Experiencing parts of Kerala that can’t be seen on foot or even in a car. A feeling that will humble you and possibly make you see beauty in the most unexpected of places. We recommend this experience to one and all!

What we love

  • Glide over these exotic waters, which afford you glimpses of typical Kerala life.
  • The finesse, peace and warmth with which the crew serves is unbelievable. All this while navigating the boat, whipping up your fancy meal, and educating you about Kerala! Note: These people haven’t undergone any hotel management courses. This is the real deal.
  • Watch the birds and get some great snaps of them. The exotic ones will be perched atop long bamboo sticks in the water; the hungry ones will be diving into the water to catch their prey; those feeling thirsty will be fluttering around, while the wet ones will be basking in the sun drying out.
  • On board, you can catch your own fish, crab or prawns and watch the crew slowly marinate them in chillies, ginger and lime. Mmm, we can smell it already…

What to know

  • The robust houseboats are made using local materials. There’s no fuss or luxury, but buckets of charm. Be prepared for basic, yet clean and comfortable accommodation.
  • The houseboat docks when the sun has gone down. Wherever you are, sit back and relax with good food and drink, and soak up the magical atmosphere.
  • You must carry a hat, sunglasses and a tube of mosquito repellent.

Awesome Things to do nearby


A Village Walk

While taking a walk in the village, observe the daily activity being carried out on the beautiful waterways - fisherman patiently waiting for the fish to get attracted to the little bait, women washing utensils to prepare the next meal and children splashing around. Meet villagers who welcome you whole heartedly not just into their homes but their way of life too.

Chinese Fishing Nets

​Chinese fishing nets also called Cheena vala are fishing nets that are fixed land installations for an unusual form of fishing - shore operated lift nets. It was earlier thought thet nets might have been introduced by the chinese explorer Zheng He. Recent research however shows that these were introduced by Portuguese Casado settlers from Macau!


Meeting the real locals

Sing with the birds, run with the butterflies, hear the sound of insects, soothe those tired eyes with the greens or just inhale pure oxygen.

Allow these little creatures and wonders of nature to be your host and we promise, you’ll be surprised. For the best experience, do find out when they like to entertain guests.
