“Worth!! Value for money”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This plan of hiring a houseboat was an impromtu call and am glas it worked out so well. The staff at the houseboat and Mukul who arranged this for us were exceptionally well groomed and offered a polite and top notch service. The food served on the boat was fresh and tasty. They cook authentic kerala veg and non veg or on demand regular punjabi food. My vote definitely for authentic kerala food.The staff on the boat will constantly guide you and tell you about the places you're exploring. Value for money, worth experiencing.. Kudos to the team.

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Really enjoyed this boat tour - takes you around the lake at Kumarakom. It's extremely beautiful and we saw some very interesting wildlife including eagles feeding, kingfishers and birds of paradise. Clean boat with very good food provided. Overall a great experience would recommend.

“How to find the right houseboat”
Reviewed June 11, 2017 for a stay in June 2017
2
people found this review helpful

We struggled to know how best to find the right company and what to expect from a range of reviews and how much would be good value off season. If you have time go and look around, do so. We didn't and the websites were hard to judge. We had a spacious boat with one bedroom (dbl bed) and attached bathroom, and a big living / dining area, at the front where we sat and read and chatted, clean, two staff; a chef and a boat driver (Anil and Santosh). We had two nights abd two days and expected to go down smaller canals and not spend so long on the big lake. The secret is to discuss your route before you go, map (google maps are best) in hand. They will stay where they can get power and there seem to be regulations about where they can stop. Only with power can the AC work so only when stopped and at a place where they can plug in. The food was excellent, simple, local South Indian dishes, delicious breakfast and smoothies. Missed fresh coffee and different teas. Also ask or take your own alcohol and and luxury foods. Arrangements for taxi from Fort Cochin and to airport were excellent. We are giving 4.6 stars because we were looked after well, some refinements would have made the trip perfect. Fresh Coffee, bigger bed sheets and an evening glass of Sula! Value for money off season RS 8-12,000 high season RA 14-18,000 per night. Kumarakum was perfect for us and less crowded. Pip!

“A/C Houseboat with Excellent Chef”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

people found this review helpful

Great Trip. My wife and I booked a houseboat through this operator for 3 days/2nights. A driver picked us up from the Cochin airport and took us to the boat jetty (approximately 2 hour drive). The boat itself is two bedrooms. Each with its own bathroom and a living room in front which is encased in glass. There is a kitchen in the back. The whole boat was ours which was very nice. The boat is staffed by 3: a cook, a captain, and an assistant. The handsdown best part of the trip was the food. It was fresh and delicious. They catered to our vegetarian needs while also staying wary of my wife’s peanut allergy, but still presented a varied and delightful array of Kerala specialties. We actually stayed a third night in the region as well at an unaffiliated spa resort, but Mukul (the manager) arranged for car transfers both to the resort as well as to the airport afterwards. As a side note there are a few specifics for the boat: The A/C unit in the bedroom is great, the one in the living room is underpowered and unable to adequately cool the room. When the boat is moving this is not an issue as the breeze great. The bathrooms have flush toilets and a shower however the shower is salt water and not technically heated (the summer heat actually warmed the water to a comfortable temperature and the staff offered to stove heat water if you really needed it-which was not the case). The crew were amazingly nice and very pleasant. The captain explained many of the sites and areas as we passed by. Would definitely recommend.

“Highlight of our trip to India!”
Reviewed April 2, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had an amazing time on the houseboat. The boat had overnight air conditioning (all we needed but you can pay extra for all day), an amazing roof top terrace, washroom with flush toilet & shower and a great bed. We spent most of our time enjoying the amazing view from the roof top terrace, it really is God's own country. Plenty of amazing bird watching too. Our boat also had a full time cook and driver which were very friendly and attentive. The food was always so fresh and delicious with amazing variety. Highly recommend!
