The location is very lovely, people friendly, room was clean...however, when I went to check out, they wanted me to pay...AGAIN. I had a confirmed booking reservation, complete with payment showing as "Paid in Full". They informed me the site I used was not yet 'active', therefore they had not received my payment. BUT they DID receive my booking. So...

poovar island website quotes "You will only feel peace and tranquility" and this would be absolutely true had it not been for an annual conference of Volvo Construction being held there for the 2 days that we stayed there... during the day there were noisy team building activities going on and in the evening there was loud music and partying!...

Mother of all relaxing locations. Management and staff was phenomenal, especially Dinesh, Rex, Babu, Stephen. Food was good, could be more Kerala style, boat service was very good. Beautiful views of sunrise and sunset, small annoyances from the other tourist boats passing right outside our floating cottage, about 75 feet away. Hope they continue maintaining the cottages.

The property of the resort is vast and we acknowledge the hospitality of the staff right from the bottom to top. We can never forget the beach between the lake...

And one would require a boat ride (15-20 minutes) to reach the island from land. Rooms were OK, food even better !! however my personal opinion, its a...

Poovar hotel excellent place for relaxation. Also good wildlife The food was good (go to kerrela eat like kerrela people). The room was very basic, could have done with a lick of paint, they looked tired. The house maids very good they kept the rooms clean. The plug sockets take normal British plugs but also take the 2 pronged adapter....
