Glad we prebooked Deluxe AC 2 bedroom Pournami Houseboat ,online. Right from check-in-and check-out, it was comfortable. We were received at the car parking lot few steps away from the houseboat. At the houseboat we were welcomed by the Captain and 2 cooks cum helper. A welcome drink of lemonade and fresh fruits basket quenched our thirst as it was pretty humid. For the next couple of hours we sailed on the serene lake surrounded by huge coconut trees and villages. The lunch, the tea , the pakoras, the dinner and South Indian Breakfast really yummy. Great Cooks !!!!!! . The captain very informative and jovial nature. TV and music system entertained us. We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary at the Houseboat . Both the ACs very effective. While leaving we were thinking when to come next. Congrats and Best Wishes to Pournami Houseboats(SpringBay Holidays P Ltd) for making our Trip a memorable one. Rajeev Mittal & Family
Very neat, clean and spacious houseboat, exactly as per pictures shared before booking.
Good food and very co-operative staff..enjoyed with family.
Thanks ..Pournami Houseboat
It's really amazing. Very good and polite staff. Good Meals. Very clean rooms.
will definitely book again. Also the backwater ride was good.
Like everybody else, was searching the net to book my house boat trip for 6 adults and settled on Pournami Houseboats for two reasons.
1 Their rates were excellent, very competitive and the photos of the house boat were inviting.
2 Whilst in the process of making the booking I spoke with Parvathy who is an excellent ambassador for Pournami boats and she very kingly and patiently clarified all my questions.
On arrival, at Alappuza Nehru finishing point we were greeted very warmly and the crew were excellent. The accomodation was great and the food was top notch.
It is our opinion that if Pournami were to maintain the standard and competitive rates, they will continue to attract more tourists and business. Some operators appear to be extremely over priced and therefore Pournami will always have the advantage over those operators.
Thank you to the Pournami Team for a great time.
If we do come back for another holiday, I am sure we will, rest assured, we will contact you for a booking.
“Awesome experience Friendly and cooperative crew, mindblowing food”
We had an awesome experience during our stay in pournami houseboat as a part of our family get together in alappuzha. Right from booking, the staff was very friendly and cooperative.
The houseboat was neat, tidy, clean and nicely maintained. The houseboat had sufficcient grille/glass protection so that we were feeling safe . The houseboat staff too was very caring and friendly.
The best part was the mindblowing food that we had during the trip. Special mention to the cook and the kitchen crew for serving us such a wonderful food, thus making our trip memorable.
We booked 2 houseboats for 6 rooms (4+2) for our trip. Initially we paid the booking amount as per their sales team and we were suggested to pay the rest of the amount on arrival. When we reached there, we gave the rest of the payment to their manager and then he said we need to pay some more money as per their record(plz note the difference in amount was just Rs. 1500.00). We showed him our email discussions with sales team and requested him to start our trip (as we were already late by 3.30 hrs from our check-in time). He talked to the upper management but management did not allow our trip and this whole discussion took around 45 minutes of our trip. This was completely unexpected for us as the amount was very less and we were already late. Food quality was ok. The staff on boat was very friendly.
They have given an excellent service, I must say that. All the representative was too good and they have assisted us in each & every way. Mr.Vijayan is an excellent person & told us everything about the lake and the civilization which has been build up there.
The Tour manager Mr. Vinod was a very helpful person and helped us a lot in a matter when we left our laptop bag at Aleppy and already moved in to the Kovalam. He collected our bag from the Police Station (the bag was submitted to the nearest police station by some travelers) and sent that back to us at Kovalam by hiring a Cab.
Thanks a lot for that great experience.
