“Awesome boat house experience”

We had an amazing stay at Aqua Jumbo boat house. The crew members were very professional and friendly. The food served on the boat house was delicious. Overall it was a wonderful, relaxing experience. One need to watch out for mosquitoes and insects during night time. The trip can be more entertaining by adding few activities (especially with kids on board) such as fishing, swiming etc

This was my 2nd trip on a houseboat on the Vembanad lake (the last one was 8 years back) ... and the place / the views are still as beautiful as they were ... This is a trip that is a must do for any traveller to Kerala ...

Found Aqua Jumbo through a random web search and inspite of some worries about how it would actually turn out to be ... I went ahead ... every email and phone call with Akhil regarding my booking was answered promptly ... my confidence rose when i saw the actual photos of the houseboat ... And when i finally walked into the houseboat, I was thrilled ...

Its big ... clean ... well laid out ... even the way the seating/ viewing area is arranged behind the captain is so nice ...

I had checked in late (around 1 45 pm instead of 12) and i regret "losing" those minutes that i could have spent more on the houseboat ...

the journey was lovely ... the place is unbelievably scenic ... my son was getting excited everytime we "overtook" another houseboat ...

the food they served was very tasty ... very authentic local cuisine ... for dinner we actually bought large prawns from store and the cook cooked it to perfection ... even the breakfast was really nice ... everything from the taste, quantity to the presentation of the food was awesome ...

Of the crew that was with us ... Manish was a really helpful guy ...

It does tend to get a little boring once the houseboat anchors after 6 pm ... but even for that Aqua Castle had a tv with dvd player where i could play movies from a usb drive for my son ...

my son wanted to do fishing and Manish managed to get us a makeshift fishing rod with atta as bait as well which was a really nice gesture on their part ... (though we didnt catch any fish sadly) ...

Overall I would definitely love to go back here since it was such a lovely experience and will recommend it everyone !!!

Boat house experience was memorable one. Crew members were very friendly. NV Food served in the boat house were good but veg. quality was not good. The owner Mr.Vargheese was very helpful for arranging cab facility (from PIck up from Chertali, onward journey to Thekkady and drop at Kochi Airport).
