Kumarakom to Cochin houseboat.

Kumarakom to Cochin houseboat.

Hello All

We are in Kerala for about 4 days, and moving from

Cochin -> Munnar ->Thekkady (overnight + 1/2day) -> Alleppey (or Kumarakom) -> Cochin.

Does anybody know we can get a overnight boathouse from Alleppey or Kumarakom to Cochin?

We are travelling with a 4-year old so a premium boathouse would be better suited. Any recommendations?

there is no house boat in that route.you may either travel in speed boat (cost will be very high), travel in ferry during day time ( least comfort & less expensive)

best option is to travel by cab which is about 2 hr journey to cochin

Listen you have very less time so best is avoid stay at cochin

Munnar 2 nights Crown Plaza /Le Meridien

Thekkady 1 night Club Mahindra / Spice Tree

Alleppey 1 night - Premium House Boat

try some agents they can give you better deals than booking online or calling Hotel.... need any help on this you can inbox me.....

Thanks for the responses. I may have to rethink the plan a bit more. If I find something I will update the post.

There are no houseboats in the route and the route it self is not attractive. (I have traveled in the route).
