  Houseboats Features

Houseboats are 'legends of lagoons'. Once used for carrying rice and spices from inland village to towns, they reflect Kerala's culture and traditions. The entire luggage was covered with bamboo and the boats were held together with coir knots only and hence the name 'Kettuvallam' – 'Boat with Knots'. The entire boat is constructed with 'Anjili' wood. Only natural materials like bamboo, palm leaves, coir etc. is used for boat building reflecting Kerala's unique style of architecture.

When bridge and roads were constructed across lagoons, houseboats gradually disappeared from scene. Today, the houseboats are back with all the creature comforts of a luxury home- well furnished bedrooms, modern toilets, cozy living rooms, passages, kitchen and balcony. Majority of the house boats are air-conditioned and powered by engines.The truly magical about a houseboat ride is that you are in the midst of the lush greenery of otherwise inaccessible inland villages of Kerala, while you float. Also you can experience the pulse and innocence of village life.

A wide selection of beautiful canal ways is available for the cruise. The palm fringed earthen banks; mirror still lagoons and the picturesque beauty will never let you say 'bye' to 'Venice of the East'.Kerala is vivid varied in its cultures and festivals. Nehru Trophy Boat Race held in the commemoration of Late Prime Minister of India. Sri. Jawaharlal Nehru at the backwaters of Alappuzha is an example for the communal harmony and joint venture. Huge 'snake boats' are crewed by 50-100 men are the major attraction. Onam - the festival of harvest; which arrives in the spring season, is celebrated by all Keralites irrespective of cast, religion and race.
