Houseboats

Houseboats are ancient "Kettuvallam" which once ruled the backwaters of Kerala as transport in water. These huge crafts upto 120 feet length were traditionally made from jackwood  and coir to bind the jackwood pieces. No iron or steel nails were used to fabricate these crafts. Once they ruled the backwaters of Kerala as cargo carriage vessels to transport rice, coconut  and other commodities from one place to another where land transport  was not easily available. Poled by one or two men from the head and tail side used to travel for days together to reach the destination.

These ancient Kettuvallams  retired from the age old cargo transportation are modified as todays Houseboats. Houseboats are a new addition to the tourism industry of Kerala - "Gods Own Country".

These houseboats are fully furnished with air conditioned single to multiple attached double rooms, private balcony, sundeck, dining hall and kitchen. A crew consisting of a chef, an oarsmen and a cabin assistant. The chef provides exotic cuisines which is typical Kerala style.
