The ambience is awesome with every corner done aesthetically. The staff... More

This place is for a relaxing holiday. I was impressed with their staff and their service. Properly has only 8/10 rooms in a hilly area. I took sea facing rooms with balcony. Due to limited number of rooms, their entire staff gives you full attention. Its more like a home stay. We specially liked the food both lunch and breakfast,... More

I was really debating over whether to give this place 3 stars or 4. I ended up giving them 4 because the staff and hospitality are great here. And as most reviewers have mentioned, the views and the surroundings of this place are amazing. The reason why I was thinking of giving them 3 stars is because there is room... More

The resort is located over a hill, with a great view of poovar beach...but the beach is not accessible. The pool is neat n clean, kids would love it... Food is prepared as per order and it's never served on time, but it's very tasty and fresh... Highly recommended...

Over the Hill is a holiday home, over the hill. Ideal An ideal weekend getaway for those ‘over the hill’!, literally. A quiet, cozy and exotic resort tucked away from the daily grind atop a picturesque hillock in Poovar – as their website claims. Minimalistic and simple yet comfortable, well appointed rooms with all modern amenities, personalized care, fine dining... More

Was an excellent getaway for the entire team. The manager of the resort was very helpful and a thorough professional though I dare say we must have tested his patience to the limit. The pool was beautiful and well maintained and the warm water was heavenly . The rooms and cottages were very spacious, comfortable and neat. The food though... More
