On the glistening backwaters of Kerala on a romantic houseboat
As we stepped aboard our houseboat in Allepey, we were so excited about spending our first Christmas together as a married couple. The lovely crew immediately presented us with flower garlands and Santa hats before leading us to our rose-petal adorned double bedroom, complete with a sparkling ensuite shower room and thankfully our own air-conditioning. Out on the deck lay a crisp white daybed scattered with yet more rose petals, a lounge area and our favourite place, the dining area, where our crew served up the most tantalisingly delicious dishes for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The next three days consisted of everything a honeymooning couple could possibly desire – snuggling on the daybed whilst sailing along the glistening coconut tree lined backwaters, watching the local fishermen catch a plethora of freshwater fish, eating beautifully prepared local delicacies, and enjoying spectacular sunsets, whilst sipping champagne from the comfort of our very own private boat. Honeymoon perfection.
Honeymoon Date: 23 Dec 2013
Ask the crew to help you pick some fresh seafood from the local fishermen. Fresh fish doesn't come more fresh than this and the onboard chef will prepare it using the finest local ingredients.
