Myself and my wife stayed in this houseboat for one night in the first week of November. The check in started at 12 PM and cruise started at 1 PM. The cruise docked at 5 PM and again started at 8 AM next day and finished at 9 AM. We booked premium room and room size is okay. Bathroom is spacious. But rooms are maintained properly. The floor is very dusty and bathroom fittings are very old. It looks the boat was not cleaned from previous trip. You do not feel premium and furniture are old and dirty. They served lunch, evening snacks, dinner and breakfast. Food is tasty and good. Staff members are nice and cooperative. The cruise is docked between 5 PM and 8AM. The place was near some highway. You can not go around. You need to sit in the boat. Similar boats are docked side by side and you can not look outside view. It is pathetic to stay inside for whole night. This may not be suitable for children and old people. It is advisable to go day time cruise instead of day and night cruise. The charges are high but the quality of the property is not worth that price.

We had booked for two nights.You are greeted with a real broad smile nd they show you around the cabins. Then they say that the weather is sultry and if we required day time air-conditioning it would cost us another 1500. Ok we shift to the "premium" category boat. The boat leaves the jetty by 1.30. Lunch is good but nothing very original kerala about it. The boat just goes about 1 kminto the vembanad lake and stops for n hour. Then they take you to a spot asking you to buy any fish crab etc which they would cook for you. The boat comes to a stop at 5.30 at a spot where they tell you that we are free to spend the evening wherever and be back for dinner by 7.45. They dont have any transport arranged either to take us shopping or to the beach or any other spot. A north indian couple had trouble getting back as no proper directions were given to them. Dinner was the same stuff. Though the food was good we would have loved some local stuff. Come morning again idli greets us. Would have loved some puttu. Rhe same routine for the second day too. The meni also remained the same. Waste of a day. Courteous and helpful staff. But the management can do a little more to be tourist friendly.

It's really a once in a lifetime experience to be on such a well organized houseboat. Everything was awesome from room to hospitality to food. Cruising through backwater was the best. They served delicious vegetarian and non- vegetarian food

We knew house boats are must try in Allepey back waters. However we dint like the idea of staying all the duration of stay in houseboat as the boat doesn’t move the whole day . Finally we decided to book a day stay in houseboat and I called up Tharangini looking at the top reviews. They made us feel very comfortable right from the booking too as they suggested to book online to avail the best price which otherwise we 2k more. Boat is very well maintained. Food was ok. Vegetarian options could have been bettter. Snacks in the evening were not that great but dinner was good. Clean rooms and toilets

The stay in Tharangini houseboat was extremely pleasant. We stayed in the room which allowed for full AC which was a blessing. The food was great. The view was also mesmerising. The boat is not allowed to move at night, so be prepared for that, but the afternoon through the backwaters is enjoyable. The rooms are quite clean. If you go with an open mind, then you are sure to have a great time.

This is the second time I chose tharangini houseboats for the backwaters stay. The cost was on the higher side. Bit expensive, food was not up to the mark. It was very good the last time we visited. Not really a great value for money. Staff were good though. Overall an average experience.
