We were a group of 7 friends and stayed 2 nights in August 2015 in one of Fantasia's houseboats. The rooms were spacious and clean. The houseboat and the veranda were also very nice. Anna and Rahim were excellent hosts. We took a city tour with Anna and she was also a great and very knowledgable guide. I only have... More

Fant-Asia, house boat which feels like Home. It has the Old Rustic look with best of the facilities like attached bathrooms, dining rooms and with best Kashmiri cooks. Located on the Nigeen lake, its the best for people looking for a calm and peaceful experience.

We visited Kashmir in 19th July with my wife and 2 boys. Initially We thought that we would stay Fantasia Houseboat for 2 nights but we changed our stay from 2 nights to 5 nights for the following reasons: - The place is like a jannat. The color of the lake, hills, sky change almost every two hours. You will... More

We arrived as a group of 20 colleagues and friends, tired from about a week and half of riding the Royal Enfield Bullet through the treacherous Manali - Leh - Srinagar route, but when we arrived here late in the evening at Fantasia, the fragrant Kashmiri Kahwa tea and the warm reception from our hosts Rahim and Anna helped wash...

The place was just amazing. I was a bit unsure when we were told we were going to live on a houseboat but I should say that this place was just perfect for a first time experience. Right from Cleanliness to Hospitality, they covered everything very well. Kudos to the Guys who run the place and especially the cooks. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, we were a group of 20 people. Rahim and Anna were excellent hosts and made sure that everything was arranged perfectly! The rooms are great, the house boat is extremely clean and well kept. Had a fantastic time over all. Nigeen lake was cleaner and more peaceful than Dal lake.

I recently visited Srinagar for the first time with my college friends (both Indians and foreigners) and the experience aboard Fantasia was nothing short of a dream come true. Nigeen Lake is very picturesque- whether out for a sunset Shikara ride, or admiring the views from the boat balcony with a cup of Kahwa, this place has a real charm.... More

Amazing houseboat. I can't think of a better way to enjoy the region. Here are my highlights: - Anna, the co-owner of the boat, is awesome. She was an amazing guide and will take you anywhere (for a modest fee) and give you amazing history/context of the places. Take her advice 99% of the time. - Raheem, the other co-owner,... More

I had a great stay at Fantasia Houseboat and mr. Rahim. The place is really peaceful, boat is well-kept and Rahim takes good care of you. It's located in the smaller of the two lakes, and that makes it more relaxed. I would recommend this place. They also arrange trips for you if needed and dinner and breakfast are included... More

I recently spent an idyllic three days and nights on the Fantasia houseboat with hosts Rahim and Anna. It was perfect bliss with views across the beautiful Lake Nigeen to the imposing mountains beyond. The traditional ways of life on and around the lake are a rare treasure in these frantic ever changing lives many of us now lead. I... More
