“Peaceful retreat, delightful end to our trip in India”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We booked a 2-day houseboat with a 3-bedroom houseboat for 6 of us. It was so peaceful to gently sail through the backwaters of Kerala. You're constantly given treats of fruits, coconuts to drink, and fed plenty.

Shiam is the *best* cook and I lapped up everything he cooked. I can't believe that he's our personal cook for the 2 days! I would go back just to eat his cooking. Tell them that you want to buy additional fish and they'll cook it for you. We bought prawns, crabs, and fish. Our foodie tour guide in Madurai told us to ask them to cook the following two dishes and they are *so* good:
- Karimeen fry or polichathu (Pearlspot fish fry - they will cook the fish in spices wrapped in banana leaf)
- Chemmeen Moilee (Prawn Moilee)

For additional entertainment, you can ask to fish and drive the boat, and they'll oblige as well. All in all, it was a great end to our trip throughout South India!

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed July 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We booked four bedroom deluxe in Pournami houseboat, Special thanks to Parvathy for making all arrangements properly. It was awesome experience with the house boat. The boat was very good with neat rooms, comfortable bed, excellent bathroom, AC, cabinets in the room, table, and the deck had sofas and a dining table. The staff was too friendly and good at their job. the cruise in the backwaters for the full day.. we did fishing too...we gone for 1 week tour, but only houseboat and athirapally falls remains in our mind.

“A satisfying trip”
Reviewed May 21, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our trip started with a cordial introduction with the crew Mr. Vinod(cook) and Mr. Sridhar(driver) and a refreshing welcome drink. The rooms were cozy and neat. Dining table and couches were set outdoors so that we could fully enjoy the surroundings at leisure. The feel of having lunch in open air with water all around was really great. The food itself was brilliant. Kudos to Mr. Vinod for preparing such a delicious, wholesome and homely meal for lunch as well as dinner. In the evening snacks and tea and a hearty breakfast in the morning were also served. Not to forget a very refreshing pineapple-ginger juice served sometime after lunch. There is a lcd tv with tatasky connection available for when the boat drops anchor. En route there is place to shop for prawns, crab and fish if you need something extra for dinner. The cook prepares anything for free upto kgs. Overall it was a great experience and highly recommended.
