The Poovar Island Resort is 32km from the airport at Trivandrum and just two kilometers from the Poovar bus station.

Poovar Island Resort
Our stay at Poovar Island Resort was only for a day,which we regret as we wanted to stay more.Book atleast for 3 days.It is a lovely place with Floating cottages,Ayurvedic village and extremely peaceful. The beauty of the resort is that it is in the Backwaters just 500 mtrs away from the beach and sea.Food was very tasty with authentic kerala taste. Staff is very helpful and polite.We had a lovely time.Hope to visit again soon.
The floating rooms are worth the experience”
Affordable and offers a high quality experience. The facilities are decent especially for kids. The food is top notch with a good vegetarian range and is value for money. Ethical consciousness is to be appreciated.
Nice place to stay with family. Service is very good.
Floating cottage at resort”
The Floatation of the Floating cottage was unique, and the view from the Rooms . Boating to the resort itself makes you think of a different feel . Overall the resort has lush greenery and facilities. Complimentary Breakfast was scrumptious but the Dinner was over priced , with minimal seafood. Being a Lakefront resort it is expected better dishes .
Excellent Resort . Worth the money . Excellent food and facilities. I liked the Gym and toiletries .
We enjoyed our very relaxed stay at the Resort. The location is very good, the property well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast (which comes along with the daily rent) was sumptuous and extensive in variety and was definitely the best meal of the day. The a la carte menu for other meals was rather slow to arrive. Traditional items like rasam, aviyal need a great deal of improvement. Overall a thumbs up!.
Serene setting, great display of hospitality ”
We were in Poovar with family and kid, this resort is kid friendly , good options for kids to spend their time... clean rooms , clean pool... quality food... warm people. Great display of hospitality.... overall one of the good island resorts for vacation. Away from hustle bustle of city life and traffic....
Good and isolated place to wnwind”
good place to spend a weekend. Enough facilities are there. Food options can be improved.
Excellent...Go for it”
neat and clean, huge area for an evening walk, friendly staff, reasonable price through agoda, great break fast...what else we want. Outstanding place...one of the best resort in South kerala.... Special mention to the staff who is doing boat service. while entering to the boat my specs fell in to the water, thought its gone. But this guy changed his dress and immediately jumped to the water and after a few minutes of searching he came up with my specs. really great......Thanks
Everything is great about this property. We were in the floating cottages and truly loved the experience. The staff is ever smiling and courteous. Food is good. Rooms are clean . It has a very relaxing ambiance. Over all a must visit place. We would love to stay longer the next time we are in Poovar.
I travelled with my family and had an amazing experience at this property. The location in awesome. The property is absolutely worth a visit if you are visiting Kerala and want to do back water trip.
Vacation on a Waterfront”
Poovar Island Resort is an excellent place to spend a family vacation on the waterfront. The property is located on Backwater and facing the sea and beach. On reaching the welcome area you are ushered to the property with your belongings by ferry on the back water amidst the mangrove forest. The resort is well maintained and the rooms are well furnished. The resort has a lot of Outdoor and Indoor facilities which are complimentary. Some of the facilities are chargeable like Spa, Cruise on the backwaters etc. The restaurant facility is good and the rates are reasonable with quality food. The resort is a world unto itself and planning to go out for a trip to Kovalam beach/Kanyakumari one has to take a ferry ride to the welcome area and then proceed.
Lovely location and nicely built property..Had booked Floating cottage(wasn't floating much though). Service needs to improve overall especially the guys at the reception..Didnt accommodate our request for late check out by even an hr..
amazing place and location ”
Its nice experience to be here, given a chance will visit again
Pure vegetarian bit of a problem.Other things fine
Great place for family holiday. Exquisite food. Staying at floating cottage is an unique experience. Fabulous spa. Spend at least 3 nights to soak the ambience.
Pros- Location was perfect. Staff was friendly. Cons- Room was not value for money. Pricing is very high as compared to the aesthetics of room!
Paid for floating cottage which lacks basic facility and size. I didnot find value for money”
