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

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
