The houseboat is very comfortable and the butler showkat was very helpful n friendly. Food was ok and the cook followed our request.so we can request what to eat. The room is spacious but the water heater only worked in the morning. So far staying here is one of the best experience we got.

The boat is beautiful and it is situated a bit away from traffic noise which is nice. Food offered at the boat is a bit monotonous and of course more expensive than in restaurants but then again - it's convenient to eat there once you have returned from the city. Wifi is quite good. Shikara ride was peaceful and had... More
