versions of yesteryear “Kettuvallams”. Kettuvallams were used to transport
rice, coconut and other items from isolated backwater villages to towns. They
came with thatched roofs over wooden hulls providing for protection from
natural elements. Although the form remains largely unaltered, houseboats are
two to three storied affairs with one to five bedrooms. Apart from sleeping
space houseboats provide for dining space and a sit out open on all sides. From
here the exquisite beauty of backwaters can be relished. Houseboats are run in
a sluggish pace, although they are motorized, to allow tourists to drink the
charm of backwaters to the fullest.
