The backwaters of Kuttanad

Your cruise through the backwaters of Kuttanad travels through a shimmering labyrinth of waterways composed of lakes, canals, rivers and rivulets, an ecosystem that is composed of freshwater from rivers that mingles with seawater flowing inland at high tide. Fringed by palm trees beside canals, unique species of aquatic life including crabs, frogs, mudskippers and water birds such as Terns, Kingfishers, Darters, Cormorants besides Otters and Turtles live here.

Kettuvalam (traditional houseboat)

The presence of water all around has meant that the people of the region have had to resort to boats of indigenous design. The wood used in the construction of these boats is derived from the ‘Anjili’ tree (Artocarpus hirsuta). The hull of the canoe is first constructed with a series of wooden planks, cut in lengths, carved and tied together using coir with coconut fiber in between. They are then held fast with knotted coir (not a single nail is used). The hull is later coated with a resin extracted from boiled cashew kernels.  A Floohoo boat contains a crew of three – A helmsman, a cook and an assistant.  The chef on board a Floohoo boat will serve both vegetarian and non-vegetarian traditional Kerala cuisine. Non-vegetarian dishes contain fish and chicken.

Floohoo Deluxe house boats

The deluxe houseboats are built in the traditional manner yet contain all contemporary amenities. The furniture and décor, however bear the signature imprint of Kerala’s indigenous aesthetic. The bedrooms in the deluxe boats are air- conditioned. The air-conditioners are turned on only at night.

Floohoo Luxury house boats

The luxury houseboats are entirely contemporary in their furnishing and décor. Built in the traditional manner, they nevertheless offer the state of the art in amenities and comfort. The bedrooms and lobby in the luxury boats are centrally air-conditioned. Floohoo offers 1/2/3 bed roomed boats. There are larger boats available, however we recommend that groups of guests travelling with us take at the most a 3 bedroom boat as the larger boats are unable to cruise through the canals.

Cruising timing - ( check in 12 hrs and check out 09 hrs.) Floohoo offers two types of cruises - a day cruise lasting 4hours and overnight cruise. On a day cruise only lunch is served on board. On an overnight cruise lunch, dinner and breakfast are served.
