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. The chef took all our tantrums and cooked as we wanted, you must must must try his mutton biryani and dudhi (Lauki/ bottle gourd) ki... More

For anyone who goes to Srinagar, a stay in houseboat for atleast a night is recommended. I have not been to more than one houseboat - I dont think I needed it either. I went by the reviews on TripAdvisor and it did not let me down. Fantasia is an amazing place to say, thanks to the wonderful hosts Anna... More

Ok, here is a rather overdue review of our fantastic stay in Fantasia houseboat at the serene Nigeen Lake on April 19th, 2014. We were a group of seven, with two over the age of 65 years and two under the age of ten. All of us were apprehensive about almost everything during our travel to Kashmir. To make matters... More

It was a reference stay from a friend , well what to say , it was my first visit to Srinagar and right at the airport Mr Raheem the owner came to pickup. I had to purchase some medicines and he was out of the way to help me out. What to say of the location, this was out of... More

The houseboat was really clean and very beautiful, we loved everything about it.... More

Just back from Srinagar and if you are headed that way, do book yourself at least a couple of nights in Fantasia Houseboat. Extremely clean, well located in Nigeen Lake, with ever smiling and always helpful hosts like Mr. Rahim and Anna - this place is just what is needed to stay in Srinagar. What I really liked about this... More

Staying on a house boat is a must experience when visiting Srinagar. There are plethora of options to choose from. We preferred Nigeen lake over Dal to stay away from the hustle bustle. Fantasia happened to be a good choice. It is not the cheapest option but worth the money you pay. The good - Cleanliness, Comfort, connected to land... More

We stayed at Fantasia Houseboat during last week of June'14 for three nights. It was definitely most memorable part of our entire Kashmir trip. We were a group of nine including three kids and had got the entire houseboat with three bedrooms exclusively for us. I thank Rahim, Anna and their team for going out of the way to make... More

Fantasia is a very good houseboat to stay on. Well furnished, clean rooms and toilets, and a nice common area with books, a television and music system. Docked on Nageen lake away from the crowds at Dal Lake, this is the perfect place to experience the houseboat experience. The staff at the houseboat is very friendly and helpful. Though the... More

We appreciate this guest's very positive comments regarding Fantasia Houseboats and the staff here. I am sorry to hear that he felt that my approach to them was indifferent. It was certainly not my intention to create this impression. The guests had only been in India a few weeks, in Delhi at the hottest time, and it seemed appropriate not... More
