After a long drive from Alleppey on NH 47 we were quite tired, but the site of being at Poovar was very refreshing. It is simply beautiful. The resort we were in dint have a road access, we had to get in boat from the highway and then curling thru the back waters we reached the estuary where our resort... More

What a spectacular place with amazing scene. Where water is there lies serenity. We friends visited twice this place. It would do better, if the sellers there take it a serious business. This has to be maintained well for years to come and for the millions of travellers like me. Sure suggest for people who wanted to go here.

The boating experience in Neyyar river in Poovar Island was exhilarating. The greenery in the banks, the tea in floating restaurant and the junction of Neyyar and Kothaiyar rivers merging with the sea was breathtaking. We went in a group and thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

We stayed here in the second week of May. Clean cottages with ample space. Food is good. I recommend this place for those who want to relax completely. Hot water in bathroom need to be taken care. The money spent was worth. Will love to stay there again.

I had experienced backwater boat cruise in the past. But for the first time I saw the place where sea meets the river. This was in Poovar. It is about 20 - 30 min drive from Kovalam. You can negotiate with outside cruise operator for a better rate. (we paid around 3500/-) for about 2 hrs cruising. You can do... More

Poorer island visit was out of the world experience. Standing between a river and ocean on a narrow lane of sand is really wonderful
