Spice Coast Cruises

Kerala Backwaters | Superior

Boats are by far the best way to see the fabled Kerala backwaters, and these converted rice barges have been beautifully kitted out, using traditional materials coupled with contemporary comforts.

The cabins are lovely, their woven walls, split bamboo ceilings and carved wooden details looking absolutely in keeping with the traditional boat, while a comfortable bed and soft linens ensure you don’t have to endure any old-fashioned hardships - you’ll even have your own bath.

Meals on board will be local recipes prepared by your boatmen, who grew up on these waters and know exactly how to rustle up the freshest flavours from regional ingredients, from fish caught in the lake to red rice grown on its shores.

Spend your time on board relaxing and resting, soaking up the scenery and breathing in the fresh air and chilled out ambience.
