Amazingly, not even a single nail is used in its construction. Jack-wood planks are put together with coir rope and then coated with black resin made from boiled cashew-nut shells.
Completely modified to meet at the necessities of modern life, these houseboats emanate luxury and comfort. These houseboats are adequately furnished with an open lounge, bath-attached bedrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. A cook, a Captain and an Oarsman make up the crew for every houseboat making your stay comfortable and pleasurable. The cooks in the houseboats are the best in the business and offer delectable local cuisines.
