Private houseboats are the most common options available in Alleppey. It gives you a very sophisticated experience because you have the entire boat and on board staff to yourself. You don’t have to share the amenities like living room dining hall etc. with other families. Private houseboats provide you with more privacy and safety as only your family and staff will be present on the houseboat. You also get to customise routes and food menu. On the downside private houseboats can be expensive especially when there are more number of people.
Sharing houseboats in Alleppey are great budget friendly option for those wishing to experience of houseboats. Imagine living on a floating hotel with the view of the beautiful backwaters outside. That for you, is the sharing houseboat experience. Each family on the houseboat can book different rooms as you would in a hotel. You will have to share the dining and living area. It will take you down the same route as a private houseboat would, although customisation will not be possible. The cost compared to its counterpart is much lower. Making it very affordable for families.
On the whole both these houseboat types will give you a great experience of the Alleppey backwaters. Your preferences and budget is what needs to decide which one would be appropriate for you.
