Our houseboat trip on the Anna was a joy. The bedrooms were attractive, comfortable, air-conditioned and their floor to ceiling windows meant that we could lie in bed and watch the sun rise over the water. We spent most of the daytime on deck, enchanted by the village life drifting past and by the wide variety of birds on the water and in the air.
Before we set off, the very efficient young manager came to check the boat and to make sure that we were happy with all the arrangements. When we docked for the night, he reappeared, again checking that all was well and helping us to organise a canoe trip through some of the narrower village waterways. The Crew were super helpful and friendly and the Cook was first class (the meals on board were among the best of our trip and we had many wonderful meals in Kerala).
All in all, our only regret was that we had not booked the ANNA for longer. The 24 hours flew by, so next time we will aim for at least three days. Many thanks to all concerned for such a happy experience.
