We got this booking from Make my trip and after we stayed there realized that one should opt for Nigen lake houseboats and not the Dal lake if you need to be away from the rush and enjoy the nature. The hospitality was good and the boat is well maintained. The shikara ride from the parking to the boat is...

Feels good when you get a free shikara ride to get to the houseboat. The entrance is classy and rooms are neat and cosy. Specially the bathroom was very very clean. The bed was not comfortable and the matress can be of much better quality. Food served was prompt and OK. Overall good but not great experience.

cool retreat, cool houseboat, friendly staff, great food. Really clean - also by European standards. And because there is always room for improvement I need to add this: trash on the mainland is a problem. Something will have to be done about it on a "higher" level.... educating children in the local elementary schools is the first step in the...
