  • 5 star review  Kumarakom Houseboats is an experience of a relaxing cruise on the Vembanad backwaters combined with great tasting Kerala style food(with karimeen fry) and service by the staff on board. Right from the time of the booking, the owner was courteous and provided the detailed itinerary with pictures of the boat and the menu on board. We were also given the option of selecting additional items on the menu like crab roast (as long as we paid extra). The food on board was not only delicious, the quantity was more than sufficient for a 5 person group. We paid an advance on the day before the cruise as part of the booking process(about half the price of the day trip 11 am to 4 pm) and the remainder on the day of the trip. The cruise took us through a narrow canal with houses on either side for the first hour and then to the vast Vembanad Lake for the remainder of the trip. We also stopped in between where we bought some crab which we were able to give to the staff and they cooked it for lunch. The backwaters are beautiful with a lot of greenery around as well as resorts. I would highly recommend Kumarakom Houseboats for a day trip.

  • 5 star review  Throughout the Kerala trip, the best experience my family and I had was on this houseboat. The staff on boat deserves a round of applause for their politeness, generosity and clarity that I could not find anywhere else throughout Kerala. We arrived late but these guys took the responsibility and took us on a cruise on the next day, that we had missed in the evening due to a car accident, and allowed us late checkout despite the itinerary being different. Another instance worth the praise was that the morning tea was not okay and when we informed them they served another tea again and it was really good. Food, rooms, cleanliness - everything is worth 5 star. Extremely happy with their service.

  • 5 star review  We had a very relaxing and plesent stay at the house boat. Views of the lake were breath taking complimented with amazing food served (lunch, high tea, dinner and breakfast) on the boat. The staff members on the boat were very courteous and humble. Rooms were neat and clean. Ambience was traditional Kerala style. Highlight of the day was fishing (I actually managed to catch a fish!!! thanks to the guidance provided at start by the boat staff). We also managed to see turtles, water snake and different types of birds. Would highly recommend that you reserve a day for this of you are visiting Kerala, it's totally worth it.

Pathiramanal is a small island located on the border of Kottayam – Alapuzha Districts in Kerala, India. The name ‘Pathiramanal’ means ‘Sands of night’. The island is located in the Vembanad Lake. The island is an easily reachable location in the Kumarakom – Muhamma water route. It takes around 40 minutes from Kumarakom to reach Pathiramanal from Kumarakom. The journey through backwaters of Kottayam District is a marvellous experience. The scenic beauty of both sides of the lake as well as that of the island is mind blowing. it is home to many rare varieties of migratory birds from different parts of the world.


Unbelievably beautiful emerald paddy fields, pulsating mangrove forests, coconut groves and canopies and enchanting waterways and canals decked with white lilies – little wonder that Kumaralom is considered paradise on earth. Forty two of the forty four freshwater rivers originating in the Western Ghats flow eastwards forming an intricate network of waterways. Backwaters are formed when these rivers empty themselves into the Arabian Sea. Kumarakom is perched on the western banks of the Vembanad Lake and has about 900 sq. kms of backwater ripples spread endlessly into the horizon. Kumarakom is a fascinating hamlet where tradition and modernity go hand in hand. A blend of tradition and culture is interwoven in the lives of the natives living in ancient rustic homes with temples and churches. At the same time, you can spot tourists glide through the canoe, motorboat or houseboats and accommodated in state of the art guesthouses, hotels and resorts.​
