We have booked a packaged tour through Sreekumar (who is also the owner of this houseboat company). The trip was awesome, and last but not the least, the surprise was the houseboat. He has provided us a 1BHK houseboat (very few companies will provide you a 1bhk boat). The boat was nice and well decorated. Both the stuffs (boatman and cook) were nice and friendly, and can understand hindi and english both. They have taken us through Alleppey and Kumarokom and during 5:30 the boat has stopped to an island. Food provided to us was tasty. Overall it was a soothing and enjoyable experience. We have enjoyed a lot and will like to go back again. Sreekumar was a nice person and have treated us greatly in the trip, he has taken care of even every small details to make the package trip a grand success.

Room Tip: It is a 1BHK houseboat , so that you can enjoy with your family without the intervention of others. You can request the boat to stop anywhere in case you liked the place or want to take some photos or want to go for a village walk. The driver and the cook was very friendly and comfortable in hindi and english both. For most houseboats this is not the case , and it was difficult to communicate (as I have heard from my other friends). Sreekumar is an excellent tour operator and he will take care of all thethings to make you comfortable.

a wonderful, lifetime's memory with your loved one/s taking a former rice house boat for an overnight or few days cruise wending your way in absolutely stunningly, beautiful backwaters - lazily watching morning turn to evening, night time, watching the fishermen & families go about their healthy sun bronzed days activities..... cooked for by the friendly, fun crew of 3 & then sleeping in a good berth with shower/wc facilities - Heaven on Earth..... highly recommendable for honeymooners, couples, friends, families - everybody would enjoy regardless of age & type... Namaste Shukria Danuvad one & all, Marion.

Room Tip: all rooms are adequately, clean equipped cabins with own bathroom/wc facilities for overnight or a few days stay on board.

We booked a 3 night house boat tour on an super luxury house boat. In addition, Sreekumar assisted with booking hotels (Kumarkom Lake Resort and Taj Malabar, Kochi) and a car and driver. I recommend working with him for booking your entire trip. Sreekumar is excellent at ensuring that every detail of your trip is looked after!! He is warm and hospitable and met us at the boat upon embarking and returning. To make the best of your trip, make sure you know and communicate what you want in your trip. for the houseboats, 4-5 star hotel luxury (go for super luxury), rustic but still nice 3-4 star accomodations (luxury) and deluxe for the more budget minded. The boat trip is extremely relaxing and the food is incredible and plentiful. For hotels, we highly recommend Kumarkom Lake Resort - true 5 star luxury with charm - go for the villa with private plunge pool, which also has jacuzzi jets. In Kochi, I would recommend that Malabar House for trendy boutique hotel travellers, the Bunton Boatyard for rustic, historic ambience and the Taj Malabar for a more corporate but high service level atmosphere.

It's a life time experience on a houseboat or a floating hotel. Away from all the traffic and pollution.
A great and wonderful trip that must not be missed. Good and tasty food. Feel relaxed and enjoy the nature. Strictly recommended.

Room Tip: Book in advance so that no waiting at the jetty. Travel at your comfort. Lunch , Snack , Dinner and Breakfast are prepared on the houseboat and the food is delicious. Bring reading material.Good family vacation. Rooms air conditioned. Booked my tour with experienced tour operator at good prices from Keralahoneymooners
