Long before the coming of the rail and the road, waterways were the best mode of transport. Kuttanadan rice was transported to nearby markets of Kottayam, Kollam and cochin by long rice boats which just had a small hut for the boatman called Kettuvallams. Some of these Kettuvallams have now been converted into luxury single, double and triple bedroom houseboats for cruises and overnight stay in the backwaters. For a total Alappuzha experience traverse the canals and anchor in the middle of the backwater lakes on a house boat - spend the night under the star lit sky, listening to the slash of water on to the boat.
If you are a fishing enthusiast, cast the net-wait for your big catch sufficient for a spicy dinner of rice and fish. Awake in the early morning listening to the seagulls and the slash of small fishing boats making their way for the daily catch. Do not miss the mind capturing beauty of the sunrise on the horizon. Tharavad's this candid and cozy float enliven your house of dreams.

With the Arabian sea on the west and a vast network of lakes, lagoons, and fresh water rivers crises crossing it. Alappuzha is a district of immense natural beauty. Referred to as the Venice of the East by travelers from across the world, this backwater country is also home to diverse animal and bird life. By virtue of its proximity to the sea, the town has always enjoyed a unique place in the maritime history of Kerala.
We had an awesome experience at this property. We reached the property easily with the help of accurate directions provided by GH. The hosts were very polite and giving, and did everything they could to make it a memorable stay for us. Our room was well-maintained and beautifully decorated, with a pretty welcome kit kept on the bed. It made us feel so special. They fed us really well with delicious food, and also gave us a little history tour about the town. It was a one of a kind experience for us and we returned home with tons of memories.
The host is humble and gracious enough which made our stay here very home like. It was just plain amazing to experience such intimate hospitality. The food served here was awesome while the location has a fantastic view. I would love to recommend this place to my friends.
The boat crew treated us with lot of care. Clean rooms and stay. The best part of the trip was the top balcony, where we can relax with no disturbance and have a clear view and breeze. Best for a family of 4.
