Our Houseboats are comfortably furnished with an open lounge, one or two bath attached bedrooms and a kitchenette,
and are extremely eco friendly, merging smoothly into the panorama. Every houseboat is manned by a crew - usually a cook, a Captain, and an Oarsman. The kitchen in the houseboat or ketuvallam is the production center of the best traditional Kerala food. The availability of fishes all along the backwater add special charm to the authentic Kerala cooking. Fresh materials are used and purchased locally to support the economy of the village. Authentic Kerala food is prepared under high standards of hygiene and professional competency
by expert cooks, who have been specially trained
