genuine professional in responsible tourism.

The property Swaswara is on the shore of Arabian Sea. Beach just 300 M away. Beautiful swimming pool. Spa and yoga with experience personals keep you busy throughout the day.

The reception staff, restaurant staff and housekeeping & cleaning staff very cooperative.

Mahabaleshvar Shiva temple abd Ganpati temple near by are worth visiting. Do visit famous Gokarna beach.

We stayed six nights and bring home wonderful memories along which we will cherish life time.

Our compliments to all at Swaswara.

What an amazingly relaxing vacation we spent at Swaswara!!

Spent 3 relaxing nights at Swaswara and went back home wanting to experience it once again. The best part of the property is the location. Set right next to Om Beach,  the property is located inside a huge green space with flowers,  ponds,  and fruit trees. Perfect for walking around! There is easy access to the beach and if you like yoga or sunsets you must spend some time at the Meditation Hill viewpoint.

The rooms are actually villas where you get a bedroom,  a bathroom,  a closet space, a sit out with a garden and another sitout on top. The space ensures you have total privacy and large enough spaces to meditate, or just relax. Our room overlooked a small pond that is used to harvest rainwater and from here you can hear the sounds of the ocean.

This is primarily a wellness retreat but if you are looking for space where you can enjoy solitude and luxury then check this out. Food is unbelievably tasty even though they hardly use any masala or oil. We were surprised to see how they cook without oil during our cooking sessions.

Activities include yoga, meditation, pottery, cooking classes, nature walks,  beach walks, swimming, art and craft, and lots more.

So much to do and much more to experience. In short,  if you want a luxury coupled with natural surroundings then Swaswara is one of the best places in coastal Karnataka.

We were 4 families who had visited SwaSwara at GoKarna in the month of October 2020 . I must stay the cottages were excellent , contemporary design with huge space. The king size bed can easily accommodate 2 adults . The cottages is the most highlighted aspect of this resort

The food is very different from normal hotel or resort food as this is a wellness resort so they will cook food which is good for human body & healthy with no compromise on the taste
The staff was very friendly & ensure that they had accommodated all our small request to ensure we were happy in those 3 days

Most of there outdoor activities & seating were closed due to restrictions because of Virus but i can image under normal circumstances it would have been such a nice experience to have those lovely open sky settings

I don't think that there would be a better place in GoKarna other than SwaSwara

Beautiful resort in the middle of nature. We stayed in one of the villas overlooking the lake where they do rainwater harvesting. We liked walking around in the greenery of the resort. The beach is nearby and the resort has a private access to the beach. My daughter enjoyed the pottery session and cooking classes. The food was having a limited menu but was very tasty and of adequate quantity. The open bathroom is interesting and the only problem is that insects come there. It would have been nicer if the bathroom was next to the bedroom (we had to go out of the bedroom to a veranda to reach the bathroom). During our stay, it was raining quite frequently, so would have liked to have the ability to order room service on some days. Since we had to leave the place early morning at around 6am, they volunteered to pack some breakfast for us. Very good customer service. Overall, a very relaxing and wonderful stay.

This place was selected to be away from the crazy Goa crowd specially in covid times. 3hrs drive from goa airport. Senic drive. Arrived the resort and woww. Huge rooms, amazing sit out, loved the open air bathrooms.

We tried eating the shacks at namaste cafe and kudle beach but the were way below average if u compare them to Goa shacks. So 2nd day we decided to try lunch at Swaswara. What food. I have no words. Rest 3 days we ate at Swaswara.

The pool is amazing and walking around the resort is so peaceful. Morning u wake up with Birds Chirping.

A special thanks to Shalini on the front desk who would never stop smiling and Suhana in the restaurant who would fill ur heart and stomach with her great suggestion of food items

It is a splendid blend with nature. The cottages are very comfortable and well maintained. The beach is a few mins with a private access to Om beach.

The food is too simple as it was primarily initiated as a naturopathy centre. They have recently initiated accepting holiday makers.

The staff is very hospitable and warm.

I had an exceptionally amazing experience at SwaSwara. I had stayed for 3 nights at the property with my mother. Everything, from the staff to the ambience was impeccable. The chef and staff of the restaurant took utmost care to provide us with the kind of food we wanted. The konkan villa was so beautifully crafted and we loved the idea of it. The property has some amazing views of the beach too, and we were able to access Om beach easily via the property. Overall, we loved our stay here, it's a must go for people seeking a detoxifying, relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

We are staying here for 3 nights. Our first impression of the resort was pleasing. The villas are beautiful and aesthetically designed in resonance with the nature.

But there are improvements needed to make it a wholesome resort for families to stay.I was told that the property was completely a wellness resort not open to kids in the pre pandemic times. Post COVID, they are open to regular tourists. But they haven’t stepped up the facilities.
The biggest miss here is the lack of television and WiFi in the villas. This may sound ok to tourists travelling without kids. Also the entire property is ill lit and walking around in the dark is pretty challenging for aged people and kids alike. There is no room service, this might be a dampener if you like to enjoy your evening with garam chai/coffee in solitude 😄.
