“This ‘not-quite-an-ashram’ retreat is the embodiment of calm, with rich yet simple furnishings and décor which peacefulness the moment you walk through the doors. As most guests are undertaking detox programmes, daily schedules are light with art and pottery classes as well as yoga and meditation. Guests are invited to visit the kitchen gallery to take part in the preparation of their healthy meals.”
Swaswara is a specialist holistic healing centre and wellbeing retreat perched on a lushly forested clifftop overlooking the Arabian Sea and Om Beach in remote Southern India.
Styled after local architecture, the spacious Konkan villas are decorated in deep, earthy colours and traditional fabrics. There is an abundance of shared spaces around the resort including the cliff-top mediation deck which boasts 180-degree views of the surroundings.
Specialising in detox, yoga and meditation, the property encourages wellbeing of the mind, body and soul through natural healing methods.
Meals are prepared using ingredients from Swaswara’s on site organic vegetable farm. The menu does not feature meat, alcohol, refined sugars or flour, but does include freshly and sustainably caught seafood.
