Food was good, specially the fresh fish, the boat was very nice with good rooms and beautiful architecture. Staff was very friendly with all support possible. the point where boats stop in night is bit smelly because of stagnant water but the cruising in evening was worth.

I visited in December(around Christmas holidays) and it was very rush and little costly. August, again might not be that much. The front desk person i.e. Lekha is very good in providing guidance. Cost in peak season will be high and non-peak should be reasonable. Please inquire over phone and then plan. Let me know for more details.

The boat is being docked in any of the place owned or leased by the operating company. These places is located along side of the different canals and rivers. It may be a village, road side or a paddy field area. Therefore, activities available after 0530 is depend upon the area where the boat is docked. Walking along side of the village, fishing from the boat itself are the main attraction except what in house facilities available in the boat. Some companies started providing swimming pool, spa etc. We do not recommend walking through the village or buses after the sun set.
