Houseboat summary

Driving these gorgeous houseboats are the perfect way to discover the amazingly beautiful backwaters of Kerala. However the design of the boats have not been changed, all comfort that you can possibly wish for is available. 

Houseboat description

"Pushing out of the shallow water with bamboo poles, the crew punts us toward the centre of the lake, where the captain turns on the quiet engine. He sits at the point of the bow, navigating by memory rather than charts, and we stretch out behind him on the forward deck on pillows and padded mats, enjoying the sun and the serene setting.” This is just one of the many great reviews we have received of visitors around the world and we could not put it better

Former rice and spice boat

For hundreds of years these gentle barges have been transporting spices and rice over the canals and lakes that are spread over the central part of Kerala. And they still do, but now it’s carrying guests who want to experience this amazing part of India – enjoying all the amenities you can possibly imagine. The hull has been slightly tweaked and the hold of the boat is conveniently transformed into separate bedrooms. This way these ‘Kettuvallims’ as they are called are converted into without a doubt one of the most amazing houseboats around the world.

 

Eco friendly houseboats

These Kerala houseboats are completely made of natural materials and are powered only by solar power, vegetable oil and a bamboo pole if needed. This way you can fully enjoy the natural beauty of the Kerala waters in a sustainable way.
