We booked an overnight stay on a premium houseboat with Prasanthy houseboat. We had a great relaxing time watching the scenery go by, bird watching, village life and a thunderstorm and lightning show. They pulled over and we bought a duck from a duck farm for the chef to cook for that night's dinner as we fancied something different.The food was excellent and very tasty. The boat itself was clean and comfortable, the bathroom is looking a little worn though and the hot water wasn't working ( a common occurence in India we've found ) which didn't bother us too much. may be next time we'll book the luxury boat.
Our stop overnight was in an area away from other houseboat and very private. The only thing is I wished I'd carried some mozzie repellent as they visited in the evening.More
