We spent 6 days in kerala and the houseboat stay was the best among them. A beautiful day and night surrounded by water wil amaze those who love nature. They serve fresh food and staf are really helpful always. Lovely experience.
WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. We booked one bedroom houseboat from Amrutham houseboats. The route was kumarakom to alleppy. Route didnot covered any scenic views of the lake. Out of around 20 hrs, move was moving for not even 2hrs. Remaining time it was stationer at remote location which was very dirty. There it was difficult to be on the boat but there was nothing outside also . No entertainment nothing. Checkout location was also some remote location and not proper alleppy houseboat jetty.
We felt like being cheated. The boat diddnot took us to the canals in the lake for which the kerala is famous for. After houseboat, we took another houseboat for 3 hrs and saw the scenic views.
In addition, the bedroom and washroom were not upto the mark. They should be more clean.
Only good part was vegetarian food was good.
We stayed at this houseboat for 1 day and we had a great time. The chef and captain were professional and dint disturb us. I went with my mom and sister and we felt quite safe in this place.
The only problem was we dint know how the boat looked before booking the place and i thought it will be spacious but it was a bit conjested. We booked one room house boat.
Overall we had a great time.The customer service from start to finish was perfect.
The scenery is amazing and this is definitely one of the nicer boats." wonderful experaince ..thanks to the team amrutham
Had a wonderful 5 hour day trip in one of the beautiful houseboat. Our trip starts at kumarakom backwaters..This 1 room boat was specially for us and we really enjoyed the Kerala Lunch in Banana leaf.
We rented the house boat for a day-night in Kumarakom and had the best relaxing day of our whole trip. The journey was most comfortable and the service was excellent. Food was prepared to our taste and served fresh and hot. The Currimeen fish was delicious. The company provides excellent customer service. We also had Ayurveda massage treatment at nearby center. The therapists were very professional. We are really happy about the time and money spent.
We loved our overnight stay on the rice barge. The staff were superb, friendly and helpful throughout the entire trip. The food - including tea time snacks was always excellent and beautifully presented with gallons of bottled water available. Lunch was a veritable feast with an array of tasty Keralan dishes made as spicy as you wished. The banana fritters at tea time were the best ever and dinner was fabulous. We loved spending time watching the world go by on the top deck and the stay overnight by a small village was fun. All in all, this was a very enjoyable experience and one we would highly recommend.
