Poovar Island resort is a large resort located in Poovar island. They provide a motorboat service from their boat jetty to the resort. It's a 10 minutes ride along the backwater. The backwater is bordered by a narrow stretch of sand beach separating it from Arabian sea Resort is the largest amongst the resorts in Poovar. It has a very well maintained property with lot of activities arranged from indoor, outdoor sports, boating across the backwater (chargeable), trip to sea beach, ayurvedic massage (chargeable). Lot of open spaces with beautiful garden and kids area makes it appealing for all They have 2 types of rooms - floating cottages facing the backwater front which is bordered by short beach to Arabian Sea and garden facing rooms I stayed for a day in floating cottage - a single room on a floating block of wood. It is connected to land by short wooden stable pile Room decor is excellent with nice wooden furnitures, modern toilet and even having a refrigerator inside too. It had a nice balcony opening right into the backwater. They provide stocks of snacks and juices on chargeable basis in room The room is quite stable with no unsettled feel even being on the water. We had some issues with toilet facilities that needed repair and was taken care after some follow up Restaurant is of decent size and has a typical antique feel in decor with modern lighting. Breakfast buffet has a good mix of Indian and continental food. Idiyappam and dosa was really a standout Menu options in restaurant are more than in room with mix of local, North Indian and continental cuisines and there is a 15% additional charge for room service We had Indian chicken dishes in dinner and found it to be quite well. Price is on the higher side as you can expect from a premium resort. They have a nice snacks and beverages area on the edge of backwater for a leisured view of sunset.
Now I can Start this Review by Saying This Place is Out of This World. It was last leg of our 8 days holiday and best way to end out memorable trip. As Name Suggests, Its an Island Resort and takes 20 minutes Jetty Ride to reach the Resort( This 20mins ride is full of amazing views and enjoyment). On Reaching Island, pathway to Resort is Best I have ever seen with Floating Huts on both ways with Huge Shankh and Chakkis on the way with Green Garden, beautifully Illuminated. Staff at Reception and Room Service were very Polite, Sweet and Friendly but we faced bit of Language Issue here. Rooms at Poovar Island Resort are well maintained and illuminated and comfortable too with Remote controlled Electric Connection(Fan, Lights, AC etc) with a swing in front of every room to chill and Relax. Food here is quite good but I must say Kitchen Staff is very slow and not cooperative. And food served in Room is very slow(we ordered a Nan and were told it will take 30 minutes to send it to Room). Some Pros and Cons of this place. Pros. They offer a special session of Yoga and Meditation in separate area Every Morning. Spa here is very good. Best Swimming Pool I have seen in Kerala with music playing and Small Bar. They Offer complimentary Boat Ride to Beach to enjoy at sea. Soaps in Bathroom are scented - Fragrance is just amazing, I haven't seen soap like that in my lyf. They offer Buffet Dinner at 700 pp, it is huge and full of varieties. In spite of being an Island, they have Doctor On Call Facility. Lot of Extra Activities for Kids like Swimming Pool, badminton and other sports. Cons. Language issue for People from Outside. No Toothbrush in ROoms ( though were provided on calling Reception)
