We had planned for a family trip to Kashmir in October 2014 and started planning for it some time in August. After much surfing around we found Fantasia on the net and made the bookings. Unfortunately, the floods hit Kashmir and as devastating as the news was, we got really apprehensive of traveling with 5 senior citizens within a month... 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. 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
