The earlier traditional houseboats were called Kettuvallam which were long boats constructed by tying planks of wood together. The construction of these houseboats required no usage of nails; jack wood planks were tied together with ropes and were used for the transportation of food items. The traditional houseboat went under a significant transformation and was renovated with high class comforts and amenities converting it into an innovative idea of holidaying.
The improvised version of these houseboats is redefined to meet a great concept of cruising. These houseboats are now available with comfortable furnishings and open lounge, bedrooms, modern baths, a kitchenette all crafted in an extremely eco friendly manner. The crew on the boat includes oarsmen, captain and a cook who are appointed to cater to all the needs of the couple on a honeymoon trip to Kerala backwaters.
