Cruise

Southern India’s Kerala Backwaters are a unique network of canals and lakes linked by 44 rivers to create an uninterrupted water navigation system stretching over 450 kilometres.
The only way to truly explore this lush world is by staying overnight on board a Kettuvallam. Originally a thatched roof rice barge, these vessels have been converted into luxurious air-conditioned houseboats. 

Offering a unique way to explore the tranquil backwaters, you’ll have the chance to stop along the route to meet the locals before returning to feast on delicious local specialities prepared on board. Voted one of the 50 destinations of a lifetime by National Geographic Traveller, after spending a night on board in this unique region, we are sure you’ll agree.
