House boat

Houseboat is one of the major tourist attractions of Kerala backwaters. The houseboats have become floating cottages having well furnished bedroom with western-style toilets, modern kitchen, dining area and a sit out on the deck. Most tourists spend the night on a house boat. Food is cooked on board by qualified staff – mostly having a flavour of Kerala.

The houseboats size depends up on the number of bedrooms. Normally the houseboats are having one to four bedrooms. The living-cum-dining space is usually open, at least three sides providing a grand view of the surroundings, when it is on the move. Houseboats are working with inboard engines but generally proceed at a slow speed for smooth travel. All houseboats have a generator and most bedrooms are air-conditioned as per demand of customers.

Kettuvallam

Kettuvallam is a malayalam language "kettu" means "to tie" and "vallam" means boat – together it makes a local name "kettuvallam". Kettuvallam is a house boat widely used in the Indian state of Kerala. Basically the kettuvallam was designed to transport men and materials from the isolated interior villages of Kerala Backwater area to the towns of Allappy, Kollam, Cochin and Kottayam. With the advent of roads, bridges and ferry services, gradually the Rice Boats (Kettuvallams) went off the scene.

Now these kettuvalloms are back again as a major tourist attraction as a modern moving House Boat that is Kerala House Boats. The materials to be used to make a houseboat are Anjili wood and eco friendly Bamboo poles, Coconut fiber ropes, Bamboo mats etc
