We were a group of 9 people and booked a 4 BR boat. It is definitely one of the vacations that our family talks about and wish about going back again. Every single person enjoyed the trip and we are a group with different tastes. I enjoyed the serenity, the company of my family and the food. My husband is... More

There seems to be many houseboat sizes and grades, ours was configured for 2 couples (ie 2 bedrooms) but we were the only guests. The sights and sounds as we leisurely cruised the backwaters were just marvellous. There was always something to see – even though just sitting back and enjoying the peace and quiet was a joy itself.

Hard to put into words how incredible this experience was. I was with my friend - just the two of us and we had a crew of three. Nothing was too much trouble. The food they cooked was just so delicious and so much of it. We felt as if we were treated like royalty. If you can picture what... More

We had two days of gentle drifting around the backwaters with our very attentive crew. It was totally relaxing and a great way to see wildlife. Our cabin was beautiful, lovely and cool, lots of details. The crew were lovely and really looked after us, the food produced from such a tiny kitchen was amazing and delicious! My husband is...

We had read ahead of time about dirty boats, lice, bad food......and couldn't recognize any of that. Our wonderful boat was clean, the rooms very surprisingly spacious, and our staff (Matthew, Peter and Kumar) were lovely people, friendly, smiling and always ready to point something out on the shore and tell us little stories about, what we passed on our...

Coming up to our trip through Kerala, I was really struggling to find a reputable company offering houseboats with great reviews. I finally found Lakes and Lagoons and after reading many good reviews, booked through them. I had initially asked if they had any boats with an upper deck, but they could guarantee that we would be able to have... More

It was our first time to Kerala and we just had to do the backwaters that so many talk about. We booked through an agent in Delhi and we were 4 couples. We came off a long drive from Munnar so we were looking forward to a quiet relaxing time. We finally got on our Houseboat which was quaint, modern... More

Our houseboat picked us up from our hotel jetty which was great. We had 3 staff with us. The houseboat was immaculate and comfortable. We had taken our own alcohol on board so the staff put it in the chiller for us and brought us a welcome fruit juice. We discussed the menu plans and our likes and dislikes with... More
