We had a great stay at the Oasis Guest House in Srinagar. Located close to the Nigeen Lake and against the backdrop of the mountains, the Oasis Guest House with its well furnished and decorated rooms and great views is a perfect place to enjoy your holiday.
I visited Srinagar with my family and stayed there for 5 nights and also a night at their houseboat on the Nigeen lake. On their suggestion, we took the Shikara ride early in the morning from their houseboat on the Nigeen lake. This is a great way of experiencing a ride through the backwaters connecting the Nigeeen to Dal lake – especially a nice way to visit the early morning floating markets.
The hospitality and friendliness that we experienced at the Oasis Guest House was indeed one of the best parts of our trip and a great experience. Manzoor, Neelofar and Nazeer were really great hosts; they organized our trip very well, including the visits to Gulmarg, Sonamarg, stay at the houseboat and the Shikara rides, airport pick-ups, drops and did everything to make sure we had a comfortable stay.
The food definitely needs a special mention - it was awesome! We were looking for authentic Kashmiri food and couldn't ask for more. The conversations that we had with Manzoor, Neelofar and Nazeer – be it about travel or the local people – gave us a better idea about the place itself and its culture.
Also, my wife and I would like to thank them for the complimentary stay after we returned from our trek. I would love to stay at the Oasis Guest House again and would definitely recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Kashmir.
