The Discovery, Kumarakom [India]

Discovery offers cruise in the fabled backwaters of Kerala. Unlike the usual Kerala houseboat discovery blends the traditional hull of a wooden rice barge with contemporary tropical architecture, creating the space for an air-conditioned suite.

Discovery is the first boat on the backwaters to be completely eco-friendly. The experienced crew takes the guests through lakes, rivers & channels on a cruise full of discoveries. The sundeck above becomes a grandstand as the fascinating life along the waterfront passes by.

The discovery cruise departs and arrives at purity, 70km from Cochin international airport.


Accommodation

The discovery comprises 1 double bedroom and an identically sized living room both air-conditioned, spacious dressing room & bathroom. The living room can be converted into a twin bedroom. Upstairs on the deck there is a large covered sitting area and a sun deck. The panoramic windows offer exceptional views of the backwater world passing by.


Dining

Discovery comes with its own chef who will prepare delicious meals, based on the recipes of The Malabar House. Keralan and Mediterranean inspired cuisine is available. Meals are taken either on the privacy of your A/C living-dining room or upstairs on the deck overlooking the lake.
