Poovar Island Resort Trivandrum Reviews

Not all that impressive May 15, 2010
I visited the Club Mahindra Associate Resort in Poovar in September, 2007. I think it is called the floating palms resort as the cottages are floating on water, but you do not realize it and this fact at least does not add much to the beauty of the resort.

This Poovar Resort is about a 45 minute drive from the Trivandrum Airport. It is advisable that you call a cab from the resort to avoid getting fleeced by the local taximen and also the taxiwallahs from the resort know the way as you need to negotiate your way through some long winding roads and go to a ferry terminal which all taxi drivers will not be able to find unless they know the place well. You can access the resort by a short ferry ride of about 20 minutes which is complimentary.

On arriving at the resort you are given a welcome drink which I did not like much at all – but I think it is a local specialty. I think at the time I visited this resort the relations between the Poovar Resort and Club Mahindra were pretty strained as the reception staff kept deprecating the Club Mahindra brand for various reasons. However, the room was great with good amenities – not as good as a Club Mahindra Goa Resort or the Coorg Resort but almost 80% there. The resort has antique furnishing and a comfy reclining chair (which could give the lazy boy good competition) and a bed which I found very cushy comfortable.

You can venture out straight from the room to the beach and the back waters are just about 20 metres away. I suggest you choose these resort for a simple relaxing weekend – where you want to spend all the time t the resort.

Uninviting floating cottages Aug 10, 2010
The place was ghastly, considering it is associated with Club Mahindra.

Service was poor. I was told when I made reservation on phone that someone would be there to receive us and also would be offered welcome drinks. But no welcome nor drink was there.

The place was undergoing major maintenance work while I stayed there.

The floating cottages looks like a mess. and doesn't seem like any of the few cottages were occupied with guests. No surprise there.
