Sustainable Houseboats by Xandari Riverscapes.

Overview

Xandari Riverscapes is your entry into the stunning ecosystem that thrives and florishes along the Vembanad - the largest lake in Kerala and the longest in India.

We have made every effort to design our operations for local community development. The crew and chef are from the local community and their knowledge of the land, the local stories and the insights about this unique habitat are intriguing for any traveller.

Houseboats, also called as Kettuvallams, a type of boat that has secured a place in history. Traditionally used as rice boats their construction is based on binding wood with knots or 'kettu' and hence the name. Not a single nail is used while making them. Moreover local resources are utilized, like fish oil for water proofing and thatches for the roofing. Local craftsmen, whose knowledge has been gained from their ancestors, are responsible for the construction of these houseboats. These beauties trace the routes of erstwhile rice merchants and wanderers across the picturesque lake and waterways.

This area, Kuttanad, is one of the few places in the world where cultivated land is below sea level, which also makes it one of the most fertile parts of the state. Indigenous methods of fishing and farming have evolved here due to the distinct ecosystem of the land. Feel a part of the landscape as the wind brings the fragrance of swaying paddy to the accompaniment of bird call and the gentle lapping of water.

Dream, Ponder, And Set Your Mind Free...

Watch the trees lean down to whisper secrets to the river. Innumerable waterways lead inwards vanishing around bends, leanding a mystery to where they are going and the people who live there.

Glide through the centuries' old traditions of Alleppey village life in this one-hour wooden canoe exploration through backwater canals. Where you can get a sneek peak into the lives of malayalees and understand that happiness often lies in the little little things in everyday routines of lives- children playing hide and seek between coconut trees, fishermen folk going about their daily lives, the mouth watering aroma of Naadan (authentic) homely food lurking in the air.
