Indraprastham Cruise

Ever wanted to slip out of your daily routine and take a break? Set your mind free for some time? Far from the madding crowd? This is perhaps a desire that nags most people- to kick monotony where it hurts! What if, breaking the routine could be spiced up a little? Instead of going to a regular hotel and hiring cabs or driving around for sightseeing, why not do something different and float on the waters of God’s own country instead?

‘Indraprastham’ cruise offers just this service with their wide range of houseboats for you to choose from. Think about it: a house that floats! That is really going to be worth the experience. Be it cruising along the shoreline with your loved ones or sipping a cold beverage on the balcony of your houseboats as it sails into the sunset horizon, Indraprastham has got it all covered and offers their services in packages as per your preference. Your tour can be a short one just to cover the wonderful experience of living on a houseboat, or a long one relishing the beauty of backwaters while enjoying mouth-watering seafood cuisines prepared by chefs who are experts in the local cuisine.


With more than fifteen years of service in tourism field, Indraprastham is one of the pioneers of houseboat tourism. Their constant perseverance for excellence has resulted in several delightfully satisfied customers among tourists throughout the globe.

All the houseboats have beautifully furnished bedrooms, hygienic, eco-friendly toilet facilities and even LCD TVs if you’re in the mood to binge watch a couple of shows or check the news during the stay.

    What We Love

    • Apart from equipping the houseboats to create a comfortable and cosy haven for its travellers, Indraprastham has also created a carefully curated tour map for the houseboats, that involves travelling in the midst of lush greenery of coconut trees and tiny villages that are not accessible by road- it is a spectacle that makes one truly marvel at the beauty of the backwaters. 
    • Indraprastham does not limit their services to houseboats alone. They have a chain of services which include sightseeing in Kumarakom and Alappuzha. These water kissed areas of Kerala have tales of sustenance to sing- of preserving the rural profession of weaving coir ropes and harvesting paddy.
    • You can also go on a fishing expedition in Kumarakom, go bird watching in the bird sanctuary, or board a country boat and visit some of the oldest churches in Kerala built along the shores of Alappuzha – all with the convenience of a guided tour provided by one of the most trusted names in Kerala’s tourism industry – Indraprastham.
    • All the food served on the table will be prepared fresh within the houseboat itself, in the kitchen that has all the amenities of a modern kitchen. The food will be cooked as per your preference and contentment. The chefs employed on the boat are committed to serving your culinary desires be it continental, north-Indian or Chinese.

    What To Know

    • As the boat travels through small, interconnected canals, you’ll realize why they call it the ‘Venice of the East’. During the monsoon, the houseboat and its journey through the waters is an enchanting sight lifted right out of your wildest dreams or a child’s fairy-tale book. The water droplets on the surface of the river, and the echo of water hitting the palm-leaf roof of your houseboat gently elates you- just as the boat floats on this water, so would your soul, inside your body.
    • Choose over a wide variety of seafood such as Pearl Spot (locally known as Karimeen) fry, which is infamous both in India and abroad as a delicacy endemic to Kuttanad, or a selection of fishes, crabs, prawns and shellfish, all prepared with a blend of traditional spices and herbs, a taste that truly brings with it, an out-of-the-world experience.
    • If you’re not so keen on seafood, a selection of poultry is yours to pick, especially the roasted duck which is a fulfilling dish that would have you craving for more once you’ve tasted it. There is always the option of having a traditional Kerala meal, consisting of the staple curries and rice along with a fish fry of your choice.
