Alleppey is an amazing place for houseboat rides and rates highly in my destination list, but some houseboats can spoil your entire experience and something similar happened with me recently It was a family vacation and we travelled all the way from Bangalore for houseboat trip. We had taken houseboat last year as well and had a wonderful experience. We expected something similar this time as well but read good reviews on the web about Cosy Houseboats and decided to use them. However it was an experience, due to which it might be our last houseboat ride in Alleppey Let me rate this experience on a few parameters:. 1. Houseboat quality: It was a good boat but poorly maintained. Lizards and cockroaches in the rooms were scaring kids and other family members 2. Sailing Experience: Out of 21 hours (12 noon to morning 9:00), Sailing was done for only 2 hours. 5 hours in the afternoon and. 5 hours in morning. They did not take us to lake but restricted us to small ways only. We reached late around 2:00PM instead 12:00PM, but they did not start sailing until 3:00pm and again stopped for half an hour midway before parking at 5PM. Overall sailing time 2 hrs 3. Food: Very little veg options. In dinner - only in breakfast - only Idli with Sambhar, not even chutney and no tea / coffee. Evening snacks - none, only tea in small paper cup. Reason: Boat did not even have milk to prepare tea / coffee 4. Facilities: Boat did not have any games and had TV but was not switched on for us. I wonder on the purpose of having it on board Overall it was an experience, which gives bad name to industry and deters people to take houseboats. There are other good boat operators and I have fantastic experience with them, but some folks can be classified as black spot on hospitality industry of Kerala. Please visit Allepey but be careful about Cosy Houseboat (Rated Destination and Location are for the spots boat took us during ride and not for Allepey)

We, four friends, wanted to jump out of the daily humdrum of research life, into the scintillating magical world of Kerala houseboats during Christmas 2015. Cosy came as a blessing when we were looking for options on the internet The houseboat was very close to the description, with spic and span arrangement. The natural beauty and experience was beyond what we imagined. The staff were always smiling and very helpful, with no interference or rudeness. The pick-up was quick and comfortable, the luggage was well handled and the location was superb Food was an amazing spread of taste and nutrition. Delicacies were steaming and mouthwatering. There was music to accompany. Toilets were walloped and clean, so were the upholstery, bed and towels. There was soap, mosquito repellent, nets etc. Name it and you get it. Oh! I forgot the goody bag, with some tasty dessert and chocolate bars This is my first experience in a houseboat. I don't have much to compare with. However, with my baby steps in such a tour, I would still advise tourists for Cosy A few things can be improved though. The non-vegetarian variety in the food can be improved, with different items. Not that you would miss it much, but the television could offer national channels, and movies and music (there were mostly local channels). And of course, the price. At normal times the price is very much worth the services (Rs. 11000), but during Christmas it rose to a whopping Rs. 21000. May be, Cosy can go a little easy on our pockets. That would be an icing on the cake Keep it up Cosy!
I have booked the Deluxe Room in a Sharing Houseboat for a holiday trip with my wife and a couple (Family friends) on 25th January 2016. It was a nice stay. The boathouse has a LCD TV without cable or DTH service. They have limited collection of movies and songs. It has nice sound system & player. Hall air condition was not switch on because we have booked deluxe room. It's available for the premium customer. There are 2 fans. Boat consists of 3 bed rooms with attached bathroom. Each room has good bed, AC, Fan, Cupboard, Mobile charging points & Lights. Bed room air condition is switched on after 8. 30 PM. It's too hot in the day time. You cannot stay inside the bedroom in day time. We spent most of the day time in the common hall with two fans running. We were coming from Munnar, so we reached there by 2 PM. They have given us welcome juice & chocolate at their office. We have parked the car in the office. They have the open car parking place. Office to boat is 5 minutes walkable distance. After we reached to the boat they have served the lunch. Lunch food was not that much good as we are vegetarian north Indian and we prefer Dale & small size rice. They have given us sambar, Kerala basmati rice (little bit big in size), curry, papad, pickle. Salad etc. People in the boat are nice. But people in the office were not given that they have promised over phone to us. They have told that they will give a single boat for the 2 couple. But we need to share the boat with 3 couple. But luckily we got a nice 3rd couple in our boat. Boat reached to spa & massage place around 4 pm. We negotiate full body massage from 1800/- to 1000/-. We got tea/coffee and ripe banana fry in the evening snack. The boat parked around 6. They served the dinner around 8. 00 PM. Dinner was good. They served dal, rice, Roti, veg curry, papad & salad etc. Next day morning breakfast was good (Idli, sambar, chutney, bread & butter . . My advice to the travelers to carry some snacks and movie or song in a pen drive for their entertainment. If you want anything like cake & flower bed decoration inform them early they will do it.
I went for my honeymoon on a private boat cost: Around 8000 for private boat. Reaching There: There are varied options. Direct bus (AC / Non AC) from airport to Alleppy bus stand which is near from most of the service providers offices (Finishing point). I took auto to reach cosy office (5 minutes from the point I get down) which I think waste of money. Service providers should this service. In any case we came back at same place where we get down with cosy car to go to another village where boats are parked In-spite of my prior intimation about honeymoon there was no special complimentary arrangement. Welcome kit include two small cadbury's, one pastry, two small soft drink bottles Advantages:. 1. Nature is the biggest advantage. Location is so beautiful that it can't be described but needs to be felt. 2. Boat is well maintain. 3. All people (staff) are good and know how to treat their guest Disadvantages :. Poor food quality. Need to be improved immediately. We have taken veg (perhaps non-veg would be good). Problem of insects at night. Do not eat outside Boat is running for shorter time. Out of total 21 hours of stay it will run only for 6-7 hours.
We had chose Cosy Regency Houseboat for our honeymoon tour in Alleppey. It was an excellent houseboat to stay. We had been greeted very well. They gave a warm welcome. I liked the welcome drink (Fresh Coconut water). Room was very clean. AC was working good. We had private 1BHK houseboat and did not share houseboat with other. This is the biggest plus point. Captain and cook were very nice. They serves delicious vegetarian food as per our demand. Captain took our couple photos whenever there is a good view. I was thoroughly impressed with stay at Cosy Regency houseboat. Captain was of 30+ of years rich experience and took us to some of good place to the backwater. It was one of best day of my Honeymoon tour. Kerala is known for backwater and houseboat and we had fantastic experience. Thumps up to the team.
