Kettuvalloms or Houseboats are country boats that were used in Kerala in the early days for the transport of goods, particularly rice, from the isolated interior villages of Kerala to the towns through the waterways that criss-cross the state. Now these rice boats are converted into houseboats, retaining the old world charm of authentic Kerala but modified to give you modern-day comfort with tasteful furnishings. A houseboat is about 69 feet in length and has a width of around 13 feet in the middle making them spacious. There are fully furnished single bedroom,two bedroom and three bedroom houseboats. You will cruise down centuries-old backwaters flanked by picture-book towns and ancient trading ports. The scenic backwater of the Vembanad lake and the lush, green paddy fields of Kuttanad, the 'rice bowl of Kerala' slip by. You can experience village life first-hand by alighting at one of the quaint little villages en-route. Exotic, traditional cuisines are prepared and served by the expert chef on board.
