Our Reviews

  • Rebecca's Review of SwaSwara, India

    SwaSwara was a perfect destination to enjoy some me time, to recharge and enjoy being pampered with Ayurvedic treatments and spoilt with fantastic healthy food. I met some wonderful like-minded fellow guests at SwaSwara so I would definitely recommend it for solo travellers as well as for small groups of friends, adult family members or couples. Advanced yogis and beginners alike would benefit…

    What an exceptional hotel! The best service I've ever experienced! The Spa is wonderful, as well as the yoga classes. I felt that my body, mind and soul were well looked after and I came home feeling like a new person. The food was excellent. I went by myself and was made to feel very welcome by both the hotel and other guests. My solitude, when wanted, was respected. I felt utterly refreshed when I got back to the UK and have recommended Swaswara and Health and Fitness Travel to many people already. My tip: To embrace every aspect of the hotel.

    I had the most wonderful holiday at SwaSwara. Health and Fitness Travel was great at answering all my questions before booking, which made things much less stressful and enabled me to relax completely! I look forward to return to this amazing place in India!

    waSwara 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 bit bare.

    Visited March 2015

    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. The peaceful atmosphere, wonderful staff, amazing yogi program, meditations classes, Ayurveda massages, and last but not least the food were a delight. In between the activities above I spent my time swimming in the Arabian Sea on the famous OM Beach. I had my own room which gave me lots of time for reflection and rest. I was only there seven days but wished it was longer. The private villa type accommodation were beautiful and perfect for me. 

    SwaSwara does offer many Ayurveda well-being programs most of which require a two to four week stay. This is a quite place and those visiting are looking for a peaceful rejuvenation. I know I should return for a longer stay!
