houseboat sauvernigam in the backwaters of kerala

With two bedrooms and a Gold Star Rating, the Sauver Nigam led the field in responsible tourism when it won "The most Eco Friendly tourism project" in 1999, establishing a benchmark for certifying all other boats plying the pristine backwaters.

A mix of traditional and modern design assures your every comfort whilst not detracting from the authentic feel of a traditional "Kettuvallum" (rice barge). Built in the traditional style, not one nail has been used in the construction of the Sauver Nigam. Each plank of wood is joined to the next with strong coir rope then coated with caustic black resin obtained from boiled cashew kernels and fish oils.

Relax and lounge on Sauver Nigam's upper deck where you have 360 degree views of the world as it drifts slowly by and downstairs the dining table will be laid for you to taste the unforgettable cuisine of the South, lovingly prepared by our chef.
