Naagin lake is a 20 minute drive from Dal lake. Stayed for one night. We were 5 couples with children. It's truly a 5 star experience. Luxurious interiors and cozy rooms. Great homely food. A must visit if you are in Srinagar. The house boat is centrally heated.

We were there for 1 night and it was enough to remember for the rest of our lives. It's not very often that the hotel staff leaves a stronger impression than the hotel itself. My 2.5 year old daughter was sick and the people there did all they could ensure that she gets well. Mr. Shauqat, and Mr. Nazeer were... More

Not having a clue what to expect, I was totally blown away by whole experience. It was awesome. The views of the lake and the mountains were breathtaking at any time of the day. So peaceful. The evening call to prayer and the colours of the sun setting helped to create a magical experience every day. The boat was incredibly... More

Nice interiors, clean and comfortable stay. Great exhibition and experience of Kashmiri art - carpets, lacquer work, carvings on desks, tables etc. in the houseboat. Homely, tasty food and the attendants took good care. Transport arrangements done for the sightseeing and travel to Gulmarg were excellent. The boat doesn't move but there are shikharas available. Shikhara ride on the Negeen... More
