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.
