So relaxing
The best thing we did in India the houseboat exceeded expectations. The facilities were amazing, the staff brilliant and the tour fun. The food was the best we had and the whole experience really good value. We only wish we had booked for longer.

8/10 Very good

We had a family vacation (6 Adults and 2 Children) in Xandari River Escapes. It was a first time experience for all of us and was indeed a great one!. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The boat was clean, food was good, the backwater was amazing. A few points that could have been taken care off - lighting on the boat could be better - there were too many lizards in the night and eating dinner at the common area was difficult, the men on board could be a little more polite and more friendlier, the check out time is 9 am (exact) - this could be extended a little bit more. Overall a good vacation and a great experience! Thanks
