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

I had one night on the houseboat but could have spent a week there. It is a place of great beauty and calmness. Rahim and Anna and the staff have created a peaceful space while being readily available to chat and advise on local culture and history. The accommodation and food is excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Fantasia... More

Thanks to Rahim and Anna, we had a wonderful few days on Fantasia Houseboat.

THe meals were great, the accomodation was clean, neat and tidy, everything worked!!

Upon arriving at Fantasia houseboat, I was immediately shocked at how beautiful the location and the boats were. Mr Rahim was very accommodating and full of interesting stories, his English was perfect allowing me to truly enjoy my stay. The decor inside the boat was exquisite with beautiful carvings and a comfortable inside and outside area, perfect for socialising. The... More
