Hi Senthil,

There are Deluxe, Super Deluxe, Luxury and Premium category of houseboats available. An overnight stay in the houseboat will be an ever cherishing memory for your family. During the houseboat cruise, you can enjoy fishing, local village walks, enjoy savoury foods, etc.

You can also go for Shikkara rides, Canoe cruises & Kayaking, if interested :)

Cheers,

Arun

Hi Senthil,

A total of ten people would mean that you require a 4 bedroom houseboat. Now, you have a choice ranging from the ordinary to the premium segment and everything in between. I would suggest that you go with a premium segment houseboat. I would also suggest that you do not go through a tour operator or an agent. They would only be interested in packing you off to a boat which gives them the best commission. Try going directly to the owner/operator who would be more service oriented. The price also depends on the menu for the lunch, dinner and breakfast and you need to specify them before booking the boat. The prices are inclusive.

Alleppey has a good beach and you can spend time there. There is also a private museum where you need to pay a certain amount to enter. If you are religious, do visit the many temples in the surrounding areas. The Payasam at Ambalapuzha Sri Krishna Temple is famous. A trip to some interior parts and you can see the famed snakeboats of Kerala (not in action though).

It is raining in the last two days and a houseboat ride would not be a very good idea with rains around. Check into a homestay, hotel or resort and take a few hours ride on the boat if weather permits.

Hope this helps.
