Swa Swara is located on top of a cliff close to the beach, geologically the place is of dark laterite rocks. Twenty four laterite stoned cottages with clay roof tiles, the cottages at Swa Swara are spacious and has open bathrooms. There is a blue dome for yoga sessions, which looks very much charismatic among the laterite cottages. A restaurant which serves Indian wines and diet controlled food. Only vegetarian food is served except for fish. The kitchen is wide and semi circular where guests take participate in cooking sessions. The swimming pool is large is a close to the blue dome and Chakra is the in house ayurveda center.

Swa swara is for someone who would like to stay long under ayurveda consultation, where dedicated ayurveda doctors at “Chakra” – the Ayurveda center, assist you with treatments like the panchakarma and many more depending on the requirement. The resort does not entertain short stays just because of the fact that, more than entertainment they contribute to lifestyle transformations.
