Houseboats and Cruises


Backwaters of Kerala

, with only waterways in the name of road network, capture the fascination of worldwide visitors for its simple yet exotic sightseeing prospects on a cruise down the backwaters in a houseboat.

The Kerala Houseboats that cruise the backwaters are giant country crafts termed “kettuvollams” in the local language, which means boats of knots. An entire clan of artisans constructs these boats meticulously and skillfully by tying huge planks of jack wood together. Remarkably, the boats do not use even a single nail in their making.

The Houseboats are extremely eco friendly, merging smoothly into the panorama. An English speaking crew, comprising of a cook, a guide and oarsman, mans every houseboat. Though houseboats rowed by oars are prevalent, there are houseboats that are propelled by engine. A floating conference hall is another astounding variety of houseboats found on the backwaters, designed for as much as 35 persons, equipped with a dais and a sophisticated public address system.

The Kettuvalloms are comfortably furnished with an open lounge, one or two bath attached bedrooms, a kitchen and a sit out on the deck. Sitting on the deck at night relaxes body and soul while watching the vast starry sky over head. Sitting on the deck during the day offers a unique feel of composure while watching the beautiful landscape constituting of the birds and aquatic life around the fertile paddy fields and villagers carrying on with their day-to-day lives, along the banks of the Kerala backwaters. Besides gliding in the houseboats, one can also take the pleasure of exploring, swimming, fishing, bird watching or just lazing around in the sun.
