We booked it solely because it offered floating cottages, which in itself was a new experience. We stayed in deluxe cottage. The cottage is not as spacious as a hotel room with a living room. The cottage has a balcony where one can sit and watch the sunset or enjoy a morning tea. Outside the balcony is backwaters, then a...

When you get to any resort there are 3 important things to consider. 1. The place. 2. The food. 3. The service. While PIR (Poovar Island Resort ) scores high on the ambiance and the novelty of the place and same can't be said about the other 2. The place is well maintained in terms of the landscaping and to...

Great location and the perfect getaway place. The food was amazing and the we tried the Pomfret on the chef's recommendation and it was exquisite. The staff was hospitable and the resort itself is beautiful. Only you can';t go anywhere without a boat. We tried the ayurvedic massage centre as well and the therapist was good. However keep in mind...
