We took a 2 night cruise and a backwater tour that started from Alappuzha and went towards Nedumudi and back to Alappuzha. We halted in a village near Nedumudi in the first night and somewhere closer to Alappuzha the second night. Short cruises starting from Alappuzha are only showing a teasing glimpse of the backwaters and there are a lot... More

We took a shikara ride in the afternoon from Ramada Allepey. The boat was very well maintained. In the 2 hrs ride, we experienced the beautiful punnamada lake, delightful view of coconut trees alongside the lake, simple villages on the bank, fishermen on work, a walk to the paddy field. We also took an evening motor cruise which took us... More

Solo traveller and was determined to see Aleppey by houseboat. It seemed OK to begin, but the boat, bathroom, tables etc dirty and dilapidated. I didn't realise there'd be so many boats chugging up and down - we moored for lunch between two, one was a stag party with karaoke,mind chucking bottles into the river. I went for a walk... More

there is so much hype about boat house and back water cruise and all pics are really beautiful on canvas. the realty is there is so much of water hyacinth in the back waters which needs immediate attention and cleaning before it invades entire backwaters. this has resulted in taking away the otherwise beautiful place.

I and my partner have experienced a memorable one night cruise in Alleppey. The staff, chef and the captain, welcome us with fresh coconut juice and took care of our luggage from the taxi to the room on board. The room was very comfortable with A/C and e suite bathroom with shower. They have taken us all around the beautiful... More

This is the lowest grade ordinary houseboat where Diesel smells inside the room. When we started AC in the night, it's gas started leaked out and the lights are gone for 30 minutes. We moved out of room & finally come to know that AC cannot be started. Lots of mosquitoes and Lizard moves on Ceiling when we go to... More

It was very nice and pleasant. The ride was was very nice. But then in the evening once the boats all line up in a line in the same place all night, nothing really much to do but watch TV. Excellent food cooked on the boat itself.
