We were here for 3 nights in March and it was wonderful!! So peaceful and quiet, food was amazing and there was so much of it!!! Rooms were big and clean, water is complimentary. There is a small shop about 10 min walk back the road where you can buy juice, snacks and fruit. Take a few books with you... More

It's hard to find the superlatives to describe this experience. A boat of your own, no motor just manpower, quiet backwaters full of wild life and local people going about their daily lives. Manu, our chief boatman was so knowledgeable, and was able to spot the wild life long before we did, and the food.....the food! You will not get... More

Wow! We had such an incredible time on this back waters trip. The trip included staying on a houseboat for 24 hours. Although the boat was simple, it had everything we needed. There wasn't nothing more idyllic than sitting at the front of the boat while our two boatmen punted along silently through the tranquil backwaters without a motor in... More

My boyfriend and I were looking forward to a trip on the canals in Kerela but were unsure who to go with. We were recommended this tour by another traveller and so booked as soon as possible. When we went we were greeted by the friendliest staff, who showed us around the boat and explained the details of the tour.... More

We stayed on the farm for 2 peaceful nights & enjoyed fantastic home-cooked food every night. The service was fantastic with the family working there being incredibly helpful & friendly. Our room had a beautiful view being immediately next to the backwaters & we enjoyed sitting on the patio in the comfy 'deckchairs' watching the Chinese fishing nets in action... More

We planned a family trip this monsoon. This was my 2nd trip to back waters. This time we planned for a stay at some peaceful place unlike last time when we visited at Allepey, Munnar & Thekkady. Hence we chose this farm house which was nearly 25kms from Ernakulam station & 35kms from Allepey. They arranged our pickup at some... More

A driver arranged through BWFH picked us up from fort Cochin and took us to the accommodation. The drive was quite hairy at times but we arrived an hour later and cost 600 rp. Our room was very basic but clean and had an outside bathroom. Overlooked the water which was nice. In the afternoon we were taken on a... More
