Xandari Riverscapes

Alleppey

Xandari Riverscapes are a fleet of house boats which sails along Vembanad Lake and in the backwaters of Alleppey. The houseboats are docked near Pallathuruthy Bridge.

The traditional houseboats, called "kettuvallams" have wood harvested from local jackfruit tree plantations, hand-stitched by local craftsmen with coconut fiber rope. We had 3 nights on xandari houseboats and could have happily stayed longer. Very relaxing to sit on the upper deck and watch the scenery go by. If you stay fewer nights you tend to be in the more crowded areas of the waterways, but we got to see much more of the area and were often the only boat around. The food was incredible (let them know ahead of time if you have dietary preferences) and all local dishes. The boat was very comfortable and the staff were lovely. We booked a 2 bedroom boat but ended up with a 3 bedroom, which was even better as included the upstairs deck.

Spice Coast Cruises - Houseboat

Alleppey

Featuring air conditioning, Spice Coast Cruises is situated in Alleppey, 16 km from Nehru Trophy Finishing Point. Free private parking is available on site. Meals are cooked on board the houseboats.

The accommodation has a seating area. Towels and bed linen are offered. We had an amazing time on the houseboat, there were 3 staff at the boat and they are all very nice! The food was absolutely one of the best meals we have during the whole trip. The boat is clean and comfortable, and it really worth the money even it might be a bit more expensive than other houseboats, but you really can feel the high quality. Since you will probably only do this once, I’d highly recommend this as it was truly a good experience.

All units include a fully equipped kitchen, allowing guests to prepare their own meals. Some units are air conditioned and include a seating and/or dining area.

A babysitting service is also available for guests at the boat. I was expecting a crappy little boat because I was traveling by myself but was totally surprised at how nice and comfortable the 1 bedroom boat was. The staff was friendly and eager to serve. The food was excellent and plentiful with many dishes available at each meal and all freshly made. I think one night was enough. The captain parked in a quiet spot as per my request and we also did some medium sized canals which are best for observing village life.

Soma House Boat

Alleppey

Located a 3-minute walk from Nehru Trophy Boat Race and a 2-minute walk from Nehru Trophy Finishing Point, Soma House Boat offers accommodation in Alleppey. The accommodation features a spa bath.

Ambalapuzha Sree Krishna Temple is 13 km from the boat. The nearest airport is Kochi International Airport, 73 km from the property. We booked 2 night cruise and I can highly recommend to have more than just 1 night as it allows you to see many different areas in quiet and relaxed atmosphere and not just hundreds of other boats doing their day trip. Staff exceeded my expectations. They were never visible but always present providing high quality service proactively and when needed. Water bottles were always replenished, dishes cleared immediately after dining, mosquito nets lowered at right time etc. Shower had ok pressure and bathroom was functional. Food was excellent. Check-in was easy as we had Internet connection on phone and property provided their whatsapp contact details day before so we could send them a message when we arrived to harbour and they came to pick up us to the right boat. Not sure how it would work without though.

We stopped overnight at a beautiful rice paddy that we were able to walk down too. It was home to a couple of families-they were all very friendly. The staff on board let us fish with them—a wonderful experience. The staff also were not overbearing— allowed us to have quiet peaceful time together. Asked if we wanted to get massages and go the the fish market-but were respectful and not pushy when we said no.
