“amazing experience - out of this world”
Reviewed November 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a two nights stay and we cant wait to go back. Starting from the response and support from shanti to the team on the boat, it was a mesmerising experience. Everyone was friendly and willing to go that extra miles to make us comfortable. The boathouse was clean and tidy and food was one of thebest we have had. Thank you guysfor making thr experience memorable.

“Best part of my Kerala trip!!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had booked this hotel just 1 night prior to our stay, after talking to the manager, Mukul, couple of times on the same day. Mukul had assured that the service levels would be good and the houseboat experience will also be nice. We checked in at 12.30pm and on check in we were served a welcome drink. The houseboat was nicely maintained and had a large living room cum dining area and 2 spacious modern bed rooms, a kitchen plus you could also sit at the deck next to the person who was sailing the boat. We were two couples and apart from us there were three staff including a service person a cook and a person sailing the boat.
The boat went around Kumarakom and Allepey from 12.30 pm to 5.30 pm however had halted during lunch time for an hour. Four meals were served i.e. lunch, dinner, evening snacks and morning breakfast. All the meals were delicious and quite like home food. On request they had switched on the ac 1 hour earlier. They also had a music system and some spot lights so we also danced and had fun in the evening. My wife got a severe headache and they helped us get medicines even at 11.30 in the night.
This was our first experience at a house boat and must say a memorable one. Truly this was the highlight of my entire kerala trip!!!! Thanks Mukul and his team….

“A memorable experience”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We took a sunset cruise for a few hours. It was the best part of our Kumarkom holiday. Very lovely and clean boat, and good hospitality by Mr. Praveen, Mr. Mukul and his entire team. Will come back positively for a day long stay with my partner someday.

“Clean Boathouse with finger licking food”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I am amongst those who dont mind paying for good services. I really appreciate efforts of Mukul and his team for making out Day cruise memorable. They have a fleet of Clean houseboats with or without AC , as may be desirable. Ours was a 2 Bed room AC boathouse and it was neat and well maintained. You can get your food highly customized and they have the best of chefs. Hospitality at its best

“Memorable Moments”

I made a booking through Kumarakom Holidays over e-mail 4 months in advance of my trip. I wish to mention the people namely Mukul, Shanthi and Praveen who have been extremely cooperative and patient in promptly replying to all my queries.

It was a surprise planned for my husband's birthday and they were kind enough to arrange for a birthday cake upon request. The staff on the boat were very courteous and friendly. The houseboat was maintained very well and we were provided delicious food as per our requirements. The cab was arranged on time for pick up and drop to the airport as well.

Overall a very pleasant trip executed with perfection. Thank you for making our holiday a memorable experience.

“Perfect way to enjoy your honeymoon”

I chose this location for my honeymoon and turned out to be a perfect spot. The house boat was really awesome with all the facilities in the room with bed, AC etc. The food they serve inside was delicious esp the curry meen(fish curry). The crew were so friendly and you feel the safest there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there in the back waters of kumarakom and Azhapuzha. And dont forget to ask about the massage which they will arrange. The price we got is twenty five thousand for two nights, this is in Aug 2015
