Need suggestion for a Stay in Allepey.

Hi Guys,

I am planning for a Day Cruise in the house boat so need your valuable suggestion.

1. What time should I leave from Munnar to Allepey.

2. Any resorts or hotel nearby from where I can also pick a houseboat (I will book in advance).

The day cruise timings are from 11 AM onwards , and it takes approx 4 & 1/2 to 5 Hours to reach Alleppey from Munnar

i would suggest to do a day cruise at Alleppey side of the backwaters.

Punnamada resort, lake palace , lemon tree resorts etc have their won houseboats .

Alleppey to Munnar it will take up to 5 Hours (195 Kms) in normal traffic. If you are staying in Houseboat in Alleppey, you will be checking out by 9 AM from houseboat. And you can start your journey to Munnar

As suggested above by other reviewer, Lake Palace, Punnamada etc having their own houseboats. Also most of the hotels having tie up with houseboat providers.

From Munnar to Alleppey it will take 5 to 6 hours drive.

Staying in a houseboat in night will be very much economical, rather than doing a day cruise in houseboat & then in night staying in a resort.

In Kerala most of the places especially in village places the life will settle down by 8 pm ( only cities like Cochin & TVM the life will be active till 11 pm that too in shopping malls)

Punnamada Backwater resorts have their own houseboats ( price will be high)

Ramada Alleppey can arrange houseboat with their associate houseboat operators.

If you book a houseboat through the resorts the price will be very high.

If you are planing for a day cruise in houseboat book the houseboat through reputed houseboat operators & book a nice resorts .

Lake Canopy, Deshadan resorts are medium budgeted properties in Alleppey

At Alleppey, It is best to take a houseboat cruise that starts at around noon time. So you must start from Munnar at about 8:00 AM.

Some of the resorts that offer a houseboat cruise are:

1) Punnamada Resorts

2) Carnoustie Wellness Resort

3) Nova Holidays
