Kumarakom - Alleppey - Houseboat
After a leisurely breakfast at Kumarakom, you will spend some free time at the resort, and by noontime, you will get aboard a backwater houseboat, locally known as kettuvallam, to go on an unforgettable overnight cruise to Alleppey through the splendid backwaters of Kerala, which include lunch, snacks, evening tea and dinner, all of which served on board.
Basically, you will cruise until sunset when the boat anchors for the night at Alleppey.
Originally used to carry rice in the past, these uniquely designed backwater houseboats have become among the most important attractions in Kerala, offering a fascinating way to enjoy the beautiful backwaters in this part of India, with their design and languid grace adding to the beauty of your cruise.
They have fully equipped kitchens with experienced cooks to prepare authentic Kerala cuisine for you and even give you some fabulous cooking tips.
They also have private balconies with chairs for comfortable sightseeing and well-furnished, air-conditioned rooms with attached bathrooms to ensure a good night sleep throughout the night on board.
During the cruise, you will see the significance of the backwaters to the state, linking remote islands and villages to the mainland, and will have a uniquely wonderful experience of cruising that you will not find anywhere else in the world.
