              What a place!!! The resort is the only place located on an island and hence needs to be approached through a boat that is provided by the resort. Secondly, the property is huge and has amazing rooms, both, garden facing and floating cottages. We had 2 floating cottages which had nice facilities and had a great view of the river and sunset. The balcony on the river water is an amazing place to be in the evenings. the hotel staff is polite, friendly and courteous. They often go out of the way to assist travelers. The food quality is great with amazing spread and one can be spoilt for choices that the restaurant offers. The hotel had arranged for some complimentary shows that we enjoyed during our only night of stay. The food is priced well and the taste is superb. The hotel also has a beautiful swimming pool and a gift shop that is not selling overpriced items. The resort provides complimentary rides to the Golden Beach that is situated opposite to the the resort. Also they have paid tri

              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.

              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.

              A beautiful scenic place”

              Nice place for relaxation with family and friends. Kids love the long lawn, Couples can enjoy Ayurveda massage, friends can hangout in sunset bar which is situated on the banks of the resort. Morning sea breeze is the highlight and the floating rooms will give u an absolute thriller in the night with water sound hitting your floating room everytime and in the morning, having a coffee with your dear one seeing the ocean view is something you could expereince well there. Overall, we know kerala is about health and relaxation. You can enjoy the same there

              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 .

              Feedback”

              The resort is located in a scenic place. The resort is big, located with many rooms. Cleanliness was poor (restrooms, room floor were dirty) staffs were very polite and courteous. AC was not working in my room in midnight i had to change room which was quite inconvenient. The activity room was good but they told there was fooseball but at the center they said table is broken and so no fooseball. Food taste is average (not upto the mark for the price - can be a lot better in taste) . a nice scenic place with excellent staffs - lacking cleanliness in rooms, restrooms and food taste

              An excellent facility filled with natural beauty. May be due to Covid hard times , some facilities like intercom is not working, in standard rooms, A/c was bit faulty .Food is also not up to the mark may be due to Covid times and a bit overpriced. Otherwise an excellent facility and very humble staff. A must go place with family
