The boat

In Malayam, suite names Sukhima and Lalima mean ‘happiness’ and ‘beauty’ respectively, but both spaces are equally appealing. Each showcases the lively local style: splashes of neon brights, a painting in the style of the temple murals and hand-embroidered rugs – teak and cane furnishings add a colonial air. The furnished private veranda ensures restful views and romantic seclusion.

As Kerala's specialty cuisine is seafood, expect the most aromatic and sumptuous meals served freshly as the location of your choice. The on-board chef cooks fresh seafood caught right from the water and marinated with the world-famous Kerelan spices. 


Rooftop sun deck and indoor sitting room. In rooms: private veranda, iPod dock, air-conditioning and a safe. Be ready to switch off: the boat is a WiFi-free zone.


Dining, which is served either outdoor or indoor, are skillfully cooked by the chef, who's main speciality is freshly caught seafood. The boat houses an on-board bar.

Why Wayfairer
