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.

These floating houses have a unique history and are an inseparable part of Kerala. Quiet yet bustling, they traverse through the water world full of coconut palms, banana groves and thick green shrubs.

In the ancient times kettuvalloms were used to transport farm produce and local industry products from remote Kerala hamlets to the towns and cities. They were made of coir mats joined together with natural glue obtained from local trees. With development and improvement, these kettuvalloms were turned into houseboats and developed to promote a perfect holiday experience.

Special feature of these Kerala houseboats is 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.

Their main features are living rooms, sleeping areas, kitchenettes and sun decks. All houseboats in Kerala are equipped with crews comprising of a cook and an oarsman who is also a guide.
