  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Houseboats in Kerala Houseboats in Kerala Houseboats in Kerala

Houseboats in Kerala are the best ways of experiencing this sun-soaked emerald land that lies sandwiched in between the cerulean Arabian Sea and velvety green Sahayadri's.

Houseboats in Kerala have a unique history and are an inseparable part of this seemingly quiet yet bustling water world that reflects the color of coconut palms, banana groves and thick green shrubs.

In the ancient times the Kerala houseboats were instrumental in transporting farm produce and local industry products from remote Kerala hamlets to the towns and cities. Though with development and improvement in communication the use and significance of these houseboats began to deteriorate till the tourism industry revived the tradition of sailing in houseboats as a holiday experience.

Houseboats in Kerala are essentially massive rice barges that are locally known as kettuvalloms. Made of coir mats that are joined together with natural glue obtained from local trees.

The special feature of these Kerala houseboats is the fact that they are made with a traditional method without the use of nails. Once constructed these massive barges sail with dignity without damage for more than 100 years at a stretch.

Houseboats in Kerala feature living rooms, sleeping areas, kitchenettes and sun decks. All houseboats in Kerala are equipped with crews comprising of a cook and a oars man cum guide.
