Swaswara Spa Holiday POA (when we went it was around £2K for a week plus airfares to Mumbai, we did say splash out)
Swaswara is our editor Anna Magee’s favourite spa ever (and she has been to a few). It’s an eco-resort with full Ayurvedic facilities, meditation and yoga on hand, located at the mouth of Om Beach, near the sacred town of Gokarna in the state of Karnataka, just north of Kerala (what we mean here is this place is remote). You do yoga practice daily in a hut set on high stilts in the middle of light jungle where monkeys jump from treat to tree. The food – oh the food – is healthy Keralan vegetarian and you can take cooking lessons with the chef. You’ll stay in luxe huts that tick all the eco boxes and feature organic handmade soaps and aromas of fresh teas and juices which are always on hand filling the air. Plus, daily meditation and holistic Ayurvedic treatments are run by old school local professionals so the place has an authentic atmosphere that will lure the most hard-boiled to relax. The. Best. Present. Ever.
