We booked three rooms at this resort for a family of 8 adults and three kids. It was a hot day at Trivandrum and we were taken to the resort by a ferry across a beautiful backwater lake. You will fall in love with Kerala when you see the lake. The service was exceptionally good, they welcomed us very well...

Facing directly the backwaters and Golden beach.. this resort offers a beautiful view. Complementary ferry shuttles taking to and from the Golden beach everyday for guests. Good property, restaurant is very good.. Swimming pool is good. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone visiting Poovar.

There was just one water bottle in the room, no hand towels,...
