“Must do activity in Kerala”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We are a family of 3 and this was our first time experience doing the backwaters cruise in Kerala. It was a fantastic experience overall. Maneesh and Jeevan from Amrutham houseboats provided very good customer service throughout (right from my phone booking from Bangalore, to completing the boat ride). We did the day-cruise for 5 hrs in a boat with upper deck with a crew of two (driver and cook). The boat sailed in and around Kumarokam covering some smaller canals and the vast Vembanad lake. The boat was very clean including the beds, bathrooms, and pillows. The crew was professional (they didn't 'overtalk' but answered any questions we had). And finally, the views from the boat were spectacular ... a never before experience. Glad to see such a vast fresh water body with no visible signs of pollution. We also had the boat stop at a paddy field where we took plenty of pictures. The only minor downside was that we didn't enjoy the food (being vegetarians, we felt the taste was lacking a bit. Plus it was very oily). However, we could easily overlook that while enjoying all other aspects of this ride.

“Had lot of expectation”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Going by the previous reviews, we booked a 3 rooms houseboat and we had lot of expectation while booking this houseboat. We reached there after 1pm and it took some time for us to locate the boat itself as there was nobody available even after calling Mr Jeevan 3 times. To our surprise some other people were still inside the boat even though check-in time is 11am!!! They refused the change the bed sheet until we shouted at them.
After the boat started, they stopped at some nearby place and served lunch. Very ordinary lunch. After the lunch they took us to fish market. it was just a small shop on the other side and the price was exorbitant. Crab was Rs 800 per kg, lobster was 1700 per kg!!! Its a robbery in day light.
After the fish market visit, boat started again and they took us other side of the Vembanad lake and stopped the boat in the evening. They covered around 3-4 km at max. They didnt cover any places as they claim on their website. Rooms were not very clean as well. They provided 2 small bed joined together and no provision for extra bed for kids.
Not worth the money they charge per day. Instead you can stay in a very good hotel near Kumarakom and go for 2-3 hours boat ride.

“Pleasant and enjoyable day trip”
Reviewed 25 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We truly enjoyed the day-trip on the houseboat. Maneesh came to see us in person at the start of the trip to ensure that everything is in place. The boat is maintained absolutely clean. Staff are well trained, helpful and very friendly. Food (lunch and evening snacks/tea) was good both veg and non-veg. When we come to Kumarakom again, I will make it a point to use their services again!.

person found this review helpful

Guys look no further. Booked an Amrutham Houseboat - Premium boat with 2 rooms, via Mr Maneesh and was totally satisfied with the quality, cleanliness, and courteous crew onboard the boat. Communication was smooth, I had no problem at all, On arrival, Mr. Maneesh himself was present to greet me, showed us the beautiful boat. The boat was neat and clean, with ready kitchen, perfect beds. Was Greeted with coconut water too. Food choice was amazing, we opted for Kerala food, it was delicious plus they allow you to go to the fish market, purchase whatever you like and they shall prepare it for you. Amazing Music system with bluetooth connectivity. onboard. An assuring experience which gave me and my family a memorable experience. and YES i will recommend this to a friend.

“Definitely worth it!”
Reviewed 23 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

It was a serene and relaxing experience amidst Kumarakom and Vembanad lake. They serve you some scrumptious yummy authentic Kerala Cuisine, which you can customize or request for other options. The houseboat has excellent amenities. The whole package is a little costly but I didn't regret spending so much.
