Sustainable Houseboats by Xandari Riverscapes.


Experience seamless panorama of life and scenery on the backwaters in a one bedroom, two bedrooms, or three bedroom houseboat, each designed with great care and attention to detail by Xandari, and built by local craftsmen. These 'kettuvallams', as they’re known locally, are comfortable and plush, and are built to deliver the escape and relaxation that take one away from all kinds of stress.
Each bedroom is spacious enough in its 14 square meters, with en suite bathrooms, large picture windows, and an option of either one double or two single beds.
To maintain a tranquil backwater experience, our boats are television free zones.


Xandari Riverscapes is a fleet of 9 sustainably crafted houseboats with all modern amenities and facilities including ensuite attached to every air conditioned bedroom, a complete kitchen with personal chef and large living spaces for leisure. The boats have been named after the local rivers of Kerala - their Malayalam names and configurations below:

  • 1 Bedroom - Karamanayar, Chaliyar
  • 2 Bedroom - Pamba, Periyar
  • 3 Bedroom - Achankovilar, Moozhiyar, Pallanayar, Manimalayar, Neyyar
