Rooms & Features

The Lotus is an imaginative new interpretation of the traditional Kerala houseboat, a unique creation that combines the natural rhythms of the old-fashioned with the modern amenities of a first-class hotel.

The houseboat has been designed to give its guests the feeling of freedom and the luxury of space:

  • Each of the two bedrooms (appropriately named Sukhima (‘Happiness’) and Lalima (‘Beauty’) measure over 16 x 13 feet and has solid teak floors. Light and airy with cheerful colours, they have a large glass observation window with insect-proof screen, locally made wooden furniture, ethnic durrie rugs and paintings by a Kerala artist in the traditional temple mural style, as well as an i-pod docking system, safe and hair-dryer. Guests have the option of a fan or state of the art air-conditioning.
  • Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (10 x 9 feet) with tub and shower and delicious organic Fabindia toiletries.
  • Each also has its own private sitting-out verandah to enjoy those special moments.

There are two public areas for relaxing and enjoying a drink or a meal:

  • The lower Sitting Room (measuring 19 x 19 feet) and
  • The upper Sun-deck (33 x 18 feet).
