The Oasis Srinagar

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 27, 2013

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.

Still searching for better words to describe the wonderful experience of our stay in Oasis homestay. this place is not only for someone who want to remain close to the Srinagar city but also for someone who wants to remain out in open , and stay far away from the crowd to enjoy the scenic view of the mountains...chirping of the birds in the morning was a bliss in itself..

It was one of the best choice as everything was at its best and we couldn't have asked for more to make our trip memorable.
We would like to thank 3 people who made our trip so memorable.
Firstly, Mr. Manjoor who was very kind, friendly and made us feel very comfortable right from the minute we first interacted with him - starting from booking, arranging for cab,arranging our stay at the house boats, planning out our itinerary, taking care of all our needs till dropping us at the airport.
Next we would like to thank Ms Neelofar who prepared such delicious Kashmiri food that everyone loved it. The quantity was more for us but we couldn't resist eating till such time when we noticed a slight paunch and we thought maybe we should take a walk on the garden. Neelofar ,we would really like to thank you for your wonderful food and the warmth thats been showered on us..

And last but not the least Mr Nazeer who tirelessly took us on an extensive tour both inside and outside the city .He was a wonderful gentleman, a man of patience with an ever smiling face.

This is definitely one of the best homestays ....I would def recommend it to all my friends !! Thank you folks for making this summer very memorable.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor bedroom ..that view from there is just spectalcular

We stayed at this beautiful Homestay for 3nights and loved every bit of it ! Right from the time we were picked up from the airport,everything was well organised and relaxed..loved the home cooked food and the rooms were super clean and had a great view of the mountains and lots of greenery around..our 2 year old daughter loved to hangout with the entire oasis family :) loved their garden also.

Location wise it's near to hazratbal and not too far from the dal lake & the Mughal garden..located in a quiet residential locality

Would love to go back to this cute little Homestay run by the Kashmiri-Aussie Couple (Manzoor & Niloufer)...

The Oasis is a fantastic guest house, suburban in its spirit with cosmopolitan hosts in Manzoor and Neelofar who seem to continuously perfect the art of providing excellent service. We stayed for 3 nights and 4 days, had several meals and breakfast at the guesthouse - working in the guesthouse and travelling around Srinagar. Apart from the fantastic rooms, bathrooms, reliable internet and hot water supply - you will find in in your hosts - great culture, warmth and familial comfort, a microcosm of Kashmir's hospitality and its people!

We strongly recommend the Oasis for families, friends, couples and anyone who seeks space, escape and comfort, and at the same time a place that isnt very far away from the heart of Srinagar. No smoking, no alcohol and sensitivity to the local people and their culture makes you a better guest, and lets your perspective expand, we were more truly able to indulge in Kashmir and Srinagar being able to experience its joys more clearly than through mere tourist goggles. The Oasis Guesthouse had a big part to play in this, and a quiet Eid weekend with streets silenced by protest and the army didnt push our moods down as much as it should have.

P.S: If you are staying here and like being talkative, pester Manzoor and Neelofar - they have fantastic cuisine, ideas, anecdotes, perspectives and experiences to share! Looking forward to again, this time with family.

Nestled away in the lush greens with a picturesque view of the mountains, The Oasis Guest House is truely the best way to treat yourself with a perfect holiday. Warm, cozy, immaculate rooms with handcrafted furniture, best views to treat your eyes with, absolutely divine home cooked food, warm and friendly hospitality by Neelofer and Manzoor... aah !! cant get better than this. Our honeymoon holiday was perfectly planned and organised by Neelofer and Manzoor...Such lovely generous couple with whom we could have a cuppa conversation about any topic under the sun...and neelofer.. thanks for teaching me how to make a perfect Cuppa of Kahwa...we enjoy it every day now.. :)
We even stayed a night at the house boat owned by the couple. the best experience ever is to wake up to the sounds for birds chirping, sit with a cuppa on the deck at sunrise with lotuses in full bloom all around.... and a romantic shikara ride into the sunset.
Picture Perfect!!!
Looking forward for our trekking holiday to laddakh n leh with Neelofer and Manzoor soon.
Cheers!!

We stayed at the Oasis Guest House, Srinagar for 3 nights and 4 days. I think the single biggest defining factor of our stay at this boutique property was the warm and engaging hospitality offered by our hosts and its husband-wife proprietor duo, Neelofar and Manzoor.

Generous to the fault, offering stimulating conversation on a host of topics and excellent satvik food offerings coupled with flawlessly personal service, our hosts have truly converted this quaint Srinagar property into an outstanding B&B of international standards, suitable for rest and recreation in Srinagar, or even a pit stop on way to Leh/ Manali.

The place, which is tastefully designed and decorated, is located in serene surroundings, allowing one to listen to the chirpings of the birds and be alone with their thoughts. The place is located on the approachable fringes of civilization, allowing one to easily access the lakes of the city & the markets, while simultaneously escape from the daily joys and sorrows of city hustle-bustle.

Highly recommend and champion this boutique property, as an oasis for the body, mind the soul!
