Kerala houseboat rental

Kerala was once known for hill stations like Munnar, developed city of Cochin and its Chinese fishing nets. But God’s own country in the recent years has earned a global recognition as a must visit place for any kind of tour or vacation. One of the unique travel experiences one can get in Kerala are the houseboats.

The continually increasing fame of these traditional cargo carrying kettuvellams has evolved as a major tourist attraction leaving you with a travel experience that’s out of this world. The kettuvellams have undergone a massive make over but have retained the traditional appeal. They are extremely comfortable and in par with all the facilities you receive in a niche hotel.

The Kerala houseboat rentals too in the recent years have been customized to make them affordable without any compromise in the quality of service and gaining the ecstatic experience that has been a quintessential reason in the growing fame of the Kerala houseboat cruises.

You can take up a Kerala houseboat on rental and enjoy the cruise as if it were your boat house. There are houseboats with single room accommodations and apt for couples or singletons.

With increasing fame comes higher amount of responsibility. Hence private as well as government tour operators responsible for organizing houseboat cruises have left no stone unturned to make sure you get the best deals on the cruises and professional expertise is available easily to tourists.

There are different kinds of houseboats available and you can choose a package and a boat that fits your budget and requirements. Alleppey and Kumarakom are the two prime regions where houseboat cruises are extremely popular. You can choose from

  • The last and fastest tour option is to rent out motor boat if you can’t or do not wish to take a houseboat on rental or spend a day or two on cruise. You can take a half hour quick tour on the motorboat and enjoy the scenic beauty of the backwaters and the surrounding villages.

There are nearly 40 rivers, lakes and natural canals that connect the coastal towns of Kerala. The best way to explore these waterways and network of canals and rivers is a through a mind-blowing houseboat cruise.
