The glorious vessel has been converted from a rice barge into a contemporary floating hotel exploring the quiet backwaters.
The Lotus has clean lines and much use of teak, it is bright and fun and fresh. The chef serves delicious meals. There are two large bedrooms with teak floors, cheery colours, large observation windows, i-pod docks, mosquito netting, fans and silent air-conditioning. Each room has a private sit-out and en-suite airy bathrooms (showers).
Relax in the spacious indoor sitting room, by the bar and on the glorious large sun deck for al fresco dining and soaking up the sun - a perfect vantage point for watching a way of life that has changed little over the years.
Undisturbed by the sound of traffic, the birdlife is exceptional and dining under the stars feasting on delicious, freshly caught seafood whilst listening to fish jumping, is magical.
There is no better way to explore Kerala and its hidden secrets of the waterways than by boat. The Lotus offers 1 or 2-night cruises with part of each day spent gently cruising and the rest of it ashore, visiting otherwise unreachable temples, villages and local cottage industries.
