About the property:

Discovery is a 65 ft. long, 16ft wide and 18ft high, is the first boat on the backwaters to be completely eco-friendly. The house boat is the ultimate way to cruise the backwaters through this green fascinating area. Discovery has a unique design retaining the feel of a typical Kerala rice barge blended with contemporary tropical architecture.Discovery comprises 1 double bedroom and an identically sized living room both air-conditioned, spacious dressing room & bathroom. The living room can be converted into a twin bedroom. Upstairs on the deck there is a large covered sitting area and a sun deck. Discovery comes with its own chef who will prepare delicious meals, based on the recipes of The Malabar House, Keralan and Mediterranean inspired cuisine is available. Meals are taken either on the privacy of your A/C living-dining room or upstairs on the deck overlooking the lake. Discovery is an Eco-friendly houseboat with contemporary desi,gn and silent electric motors for exploring the quieter backwaters.They took a traditional kettuvallam (stitched hull) and added a well-insulated aluminium-plywood superstructure, an energy-efficient LPG engine and two silent electric motors (front and back). A battery bank allows these to be charged during the day and is used for light and power at night. And, as the boat is narrower, it can slip through the backwater hinterland away from the standard (and now crowded) Alleppey cruise. Inside it's stylishly decorated and surprisingly roomy for such a slim boat - the perfect setting to relax in after dark, with a friend or partner.

The bedroom and living room lie in the double-glazed lower deck, built with an insulated sandwich of aluminium, rockwool and plywood. They are protected from direct sunlight by a system of pretty louvred windows and sun sails, meaning a low energy output is required to keep cool.

The bathroom is small but stylish, with piles of fluffy towels and white tiles that contrast beautifully with dark wooden units. It has a shower with hot water provided by the engine's cooling system.
