The day-time house boat trip was one of the most pleasant experiences I had driving around Kerala. We had booked lake-view well in advance and asked them to pick us up from the Ramada Allapey Jetty at 12 noon. They were right on time. The hotel staff probably gave them a little

We thank you for reviewing us about our service in Trip advisor. Sorry to learn that you will not stay in the boat overnight next time. I have personally checked the backside leakage in the bathroom and we could not find anything. Also about the bad smell which may be coming from outside when the bathroom window was open. We are keeping the quality of the boat as perfect as we can.

I visited in December(around Christmas holidays) and it was very rush and little costly. August, again might not be that much. The front desk person i.e. Lekha is very good in providing guidance. Cost in peak season will be high and non-peak should be reasonable. Please inquire over phone and then plan. Let me know for more details.

The boat is being docked in any of the place owned or leased by the operating company. These places is located along side of the different canals and rivers. It may be a village, road side or a paddy field area. Therefore, activities available after 0530 is depend upon the area where the boat is docked. Walking along side of the village, fishing from the boat itself are the main attraction except what in house facilities available in the boat. Some companies started providing swimming pool, spa etc. We do not recommend walking through the village or buses after the sun set.
