Poovar is a stretch of backwaters cum beach at 20 kms from Kovalam. Poovar Island Resort was the first resort to have come up in the area and made a destination out of Poovar, which is actually an extension of the Kovalam area. Floating cottages at Poovar Island Resort, were the first of its kind to have come up in India and gave destination the fame it still continues to enjoy.
Unique element of Poovar experience is the fact that all resorts here are accessible via land but the as a concept all the resorts here offer guests a boat access giving a feeling of being an island. The resorts overlooking scenic estuary, an area where the backwaters overflow into the beach and vice versa.
Poovar enjoys a destination getaway status where guests arrive for a couple of days of relaxation and a cut off time. Resorts here have excellent Ayurveda facilities and therefore double up as excellent Ayurveda getaways.
Prominent resorts here are Poovar Island Resort, Estuary Island Resort and Isola Di Cocco.
