All together, we had a great and relaxing time on the boat. The staff were great and the food was delicious. The surroundings were simply stunning. However, the boat needs a little bit of an upgrade for this price.

HIGHS:
* extremely nice staff and very helpful
* food was delicious but the portions are enormous!
* you can ask to stop in markets, fish markets or in villages for a massage. We Stopped at a fish shop and got some fish and prawns and also in a market
* the AC works extremely well


LOWS:
* two single bed together do NOT make a double bed, we booked the deluxe boat so that was a bit of a let down
* the shower system is very poor
* although specified, remember there are no beverages available on board, you need to buy it at the office but their selection is pretty basic. I would suggest you do a bit of shopping before boarding!
* there is a need of refreshing furniture wise. For this price, it could be a little bit smarter
* they stop sometimes for the night in very busy places surrounded by other boats

Although there are more "lows" than "highs". The lows aren't too inconvenient. We would do a boat trip again.

I would definitely recommend Lakes & Lagoons. This was my one of the best experience in Kerala. Boat was really clean and the staff was really helpful too. It was a completely different experience.Thanks for Holidays2Kerala our Kerala travel agent & Lakes & Lagoons.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lakes and Lagoons houseboat thoroughly. The food served by the 3 friendly crew members was excellent. One of them kept us entertained with stories and provided exceptional service. We were worried that the kids would get bored but they enjoyed the experience of the houseboat. The boat itself was very beautiful with 2 bedrooms, mosquito nets ,AC etc. What more could we ask for. It was worth every penny.

Booking a houseboat was one of the best decisions we made when organising the trip. We stayed on the boat for 2 nights. We were 3 friends and booked a 2 bedroom houseboat, were however given a larger 3 bedroom boat. The crew consisted of 3 members taking care of us. The service was great and food delicious. We opted for vegetarian and seafood/fish dishes only and couldn't complain about any dish. We were generally not able to finish even half the food that was prepared for us. The boat was very nice and air-conditioned in the dining room and bedrooms during lunch time and evenings/nights. The boat was clean and the bedrooms were nice given they are on a boat. 2 nights were the ideal time to spend on this trip for us.

It was such an good experience with Lakes and lagoons, since the ambiance and the hospitality of the house boat and the crew members were mind blowing. The food which they prepared in the boat itself was fabulous and the security they offered while night stay at their own lake frontage property in the houseboat on the lake itself is also great.
We do not feel like we are alone or we are in a separate area.
The respect which all the crew members given to us are also awesome which is a great thing.
Though we are just 2 persons alone, I had the feel that we are secure only because its L&L and that's the only reason which I opt for them itself, since I had a good experience with them before also with my colleagues.

Love It... Its a good option for all..
