Along with Maxine E we also travelled to Poovar Island Resort for a second time and were not disappointed. We would reiterate what they say but add that the boat journey to get to and from the island and the island itself is a joy. The birds and scenery are just amazing and the setting itself is just so relaxing... More

There is a vantage point upfront with recliners from where all of them form part of one panoramic view. The island is sandy for the most part (land reclaimed and silted) and looks... More
