Sail on the Spice Routes Houseboat

The wide rivers and narrow canals of Kerala have long been the preserve of traders ferrying rice and spice around the towns and villages of southern India. These days, many of the former rice barges have been converted into houseboats to provide travellers with new and exciting adventures, afloat.

Life onboard is comfortable and relaxed, with a friendly crew navigating the peaceful backwaters and providing breakfast and lunch onboard. Guests are also invited to dine onshore, in places like the lakeside Coconut Lagoon Resort. There’s nothing better than enjoying an intimate evening under the stars before settling into your spacious cabin and allowing the gentle rocking of the water to carry you off to sleep in your comfy double bed.

With the widest choice of holidays and travel experiences than ever before, you can now personalise your trip so you are in complete control. All this is backed up by the high-standards and service you’d expect from Saga.
