SwaSwara is a luxury holiday space for those seeking wellness, healing, rejuvenation, and a path to self-discovery. You will stay in a traditional Konkan villa, modern yet austere, amid acres of greenery, with a yoga deck of your own and a stunning view of Gokarna’s pristine Om Beach and the Arabian Sea.

Your accommodation is in spacious Konkan villas that boast an open inner courtyard and partially open-to-sky bathrooms. To make the most of the beautiful natural surroundings, only the bedrooms are enclosed and air-conditioned. The rest of the villa opens out to nature.

Program

Firstly by ‘Snehanam’, where the body is related internally by ingesting medicated ghee for the number of nights prescribed by the Vaidya and externally by ‘Swedanam’ where the body is made to undergo therapeutic sweating. Depending on the medical condition and the doshas, the Vaidya will further determine the course of cleansing processes for each individual. SwaSwara’s Ayurveda Detox and Panchakarma program starts from 14 days onwards.

After a detailed consultation with a Ayurveda doctor and prior to starting the therapeutic external body treatments, this intense, holistic program begins with the Ayurvedic detox procedure of ingesting medicated ghee for a few nights (Snehapana), followed by a day of purging (Virechana) to cleanse and eliminate the accumulated toxins out of the body. During this program, each individual is put on a personalized, Dosha-specific diet which will be followed strictly as prescribed by the doctor.

On the Ayurveda doctor’s advice, up to two treatments will be offered on a daily basis, supplemented by light yoga and meditation sessions. During their stay, guests are encouraged to use the in-house art and pottery studio and take part in the interactive cooking sessions too to learn Ayurvedic cooking. Due to the intense and curative nature of this program, all physical and outdoor activities including yoga will be subject to the Ayurveda doctor’s advice and approval only.

The third and final stage of treatment is ‘Samana’ or ‘Paschatkarma’ where the patient undergoes corrective measures through internal medicines, therapeutic body treatments, supplemented by an appropriate Dosha-specific diet and gentle healing activities for the body and mind. On completion of this course of treatment, the imbalances of the Doshas, which lead to diseases in the body, get stabilized and are brought to equilibrium.
