About Houseboats in Kerala
Houseboats in Kerala are the unique in the world and the excellent mode of leisure trips and village sightseeing in Kerala. It is a traditional boat, which is made of bamboo poles and coconut palm leaves. The exterior of the boat is painted with protective coats of cashew nut oil. Cruising along the backwaters of Kerala is an unforgettable experience.

Note: If you book through our ‘Kerala Holiday Packages’, the houseboat cruise has been included there. Please refer the home page of this website to know more about our packages.
More than 2 days in a houseboat might be boring, and this is enough to cover all sights within 2 days. Therefore, I am not recommending cruising in a houseboat for more than 2 days.
We can facilitate houseboats for you from Alappuzha or Kollam. Kollam backwater is very close to Trivandrum/ Kovalam, therefore this would be better if your trip is basically focused on Trivandrum, Kovalam or Kanyakumari. On the other hand, if you extend your trip to Munnar or Kochi, then on the way you can choose the cruise from Alappuzha also.
How much does it cost to hire a houseboat?
The cost of the houseboat hire greatly depends on the quality of the boat, quality of services and the season.
