    Hi

    Does anyone here know what the current rate for a houseboat in Kerala is? I was searching for it and spoke to one operator who quoted INR. 10,000 for one night and said breakfast is included in it, but I think it’s a lot of money for one night. We will be there in mid-January so please suggest is it better to book it in advance or we can get a better deal after reaching there?

    Please share your experience too.


    Thanks,
    Mak & Ila

    Hi

    I am not sure about the exact price but I am sure this INR. 10,000 is a pure rip off. I remember paying INR. 6000 for 24 hours stay (couple) with complementary dinner, it was March 2014 so now it should not be anywhere more than INR. 7000 for a nice luxury houseboat. In my opinion you need not to book it in advance and you can find thousand many houseboats after reaching there and it would not be a problem to pick and choose one. If they quote 10,000 again then tell them your price (which is supposed to be 40% less) as they bargain a lot.

    Rs10,000 that is a lot of money! Why is it so much?
    It would be better booking before your arrival and negotiate the pricing and also consider asking prices for other houseboats.
