“Loved it!”
Reviewed 25 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had a 2 night trip with Kumarakom Houseboat Holidays and they can’t be faulted in any way. The boat had everything we needed and it was a once in a lifetime experience seeing ‘river village life’ first hand. The boat was air conditioned and comfortable, the food the chef cooked was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the crew. They always had smiles on their faces and were happy to chat to us. The logistics of the pick up and drop off were seamlessly organised and went exactly to plan and we didn’t have to touch our luggage from start to finish, it was all done for us. The initial booking procedure was very easy with prompt understandable communication. I found the company by their good TripAdvisor reviews and was a little nervous about it but it was an excellent choice and I recommend them.

“Great way to spend a day on the Vembanad lake!”
Reviewed 6 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We got the "Premium" houseboat from Kumarakom for one night. It was an amazing experience all over! The views, food and service were all par excellence.
They dock for lunch and allow you to walk into the nearby rice fields for a small tour.
They also dock on the shores of a village from 6 pm to 8 am, where they serve you dinner and you can go walk around in the village. You can't see the sunset/sunrise from the boat, but a small walk in the village will take you to some amazing viewpoints.

“One of a kind experience.”
Reviewed 14 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Great stay and service on boat. Food was delicious and this experience is a great way to enjoy Kumarakom.

*Would have given 5 stars, but checking into house boat was just slightly chaotic. Please note that this wasn't characteristic of the rest of the trip.

“Slice of paradise”
Reviewed 5 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The whole experience of the houseboat was fabulous - starting from booking the accommodation to getting off the boat.

The amenities in the houseboat are top-class - air-conditioned rooms and common areas, beautiful deck on the top floor and bluetooth speakers and karaoke machine.

The food on the boat is excellent - local Kerala food and north indian food options were available.

Staff is very helpful and responsive - making snacks when we requested, serving coconut water when we got on the boat, helping us load and unload.

The boat ride was beautiful - they took the typical route from Kumarakom to the backwaters. The whole ride was lined with palm trees and backwater foliage.

Thank you for making our stay pleasant and enjoyable.

We had a wonderful and memorable experience with Kumarakom houseboat holidays. After reading many positive reviews about Kumarakom houseboat holidays on TripAdvisor we book our holiday through online. They arranged a nice 2 bedroom houseboat with Driver, helper and a Chef. We enjoyed the food. We bought some seafood from the fish market and the Chef help us to cook the delicious food. The boathouse staff took really good care of us through out the stay. We were taken care of each and every need. If we have any plans to book houseboat in near future we will definitely choose Kumarakom houseboat holiday.
