Editor's Review

The Poovar Island Resort is a large and beautiful property with lush greenery and it offers nice views of the beach and the backwaters. It has luxurious land cottages and unique floating cottages. There's a lovely pool and cottages are built around it. The restaurant has a good location but there's nothing very special about the food. Floating cottages are a little overpriced.

  • Access to the sandy beach and the backwaters.
