    Houseboats & Backwaters:

    Kettuvallams (popularly known as Houseboats) are country boats that were used in the early days for the transport of goods from the isolated interior villages to the towns. With the advent of roads, bridges and ferry services, gradually the Kettuvallams went off the scene. Now these Kettuvallams (houseboats) are back again as a major tourist attraction. The present day houseboats are mini resorts in water with wide range of facilities. These houseboats are furnished with an inviting open lounge, comfortable bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a well stocked, hygienic kitchenette. Usually, the bedrooms in the houseboats are air conditioned with generator facility. The interior furniture of houseboats is made of either cane or wood, floor carpeted with coir mat or wood panels.
