Our stay at Poovar Island Resort for a single day was quite refreshing and memorable. The resort provided a unique ambience with the picturesque background of backwaters and the sea. The property of the resort is vast and we acknowledge the hospitality of the staff right from the bottom to top. We can never forget the beach between the lake...

Went there on a 3 day trip with family. Location is nice and peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of city. The island is location appx. 33 kms from trivendrum airport. And one would require a boat ride (15-20 minutes) to reach the island from land. Rooms were OK, food even better !! however my personal opinion, its a...

Poovar hotel excellent place for relaxation. Also good wildlife The food was good (go to kerrela eat like kerrela people). The room was very basic, could have done with a lick of paint, they looked tired. The house maids very good they kept the rooms clean. The plug sockets take normal British plugs but also take the 2 pronged adapter....

We stayed here for 2 days in the month of January. One of the best things about this hotel is its "Location". The location of the hotel is serene, calm and quiet. The staff was very courteous, nice food. If anyone visiting Kovalam or Povar, you must consider this resort.

We stayed for two weeks at the Ayurveda Resort for Ayurveda treatment. The reason why I give only one star is due to the fact that the management of this resort put (not only once, no) three times families with children into the Ayurveda Resort. It was very noisy even during night until early morning. This is unacceptable since the...

The floating cottages are more comfortable than a houseboat and yet with the gentle sway and awesome views of the backwater, a beach as well as the ocean. Our cottage was upgraded to a deluxe cottage with a sitting room, which made it even better. One feels captivated by the little boats, the birds and the swirling water all around....

Hotel staff are courteous and helpful. Resort is big spread in 22 Acres and must visit place if you visit trivandrum. Better to opt for poovar instead of kovalam if you...
