Very cosy atmosphere and excellent food served in the warmth of the stylish living room. I stayed there for 10 days and I missed nothing. The rooms are big enough for three people, with cupboards and wall to wall carpets. Living and Dining rooms are quiet and offer the luxury of the olden times.

Wangnoo Paradise is run by a quite and decent Hindi, English, French, and German speaking gentleman Mr. Ghulam Wangnoo, a fourth generation boathouse owner, while other Wangnoo boathouses are run by extended Wangnoo family.

Absolutely fabulous experience! The rooms are clean and there is exceptionally good wifi! Food was also very nice and the location is just perfect! It is not noisy like Dal Lake so you can sleep in peace (the beds are very comfy) and you can also take a ride on a "gondola" like boat and see the floating gardens. The... More

Located in Nigeen Lake, which is a quieter and more serene place compared to Dal lake. The houseboat is large and has 4 rooms with attached baths and a lobby area. Service and food quality was superb. Service provided by Mr. Azad needs a specail mention. The management made sure we felt at home and took good care of us.... More

Its located in Nigeen Lake which is very quite and picturesque. Better than Dal Lake on all accounts. The service is fabulous and the all rooms have lake and mountain vioews as it is standing at an ideal position. Thanks to the staff and service quality for making our stay WOW. Will visit again if get a chance.

This Isn't just a houseboat but a fine piece of artwork also. The moment you enter the houseboat, all you see is great woodwork with fine art on it and kashmiri carpets. Rooms are more than comfortable, the boat guy is ultra helpful and the owner is a charming person who's very friendly and helpful too. The food was great.... More
