Houseboats, or kettuvallam as they are locally called, are a great way to explore the famed backwaters of Kerala. These large and spacious boats once served the purpose of transporting spices and grains across the backwaters.
Houseboats in Kerala today have become an integral part of experiencing the long channels, lush paddy fields and isolated islands of Vembanad Lake in comfort and luxury. Explore the serenity and green carpet of the backwaters in luxury with Punnamada’s cruises that take you to corners of the lake with visits to isolated churches, small villages, coir making units, picturesque neighbourhoods of Alleppey and Kumarakom and the lighthouse on Munroe Island. Watch the romance of the lake unfold as you steer deeper into the god’s own country.
The houseboats in Kerala built with a traditional Kerala architecture come fully equipped with comfortable bedrooms, an open deck and dining area at the bow.
