“Excellent experience”
Reviewed 23 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

So I basically spoke to Maneesh a few days prior to travelling to Kerala and informed him of my requirement i.e. a house boat on 14th August for a few hours, primarily for the purpose of proposing to my girlfriend. I was talking to other house boat owners also giving cheaper options but Maneesh was prompt in his response and revert and also gave several options of payment, which was not the case with the other house boat owners.

Move to the actual day of the house boat experience, I handed over the flowers for decoration and asked them to simply scatter them on the upper deck because i did not have the time to set it up properly. Subsequently, I arrived at the house boat along with my girlfriend. The house boat was finely readied with coconut water as a welcome drink followed by purchasing some fresh jumbo prawns from the coast... The crew was amazing.. they let us play our own music, chill and relax... this was followed by a huge spread of food which included fried chicken, fried pearl fish, fried jumbo prawns, potato curry, cauliflower curry, sambhar, pappadoms etc... It was all very nice... then the time of proposal came which was to happen on the upper deck and even i was taken aback with the decoration that they had done.. was beyond what my own imagination was... even my girlfriend (now fiance) loved it...

So in conclusion i would definitely recommend Maneesh and his team...

“Too Good for a Day Time..!!”
Reviewed 11 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our travel agent had arranged this House Boat for us...it was an awesome experience overall. The cool weather offers a romantic climate just for two of us. Both the staff were courteous and friendly. Their famous Fish fry is a must try one. We were served Tender coconut and Traditional Lunch with Tea Snacks which is just awesome.

“Backwater memories..”
Reviewed 10 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We rent a Houseboat from Kumarakom on July 15 for a Day outing for my family of 6. I really would love to express my sincere thanks to the people who arranged this trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. Kerala backwater is so wonderful and calm. This travel became the highlight of our Kerala trip.

House Boat is an amazing invention in backwaters. This travel was one of the highlight in our kerala tour. We boarded from Lagoon resort and dropped off at the same location. Boat was neat and staff were so good.

“Family trip on amrutham houseboat”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is the second time i am travelling with amrutham houseboat. The first time was a night stay and the second time was a day cruise. Both the cruises were beautiful. Kerala itself is beautiful and the cruise ride in the waters of kerala is joyful. The crew were hospitable and the food was very good. We had docked at a place. On one side was the lake and the other side were paddy fields. We went through the bird sanctuary. We could hear the birds chirping but to our disappointment we could not see any boats. Amrutham to our pleasant surprise had given a superior boat with an upper deck even though we had booked deluxe. We spent most of the morning on the deck enjoying the vast expanse of the lake and solitude. The room Nd bathroom were neat and tidy. Overall i think it is value for money.
