Poovar Island Resort

India, Indian Subcontinent

You'll arrive at the Poovar Island resort by boat. It's a perfect introduction. The gentle lapping of the water and the chirrup of wildlife are the dominant sounds here. Peace and tranquillity reign.

As the tree-lined waters give way to the first sight of the hotel, you'll realise just what a wonderful choice you've made. You'll be warmly welcomed and quickly made to feel at home here.

A four star island paradise that comes with lots of top-notch amenities:

For a great way to get your holiday off to a relaxing start, discover the hotel's wellness centre – complete with Ayurveda – the traditional Indian method of helping you achieve harmony through diet, massage and herbal remedies. In fact, Ayurveda meals are served in one of the two hotel restaurants.

The all-inclusive package will cover all your meals, as well as unlimited soft drinks, local beers, tea, coffee and snacks. In keeping with the laidback lifestyle at the Poovar Island Resort, you'll be well fed and watered – all you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself.

Another great thing about staying at the Poovar Island Resort – you'll enjoy all the wonderful benefits of the island lifestyle, but still get to roam about when you take advantage of the hotel excursion programme. It gives you a great opportunity to see some more of the spectacular Kerelan scenery, whether at nearby Kovalam beach or further afield.

And whenever you leave on an outing, you'll always have the pleasure of coming back: the prospect of a little siesta in your comfortable room, a refreshing dip in the pool, or another good night's sleep in the clean, crisp air.

Land cottages feature twin or double beds and are fully air conditioned. They all include satellite TV, telephone, minibar, fan and tea / coffee making facilities. You may also be tempted by the prospect of a Premium room, or even a floating cottage. Just get in touch for more details.

Poovar Island Resort is an idyllic retreat, with its perfect island setting, wide range of amenities and devotion to ensuring guests enjoy Kerala to the full.

Unwind in the islands of Poovar

Review by Nivi_elam Chennai (Madras), India

Came across this lovely resort on the internet, while we searching for an exotic place to stay in Poovar. One can reach the resort with their boat services. The Poovar island resort is a wow place with a largely spread out garden...

The facilities they offer are swimming pool , Buffer / alacarte kind of lunch/dinner , Activity Center, Spa. You are welcomed with a welcome drink and nice wet towels to refresh. The rooms, washrooms and swimming pool were well maintained and tidy. Each room has a balcony and is garden facing. They provide a boat ride to the sunset view in the beach, that is located within a km. The sunset view is just amazing. Do not miss this activity, as the view is beautiful, they dont charge you for this and one can take any number of trips to the beach. The next activity would be the boating to the backwaters on chargeable basis.

Points to Note:

  1. If you are choosing to stay for 2 days or so in the resort, it is advisable to spend the 2 days inside the resort and relax, because if you are planning to visit places in and around Poovar, you will need to travel from the resort to the main road by a 20 minute boat ride. Plan your trip accordingly. Dont plan a tight itinerary.

  2. Carry loads of snacks / packet food, because their mini fridge items are chargeable and dont have much variety. The only other option is their restaurant / coffee shop

  3. Carry swimming costumes without which you are not allowed to enter the pool.

  4. Expect delayed service with respect to house keeping and food on room service

Poovar Island Resort will be your ideal vacation spot if you want to give time a break and escape the monotony :)

Happy Vacationing !! :)

A serene and beautiful Island........True to its name!!!!

Review by RKumar99 Mumbai, India

We travelled as a Couple in Feb20. We stayed for 01 nite and had booked the floating cottage. The property is beautiful, quite and huge with quite a few activities...

Staff are courteous. The view from the cottage is amazing. Would like to make a mention of a few People who made our stay special. Mr.Babu recieved us upon arrival and also helped us at departure......very polite efficient and warm. Mr.Sajayan at the restaurant was extremely kind and took care of our special requests. I had wished to have banana fritters for high tea. It was not on the menu that day. However he ensured that it was specially made for me......this kind of service needs a special mention. Mr,Santosh at the restaurant also was very kind. A very special mention of the Chief Chef Mr.Ravi Kumar. I had casually made a request for banana flower cutlets. All these are kerala cuisine specialities and so i wished to try them. He asked us what time will you come for dinner. to my pleasant and utter surprise when we reached the dining hall at 8.30pm we were served with hot banana flower cutlets.......unmatchable taste.......something you wish you could keep on eating. It is this kind of service that stands apart and makes a property worthy of a memorable stay. Thank You Team.
