Johnson's Homestay - Ecohouseboat offers a terrace. Was not convinced I should take Johnson's boat after looking at the photos on the website. But I can definitely tell everyone that it looks better than the photos. Great service, staff who don't bother you, but are there when you need them. Wholesome food!

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. The food was very good (especially the fried banana things!). The crew was also very nice and helpful.

A continental breakfast is available every morning at the boat. Wonderful experience with family....! Enjoyed the serene beauty of back waters. The day spent well inside the houseboat with kids having a good quality time. The food served was good. We could see some rare species of birds. And inside the boat they played nice malayalam songs soothing our ears.

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.
