Kerala houseboat tours have become so popular that they have earned international recognition. Tourists from abroad repeatedly visiting Kerala mainly for the houseboat cruise experience have contributed immensely towards the improvisation and implementation of newer features to the traditional cargo carrying Kettuvellams.

Several tour operators have dedicated a page to showcase the myriad houseboat types and cruise options on their websites to make it easier for tourists planning to visit Kerala mainly from the cruise from abroad, neighboring states of India and even residents of Kerala.

Successful tour operators have gone an extra mile in presenting comprehensive details about the interiors and in-house service provisions you will avail depending on the boat and package you choose. These aspects actually contribute a huge help for foreigners and other state Indian residents to make a pick.
Before you consider a Kerala houseboat booking in advance either by a phone call or online you should check some information’s to have a clear idea of what you are paying for:

  • Different types of houseboat and houseboat operators have different kinds of kits at disposal as a welcome gesture. Petty as it may sound the welcome kit with its mélange of things at offer is  a pampering way to start the cruise hence do not feel coy in checking that out
