Lovely experience & delicious food

Posted 20 Nov, 2015

I never expected the experience would be so unforgettable. In fact we never wanted to go back. Cruising in a houseboat in Alleppey backwaters in itself is a great experience. I strongly believe JCT made it even better. Talking about the house boat, staff were really good which is imperative as they are your only companions amidst the waters. Food they served was delicious, it was a mix of North Indian and authentic Kerala food. Service was excellent. Rooms can be improved a bit. Overall, it was an experience worth remembering for your lifetime.

Amazing experience at JCT HouseBoat

Posted 29 Dec, 2015

This was a totally new experience for both of us we booked it through makemytrip. I must say this houseboat is a excellent, five star hotel type experience in a moving boat. There was a chef who cooks delicious food such as traditional Kerala food, don't try Kerala food anywhere else you wont get it as nice. Its so peaceful you can see the clean backwater you must add Alleppey in your package if your planning to go Kerala.
