Have you ever experienced rustic life from close proximity? Or for that matter have you gone out of your way to give that special zing to your vacation?
If you are different from the run of the mill people, and tired of visiting hackneyed destinations, try out the backwaters of Kerala with its many estuaries and canal system, acting as an inland route for the many houseboats that ply in the area regularly. Alleppey, which is the central point from where these houseboats divulge, speaks of a small town with quaint churches. A scenic town with a network of canals and villages to frequent, Alleppey is surely a tourist hotspot. Soma Houseboats provides an excellent setting and ambience for you to unwind and experience that “calm of mind” that Wordsworth so diligently wrote about in his poems.
Operated by the Somatheeram group, Soma Houseboats consists of mini cottages, done tastefully but with simplicity. The boat is designed in a most eco friendly way, with natural materials but at the same time retaining the comforts of a good hotel. It is provided with a scenic deck and a carpeted hall where all can gather and watch the lingering sunset over the sea. You are provided with clean sets of linens and towels once you step inside the cabin. The bathroom though small is meticulously clean and eco friendly.
Soma Houseboats travel through Alleppey, en route to Kumarakom. Cruising through the Punnamada Lake or seeing the quaint church hidden behind the paddy fields, or the old temple, all speak of an old world charm. When you get back to the groove of your city life, you will surely take back with you a heart full of memories.
