“One of the best”
Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We truly appreciate this genesis house boat and it gave us a beautiful view of Alleppy back water . Staff on board were friendly, helpful and always cheerful. the bat was parked at night in an extremely beautiful spot at the bank of a fresh water river in a tiny clean village. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kerala Perth. This whole experience made my trip more enjoyable

“Genesis houseboat... I will be back !!!”
Reviewed 26 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed in Genesis Kerala house boat for one day n one night & it was truly an amazing experience.we had an absolutely fantastic stay .the management is very good.his instructions were clear.
The Genesis houseboat itself was beautiful n clean ..the chef cooked delicious meals.the real highlight was the dinner whereby we ate fantastically spiced fresh water prawns n a crab roast .it was a really good experience of the journey in water ,sitting in a boat n enjoying the nature surroundings.. The houseboat was slowly floating over the scenic backwater that takes u to the world of wonderment ,passing through the natural beauty.. The most thing we liked about it is the peace n calmness of the place. The houseboat was very beautiful. It was very neat n well maintained . they had given us the best services.. They were very polite,helpful n friendly. N they made sure we were comfortable. This was our first experience n it was awesome.
I would definitely recommend Genesis houseboat if u need the calm n quiet experience of Kerala houseboat living.our hosts provided the best houseboat services.we're certainly looking to come again.thank you the whole team of Genesis Kerala houseboat ,.for such a wonderful experience.
