“Was a Fabulous experience!”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was my first trip to Kumarakom and house boating experience.

Had a great time in the houseboat. Nature was at its best. The food was amazingly superb (with live fish cached in front of you). The boat was well maintained and hygiene. The gesture and hospitality of the crew were good.

Suggestion: Will be more fun if you go with a bigger group. like at least 2-3 families.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I must say it was hassle free travel, and that is all because of Mukul arrangement.
The staffs were really nice especially Asif who gave us good ride and was co-operative.

I took Munnar and Houseboat package which came in budget for me and covered most of the visiting places.

Thanks

“Wonderful Houseboat”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

When I was searching for Kumarakom Houseboat, I found Mukul of Kumarakom Houseboat Holidays who is gentleman in nature and really helpful.
If you want to experience Kumarakom Houseboat, contact Kumarakom Houseboat Holidays without any hesitation and Mukul will help you. Even I have booked my Car for my 6 days Kerala trip from Mukul. He has provided a good car with cheaper rate. Ask if Sameer is available for car driving, he is an excellent person and knows each and every fact of Kerala.
You can contact Mukul at 9847608883. Cruising through back water and Vembanad lake will take you to your dream.
I would specially mention the arrangements inside the house boat which was too good. Try local black pomfret fish which is really exclusive if you are a non veg.
The boat staff Anil is really nice person.
Your cruise will start at 12:30 PM and boat will be parked at a village side after 5PM. Next day morning again it will cruise and at 9:30am your trip will come to an end.
I bought coconut oil from a local mill at kumarakom.
