I remember the first time I saw a houseboat. It was in a movie called "Jab jab phool khile" As a child I was mesmerized by the beauty of Kashmir as well as the concept of huge boats being converted into luxurious houses. Since then it was a dream to visit Kashmir and to stay in one of these luxurious houseboats. This year thanks to Duke travel agency and Peacock houseboats my dream came true. Situated on Nagin lake away from the hustle and bustle of Dal lake stands peacock houseboat with all its might. Words are not enough to describe the elegance this houseboat holds. Intricate wooden works all over the boat. With spacious, luxurious,fully furnished,clean rooms and washroom. To my amazement we received 24 hours high speed internet as well as hot water services. And what should I say about the generous hospitality we received from the owner of the houseboat Mr Manzoor ji. He took care of us like we are his own family. His only concern was whether we are enjoying to the fullest or not. Being a Bengali who was born and raised in Varanasi my food habits are quite different than typical average Bengalis. By evening I started craving for pakoras and I somehow mentioned it to mazoor ji. He immediately produced some crispy golden brown pakoras which were too delicious to leave. Manzoor ji even made sure to ask about my food choices as I don't like eating too much non veg. Every food item served to us was hot and home made. The taste was lipsmackingly satisfying. Manzoor ji served us(family of three) food worth serving (a family of 10). The calm water of the lake, the seren environment. Overall the houseboat experience was so great that I can live with its memories for the rest of my life. Thanks to peacock houseboat, manzoor ji and Duke travel. P.s we booked via travel agent but were later informed that direct online booking are also done.

Very bad experience. No water and current overnight. People kept coming and going from the houseboat all the time. No privacy. Very congested and closed off. Bathrooms also not fully functional. Best to avoid.

Amazing stay I had a wonderful stay at peacock houseboats. The location of the houseboat is just amazing. You can just sit in the Terrance sip the tons of kehwa witness the mesmerising views of Nigeen lake and watch the life going by on the lake. The service by Mr.Tanveer was really great. He was ready to help even midnight. My old age parents have habit of having hot water during early morning. Although the electric kettle is banned in almost all the houseboats but Mr Tanveer made sure for my parents to deliver hot water during early morning time. One night is definitely not enough at this houseboat. They helped us with reasonable shikara ride rates. They organised tours for us in kashmir. The driver organised was really decent guy. The hotels they suggested were really nice. I hope to come to this place soon

5 Star Service from Peacock Houseboats. Kashmir trip is incomplete without a houseboat stay. We were in dilemma whether to stay at Dal Lake or Nigeen. We opted for Nigeen Lake it was the best decision we could have ever made. Nigeen Lake is serene calm and beautiful. We choose peacock houseboats. There were 04 of us so we booked a family houseboat package with them. The houseboat consisted of 2 rooms bedrooms with separate dining, sitting, balcony and a terrace. The houseboat was very well decorated with all the modern amenities. We wanted to stay longer but the houseboat was already booked for other dates. The food was prepared as per our choice which is very rare in hotels. The view from the houseboat is eye catching. They maintained high standards of hygiene & comfort. Behind the houseboat there is a beautiful garden where one can go for morning and evening walk. The service was top notch with smiling face. You will always feel welcomed in this houseboat. Above all Kashmir is such a beautiful place to visit and properties like peacock houseboats makes it more beautiful and worth it, That you would want to travel again and again. Thank you.

Just awesome and seamless experience right from the start. Yaqoob (the owner) has been very helpful in not just arranging everything but also all sorts of information about srinagar in general. And the house boat itself is very tastefully done and managed. Food, needless to mention was awesome too. Highly recommended !

I would recommend the best houseboat to stay here. Mr.Farooq who greeted and managed everything very well.The kind hospitality, comfort and hygiene of the houseboat was really remarkable. Also the food was so delicious. I would say 10/10 as the houseboat is located in the nigeen lake which is not so commercial like dal lake..very quiet, peace and sirene.

Stayed here for 1 night with family and deeply regret not staying here any longer. Nigeen Lake is clean, beautiful, and an easy choice to immerse into a serene experience alongside a home-like feeling. We stayed in a 2 Bedroom houseboat which is supersized, with a nice deck overlooking the lake, clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Manzoor Bhai is a kind hearted person who did everything he could despite being unwell. We had asked for a non-veg dinner so he had prepared Chicken gravy, Dal, Rice & Veggies setup nicely in style at the Dinner table. This was by far the most memorable experience throughout our stay in Kashmir. He had also prepared a sumptuous breakfast the next day. Thank you Manzoor Bhai for your kind hospitality and we hope to meet you again in the future. I strongly recommend staying at Peacock Houseboat for an experience like no other!

We stayed in peacock houseboats for 2 nights, just at the arrival we were welcome with the kahwa. We were lucky and blessed to stay in this houseboat. It was our anniversary they made surprise Arrangement for our anniversary. The houseboat is located in Nigeen lake which is quitter then busy dal lake. The winds the cold breeze the morning sunrises the evening sunset shikara rides is just the poetic world. I regretted staying in hotels. This place has all my heart.

I stayed here for three nights with my family and friends. We were provided 4 rooms. The rooms were spacious. with neat and clean and bathrooms. The food is excellent. We were provided proper Jain and veg food. Since some of my family members were jain so we had requested Jain food upfront. The place is beautiful. You have a view of mountains and lake from the balcony. The service provided by Tanveer/Manzoor and other helpers were excellent. Thank you peacock houseboats.
