Far from the hustel and bustle of the city one place where the roar of the waves would help you keep calm and enjoy the peace!

Awesome and luxury may not be the right word to define this wonderful place called "Poovar Island Resort" . This is an island as such which can be reached only thru a boat/ferry . It's about 30 odd Kms from Trivandrum by road to reach the boat ride point and from there the cottage / resort can be approached only thru boat which is about 3.5 Kms /20 Mns of safe ride on scenic backwaters . There are two stay options - land and floating cottages and we stayed in floating cottages which is on the backwaters tied up to the land . The cottage had a hall bedroom n attached restroom with Tv and phone connectivity . We also have a balcony stretching out above the backwaters on the rear side of cottage . It is only a stretch of sand that disconnects the ocean and the backwaters . the scenic stay is so safe n really nothing much to worry except on peak monsoon season wherein they might themselves will stop bookings for these cottages . Other than this unique cottage they have varieties of land cottages , Ayurvedic centre, gym, swimming pool, flavoured restaurant and play areas stretching the resort to larger area. No complaints on Food, cost, Customer service, neatness , location etc . The place is secured well especially we saw atleast 3-4 guards near the floating cottages thru out day n night . On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed our 10th wedding anniversary in the float :-) . Felt very special . Try it u may like it too . Don't miss to ride around the island in their boat specially on the mornings to view some birds and scenic backwaters.
Note : have read some negative reviews as well specially abt the small issues inside floating cottage but I would say those are very much discountable . Sept - oct should be an apt month to visit I guess . We had been there for last two days (August).

Visited poovar in August. The first thing we did is visit golden sand beach. As the name suggests, this beach has soft golden colour sand. This is one of the most beautiful and clean beaches I have ever seen. There were very few people on the beach and a nice stroll on the beach is an experience of lifetime. If you are visiting poovar, you must go and spend an evening on this beach.
