It was our last day of our seven days vacation in Kashmir. Staying at houseboat was a totally new experience for all of us. Honestly, we didn't expect much from the houseboat. But to our surprise, this house boat was big, well furnished, well equipped with things like TV, fridge, books, snacks. It also included an hour of the beautiful... More

The front of the houseboats open up to a marvellous view of the mountains, beautiful landscapes all around, a perfect location for photography. Rooms were neat and clean and very much spacious & comfortable, with... More

The food is also very good but variety is very less. In breakfast the choice is too limited and the dinner is a fixed menu veg meal. However... More

Bathrooms are spacious, though requires some modifications w.r.t bathing as bathing can be done only in the bathtub. There is no water exit in the surface of the bathroom, so if... More

Firstly, the houseboat in situated in a peaceful location away from the front of the lake where there is too much rush. Secondly, the rooms are quite elegant, traditionally decorated and have an old world charm. They are spacious as well. Bathroom is clean and spacious too, except for the bathtub area which needs a bit of an upgrade! I... More
