The South India region

Alleppey / Alappuzha is the best backwater location that you can find in India. Alleppey includes Kuttanad which is said as the rice bowl of Kerala. Here you can relax in the vast backwaters and enjoy the serene beauty of lush green paddy fields. You will get a chance to experience the natural life of backwater villages in Alleppey. This place is the must visit for people who enjoy nature and who love photography. Relax !


The starting place of houseboat / boathouse cruising is near to Alleppey town. The area is called Punnamada. Its 1 Km from the bus station and 4 Kms from the railway station. From both the places you can hire a taxi or auto rickshaw to reach the place.

"Kerala Backwaters are just excellent"

This is a nice house boat, House boat is clean. Don't expect too much about room, as rooms are like hotel of 1000 Rs./night. Staff behavior is quite good and helping in nature. But as per quotati… More

Dear Sir,

Thankyou for your reply. Happy that you enjoyed the trip :). Few things we would to clarify .

1) We have given our premium 4 bedroom houseboat new houseboat (photos shown in our website ) as 1 bedroom for our guest.Its a new houseboat with all modern facilities and modern bathrooms.So we couldn't understand why its mentioned like Rs.1000/room.

2) We have given a special Monsoon discount from the offered price to the the guest along with complimentary honeymoon specials :) .

3)We are happy to take the guest for village walk and church visit, our crew very friendly and caring. But due to weather condition the boat might get anchored a bit early. We give more importance to security factors so if its rains very heavily we will anchor the boat and will continue only after the rain subsides.

"An unforgettable experience"

We stayed with Pournami Houseboats during our honeymoon trip and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. The boat crew was really friendly. Alappuzha being a non-vegetarian's paradise, we expected mediocre vegetarian food but it turned out to be surprisingly excellent! The boat was also very well maintained and clean. It was really a memorable trip and we would definitely suggest Pournami to anyone who wishes to stay in a houseboat in Alappuzha.

We are happy to hear that you really enjoyed the houseboat trip. Thank you so much. Come back soon :)

"Filthy mice infested boat"

We booked a 2 night stay on the 2 bed houseboat. The boat was filthy with dirt, cobwebs and ants everywere. The bathroom was disgusting and had mushrooms growing in it and mice living in it. The light… More

Dear Mam,

First of all it was shocking to see your review in trip advisor as we regularly go through the feedback forms which we collect form the guest and for further reference we used to file it.

1. In the feedback form it was mentioned 'Beautiful , Friendly staff , good service, Tasty Food ' and when it came to review it turned out to be terrible.

2. In the feedback form reg the Food :- Very good service and tasty food everyday ( we just replicate the statement made by our guest ) , then how come when it comes to tripadvisor the guest comments like (There were ants cooked in the food. This will never ever happen as we have well experienced staff and chef who were always there to treat our guest and ready to solve any issues.

3. Tv didnt work , Please note that Tv was functional , but TATA Sky we used to tell out guest when you travel through the interiors of lake there can be range issues. Once you anchor you will have proper range and view the channels. We have all modern entertainment facilities in the houseboat which are fully functional.

4.In the feedback form it was mentioned like ants was found, yes when we see that in our review we check with the captian in our houseboat , ofcourse when people do eat snack items , since the boat is in the lake there is a chance that ants might appear. The staff members clearly mentioned us that when they spotted the insects they cleaned it then and there.But we were 100% confident that our houseboat is not filthy and infested houseboat as we care for our reviews and our guest.

5. Regarding the toilet cleanliness , it was not even mentioned in the feedback form.

We have a genuine question to our guest, you stayed with us for 2 nights & 3 days , the whole 3 days we didn't get even a phone call from our guest saying like the houseboat is filthy . Even after seeing the feedback form, we didn't find anything worse in it. If we seen any bad comments we will definitely contact you and do reimbursement , if we are pretty sure that there was a mistake in our part.

We really know that we are in a hospitality industry and we do care for our guest . We value for the money spend by the guest. We do make calls to our houseboats even after the cruising starts to see how everything is going fine.

Finally regarding the rate of the houseboat we are just following the market trend and ofcourse we definitely know what kind of service we do to our customers.

But we are really sad to see such a review about Pournami Houseboats , we didn't had such an experience.
