We have stayed on the Royal Dandoo and loved every minute. We were so well looked after. We were there in Autumn 2017 and the weather was warm so we had no need of a heater. Sorry as I do not know if there is a heater or not.

Dear Sajid, During my stay, I did get there after sunset a couple of times,but not as late as 9pm. If you arrange it with the hotel, they will be able/willing to send you a shikara (small traditional boat) at any time.
