“SwaSwara” in the Kannada language means “my own rhythm”. Located on a beach, it’s perfect for a holiday or a “pilgrimage to the Self”. Neighbored by Kudle beach and Town beach on one side and Half-moon beach and Paradise on the other, this splendid property is on 26.5 acres of land with luxuriant flora and fauna. Highlights include yoga and ayurvedic treatments designed to refresh your body, soothe away frazzled city nerves and improve blood circulation. Accommodation at SwaSwara consists of 24 self-contained Villas, built in the local Konkan style, featuring air-conditioning and modern plumbing. Cuisine is mainly based on fresh fish and shellfish on seasonal variants, accompanied with fresh produce from the local farms and a selection of Indian wines.

Retreat Projects

Water

There are two big reservoirs that hold 15 million litres of water, collected during the monsoon season: this is the only source of water for SwaSwara. The property is located near a slope, which channels the slow flow of water via big filters into one of the two lakes. There are three species of Carp fish which feed on algae and mosquito larvae and keeps the lake water clean.

Biogas plant

Bio degradable waste from the kitchen is fed into the biogas plant, which converts it into methane gas and produces slurry. Methane gas is used as cooking gas, and slurry is a rich organic fertilizer used for gardening. Biogas is made from anaerobic digestion of waste (occurs naturally, without manual intervention) and is typically 55 to 75% pure methane, which if released in the atmosphere causes the depletion of the ozone layer.

Organic

Biomass digesters collect and convert dry leaves as well as damaged coconut thatch into effective compost which is used for farming. In addition, consumption of organic waste by earthworms is an ecologically safe method of naturally converting waste into beneficial products: obtained compost improves soil water retention, aeration, and adds lost nutrients. At last, we use an incinerator for burning all paper and cloth waste.
