After all my survey about the houseboats, I picked up this one for a stay of 4 nights and I would NEVER REGRET . Best place to stay and best view of... More

We stayed three nights at Fantasia, having researched it carefully in advance. We were not disappointed - my husband and I had the large end room and our 18 year old twin daughters the good sized twin room next to us. We were slightly concerned that the Nigeen Lake location would mean we would be isolated from Srinagar’s attractions –... 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

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
