About your Kerala Houseboat
The Vaikundam is a beautifully designed traditional houseboat with just 9 twin bedded cabins.
All cabins have air conditioning and are tastefully decorated with an enchanting mix of antique and modern accessories. Solar panels provide the attached bathrooms with hot water and the houseboat is fitted with modern waste disposal units that ensure that we leave no trace of our journey along the pristine waterways.
The upper deck of Vaikundum gives you a 360 degree perspective of this unique landscape. Enjoy a village walk or lounge the day away reading from the library as the world drifts slowly by.
After a sunset drink in the evening, be prepared to be wowed by the exquisite cuisine lovingly prepared by the chef and served in the airconditioned dining area on the upper deck.
