Lake View House Boats
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2017

We spent three incredible days and nights in Ganga, a one bedroom houseboat from Lake View. We went all the way south to Chengannur and enjoyed rivers and canals with little or no traffic from other houseboats. Our Captain seemed to have a GPS in his head and our Cook was absolutely five star chef. The assistance from the main office was outstanding. We highly recommend Sree Tours.

Room Tip: We went to a houseboat, not to a hotel

Dear Alfred, Thank you for reviewing us about our houseboat and your trip in Kerala backwaters. We are happy that you enjoyed your trip. Your specific requirements of going through remote villages, small canals and specially canals without any other houseboat was difficult. It was possible only with small houseboat even without a top floor. Our Ganga one bed room boat is a basic dlx boat but we ensured that all facility is provided in the boat. Hope you will come back again for another trip and will recommend your friends.
regards

We rented the premium house boat from lake view house boat. First thing that inspired us was the Boat, new, modern & interiors were well decorated. Staffs were good and gave us a cool welcome with fresh tender coconut. Fantastic Chef who cooked delicious food for us. We enjoyed every moment in this house boat.
It was really relaxing experience for us.

This was our first time staying on a placid lake in a luxury house boat celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. It is a memorable experience but it took a little time to adapt to the unique environment instead of our usual J W Marriott hotel experience. But I would recommend it.

We took Premium House Boat, We request for Two BedRoom House boat with Sun Deck. But SreeKumar provided us three BedRoom house boat on the cost of two Bedroom . House Boat is Awesome, Interior Design and bathroom are equivalent to 5* Hotel. Its FULL TIME A/C so you wont feel sultry . Spacious open upper deck with ample seating for families to enjoy the outdoor views during the cruising time. Night time the Upper Deck is covered to avoid insect to come inside. Lower deck Glass enclosed living and dining room to enjoy the views. Very friendly, attentive staff to cater to your dining needs. Excellent food choices, We thought of getting Crab, so boat men stopped the boat in mid of the way and allowed us to purchase the Crab and cooked for us. They maintained a very clean boat, cleaning up the dining room and kitchen immediately after every meal.

Night time the Ambiance is very nice, Different colored moody lights makes you to feel as joy of flying. only concern is they allowed up to 10:00 P.M to access the Lobby and Living area. There is nothing to do after 10:00 P.M , Still as a family get together if we want to sit and chat , then its limited up to 10:00 P,M.

They are docking the Boat in Private Area , (Not attached with other boats), So you will get full Privacy for your boat and also good View in the Morning time. We wake around 6:30 and had good tea, have small walk in the paddy field area. Children's in the Boat Enjoyed the FISHING (They Providing Fishing Rods) The Cruise starts at 7:30, so you have to come back to Boat before that.

Overall its a Awesome stay and worth for Money. We feel like Home. Beyond Our Home in the lake.

Room Tip: Take Palazhi House Boat.

Greetings from Lake view houseboat
We thank you for using your valuable time to write reviews about your travel experience in our PALAZHI super luxury 3 bed room houseboat. It is indeed a detailed one. Though its a 3 room boat, one can also book this as 2 bed room and cost will be for 2 rooms only. Due to security reasons by local police, the front area can be used till 10pm only. Though we used to give little relaxation, the staff on board also need to take rest as they may have another trip and need to be ready by 12pm next day. The only entertainment in all the boat after sun set is to watch movie, music etc. We glad that your stay in our houseboat is a memorable one.
Thank you for sharing.
regards,
Sreekumar
