Anyone visiting Kashmir or Srinagar should stay in this property for at least one day, if not more. No words are enough to describe the location and the view from the hotel room. The hotel itself is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Dal Lake. You have a 360 degree view of entire Srinagar and the Dal lake with the background towering mountains.

It is a decent sized property spread of 6 acres with 78 operational rooms. The rooms were advertised 600 sq feet for a Deluxe Dal view (Room no. 1246). It surely looked big as it could easily accomodate us and my 3 children. The size of the bathrooms were awesome with a huge bathtub with a separate shower area where you can stand till eternity to relax your body under the pressure of the warm water. The toiletries provided were of the highest standards. Any request for additional ones were met with promptness. The rooms had everything which one could require like a separate charging dock for charging your pods, pads, phones, cameras. It also had a big 37" LCD TV, a separate sofa which could double up as a bed. The bed itself was huge kingsize and comfortable, not too soft, which allows a good night's sleep. On one side near the exit there is a continuous lawn and one the other side facing the Dal lake you have a small garden. Lots of greenery and beautiful lines of flowers dot the property.

The food quality was very good. Since we had 7 children, we tried the veg pizza for dinner. It surely tasted awesome. The breakfast spread was decent enough, however a bit less compared to other Taj properties.

The staff were most courteous and helpful. Room service was quick and adequate. A special thanks to Iqbal in the reception. There was a slight delay in getting one room for my friend. He was quite forthcoming and tried his best to get it in time. Also a special word to their doorman who was ever smiling and it was a delight chatting with him.

Should definitely stay here in my next trip.

Room Tip: Please choose Dal Lake view rooms only. They charge just a small premium but its worth it.

Spacious rooms and well managed gardens.

Reached Srinagar in afternoon and went for lunch on the Vivanta terrace. It was wonderful experience. Much better than expectation - very nice food and good service.

Room service was excellent. In room dining has good food options for kids e.g. khichadi, french fries, burgers, pizza etc

Missing kids area and few activities to keep people engaged.

Room Tip: With kids, stayed in Ground floor room with nice garden in front.

Beautiful view, tasty food, comfortable rooms. whatever you expect out of your stay in a 5 star hotel, which is in a tourist destination but thats not all. what has been the best experience is the interaction with the staff, especially "Akshay Kaul" My rating for this hotel would have been 3.5 - 4, its only coz of Akshay & rest of the staff and their warm and friendly behavior and help that i give it 5 :)

The location of the property is so exotic that words can't describe. The view from the Hotel is as if a running movie as a new story is happening every moment in the valley of Srinagar on the Dal Lake and you are continuously watching it. As if you are the Bird's Eye on the Dal Lake.

Room Tip: Cottages facing the Lake.

At the time of check in, we were warmly welcomed by the team. After a quick, convenient check-in, we were taken to our rooms.
We had requested for twin beds but due to unavailability, they put extra bed without any charge. Fortunately, the extra bed was as comfortable as the bed in the room.
The best part about the rooms is the view. It is a breathtaking view of the Dal lake. The hotel is peaceful and ideally located

After our stay at Pahalgam hotel ( see review), this seemed like the best hotel ever.

The staff was always smiling, receptive to feedback and happy to help.

The bathroom was large with forest essential toiletries.
they have a heated swimming pool but it still seemed so cold in October!
