I sincerely wish there were more than 5 stars to be rated... An awesome place to stay in paradise on earth. The owner is a wonderful host, waiting to extend a warm welcome and spend some time with us with some kehwa. The houseboats are very tastefully done up and the staff are extremely helpful and courteous. Overall an excellent... More

We were 2 couples from Bangalore who spent one night at this house boat. Please avoid investing in this property (2500 per night- not worth it). We had made our reservations 4 months before our visit, with complete payment made to the owner (Mr. Farooq). Initial response was ok via emails, which made me recommend this place to my cousin...

We highly recommend Fantasia for comfort, cleanness, food, service, peace, views and great enjoyment. A fantastic houseboat on beautiful Nagin Lake. Thank you to Mr Rahim and all his staff for a great stay this week.

We highly recommend this place. We arrived in sunlight across the lake to a warm welcome to a beautifully decorated haven of peace called Fantasia. Lovely rooms and views, great beds, clean rooms and lovely vegetarian food too. We spent 4 nights and explored Kashmir. The evenings on the houseboat were relaxing and fun. This is the houseboat to chose... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights and had a very good time. The houseboat is well cared for and very clean with beautiful decoration. We found the food and service very good. The views from the houseboat are the BEST in Srinagar we think. Mr Rahim and his staff performed perfect hospitality for my family of 8 with... More

My 19 year old son and I spent three great days in Srinagar and sourrounding, staying all three nights in Fantasia Houseboat. The boat is a beauty, lying on the shores of beautiful and tranquil Nigeen Lake. Rahim Langoo and Anna were fantastic hosts, and made our stay and the trips into the area a beautiful experience. The rooms were... More

It is an amazing place to stay. The best thing is the View from the houseboat featuring the beautiful lake below the mountains. We were there for 2 nights and owner Mr. Rahim and his friend Anna made sure that we had a pleasant stay. The food was excellently prepared and being on the less busy Nigeen lake it was... More

Driver's bed would be set up in drawing bedroom. full breakfast and dinner for all members in the group. Unlimited shikara crossings as needed. Parking next to the boat. Pros:... More

Fantasia H, Owner at Fantasia Houseboats, responded to this review

I was surprised to read these negative comments by this lady. As they left, after this lady had departed, the remaining members of the family party said how much they had enjoyed their stay and that they wished to make a return visit. During this group's stay there was exceptional snowfall and adverse weather. Despite this difficulty we facilitated all... More

Staying in one of Mr Rahim's houseboats on your visit to Srinagar is a must-do! The house is amazing and comfortable and the staff is adorable and keen to help you all the time. I have been there during the winter, but i believe a visit during summer must be awesome, when you can clearly see the mountains around the... More
