“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was definitely the highlight of our Kerala tour. What a beautiful and relaxing way to spend a day and a night! I was nervous because I get sea sick rather easily but that was not an issue at all. Crew was kind, helpful, and responsive. The food was AMAZING -- best food we've had all trip. Bedroom has AC and a fan to keep you cool at night and the boat is docked so it is still -- had a great, QUIET night's sleep, of which I cannot say the same for other Indian hotels we have stayed in. Definitely recommend.

“AN ULTIMATE BOAT HOUSE STAY ....AMAZING BACK WATER TRIP”
Reviewed June 29, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

We 4 Friends booked Directly Aqua Jumbo House Boat for our 2 Nights Back water ride and Over Night Stay @ Kumarakom Back waters.We got an outstanding support from Reservation guy`s to booking,Locating the Boat and our transfer arrangements etc.Owner came him self to receive us at the Boat landing and help us to made our Check in formalities smoothly.
We started our cruise around 12.15 PM thru the Vembanadu Lake and crew members served lunch ( Yummy ) and High tea by 04.30 Pm. Navigator Manish and Boat pilot Ratheesh and Chef Pradeep provided their Maximum supports for the sight seeing and our boarding arrangements for the entire two days
The dinner was really a Feast ......Delicious food we had ever. We got clear wifi signals while anchoring at the Night stay zone beside the Lake ,thanks for the Wifi facility they provided through out our stay .Fishing was really interesting,we got a good catch for a sufficient qnty chilly fish.....A big salute to chef for the great preparation .Tempting Jumbo lobsters seen on a small fishing canoe ,we shocked when heard the rate 1800/ Kg .....Boat was big enough and very comfortable with the open lobby arrangements . 100% worthy Trip and we are planning another trip probably by November with our Family group .
Thanks Aqua Jumbo for the memorable amazing experiences during our stay.
Our only suggestion is to provide some Indore games for the Guests to make them more comfortable especially for the multiple days bookings.

“Almost”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Good: Beautiful sceanery and excellent food. The Chef was the star of the crew. A unique experience and a must do if you are in Alleppey. We arrived early and were given breakfast which was appreciated.

Bad:The experience was let down by a strike in the area and a crew that didn't want to sail. This meant we spent far too much time moored up and too long on the big lake instead of experiencing the backwaters and Alleppey life as was advertised. The boat (Aqua Castle) is looking very tired with frequent electricity outages and intermittent wifi reception.

We had an amazing stay at Aqua Jumbo boat housed and the service was amazing , staffs were polite , kind and co-operative , ambiance were very nice , bedrooms were spacious ,bedsheets ,covers pillows were not ok . the outside visibility from boat was very good,. Food was amazing and well appreciated . It was great if they could get Wifi on the boat. One need to watch out for mosquitoes and insects during night time. The trip can be more entertaining by adding few activities (especially with kids on board) such as fishing, swiming etc
