We offer 6 houseboats in Kerala, with a total of 42 sleeps with prices ranging from NaN to NaN per night.
Sailing on the serene backwaters of Kerala in a traditional houseboat, known locally as "kettuvallam", is an unparalleled experience. These houseboats offer an intimate glimpse into the local way of life, spectacular natural beauty, and the rich cultural heritage of South India.
Nestled in the heart of Kerala, the intricate network of lagoons, lakes, and canals forms the lifeblood of the region. Renting a houseboat here allows you to traverse these tranquil waterways, observing rural life unfold on the banks - women washing clothes, children playing, and farmers working in the paddy fields.
While traditional in design, Kerala's houseboats offer all the modern comforts and amenities that you might expect from a luxury hotel. These boats usually feature one or more bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, a living area, and a kitchen. Enjoy delicious, freshly prepared local cuisine on board, cooked by your personal chef using locally sourced ingredients.
Kerala's backwaters are a biodiversity hotspot. As you sail through them, you'll spot a variety of bird species, including kingfishers, woodpeckers, and cormorants. You might even catch sight of otters and turtles in the water.
Anchoring at various points along your journey allows you to engage with the local culture. Visit small village communities, witness traditional dance performances, and explore centuries-old temples. Each stop presents a new opportunity to learn about Kerala's rich heritage and traditions.
There's something profoundly calming and invigorating about living on the water, surrounded by the soothing sounds of nature. A houseboat holiday in Kerala will not only provide relaxation but also a rich, cultural immersion into an authentic Indian way of life.
