Kochi: A floating restaurant, the largest of its kind in India, will start operating here over the weekend, it was announced on Thursday.

The two-storied cruise boat-cum-floating restaurant ‘Majastique-1’ was constructed at a cost of Rs.4.5 crore.

The cruise boat-cum-floating restaurant has been furnished to match global standards, with facilities including dedicated party and lounge areas, a space for holding business conferences and a specialty restaurant, said Sajan Mathew, managing director of Majas Travels, Tours and Logistics, ahead of the commencement of operations scheduled for the coming Saturday.

The promoter of Majastique-1 — Majas Travels, Tours and Logistics — claimed that it would be the largest cruise boat-cum-floating restaurant in the country.

The boat will conduct two cruises per day — the lunch cruise and the sunset cruise. The three-hour lunch cruise will cost a person Rs.1,500 while the sunset cruise will cost Rs.1,000.

In India and other select countries, content-streaming platform Netflix is testing a new mobile-only subscription plan that would only cost users $3.63 a month (Rs 251).

The basic Netflix streaming plan in India starts from $7.27 (Rs 500) and the test plan would slash the existing subscription plan exactly by half.

“We will be testing different options in select countries, where members can, for example, watch Netflix on their mobile device for a lower price and subscribe in shorter increments of time,” The Verge quoted Netflix as saying on Friday.

Although it remains unclear as of now, but the statement from the content-streaming platform hints that it could start offering weekly or bi-weekly subscription options alongside or instead of monthly plans.
