We came with cousins of ours for a daytime houseboat ride. It was a wonderful experience. The staff was courteous. The Kerala lunch was a delight and all of us (including the kids) were delighted by the experience. We would like to come back again. Seema & Girish

It was a wonderful experience, a very memorable trip along the backwaters onto the lake, one of life's experiences we will never forget. The captain and his team were excellent, food was well prepared and service 2nd to non. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere our time on board a floating palace.

Came here with our cycle kayak your with Kalypso adventures . It is a spacious if dark venue right on the backwaters . The food was fine but it was all a bit dated. They could have done more with the huge rice store in the middle . Very relaxing and a great place to kayak from Neil Rushton
