Bekal Mermaid Houseboat
A memorable day on a traditional Kerala houseboat cruising along the beautiful scenery of backwaters and evergreen. The houseboats are able to house 15-30 people on a go and the crew shall ensure the complete comfort for the guests. The amenities of the houseboat would more than satisfy the passengers, be it a family vacation trip, buddy hangout or a company outing. The cruise takes the guests on a leisure cruise from the serene water of Thejaswini, to the still water of Valiyaparamba. With the estuary opening to the ocean in the west and the palm fringed island, the ambiance here offers an abundance of natural beauty and photographic opportunity. As a stopover, guests are taken to familiarize the rich biodiversity of a patch of evergreen forest at Edayilakkad. Popularly known as Monkey Island among tourists, here children can enjoy their time feeding friendly monkeys. The professionally trained crew would compete each other to serve the guests with an array of both conventional and contemporary cuisines, especially with a sumptuous feast that is served after the stopover and much more. The cruise covers the regions of Valiyaparamba, Edayilakkad, Kavvayi, Azhithala, Ezhimala etc.
The Bekal Mermaid Houseboat will provide the materialistic luxuries of comfort and great food while cruising. Bekal Mermaid is one of the leading houseboat services in Kerala. We offer the guest to make the opportunity to make the best of each and every moment of the valuable time with each other, at the spectacular backwaters of Nileshwar.
The backwaters are just mesmerising to say the least. Surrounded by thick coconut trees, vast expanse of water and rare species of birds perching on trees....it is an absolute treat to be in such an environment.
The docking place of the houseboats are a really pleasant place to visit in the evenings. The place is not very crowded and is fit for both an extended stay at the resort around or for a few hours to cruise in the backwaters. There are few entrances to this waterway but the best place to start is Kottapuram through the wooden bridge across the backwaters from where the cruise begins!
