It's Ayurveda's moment—so head to the source. At SwaSwara (Gokarna; 91-484/266-8221; www.swaswara.com; doubles from $300, including breakfast), a new 27-acre, 24-villa yoga retreat in India's holistic heartland, Karnataka, ayurvedic therapists custom-create total-health stays. Tailor your meals to match your strict regimen. Or not: dinners of fresh fish and organic produce and glasses of tangy kokum juice may make you think twice. All villas have air-conditioning, thatched roofs, and a private path to the beach. Refreshed souls can practice tratak (object-focused) meditation or venture into Gokarna, a town of ancient Hindu temples a short boat ride away.
