Safety Meets Luxury: Unveiling Kerala’s Only Diamond Classified Houseboat Experience

Discover the enchanting backwaters of Kerala; a mesmerizing network of rivers, canals, and lakes that stretch over 1,600 kilometers. Renowned as a popular tourist destination, the Kerala backwaters are a great place to reflect, relax and unwind. If you are looking for a way to escape the routine, ruckus, and rumpus of life, then embarking on a cruise through the picturesque backwaters of Kerala is the best way to do it.

Hopping onto a houseboat to explore the backwaters of Kerala is an experience of a lifetime; a truly unforgettable one. You can spend your days indulging in the serenity of the waterways, bird-watching, swimming in the sparkling waters, or just relaxing on the deck of your houseboat.

The gentle sway of the boat, the soothing sound of water caressing its hull, and the quiet and peace of the surroundings are all elements to help you rejuvenate and de-stress.

As night falls, you can savor the delicious meals prepared by our chef, star-gaze under the night sky, and listen to the symphony of nocturnal sounds.

Houseboat cruising has gained immense popularity as the ideal way to make the most out of your backwaters experience, and SpiceRoutes stands out as one of the leading houseboat companies in Kerala. SpiceRoutes ensure that their itineraries are tailored to your preferences. Our houseboats are designed to provide exceptional comfort and luxury, equipped with all of the necessary safety features.

Our dedicated crew consists of highly trained professionals, and they are committed to providing our guests with a safe and memorable experience.

It is important to note that not all houseboats are created equal. Some are outdated and old, while others are poorly maintained.
That is why choosing a houseboat company that has a good safety record is paramount.

And at SpiceRoutes we are proud to say that we are the only houseboat company in Kerala that has been classified as a “Diamond Vessel” by the Department of Tourism.

What is a Diamond Vessel?
The Diamond Vessel classification is the highest level of classification for houseboats in Kerala. It means that our boats have met the highest standards of safety and comfort.

To achieve Diamond Vessel status, our boats had to undergo a rigorous inspection by the Department of Tourism. The comprehensive inspection involves checking everything from the structural integrity of the boat to the condition of the electrical system.

Why is safety important?

Safety is important for a number of reasons. First, it is important for your own safety. When you are on a boat, you are in a confined space, and there are a number of unforeseen things that can occur. For example, there could be a collision with a rock, or potential housefires.
If you are not on a safe houseboat, you could be injured..

Second, safety is important for your loved ones accompanying you on the journey. If you are on a boat with your family and friends, and the boat is not safe, then they could be injured. By selecting a safe boat, you protect them from harm and avoid exposing them to unnecessary risks.

Lastly, safety directly impacts the reputation of the company you are cruising with. A company associated with unsafe boats is likely to face reduced bookings and potential harm to its business, while also endangering the passengers.

At SpiceRoutes we are fully committed to prioritising your safety. Our aim is to have you relax and enjoy your cruise, without having to worry about your safety.
