We booked online after checking Tripadvisor reviews. And it did not disappoint us.
We were 2 couples, boarded at about 2 pm. Had lunch and just lazed around on the deck post then. The boat is very beautiful, clean and with all amenities. The people helping you on the deck are very polite and helpful.
Improvement areas: Food quality and options. Not that it is bad, but it could be better.
Also during the evening make sure to get the deck covered before it gets dark as otherwise lots of insects and lizards creep in.
The boat was in good condition. Food was of great quality.Had a great stay. Not more than one night recommended.
Glad we prebooked Deluxe AC 2 bedroom Pournami Houseboat ,online. Right from check-in-and check-out, it was comfortable. We were received at the car parking lot few steps away from the houseboat. At the houseboat we were welcomed by the Captain and 2 cooks cum helper. A welcome drink of lemonade and fresh fruits basket quenched our thirst as it was pretty humid. For the next couple of hours we sailed on the serene lake surrounded by huge coconut trees and villages. The lunch, the tea , the pakoras, the dinner and South Indian Breakfast really yummy. Great Cooks !!!!!! . The captain very informative and jovial nature. TV and music system entertained us. We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary at the Houseboat . Both the ACs very effective. While leaving we were thinking when to come next. Congrats and Best Wishes to Pournami Houseboats(SpringBay Holidays P Ltd) for making our Trip a memorable one. Rajeev Mittal & Family

Thanks ..Pournami Houseboat
It's really amazing. Very good and polite staff. Good Meals. Very clean rooms.
will definitely book again. Also the backwater ride was good.
Like everybody else, was searching the net to book my house boat trip for 6 adults and settled on Pournami Houseboats for two reasons.
1 Their rates were excellent, very competitive and the photos of the house boat were inviting.
2 Whilst in the process of making the booking I spoke with Parvathy who is an excellent ambassador for Pournami boats and she very kingly and patiently clarified all my questions.
On arrival, at Alappuza Nehru finishing point we were greeted very warmly and the crew were excellent. The accomodation was great and the food was top notch.
It is our opinion that if Pournami were to maintain the standard and competitive rates, they will continue to attract more tourists and business. Some operators appear to be extremely over priced and therefore Pournami will always have the advantage over those operators.
Thank you to the Pournami Team for a great time.
If we do come back for another holiday, I am sure we will, rest assured, we will contact you for a booking.
“Awesome experience Friendly and cooperative crew, mindblowing food”
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 . 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.
