          An ubrupt ending!”
          The house boat was lovely, if a little shabby and in need of a deep clean. The staff were extremely friendly, but our Captain/Chef was really difficult to understand so we struggled with communication. However, he made himself very clear when he asked for a tip at the end!! I find it a little unsavoury when someone sticks their hand out expecting it and actually going as far as saying 'tip please'!! There is such a thing as etiquette. We had already paid twice as much as we should when he moored up and suggested we pick up prawns and fish for dinner (we assumed these were part of the meal we'd already been charged for, but they weren't).The noise levels from the staff when we were trying to sleep at 10.30/11pm at night were also unacceptable - they were heavy footed and chatting away, which felt very inconsiderate, especially when they woke us up at 6.30 doing thier morning ablusions! WE were just eating breakfast and they had us back at the original pick up by 8.30am, not midday.

          Got a really crappy houseboat than the one that i actually booked, all other houseboats were playing music n ppl were dancing but soma houseboat has got no piece of entertainment, i really envied those ppl in othere houseboats who were having a great time. Save yourself n go for some other houseboats

          Kerala Backwaters is gorgeous - just don't use SOMA Houseboats”
          I don't post reviews very often, so to be objective here are the positives and negatives + The tour through the Kerala backwaters is gorgeous, it should be on your places to visit + the food cooked on the boat was very tasty, the vegetables in particular were fresh/delicous I expect every houseboat will deliver on the above, our overall experience with SOMA was awful : - The captain was motivated by side 'extras' and stopped by a couple of very ordinary stores and pressured us to buy $8 beer / $40 fish etc - The boat began at 2pm (we came @1PM) and docked at 5:30pm and began 8am and ended at 9am, considerably shorter than most tours - the boat docked next to a ROAD, with traffic whizzing by and anyone could have easily walked into the boat - Other boats were docked in prettier secure locations No one picked / dropped us from SOMA - it seems to be a 'digital booking front' that sub-contracts at lowest prices to local house-boats. Avoid them.
