I want to start by telling a huge thanks to kumarakom houseboats service as the experience was amazing. The food was mouthwatering and they gave us a well explained trip. They were very courteous which made us feel like home. I totally recommend this company to all.
Amazing experience. Food was absolutely superb. Thanks to Mr. Jayesh, the chef of cruise. Hospitality was very good. Staff of cruise was very cooperative. And also the rate was affordable.
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.
Good service, tastyfood, clean and neet boat. Enjoyed.
Great experience....We really enjoyed! Food was excellent. Staff was really helpful !
Must experience the back water cruise with an affordable price. Thanks to kumarakam for giving wonderful experience.
Great boat, great food, great route. We are a family of four travelling with our baby and toddler. We contacted Kumarakom Houseboats a week days before travelling with. We changed our minds lots of times on the dates and number of days due to other commitments. They were patient and polite with our changes. They even managed to change our booking whilst on the boat from one night to two. The food was wonderful and Midhun our cook was very friendly and accommodated our needs with a smile on his face. The driver was quiet which was fine. The manager even booked a taxi for us at the end of the trip. The boat was a large single bedroom one with enclosed downstairs and open upstairs. The whole boat was very child friendly which meant we could relax more. Perfect as we hadn't relaxed this much throughout our whole travels in India. A much needed break! Highly recommended.
Very nice experience. The boat was clwan and neat. Slowly it drifts through the backwater. Food was tasty. Houseboat owner Prasanth asked us beforehand what we wanted for lunch and prepared accordingly. He was also very helpful in arranging a pick because of vehicle strike that day. Overall recommend experience in Kerala and recommended service provider.
Friendly and very comfortable. Good food and clean rooms. Loved it
Very nice experience. It was our last moment plan, and this option popped up accidently. Searched on Google, and found the number of the manager who arranged a very nice houseboat for two families. The houseboats were well equipped, rooms nice and clean, well maintained. The washroom were very clean with a big bath tub. The houseboat had lots of nice wall paintings which made the boat look very rich. The outer corridors had dining table for 6 and good quality foam sofa for four. In addition, there were good spaces to sit on the deck. Although we booked our for four hours only (₹1000/hr, minimum 4 hrs) we had lunch on board (₹500/head very+non veg), is a very good houseboat for even full day with night stay. The food was really good authentic Kerala taste. The staff was very friendly and helping. They served tea and snacks in the evening which was the icing on the cake. The entire boat ride was fun through canals, around the island where you will have lots of nature beauty and serene atmosphere. All in all a very good experience. One star is reserved as we didn't do a full day trip, so we don't have night stay experience.
