I travelled alone as a woman and on the houseboat I felt very safe and very well looked after.Whenever I needed something the boats men were very helpful and always available for me. The Kashmir cuisine was tasty and I've got nice big portions. It was a good decision to go there and see this unique place.

The staff was friendly and helpful in arranging for transport and also provided good local input on how to work out our travel plan in a good budet friendly manner. They also called a clothes seller to the houseboat and also helped in bargaining and the materials were also good

Had booked a deluxe room for 3 of us here. Ended up having the entire houseboat to ourselves. Very well maintained - clean, spacious and even smelled nice. A nice dining area and a resting area with a television. The food prepared was also very delicious and filling. Had a beautiful view of the lake in the morning. Overall, a... More

I ventured up to Srinagar on the advice of a tourist office in Delhi. They showed me some pictures of a beautiful houseboat and some glowing reviews of the place. It was a gamble but I'm so glad that I went. I was met by a really nice man called Shaffi who drove me through Srinigar (much different to the... More

I have just returned from a 6 night stay on this houseboat. I cannot thank the family enough, not only for the superb accommodation but also for taking such good care of me. Travelling alone, safety can be an issue and not only did I feel safe and respected at all times but the consideration the staff showed in suggesting... More

This houseboat is exquisite with lovely Islamic carved wood panelling but beware, our reservation with booking.com was not honoured and we had to find somewhere else for our last night. It didn't particularly bother us as it was very hot on the boat and a cooler hotel room was more than welcome. Facilities include a private shikara that you can... More

A very warm and welcoming family who provide superb service, delicious homemade Kashmiri food and provide beautiful accommodation on this amazing houseboat. It is definitely the best way to experience Srinagar. We have been fortunate enough to have stayed for 9 nights on this wonderful houseboat and have been treated like royalty. We have been guided to sights in and... More

This houseboat is simply beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.It is also well-located so that it doesn't overlook the road. We had the honeymoon suite, which had a beautiful 4-poster bed in it. Meals are available on board and Saleem is an absolute star -very helpful and kind. The shakira was available for us to row ourselves around the lake or... More
