One of the most captivating experiences this city offers is the opportunity to rent a houseboat, traditionally known as a 'Kettuvallam', for a unique holiday.
A Kettuvallam is a traditional Kerala houseboat, elegantly crafted from jack wood, coir, and palm leaves, promising a unique blend of rustic charm and modern comfort. These houseboats are equipped with bedrooms, a dining area, and even a deck for relaxing and watching the world drift by. Some larger models also offer additional luxuries like separate living areas and even small plunge pools.
