The houseboats are a technical marvel. Their design incorporates the best of the old and the new. Even while retaining the strong flavour of traditionalism, they are nothing less than the standards of a star residential hotel when it comes to safety, comforts and conveniences. Meticulously furnished and elegantly floored, these houseboats provide you the choice of single, double or triple bedrooms. The houseboats come attached with a neat, flushing WC and kitchenette. Some houseboats offer the luxury of a private balcony and sun decks with comfortable chairs.
