This trip was amazing, We didn't expect so good accomodation in the hotel(Misty Mountain Munnar). The food from restaurant was very good. Breakfast was prepared for vegetarians and non-vegatarians also for kids. Hotel was very clean and staffs were very polite and helpful. Outside of the hotel the show of Kathakali and fighting show is avialable. The view from hotel's... More

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. He responded... More

We hired the Maniyara boat single bedroom with the glass walls. Stayed with my family and got bored in the evening especially after sunset... The cruise itself was very nice with beautiful views of the backwaters, fields, sunset, etc. The boat handling was done very well too. The food was good. Staff were attentive. The power connection in the boat... More

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
