About the resort
The Maharaja of Travancore, Raja Marthanda Varma named it Poovar as he saw the beautiful red flowers blooming along the Neyyar River. This little piece of paradise, earlier known as Pokkumoosapuram is located in coastal Kerala in the district of Tiruvananthapuram and is cradled literally in the arms of nature. An island with an estuary, the River Neyyar flows through this hamlet and drains into the Arabian Sea
Nestled in this pristine world, tinged in shades of emerald and turquoise is the Club Mahindra Poovar property, where you lose yourself in a dreamy, luxuriant world. The coconut trees lining up on either banks of the river bend towards you. Rivers alternate with seas. Little palm fringed islands greet you as you go on a backwater cruise. The white sands of the beach beckon you. Sometimes you see two horizons as the estuary leads you to the sea. This is where you bond with your family and shut your minds to urban chaos as you float away in these waters into a tranquil zone
Club Mahindra Poovar is located at the southern most tip of Tiruvananthapuram (35 kms) as Poovar is one of the last villages of Kerala The closest town with a rail head is Neyanythakara at 10 kms and the closest harbour is Vizhinjam at 18 kms.
Poovar is good place for 3 to 4 days holiday. Club Mahindra has good properties at Poovar. The staff and cooking manager are very co-operative. The cook was making good pastry in short time.
