The occasion was to surprise my mother for her 50th birthday. Had decided to spend it on a house boat as it was one of her dreams that were unfulfilled. Called the top ten on trip advisor and a call to captain Hameed proved the reviews right. Simple, soulful and a caring personality. We booked the suite and he had... More

We stayed in the Royal Suite for a night. It is huge, luxurious, with a private balcony (though dont expect privacy, because of shikaras passing by in the lake). The stay was comfortable. Bathrooms are clean, with hot running water in the mornings. Nigeen lake is quiet and better than Dal is that sense. However, the location is far from... More
