Houseboats for rent

Hire a houseboat and explore the tranquil and serene backwaters of Kerala and feel rejuvenated and relaxed. I along with my friends rent a houseboat last month and experienced the same. It was an unforgettable event in our life. Saying a transitory adieu to all vows and worries of daily life, riding through the backwaters elevates to the realm of ecstasy. There are different tour operators in Kerala offering numerous houseboat tour packages.

Different types of houseboats are available for rent.  The best place for hiring houseboats is Alleppey. There are numerous houseboats in Alleppey for rent.  Places like Kumarakom, Kuttanad are adjacent to Alleppey where there are numerous houseboats to rent. There are number of lakes and canals in Alleppey to ride across. Rent a houseboat and ride through the backwaters of Alleppey enjoy the picturesque beauty.


The houseboat we rent provides all the modern facilities and amenities. The houseboat rentals are available for day cruising, or you can have a long week vacation in a rented houseboat. But we rent the houseboat for seven days to ride across the backwaters experiencing new things in life. Sleeping in the middle of the water in a rented houseboat is the most exciting experience for us. If you are choosing day cruising, the ride starts in the morning 11.30 am and returns by 5:30 pm.

In most of the houseboat rentals, there numerous houseboats with classifications like Luxury, Premium, Standard and Deluxe. Starting from an affordable rate of 3,000 it extends up to 40,000 per night. The facilities of a rented houseboat include bedroom with AC, dining room, living room a modern kitchen and toilets. The best time to visit the backwaters in Kerala is in between November and January.
