We stayed for 2 nights in this houseboat and had a great experience. The view from the Nageen lake from this houseboat was awesome. The shikara rides to and fro from the houseboat was totally worth it. We found westerners staying at the houseboat & we had some interesting converstaions with them over dinner. The food was good though it... More

We loved our two day stay at the Fantasia house boats. The Shikara was waiting for us when we got to the ghat. As soon we stepped off it, we were greeted by Ms. Anna. We had a gorgeous view from the HB. It is so peaceful, quiet and serene on Nigeen lake. Hilal and Bilal the caretakers made sure... More

We stayed at Fantasia for 4 nights. We were a group of 4 families with kids and elderly people. Main reason to book Fantasia was that it had road access, but unfortunately it was not the case. it is connected to a road on the back side, but its not practically approachable. We had hired a tempo traveler and it... More

We thank this guest for his positive comments about Fantasia Houseboats - its cleanliness, views, service and food. Regarding the back road access issue, the guest had his own driver who refused to come to the backdrop despite the guest and my requests. It is unfortunate that the guest primarily cites his experiences with shikara walas to give Fantasia an... More

We stayed here in August 2013. The houseboat is clean and very well maintained. I was apprehensive about staying on a houseboat as I read couple of reviews about poor hygiene. But this one wasn't like any of those. It is situated on Nageen lake and the view from the deck is fantastic! Enjoyed the shikara ride and It was... More

We stayed our last night in Kashmir at Fantasia houseboat. I had told Mr Rahim before that all's well that ends well and truly the icing of our Kashmir trip was our stay at Fantasia. I agree with Mr Rahim that the view from the deck of the houseboat is the best in Srinagar. We spent our afternoon and evening... More

We spent our happiest and most beautiful day of our trip to Kashmir in the Fantasia Houseboat. No matter, whatever thanks we give to Mr. Rahim and Mr. Bilal for their hospitality, it would be less to suffice what they did for us. The shopping experience within the houseboat was excellent, we got some exquisite original material. I find this... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If your dreams include a sojourn on a houseboat in Kashmir, kingfishers darting between the blossoming lotus, herons and moorhens darting for fish, and snowcapped mountains in full view, then imagine yourself on Fantasia Houseboat on fresh, unpolluted Nigeen Lake. Fantasia Houseboat combines modern amenities, such as electricity and hot showers, with a good food and friendly service. Each well-decorated bedroom has a private bathroom. Fantasia has a beautiful dining area and a lounge with a new flat screen TV. There are great views across the Lake and onto the lower Himalayas from the veranda and the garden. The sunset views are wonderful. There is a well-maintained pretty private garden for the use of guests. We have a 24 hour power back up and clean water supply. Accommodation, sightseeing, and trekking are all available for your enjoyment. Ski arrangements for Gulmarg in the winter can also be organised. We look forward to meeting you and offering you our best hospitality. ... more   less
