We 12 members from Cognizant Chennai visited Kumarakom on Feb 12, 2012. In fact we came there to attend a friend’s marriage. Since we arrived prior to 1 day, we planned to take a Houseboat at Kumarakom. After a long search and comparison of many Houseboats, we decided to opt “Amrutham Houseboat” from Amrutham Holidays. We were welcomed at their office and at 12:00 pm, check-in to the boat. Our Houseboat was a 3 Bedroom with a Deck over the top. All the Rooms were really spacious and Luxurious like a 4 star Hotel. Bathrooms were really hygienic and well maintained. Food in the Cruise was really awesome. Thanks to our chef- Raju Anna who made an awesome Kerala Fish Curry for Lunch. We covered many good parts of Kumarakom backwaters as “Bird Sanctury, Sands of Midnight, Man Made Island, ThannirMukkom Bund, Muhamma, R block of Alleppey, etc”. I must write an essay about the beauty of Kumarakom Backwaters. Also had a walk over the village and mingled with great people in Kerala. Evening view of the Lake was simply astonishing. After the halt at 6:30 PM, we engaged in many games. Since we opted Night Time A/c Option, they started A/c after Dinner at 8pm. I never had such a good sleep. When we woke up, boat was in Cruise and after the Breakfast at 9:00 AM, we started to our destination with great memories.
Once again thanks to the team who offered the most memorable time in our life..
