Experience the unique world that exists in the backwater dependent ecosystem. On board our Kettuvallom (houseboat) one can closely observe and understand the daily routine’s of the local people without being obtrusive. This is what SAAM’s Celebrations Leisure (India) Pvt. Ltd has to offer.
After successfully operating our Ultra Luxury Houseboat in Alleppey, we have now introduced the first Heritage Houseboat on the river Thejaswani in Nileshwaram that lies in Kasargod district.
Clear backwaters, palm-lined shores and swathes of green is what one can expect to see when on SAAM’s Eco-houseboat. Get an insight into the local culture and plan a trip to the Parassinikadavu Temple during its Theyyam celebrations. Other tasks to jot down in your checklist should include visiting a mussel farm and learning the trade of a coir craftsman. The coir industry thrives around the backwaters due to the abundance of coconut trees.
On board the boat our attentive crew will lay out mouth-watering local delicacies on traditional banana leafs. An English speaking guide can be made available for any queries that you may have during your vacation.
The boat has been designed as a blend of traditional art and modern comforts. Our eco-friendly boat offers all that a traveler would wish for; a spacious double cabin with an attached bathroom and an open sit-out area that offers spectacular views. No television or air conditioner will disturb your peace. Due to the mild climate that Nileshwaram receives, the lack of air conditioning is barely even noticed!
Unexplored and unspoilt, the backwaters of Kozhikode offer a delightful array of holidaying options: Elathur, the Canoli Canal and the Kallai River are locations that are famous for boating whereas Kadalundi, with its beautiful bird sanctuary and Korapuzha, the venue of the Korapuzha Jalotsavam (water fiesta), are popular tourist destinations as well.
30 km from Bekart Fort in Kasaragod lies Valiyaparamba Island. It’s the location for one of the most scenic backwater stretches in Kerala. The backwaters are fed by four rivers and are dotted with numerous little islands. You can explore the Valiyaparamba Backwaters in a houseboat from Kottappuram in Nileshwaram to Kannur. The island itself is known for its exotic flora and fauna along with some stunning views of the Arabian Sea.
Kottappuram is famous for its coir industry and one of the oldest coir factories in the Malabar area can be found 5 km southwest of Nileshwaram. The factory is situated amongst the placid backwaters of Kottappuram. The city gets its name from the word Kotta which means ‘fort’. The literal translation then reads ‘Place around the Fort’. It got its name from the Cranganore Fort built by Portuguese Settlers early on in the 16th century. Only the remains of the fort are now visible as it was attacked and destroyed first by Zamorin and then by Tipu Sultan.
