The Houseboats of Kerala are giant country crafts, measuring up to 80 feet in length, retrieved from being lost to the State altogether, made with wooden planks, joined and stitched together with coir (coconut Fibre) ropes and painted on the outside with cashew nut shell oil or fish oil. It takes great skill and meticulousness to construct these giant Houseboats by tying huge planks of jack wood together.
As the houseboats glide over the Kerala backwaters at a leisurely pace, the sights are new, the sounds are new, and every sensation is new every passing moment. These houseboats are equipped with all the amenities of a hotel room like an open lounge, one or two bath attached bedrooms and a kitchenette, and are extremely eco friendly, merging smoothly into the panorama surrounding them. There are many prescribed paths for houseboat cruises in Kerala.
All houseboats are luxury boats with a/c, non a/c bed rooms, manned by a 3 man crew including your Captain, Engine driver and personal Chef. The highest classifications awarded by Dept. of Tourism for Houseboats are Gold Star and Silver Star. All the Houseboats dealt by us are either Silver Star or Gold Star.
