Cruise past palm-fringed villages, casuarina trees, traditional rowboats and secluded islands to lose yourself in the serenity of the flowing river. Sterling Palavelli Godavari’s houseboat ‘name’, will take you for a memorable sail to the vast expanses of Varishta, a tributary of India’s second-largest river Godavari. Unknown to many, this virgin river does not have frequent visitors. This will ensure that you get all the privacy and exclusivity you need to unwind. The best part of the cruise is the short visit to the Sivakodu Lanka island. The peculiar white sand on this island is so soft, you will not stop walking.
The houseboat that can hold up to 45 people, is ideal for wedding, anniversary or birthday celebrations. Corporates who want to break away from the confine of the four walls can also use this space as a floating boardroom by conducting meetings, presentations, conferences or even team outings here. What an amazing way to refresh the mind and get the creative juices flowing.
Tip: Sunset is the ideal time to capture the river at its golden best.
