A wonderful night aboard the PicAdly Royal Suite houseboat on Lake Vembanad. Whole boat to ourselves, lovely king size bed with white clean bed linen. Jacuzzi bath that we did not use (our choice) but a very good shower. Marvellous calm way to cruise once you clear the main exodus from the dock. Beautiful views and a great opportunity to get into a smaller boat to explore the smaller waterways and villages, great local guide who answered all our questions. Chef on board did a marvellous job of catering to our vegetarian needs, much too much tasty food for us so had to request a reduction in quantity! Lovely fresh fruit and food, staff great and couldn’t do enough for us. Captain a gentleman helping a lady get on and off the boat.

Had an incredible experience with Alleppey Backwater Cruises. Our interactions with Vaneeth were easy and his follow through was great. Boat takes a little adjustment - it is not exactly the same as a hotel room but once you get used to that it is just an amazing experience. Crew on our boat were all wonderful….cheerful, hard working, accommodating and they just made sure we had a great time. Food beyond wonderful….you will not be hungry …they were great also because they would give us the meal plan ahead of time and make sure we were ok with it. Village walks were so memorable and really allowed you to understand village life and allowed you to interact with local people who were al so wonderful. Highly recommend this experience

Had an extraordinary involvement with the houseboat, the boat was perfect and food was generally excellent. Ride was smooth. It was a superb outing, one of the most mind-blowing I had in my life. I truly partook in all the food and the staff on the boat were so quite obliging.

It was a fantastic experience staying on a Waterwheel Houseboat, which met all of our expectations for cleanliness and basic amenities.The rooms and interiors were elegant and well-kept. We relished a traditional Kerala lunch in the beautiful weather and midst of lively music.
Would ideally return in the future.

The boat we were on seemed like it was brand new and spotlessly clean, the crew couldn’t have been more friendly. Despite a small hitch where we were sinking due to a malfunction of the marine manifold system the trip was absolutely stunning, comfy bed and luxurious quarters we were surprised to have the boat to ourselves too for its size.
Tip, ensure you stock up with your tipple of choice beforehand as there is no off licence by the side of the river…..

We booked the houseboat for 3 nights, and it was absolutely amazing. Our crew were so lovely. The food was wonderful. I cannot recommend this trip and this company highly enough. 3 days of pure chilled out bliss. Just me and my friend on the boat having a completely chilled out time. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew. The boat was very clean and our bedroom and bathroom were excellent.

Unsure who our travel agent booked our traditional cruise with but our boat was called the Golden Peacock. After being dropped off by our driver we were met by the captain and took a brief walk along the river to our boat. An adventure boarding and very pleased with our boat. The lower level had a seating area, the bathroom and 2 bedrooms if needed - both with air conditioner. Very clean and comfortable. It also was where the chef did his cooking. The upper level is reached by a small flight of steps - to an open area - under cover. We stayed there the whole afternoon and enjoyed the breeze, air and views. Photographic opportunities everywhere we looked. The boat was on the larger side so we didn't venture into the smaller waterways/ backwaters but it didn't matter. There were palm tress and rice paddies everywhere and with blue skies studded with clouds, we were happy. There were many boats out but with so many channels and so much water - it didn't feel crowded. There were a few party boats but overall it was a peaceful afternoon. I wanted to try the famous giant prawns so the captain made a stop about an hour into the cruise at a shop that sold fish. It was a great adventure buying them and fresh coconuts. The chef cooked them as part of the lunch. Once on board we were served fresh lime soda and tea. Lunch was superb - some of the best food I ate during my 8 weeks travel across India. Every dish was cooked with care and tasted amazing - not too spicy. Really appreciated the effort. There were many dishes and a lot of food. Later, there was also an afternoon tea - snacks and more tea. Again a lot of food so we asked for some of the lunch and snacks to be packed for our driver. The 5 hrs was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Weather was hot but being on the water and on the upper level under shade and in comfortable chairs made it feel cool. It is smooth sailing, no rough water or waves. The captain and chef were very professional and we appreciated their efforts in making our cruise comfortable and memorable. The Golden Peacock was a perfect boat for a perfect afternoon. Highly recommend this boat and crew. Thank you.
