There are just two rooms on the houseboat: Sukhima (happiness) and Lalima (beauty). Both are around 208sq ft and have a private veranda. Indoors, design pays homage to traditional Keralan style: wood-and- cane furnishings are made locally, mural-style Keralan paintings hang on the walls, and there are intricately patterned dhurrie rugs on the teak-wood floor. Bathrooms are modern, with a bath tub, walk-in glass shower and Fabindia bath products. Rooms have an iPod dock, insect-proof window screens, air-conditioning and a safe.
