"Boat house"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 24, 2017
The stay was good and had a good company in the boat house the back waters are really beautiful. However I felt cheated by booking the tickets through make my trip as there are no standards when it comes to house boat booking you don't get to know till the end whether you will be given the house boat on a sharing basis or you would be alone. It all depends on the number of people turning up and basis that they arrange a two room sharing or if it's going to be 4 bed room sharing. I booked 2 months before for 12. 2k however the family who shared the boat with me booked it a day before for 9k and even the locals suggested to book the boat house through some known locals to get it cheaper. For vegetarians you have to tell them in advance to arrange for Paneer if not it's more inclined towards non vegetarians.

"Soak into the nature"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 18, 2017
Allappuzha (Alleppey) is known for backwaters. One can enjoy the backwaters taking a house boat. All kind of houseboat is available there like premium, Luxury, regular and all.
Houseboats will have all the amenities inside it. It will have 2 or 3 rooms in that, a chef for cooking and all your needs will be taken care of.
One can do fishing, collect clams from the water or you can just sit and enjoy the sun going down and all. They will take you for a round once you have checked in and will dock by 5:30 pm.
Chef will cook some excellent food which will be mostly Kerala dishes and even you can have a fresh catch of the day. They will stop the boat in the market and you can buy fresh catch from there.
And in the morning one can enjoy the sunrise and do some yoga and relaxation too.

"Venice of the East - Alleppey"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 18, 2017
Alleppey or Alappuzha is known as Venice of the east for a solid good reason. The backwaters here and the houses surrounding it with a laidback atmosphere is apt for a wonderful relaxed sun soaking holiday. The wind just flows right here not too much and brings in the whole atmosphere to the right ambience.

You can do fishing here at the backwaters and just enjoy the sunrise sunset and have great food. Fresh pearl spot, jumbo prawns, crabs and lobsters are the best catches of the day and you should get it while here. Try the Toddy here but in the evening because the extract will be fresh and you can have a relaxed sleep at night. Wake up early and the sunrise will give one the best ambience for meditation and yoga.

Live here for few days and get completely disconnected from the concrete jungles.

Love getting tan then be here, because at sunny day the Alleppey Beach is hottest, though beach is really clean and neat with white sand, you got to go tan, I would suggest you to get a your beach luggage if your gonna hit this beach. Must come only during sunset and sunrise. And get imp things if you have kids.
