The beautiful Premium Kolu Group Of Houseboats and the beauty of cobalt Kashmir Dal lake are forever ready to arrest you and make you proud that you are a part of this magnificient country India Kolu Group Of Houseboats was built in the year 1940 and ever since then we are pleased to be at your service. The name of our first house boat was Shellanne which was built by Mohammad Kolu in the year1940.Later on,in the year 1944, two more houseboats came in to operations which were supposed to be the very first special class houseboats in Dal Lake. These two special class house boats were built by a joint venture of four Kolu brothers and they were named as Shabash and New Shellanne respectively. The four brother's joint venture consisted of Ahmed Kolu, Jumma Kolu, Ghulam Qudir Kolu and Mohammad Ramzan Kolu. It was in the year 1962, the very first Deluxe Luxury House boat was built in Dal lake which was named as Pride Of Kashmir which earned a lot of fame and is still a pride to the owners. Kolu group of house boat is an epitome of the family bond and as a result the management through the years are been taken over by the following generations. At present we are proud of announcing the largest number of deluxe luxury house boats in Kashmir. The entire management is taken care of by the management of Kolu brother which is leaded by Nazir Ahmed Kolu and brothers.

My boyfriend and I stayed on the houseboat during the recent Chinese New Year holidays and this was simply mindblowing. We loved the beautiful interiors of the room and the impeccable service from the staff. It felt like we were pampered with every modern luxury right in the heart of nature. Waking up every morning was a new experience!

My family and I experienced the cultural immersion with picturesque surrounding Kashmir, an ideal getaway from the buzzing city life back home. Above all, we were pampered by Mr Hilal's tender loving care and the quality of kashmiri cuisine. A highly recommended relaxing holiday if one is looking for an unique and 'holistic' experience, without having to burn a hole in your pocket 👍 Jay Singapore
