We booked Pournami Houseboat for our honeymoon. We were the only couple on the boat. While boarding the boat they served us with fresh coconut water.
Once we started off with the our adventure the staff kept on feeding us with some food or other.
Our chef made some one of the best chicken that i have ee stafver had. it was lovely.
The view from the boat is not that extra ordinary though. overall it all about the experience that you enjoy in the houseboat.
We docked the boat around 6 pm. Before that we stopped at a village for some massage and it was not very affectful therefore it can be avoided.
The staff is very helpful and polite.
Booked through Booking and got a fair deal and same was confirmed by the property reservation office member Parvathy over phone and took complete details of No of members and food requirements and made sure all were serviced properly.
Houseboat staffs was very friendly and explained the place, living style, fooding habits, tourist spots. Breakfast , Lunch and Dinner all were outstanding,tasty and clean.
Only suggestion is during stoppage time some entertainment should be planned apart from TV. Example Fishing, live Kerala authentic dances, etc to have new experiences in boat.
Thanks Pournami houseboat team to make the trip a memorable one.... :)
We booked the house boat online and got a fair deal for the 3 bedroom house boat. I boarded the boat with my family and enjoyed a lot the staffs were co-operative in there sence but I expected little more smile and positive attidute from them but that doesn't hampered their service in any aspect. We did fishing and caught sizable amount of fish which we cooked and was delicious. Ambiance of the entire houseboat was good. My 1year old baby boy enjoyed the tour a lot.
Recommend for others to book the house boat for a day and enjoy the moment of life.
My boyfriend and I had the ideal stay on this boat! It was clean and had all the amenities we needed/wanted. The crew was so sweet and thought of everything! They went the extra mile to ensure that we were happy and taken care of, from an extra stop for a massage, to fresh squeezed pineapple juice in the mornings, to an extra stop to grab wine for our romantic dinner!
I would absolutely visit again. Thanks!
Well built houseboat with neat and clean rooms and the sitting area. I hired a 2 bed boat. The staff is very friendly. They take care to receive you from parking area to the boat. The in-house staff are very good and help you with any queries you have. They will help you arrange the local row boat, local sea food purchase if you need.
The food served is excellent. I would recommend this rental to people.
A few minor maintenance issues, that was communicated to to them in their feedback, but that does not in anyway lessen your excellent stay overnight.
I along with my relative stayed in a two BR Pournami House boat on 25.01.17. We were received from taxi stand. Staff helped to transfer luggage. The house boat was very good, spacious and decorative and comfortable sitting arrangement. Bed room was very nice with clean attached bath. Received with welcome drinks. There were two staff in the boat who r very well behaved & also can speak Hindi & Eng. Food inform of Lunch, Dinner & Snacks were very tasty , prepared using sunflower oil. Mineral water provided for drinking. Boat journey was very comfortable & pleasurable. Only our concern was the high exorbitant price charged by the porn sellers who sell porn fish @ Rs.1800 per KG. The boat anchored for night at a remote, lonely place. Alternate habitat area may be chosen to spend evening. The HB was well protected from mosquitoes. Next morning breakfast served was hot & delicious. All safety appliances are provided in the boat.. Back to Nehru Finishing point in time. Thanks Pournami & Madam Paravati & their staff for making our stay memorable.
I stayed here on 8-FEB-2017. Booked a 3 bedroom houseboat for night stay. It was an amazing experience with Pournami right from booking, coordination, arranging cab for drop... The entire crew on board was very smiling, welcoming & helpful throughout the stay. We requested banana leaf for the food to be served during our lunch and they immediately fetched us a few from a nearby tree. Food was very delicious (both lunch & dinner). The only disappointing thing was presence of mosquitoes inside the room even at night though the mosquito nets were lowered soon before it was dark by 6 PM. I would suggest the management to work on this to attract more tourists. They can at least provide us with mosquito coils or mats or machines to keep the mosquitoes away.
Otherwise the houseboat was a totally fun-filled amazing experience.
