  • 5 star review  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.

  • 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.

They are both excellent cooks and they produced lovely delicious food in their very compact galley at the back of the boat.The boat is really cute, comfortable and clean.All in all, a really good experience and memorable moments., Highly recommended.,,,

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.​
