We were to stay at Fantasia in the first week of October but unfortunately our plan had to be cancelled due to the flood situation. Must commend the professionalism of the houseboat owners for maintaining full transparency and communicating with us as soon as the lines were restored. They got back to us regarding our booking and completely refunded any... More

This guests comments are of great value to us. We like to be honest, transparent and helpful even in the most difficult situations. The floods made life diifficult for a period of time here. We suffered little damage but are taking the opportunity to refurbish and renovate our accommodation and infrastructure in order to welcome visitors to our deluxe houseboats.... More

I had the option of booking our 8-day Kashmir holiday through MakeMyTrip as I had done for previous holidays or try something different. A houseboat stay at Srinagar was a must. Pouring through reviews online, I was lucky to come across a detailed review for Fantasia Houseboats on Nigeen Lake, smaller and quieter than the famous Dal Lake but full... More

Although Srinagar and its Dal and Nigeen lakes are known for the thousands of houseboats lining their banks, as first-time tourists, my girlfriend and I were very skeptical about staying in one. Although they all looked beautifully decorated in photographs on Tripadvisor, we had heard horrors stories of musty, damp rooms with feet-scented decades old carpeting. So we did our... More

Spanking clean, beautifully crafted with artistic woodcarving all around and perched at an amazing location giving you a beautiful view of complete nageen lake. If you want to sit for introspection away from any hustle bustle of dal lake and hotels in city area, it is highly recommended. Rahimbhai, Anna, Farooq n team are always available for any help and...

Fantasia is a fantastic houseboat and the owner is gem of a person. Even his staff is well behaved and cooperative. We were 11 and took an entire houseboat. It was clean and felt homely.
