Like hotels, houseboats vary in degree of luxury
and have been accordingly graded by the Department of Tourism. A
luxury houseboat, like a luxury hotel has fine furniture, good
carpets and modern bathroom fittings, while the ‘D category’ (the
lowest category) of houseboats, like low-budget hotels, is spartanly
furnished. Like hotels too, houseboats vary widely in their
locations. Some overlook the main road, others look out onto lotus
gardens and yet others face tiny local markets and villages, all
right in the middle of the lake! All houseboats, regardless of
category, have highly personalized service. Not only is there always
a "houseboy" for every boat, but the owner and his family are never
far away. The cost per day of hiring a houseboat includes all meals
and free rides from the houseboat to the nearest jetty and back, as
no houseboat on the lakes is directly accessible from the banks.
