Poovar is lovely by itself with the estuary and the sea around. I traveled here in March 2016 as a family. With a pleasant jetty ride we reached the resort which has a beautiful garden and rooms are widely spread across.We stayed in the superior land cottage ,rooms were clean and compact. However we had problem with the Jacuzzi in our room which was later rectified.
Also they have drop service to beach from the hotel on a jetty on this remember to stick to time else they might not wait for your return which so happened with us and had to end up hiring a local jetty with great difficulty.
Buffet breakfast seemed decent and food is average.
We loved the ayurvedic massages they offered here.
To sum it up nice place to stay for a couple of days.
