The houseboat has a picturesque location on the beautiful nigeen lake, away from the crowded dal lake. The owner Mr. Wagnoo is very polite and helpful and the staff muneer and Ayub are very... More

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

I travelled to this destination in April, this year but every time I sat to begin to write about this charming, cool place, something came along & I left it incomplete, promising myself that I will surely complete it before the year...

In October 2014 I revisited Khilona Houseboat after a previous stay in May 2013. Being a guest there certainly sets you in the mood for a vacation in Kashmir. The houseboat interior and the deck are adorned with artistic wood carvings in Kashmiri style - the reception area just like the dining room and the comfortable bedrooms. I also liked... More

The great advantage of Khilona Houseboat is that is stationed in Nageen Lake away from the crowded Dal Lake. It lives up to the star rating. The boat is maintained well . Owner Ghulam Bhai took personal interest to make our stay comfortable. Though located a little away, commuting to the city was not difficult; owner provided free shikhara ride... More

They have their own shikara boats(Nasir Bhai) to travel to House boat from one bank to another. Specialties: 1. Very good wooden interior with lots... More
