Estuary Sarovar Portico Island

India, Indian Subcontinent
Poovar

There is no boring taxi ride to the Estuary Sarovar Portico Island – you go by boat. From the small fishing village of Poovar, near Kovalam, you'll be ferried along a gently winding river, through the coconut groves to your exclusive island paradise – the Estuary Sarovar Portico Island!

The hotel occupies an idyllic location overlooking an azure blue lagoon and a long stretch of sandy beach. The Arabian Sea laps at the shore – it's the perfect backdrop – a glittering ribbon of blue in this oasis of calm and tranquillity.

The exquisite Estuary Sarovar Portico Island: the perfect holiday hideaway

Helping you to relax even more, rooms at the Estuary Sarovar Portico Island put comfort first. The garden view rooms are all light and airy and come fully equipped with cable TV, telephone, minibar and en suite bathroom. You may even upgrade to an estuary view room. Just ask for details.

The ambience throughout is laidback and convivial. Staff are fully attentive to your needs. And just wait till you see the spectacular floating restaurant. In fact, the Estuary Sarovar Portico Island is full of places where you'll want to stop and marvel at your surroundings. Take a wander in the beautiful garden and you'll discover the swimming pool, bordered with palm trees and looking out over the lagoon. And beyond that – a quick boat ride away is the main beach.

And if all of that isn't relaxing enough, why not enjoy a few sessions at the hotel's Ayurvedic centre for a traditional health and wellbeing treatment.

This must be one of the jewels in Kerala's crown. The stunningly located and wonderfully relaxing Estuary Sarovar Portico Island is a perfect island paradise.

Scenic beauty

Review by Aravindexplorer89 Chennai District, India

We stayed in this resort for our wedding anniversary, this place is very tranquil. We reached there by car, once we entered the resort we thought it as a very basic one but soon after the check in the lady at the reception took us through the resort in a club car and we were flattered with the view of the backwater and the beach from the pathway itself. Our room was newly renovated and has a direct view of the backwater, beach, coconut grooves and the swimming pool.

Restaurant was on the backwater itself overlooking the beach, Breakfast spread was very nice...

For lunch they offered us a Thali which includes most of the traditional kerala dishes. Staff were very courteous. We enjoyed the mangrove boating and the sunset view from the resort while having tea. We wish to visit this place again.

Christmas vacation

Review by Roby V National Capital Territory of Delhi, India

Booked sarover portico poovar a month before with 50% payment. When we were 10 kms from the resort, got a call from the manager expressing their inability to provide us the 2 rooms we booked due to faulty A/c. He was trying to transfer us to some kovalam hotel.we did not fell in his trap and we reached the resort since travelling back after driving for 175 kms with kids so tired was not an option...

After some arguments and the usual "sincere apologies" we were given 2 rooms in a block which was under renovation and after half an hour the electrician joined the cables and the A/c started working. In peak time, the hotels do overbooking and will try to cheat the unsuspecting guests with some frivolous reasons. Although we had planned a two day stay,we checked out after breakfast without exploring poovar and went to Trivandrum and checked into O by Tamara which had courteous staff,nice ambience and great food. Guys pls avoid Sarovar Poovar or be careful with them

Great hospitality and facilities

Review by Possumz

For our team outing, we had booked Estuary Island, Poovar, for 2 days. The property had great facilities for outdoor games like volleyball, badminton & cricket and a well maintained swimming pool. The rooms were also best in class...

The property is spread over a large area and the back side has a beach view with hammocks. The entire team thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality and facilities. We had a great experience and enjoyed the outing.

I strongly recommend this resort for leisurely holidays - suited for both corporate team outbounds and family vacations. Keep up the hospitality and good work!
