House Boat vacation with kids in Allapuzha Houseboat

Are you planning a summer vacation with kids? With so many amazing places in India, you must be finding difficult to select one. But what if you get to know about a place with mind-blowing climate and an awesome experience of House boat? It will be just wow.

HouseboatThe Houseboat industry of Allapuzha(one of the place in Kerala) is famous in the world. It has been likened to a canal park during the peak season. I along with my daughter when visited Kerala, we had an amazing House Boat experience. Although the House Boat traveling is a bit expensive I am a travel lover so don’t mind opening my wallet for some unique and amazing experience.

The House Boats there are called “Spice Roots Luxury House Boat”, in which there is a variety of House Boats named as of spices like Cardamom, clove, cinnamon, etc. The House Boats are of different sizes which either has 1-room, 2-room, 3-room or 4-room depending on the size of House Boat. The meal was provided in the House Boat cruise itself or we can also prepare food with our own hands as the kitchen are also available for preparing food for your own taste.

They provide both veg and non-veg food. But you have houseboats which give you one-hour ride experience too, but I always enjoy the night stay in a houseboat as I love to see the calmness of water and feel the tranquil dark water.

The houseboat holiday is full of adventures, it gives the amazing experience of exploring the new environment and learning new skills. For kids, it is fun and at the same time very much exciting to play near water. My angel learned fishing from one of the travelers who always loved to talk about and do fishing only. In fact, we all did fishing in Kerala but never got any fish in a net.

HouseboatA houseboat is child-friendly and is the very safe way to spend the vacations with family. For, adults, house Boat offers a chance to relax, enjoy and spend quality time with family and just go hygge and feel cozy with friends.

At Allapuzha along with House Boat ride, it also gives many options to do dive and swim if you are a good swimmer. You can make your houseboat hold and do shopping like floating market of Thailand. Or on a sunny day look for a sandy beach nearby or a peaceful bay, where you can enjoy your day.

In the free time discover the nature with the family by clicking a lot of natural photographs. There are also cultural attractions available for the full family while you do houseboats ride. Some houseboat hold evening live music if it’s a huge group.

Knowing the House Boat experience, all House Boat’s vessels are equipped with GPS trackers, so that even if you miss your way while on House Boat, it can help you to find your way back to track. A House-Boat is an extremely safe way to spend your holiday with kids when you follow basic safety measures.

Don’t try to jump in the middle of water if you don’t know swimming. Never allow your kids to bump and bend in water .the child may fall. Motion sickness happens to kids if a lot of waves comes. Just enjoy the houseboat with kids and have fun.

  1. Hey Sneha, I live in Kochi. And Alappuzha is just 1 hour drive from my place. Good for you to have visited Kerala. Yes, as you say Houseboats are expensive but a fun experience as you say. Great article.

  2. Your post bought back memories of my visit quite some years back. I had visited Alapuzzha, Thekkaady, Munnar and had stayed in a houseboat. It was indeed pure fun to stay and enjoy the backwaters amidst all the greenary. Thanks for this article, it had my spirits soaring reminiscing that vacation.

    Wow Sneha!!! The pictures are amazing. The room and the spread of food didn’t look like belonging to a houseboat. It goes straight on my list of holiday destinations during the summer break.
