Isolated beautiful place for relaxation. It is well suited for couples and people wanting some rest. The rooms were clean, spacious and neat. But getting to this place is a bit difficult. The beach is also really good.

This place is amazing, the only way to get here is via boat and the only place to get to the beach is via boat, keep that in mind when booking. The pool is incredible, the rooms are nice, not great but nice. This place is perfect if you need to hide from the world for a few. If you... More

Excellent pick up from airport and transfer to resort. Accommodation not as expected and needs updating (floating cottages). Was upgraded but still could not describe as luxury. Overall service of staff was excellent. Food was varied and very good. The location of the resort is very good if you want a laid back, quiet holiday (which we did) but might... More

We stayed at the Poovar Island resort for 2 nights last October. The resort is located in the middle of a beautiful back water surrounding and the only approach is through the resort's shuttle boat service (which runs frequently & on request). The resort's waterfront is lined by a row of floating cottages at either sides of the quay. The... More

We returned yesterday from a trip to Poovar Island, what a great holiday! Admittedly it's a long way to go, but if you choose your flights carefully and don't have too long to wait in Dubai, it's worth the trip. The transfer by boat, after an hour in the cool air-conditioned taxi, will give you some idea od the area.... More
