CGH Spice Coast Cruise

With  a few tweaks to the hull, partitioned bedrooms and all the modern conveniences added, we've converted these  'Kettuvalloms' as they are called, into elegant floating homes that cruise the inland sea of the Vembanad near our Coconut Lagoon property. Made completely from natural materials, the boats are powered by solar energy and vegetable oil. Canopies of cane and rattan blend into  coir-matted decks creating a warm, natural ambience that's almost entirely hand-crafted.

With it's cane and rope awnings flying rakishly, its silent hull gliding past as if on wings of air, a houseboat  seems to do more than just belong to this world of palms and water. It seems to have been birthed from it.

  • Accomodation

     Fitted with one/two ensuite bedrooms, and a living room. Bedrooms are warm, cozy spaces with mesh windows that let in the palm-scented breeze, even as they keep little insects at bay. With the rhythmic cries of the cicadas and the gentle lap-lap of moving water as your background music, you can look forward to an amazingly restful night out on the lake's centre.

  • Restaurant

    Your meals are prepared by your boatmen in their traditional manner. In other words, lots of fresh flavours and a minimum of fuss. It is the very same food which they eat, made with tangy spices and with a lot of coconut. The fish was probably caught while you were sleeping, then marinated in red chilies, ginger and lime, before being grilled. Accompaniments may include lentils and gourd cooked with fresh pepper and mustard seeds, served  with  greens handpicked from the little markets that dot the canals. And (we need hardly add), lots of steaming bowls of rice.
