I have been to Poovar Island Resort and Club Mahindra resort,Poovar before. Poovar is a small coastal village at the southern tip of Trivandrum. Poovar backwater cruise charges is costly when compared to other places. I have seen the rates as 2500 INR/ 2 persons for one hour and 3500 INR /2 persons for 1.5 hours. You can bargain the rates very much. I don’t know how much company paid for us.
