I stayed in this resort for one day with my family. This is a nice resort, calm and quiet, situated in an Island. There is an excellent - well maintained pool. The rooms are individual cottages, which safeguards your privacy. The room rent and food are a bit over priced. The hotel staff are very pleasant and helpful. In a nutshell, this is a resort which is calm and quiet and neat but a bit overpriced Amenities ::. Talking about the amenities, most of them are facing the pool and some are river facing. Rooms are well maintained and bathrooms are clean. They offer a TV with cable connection. Outside the rooms, there is only one amenity, the swimming pool - The pool is clean and big. There is a small pool for children also. We enjoyed most of our time in the pool. There is no other activities around Transportation::. As this resort is situated in an Island, there is no means of road transport. We have to park our vehicles in a parking ground. From there, hotel will arrange a pick up boat to the resort, which is a unique experience. But if you are planning for frequent visits to the nearby destinations, every time we should ask the hotel people to arrange a pickup and drop to the parking ground Food::. Pick up. The resort person will provide you food. Menu card is available in your room. South and North Indian dishes are available. Food is tasty but overpriced. A veg biriyani will cost you 250 Rs. As this is situated in an island, there is no option to take food from outside. So if you want food in cheaper price, please have your food before you arrive the hotel or carry your food Destinations nearby::. From the resort you can hire a boat to Poovar beach which is a good one. They will drive you through the Poovar lake and mangroves which will be a good experience. You can watch birds and take photographs throughout this ride. The ride will cost 1000 Rs for an hour. Also, Kovalam beach and Vizhinjam port is near by Pros and Cons---. Pros::. Unique experience of an Island resort Good Swimming pool nice and clean Rooms Cons::. Price of Rooms are comparatively high Food is costly Road transportation is not available. (This can be termed as a feature of Island resort) Not much things for entertainment (Other than pool) Conclusion:. This is a nice resort with a well maintained pool. The rooms which are cottages are good, but slightly overpriced. The hotel staff are good. This will be nice for couples, who are seeking for a quiet and beautiful location My Rating of this resort is 3. 5 out of 5.
Beautiful resort in the lap of pristine backwaters and at a stone's throw from Poovar beach. Entry and exit to the hotel is through a boat ride in the lovely backwaters. Rooms are ethnic and tastefully decorated. However there is no AC which is a must during daytime. Short on staff and not much variety in lunch or dinner. Breakfast needs a makeover since there is hardly any variety.
Visited this place with some of my friends during trip to Poovar. I have had the opportunity to visit many of the resorts in Poovar since I have been staying in Kerala for long. The hotel was located among the backwaters and was reachable via their own boat service and the guy took us via the backwaters which in itself was a great experience. Everything in the resort was Rajasthani style, from bed-sheets to even the stuff in washroom which in fact felt really good The rooms were very spacious, neat, clean and made in hut style around the swimming pool. They also had few rooms by the riverside but I like the ones by the pool better The staff were courteous and the service was great. Food was also good and I had a good time chatting with the owner of the resort The view during sunset is amazing. Overall, a real nice experience.
Booked this resort via Goibibo after looking at the pictures. Must say that it was exactly as was projected. Although little difficult to locate but was guided by the owner of the resort as he personally takes care after the resort. We were taken to the resort from a particular location using a boat and in that starting itself we had the opportunity to experience the backwaters. After reaching the resort we were welcomed by the owner himself whose name is "Srijesh", a real nice guy . . The front office had lot of interiors from Rajasthan and upon entering the room which was just near the pool I got to know that everything inside the room also is from Rajasthan, got a feeling that I am somewhere in Rajasthan. Rooms were neat and clean, proper lighting, hygienic washrooms and had all the required essentials. Room service was awesome, food was also great compared to other resorts I have been to in Poovar. We were also given the option to customize the menu and order from outside it. The cook will prepare the way you like it. The staff was courteous to help you in anyway possible The beach was very nearby and we were taken there by the same boat and another experience of backwaters and the sea ride. It was just awesome especially during sunset. Must visit place and must visit resort.
