House Boat

Alleppey called the Venice of the East is a labyrinth of canals, lagoons and the lake.  A cruise through these backwaters enchants you with its breathtaking beauty and remains one of the most beautiful memories of your life. Alleppey is a centre for coir making and also has many religious and cultural monuments of interest.

A leisurely cruise in a "Kettuvallam" (Houseboat) through the enchanting backwaters is an experience surely not to be missed. The backwaters with palm fringed narrow canals winding through the vast expanse of paddy fields and the neat tiny hamlets lined up along either side of the canals are a most beautiful sight one can never forget. While on the ride, you will skim past ancient Chinese fishing nets, water lilies, lush paddy fields, coir villages, rustic homes, temples and coconut groves. A guided tour down the backwaters will reveal to you some interesting facts about the life of local village people and also provides a complete and most enchanting experience on the back waters of Kerala.

As a visitor to Kerala a ride through the backwaters can be a incredibly different and unusual experience just floating in the backwaters. The houseboat contains well furnished bath attached bed rooms, sun bath-deck, lounge cum dining room and a hygienic kitchen. In the boat kitchen, we prepare delicious Kerala food. Two boats-men and an expert cook will accompany you in your trip. For making your trip more comfortable, we have provided modern facilities like electric lights, fans, European style bathroom and showers etc. in the boat.


The house boat provides the experience of living on the water in an elegant bedroom, with all the conveniences of a luxury hotel. Delicious food is offered inside the house boat which will be a local cuisine loaded with rich spicy fish delicacies. Western cuisine will also be offered.


When this palace glides along the vast green expanse of back waters you can experience the most exciting spectacle of the world. The rice fields, villages, lush green shores amaze your sense of beauty. The culture of Kerala can be studied in close proximity as house boats usually travel to the interiors of Kerala.
