We ran a meditation retreat at Poovar for 2 weeks and in that time experienced wonderful support from Management and all the staff. It was a great place to be and enjoy. The boat ride to the resort creates a doorway to relax and enjoy the birdlife and ambience of the Kerala Backwaters. The location is great and the beach...

One of the best island resorts in this part of the country where a visitor could also enjoy boat rides. A good place to spend with family, best enjoyed during late winter and early spring.

It is unique in it being accessible only by boat from the main road. The motor boat ride into the resort is by itself an...

Very good place to spend your weekend with family and friends. Good ambience, best hospitality, clean beach and boat service are the specialities which we can't get any where else. Only thing they need to improve is the quality of food.

Many reviews here speak of the facilities which are wonderful but I would like to review the heart of the Poovar Island Resort. I visited the resort for fifteen days as part of a large group that were using it to facilitate a deep meditation retreat.
