At Vembanad, a beautiful houseboat awaits to welcome you. You will check-in at about noon and we only hope you have a memorable experience ahead. A houseboat cruise is the only right way to experience the serene backwaters of Kerala in its true essence. Since the boat cruises at a gentle pace, you will have plenty of time to relax and feast your eyes on the quaint village scenes across the lake. Some of the pleasant scenes include tropical coconut palms, paddy fields, traditional huts and cottages, beautiful canoes and villagers going about doing their daily chores. To add to your experience, you will also have an opportunity to try your hand at fishing during the evening. We are sure you will remember this journey for the rest of your life. 

Your houseboat will have an air-conditioned room with an en-suite bathroom. The air-conditioner is kept on only from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM. But at an additional cost, you can have the AC on for the whole time. The houseboat staff consists of two heedful men who are always at your service.

All your meals will be taken care of by a special chef at the houseboat. You can always feel free to tell him your preferences. Tea, snacks and a welcome drink are also served to you during your cruise.

We hope you have a good sleep amidst the waters.



DAY 10

You will check out of the houseboat at about 9:00 AM after your breakfast and then we will take you around the serene village of Alleppey so that you can enjoy glimpses of a typical village life and get to know the cheerful people living there.
