I contacted Sreekumar in Jan 2014 to book a 6-day tour including 1 night in the house boat. I had already selected the hotels where I was going to stay as I was going with old parents and the prices Sreekumar offered were about 20% cheaper than on the hotel websites; hence I booked everything directly with him.

We had a booked a luxury houseboat based on the Trip advisor reviews and we were not let down. When we landed at the Government Boat Jetty we were sceptical looking at the houseboats but when we went into ours we were surprised to see a nice and neat looking room. It looks like any other hotel room with all... More

We took a house boat at kumarkom, Kerala at around 11:00 and sailed around the lake during the day. We stopped for a delicious lunch which was cooked on the boat itself. We then stopped for an Ayurvedic massage, tea and hot snacks. Dinner on the boat was again delicious. The sunset, birds, palm trees were all like in movies... More
