“A Memorable house boat trip”
Reviewed May 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

First and foremoset we would like to thank Dr. Anu S Jayaram, MVSc scholar of Madras Veterinary College for suggesting "Pournami house boats" for our trip.

We, a family of three took the pournami single bed room AC deluxe house boat on 3rd and 4th May 2015. We had a wonderful and memorable trip in the house boat. We really enjoyed the cruise, hospitality, food, guidance and sight seeing during the entire trip. We could feel a "Professional" touch during our entire travel in the house boat and in all activities and happenings during the trip. We relished all the kerala dishes served in the house boat.

Fortunately the day we hired the house boat (May 3rd) was a full moon day (Pournami in Malayalam) and it perfectly matched with the "Pournami house boat", especially the night hault along the river shore with full moon on top of us and its shadow in the running waters was mindblowing.

We would strongly recomment "Pournami house boats" for our friends and relatives who are planning a house boat trip in Alappuzha. We wish "Pournami house boats" to continue their excellent services in future...

Thanks to Mrs. Parvathy for the excellent guidance before, during and after the cruise

“Excellent service coupled with clean House Boat”
Reviewed May 4, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I had booked a 2 Bedroom Deluxe Semi-A/C HB, for mine & my extended family. The HB was clean and in excellent condition. The staff were extremely courteous and went out of the way to ensure our comforts & safety (especially since I had a 1 year old baby girl). Truly an enjoyable experience. The food was really tasty & good, except for breakfast which could have been better.

On the whole a very good experience and I would definitely recommend Pournami Houseboats....

“Enjoyable stay with very Friendly staff and great food”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed on a one night cruise with Pournami Houseboat 4 Bedroom. The houseboat was very neat and tidy. With very friendly staff and delicious food on board. The occasion was my parents Anniversary and we had a very enjoyable and memorable stay at the houseboat.
The staff was very friendly especially "Aravindan" and explained to us all the history and guided us through the whole tour.
Everyone in our family was very happy with the service, food and everything at the houseboat.

We were 5 adults, it was our virgin stay over the water on a house boat. we had a very pleasant experience overboard. Orderly arrangements, tasty food hot and timely, neat, spacious, well-lit rooms and bath, kind staff with helpful bent of mind, and to cap all these, an excellent communicative office/managers/staff on the land terminal, prompt in pickup and were kind in arranging us a taxi for onward journey / tour of cochin/Ernakulam. We will willingly recommend "Pournami", yes, everyone of us.

“Good food and journey but houseboat condition/infrastructure should be imoroved.”
Reviewed April 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Overall good experience...houseboat was old. I felt only foreigners got good and new houseboats. They should also take care of indian visitors. Food was good. Staff was supportive. But i think they dont like kids. They should have one guide kind of person who can explain us the places on the way. I will recommend it to others but you should take care of these points care

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your review. Two things we would like to clarify
1)We don't have any kind of discrimination towards any of our guest .As we know that our future is in your hands.
2)We are confused with the point that we don't like kids as nothing was mentioned about this point in our guest report.

To our trip advisor visitors :
We always request our guest to take care of their kids especially during the houseboat cruising as our staff might get busy at times.

Thank you once again, we have noted all our suggestions .

“Calm & serene journey in backwaters”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had booked pournami houseboats for day cruise in allepey backwaters and I can say it was worth it. We enjoyed the ride and stay on houseboat. Everything including cleanliness, food, service , staff behaviour was very good. Beds were covered with neat & tidy bedsheet and toilets were clean.
Welcome drink & lunch was very good. Our only concern was evening snacks as they were very oily.
Overall I would definitely suggest pournami to my friends whoever visit allepey.

“Nice experience with Pournami Houseboat”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I booked Pornami Houseboat after searching so many houseboats online & finally decided to book Pournami houseboat based on reviews. We booked 2 bedroom deluxe houseboat, but we were provided 3 bedroom houseboat which was very big and was in very good condition. Wood work done on boat was very good. We enjoyed so much on houseboat, it was very good experience, my parent enjoyed lot on houseboat. Food served was very tasty, Staff was also good. Parvathy guided us for house boat booking & co-ordinated whole process of houseboat booking. I will recommend Pournami Houseboat.
