Our visit to Kashmir began just as news of increasing water levels and flood predictions started trickling in. Needless to say we were a little apprehensive of how our stay would pan out. We couldn't have asked for a more fitting start and end to our Srinagar trip. The 3 nights spent at the houseboat was sheer indulgence....what with being... More

At first I planned to stay only for three nights but I decided very soon to extend my stay for another 6 nights. Fantasia HB is a peaceful safe haven with a wonderful view on the mountains. It is quiet there and you can watch birds like kingfishers and eagles quite close up to you. The houseboat is clean and... More

I went for my Honeymoon on 16th Feb 2015 for 6 nights stay and I left everything on the owner Mr. Rahim to plan including our travel in Kashmir. Mr. Rahim is an educated person having very good knowledge of places and traveller requirements. It was very chilly weather(from -2 C - +5 C) that time, but we never felt... More

I had booked Fantasia houseboat for 3 nights(16th/17th/18th) but unfortunately due to bad weather my flight got cancelled. Mr. Rahim had arranged a cab for my family and the driver kept waiting for us at airport as our flight didn't reach airport and there was no certainty on arrival. Finally, all the flights to Srinagar got cancelled for that day.... More

I hapoened to stay at the Fantasia houseboat during my visit to Srinagar last week, and it was a fantastic experience. We had initially planned to stay there for just two days and then move to some hotel as we had heard that houseboat experience is good just for a day or two. However, the hospitality we received from Mr... More

We would like to thank these guests for their great review. Their appreciation of our hospitality and the home comforts of Fantasia are highly valued. We do find that many of our guests extend their planned stay on our houseboat due to these qualities. Our staff enjoyed having some fun and laughter with their young daughter too. Thank you, and...

I stayed on Fantasia Houseboats in December 2014 for a few days. I hadn't lived on a houseboat before so I had no idea what to expect from it. I was really thrilled to see that this one was beautiful (in its wood carvings and furnishings) without being excessively ornate or impractical. It's more sparsely decorated than some other houseboats... More

I visited fantasia houseboat for my honeymoon in may 2014. The house boat is nice with a garden and good service. But i have one complaint. Mr Rahim overcharged me. He charged me Rs 6000 for one night. But actual fixed rate for deluxe houseboat with breakfast n dinner is Rs 4800 as mentioned on their website http://www.houseboatowners.org/index.php/accomodations This houseboat... More

We are happy to hear this guest enjoyed his honeymoon stay on Fantasia Houseboats. Please be assured that he was NOT OVERCHARGED. In fact his booking was in peak season and our prices have not increased for 4 years. Many deluxe houseboats charge much higher prices for rooms, and Fantasia Houseboats are great value for money in a prime location... More
