Kerala Houseboats in India

Kettuvallam Houseboats If water is the other name of life, and backwaters that of serenity, Kerala is the right place to feel it. Kettuvallam houseboats are the perfect escape from the world of cares, and entry into the Nirvana. There are places where you will feel that the time has stopped, and yet you'll feel the vibrancy of the still and languid waters. The backwaters are more adorned by the green luxuries of Mother Nature who has bestowed all her blessing to this place known as Kerala. These boats were earlier used to carry goods but soon the people felt the profitability and the revenue that the boats could generate and shifted to the tourism business rather than just transportation of goods.

There are added advantages, you don't need to go out to look for the places, sit at you boat and the whole house (boat) will move. If you want one more, I can tell you one that I feel is more relevant these days. That is you don't need to care about earthquakes, I mean, about the mild ones. And that is a price enough to respect the boats.

The Houseboats
The boats are themselves an example of beauty, and that's only the beginning. The Boats are made by the people themselves and these floaters represent a splendid example of artwork and beauty on waters. The wood that is used is known as Anhili which are carved out into the beautiful boats to last longer and be strong enough to survive the water for long times.

The rooms are created with great architecture and special attention to give these boats a perfect finish and the insiders a charm that would live with them for life.

The places :
Houseboat Alappuzha is the best place to spot these slow moving giant beauties, they have been transformed fully into luxury accommodations that give them an extra weightage, due to the factor of water possibly. Alleppey is only 50 miles in the south of Cochin. And there are, well, more than 100 boats to entice you.

Near the famous destination Kottayam, this is another place to look for, especially when the concentration is on the boats and their tranquility. There is also a bird sanctuary to add to the occasion.

There are some splendid houseboats south of Kovalam in Trivandrum. They are easiest to reach in Kerala and represent an age-old heritage with splendid attraction and pride.

The impact
The importance and the luxury of Houseboats could be easily understood from the fact that houseboats are a thriving industry in Kerala Today, there are some full fledged heritage resorts that can compete with the best five star hotels. The state tourism department has also given immense stress to enhance the reach and the facilities that have resulted in a synergy, and is really helpful for sides, the tourists and the humble locals.
