The pristine splendour of both Kerala’s backwaters and the Arabian Sea are best enjoyed at the delightful Poovar island Resort— for long a thumping success with travellers from home and abroad. The long golden beach by the resort is a compelling reason too to extend a sojourn amidst its 25 acres of the lush verdure of its coconut groves. The elegant superior rooms, wrapped around the swimming pool set upon a natural lily pond, offer fuel for many joyful holiday memories. But what are even more exciting are the truly unique sea-facing floating villas and cottages with the large bay windows, set upon the backwaters.
Guests have a choice of land cottages, floating cottages and deluxe floating cottages with a separate living area. The resort also offers excellent conferencing facilities for corporate customers. Tiffins, the multi-cuisine restaurant serves both traditional and international cuisine. There is also a floating restaurant with a magnificent backwater view. The ‘Ayurveda Village’ at Poovar Island Resort is one of the few places where the 6000 year old ancient healthcare system is still practiced at its purest form. A team of experienced doctors and masseurs practice this traditional art form in the ideal environment in order to maximize the healing potential.
The Ayurvedic village has spacious cottages, a specialized restaurant & a free flowing swimming pool to add to the guest experience. The resort also arranges traditional / contemporary cooking classes treks, visits to the local fishing village, crab hunting on the backwaters, yoga, canoe rowing, bird watching and cultural musical nights.
