So the boarding time is 11.30 a.m. but we reached really late at around 2 p.m. due to rains and traffic. Even then, the crew were very understanding and compensated the time by not halting for lunch and providing an option to have lunch while cruising.
About the houseboat, it was clean, spacious and pretty. The bathrooms were super clean, you can use AC from night 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. giving you a comfortable sleep. There were speakers, TV, and everything possible to give you an unforgettable experience.
The on-board crew were very helpful, understanding and informative.
The food was beyond expectations. I still cant forget that amazing 'Bhindi sabji' we had which was cooked in a very unique style. Moreover, they served fresh fruits on board.
Overall, a beautiful experience to sail through the backwaters with friends :) Thank you Pournami!

It was a very good stay in the house boat.Staffs are very friendly and food was awesome.overall it was a great experience.
We had an awesome experience during our stay in pournami houseboat as a part of our family get together in alappuzha. Right from booking, the staff was very friendly and cooperative.
The houseboat was neat, tidy, clean and nicely maintained. The houseboat had sufficcient grille/glass protection so that we were feeling safe with our 7 kids. The houseboat staff too was very caring and friendly.
The best part was the mindblowing food that we had during the trip. Special mention to the cook and the kitchen crew for serving us such a wonderful food, thus making our trip memorable.
I heartfully thank Pournami Houseboats for providing us an experience of a lifetime! We were very worried initially about booking a good houseboat considering the limited budget we had as students. I am so glad that I contacted Pournami and had such a good houseboat experience. The staff is very courteous. I cannot recall the names, but a special mention to the cook, he was awesome! The cooks are usually very accommodating and they would cook according to your needs if you let them know about it. The houseboat was also very neat and tidy! I am in all praises about this houseboat experience!
I have no doubts in saying that this should be the undisputed choice of everyone looking forward to a beautiful houseboat experience in God's own country!
Thank you Pournami Houseboats! We are indeed very grateful for such a beautiful experience! :)
It was pleasant experience, neatly maintained house boat.A delicious home kind of food. Staffs are friendly and language does not matter at all. A bit over priced, but for the quality of experience you get does not feel bad.We wanted to have balcony, but Pournami does not have. Over all we all had wonderful experience, it is a unique home , but away from your own.
Everything is good about the houseboat. Food was awesome. Services are awesome. Price was little high, but as per the services and amenities its ok.
