A different and a nice experience on the backwaaers in houseboat. But it gets very hot during noon. Good views of nature as we proceed. But the mainainance is really bad. Its not clean unfortunately.

Speice cruises: Probably the best houseboat of the back waters. Nice space and very clean. Dedicated boarding area off Alleppey. The trip by itself is not great as you stay in the main large canals. The food was just OK and the staff service on...More

To experience backwaters of Kerala, visit Kumarakom or Alleppy and experience one night stay in a house boat. There are many other options like day time cruises and usual transport boats which are cheaper

My 'Very Good" score is based on my overall Kerala Backwater experience- not Alleppey and the houseboats etc you can take from here. If I had to score on that alone, I would score the backwaters a 'Poor" rating. Here are my reasons why. We...More

To my opinion Kumarakom would be better. Kumarakom is a sleepy laid down village. You will get better rate also here.
