Nice hotel on the back water Island


The good thing about the hotel is it is near to the sea and the lake. You have to travel in boat for about 15 minutes to get in to the hotel which is very interesting. We had checked in after the onam holiday, so we had reached the hotel at 9 pm. The journey at night was fearsome in a speedy boat with life Jack all along. My daughter enjoyed the journey very much although little adventurous, floating resorts are good although we had taken normal cottage. You are welcomed nicely on arrival and over all journey to cherish.

Overall a good experiences


Stay in Poovar Island resort was superb with a lake surrounding the resort. Travel to the resort was only through boat which itself is a great experience. We stayed in floating cottage in the backwater shores which will be a unique experience. Except for the reception everything is good here. They will arrange trip in the backwaters in which we can see the surroundings of the hotel and rare kinds of birds which will be a great experience.

Excellent rooms, service and food


Beautiful place to spend your holiday. Excellent rooms, service and food. You have a pool in the resort and can also have beverages in the pool. The resort is situated near the sea and you need to park your vehicle near the reception and you will be taken to the resort in their own private boat. It was really a awesome experience spending time in Poovar resort

The food was tasty along with the package


I booked this hotel by online. Hotel provided pick up and drop facility. I had no problem in check in check out. I ate food in the hotel and it was good in quality and in taste. Many verities foods were available. The room provided to me was floating on water, as it was located on top of water. All required facilities with food were provided for a package. Staff members in the hotel were good in service and behaviour. I did not participate in any activities in hotel.

Complimentary food provided


The front desk staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly and the room service was prompt too, they were very caring with good hygienic. I went here with family for relaxation. It is located outskirts of the city; it is at about 40 km distance from the Thiruvananthapuram. They provided vehicle to pick up and drop. Hotel appearance was excellent and the interior was very well decorated. The room was so spacious with well decorated, neat and well maintained with basic amenities like AC, TV, mini fridge, room heater and geyser facility and 3 members can stay in a room. They provided complimentary food, the quality and taste of the food was very delicious and filling. There were more activities like boating etc.
