Kerala Houseboats

Kerala houseboats offer something incredibly different to all other honeymoon options. What could be a more enchanting experience than drifting through the serene and surreal backwaters of Kerala, eating freshly caught shrimps and sipping milk straight from the coconut?

I found myself aboard one of these mighty crafts during my first trip to India along with six other people. I think that it is safe to say that we all found a little bit heaven at some point during those three days we were floating in the backwaters of God's great garden.

Why a houseboat?

Kerala Houseboat, Houseboat

The feeling of calmness and tranquillity that descends all around you as you skim past water lillies, rustic villages, markets and churches. The peace that is found watching the sunset over lush rice paddies surrounded by palm trees and goats. The various flocks of birds that float past and the tiny boats bursting at the seams full of kids on their way to school.
