Poovar Island Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Superb location and surrounding. Well kept property and lots to do in and around for the entire family. The only thing they need to improve is food. Think more than the spread , the taste , freshness and service has scope for improvement. This is nothing to do with the attitude of staff but probably adequacy and experience of the staff employed in F&B. If the management can get just this bit addressed, I have no hesitation in saying that it could well become the best property in Poovar.

Beautifully located hotel. Needs a bit of maintance.New better quality mattresses.The dining services were very good. Staff was very polite an courteous. Bipin John, Anish Kumar and Akhil Ajay took great care in the restaurant. Spa was good and value for money but the towels were stinking. All in all a very good place but need small bits of revamping.

Poovar Island Resort is awesome. It's hardly 30 km from Trivandrum International Airport. But as it's totally surrounded by water, you will be completely away from the hardships of city life. The cottages built in the beautifully maintained landscape and the coconut lagoon is a perfect place to relax and enjoy. The 16 honeymoon cottages floating on the lake facing the sea is a great experience. It's a good destination for family and friends also. Food and the service need improvement.

Nice place to stay! Service is good! Food is delicious! We have a walk around the campus.we had a nice feeling of good breeze.we learnt many yoga excersises from the master,they are very helpful for us! Kids can nice enjoyment in the kids park! We can have a excellent swimming experience in the clean swimming pool! Everything is ok ,but maintenence might be little bit concentrated!

Fantastic food if you are vegetarian or vegan. If you like meat don't go. If you are on all inclusive package be aware the only alcohol included in this is Kingfisher Beer. Wine will cost. No spirits available. Land Cottages OK need refurb and towels and bed linen old and discoloured. Grounds beautiful. There is no system of service when it comes to asking for a drink you'll be lucky if you are understood and even more lucky to get a drink! The pool is lovely. If you want to go somewhere to do nothing and relax in the hot sun a great place to go.

Hotel is beautiful,cool atmosphere and very attractive. Service is awesome,food is also good.we come here for honeymoon and its really a nice place to spend some for my love.we saw poovar beach,its so nice and romantic
