Houseboats are unique in the world to Kashmir valley. For the visitor to Srinagar, staying in a houseboat is an out of world experience. The houseboat came into being during the British Era, when the Maharaja of Kashmir refused them permission to build on dry land. The resourceful Britishers took to the water, living in ornate houseboats. The style has hardly changed from the first houseboat built by Mr. Conard in 1888 right down to boats being built today and since then the houseboat become mascots of Kashmir Tourism and gained a worldwide acclaim. If your dreams include a sojourn on a houseboat in Kashmir, Kingfishers darting between the blossoming lotus and snow-capped mountains lining the horizon and each day concluded by a sunset of copper and gold, then imagine yourself on Nigeen Lake. Nearly two miles in length and overlooked by the imposing ruin of the Hari Parbat fort. Our boats are categorized in the Deluxe category. For unsurpassed value and an unforgettable holiday, we invite you to relax as Kashmiri prince in the carefree atmosphere of the New Golden Flower Heritage houseboat and enjoy the timeless majestic scenery of the Himalayas for yourself. We take pride and pleasure in providing the finest of houseboats experiences blended with the expertise necessary to enjoy Kashmir to its fullest potential.

The location is amazing in Nigeen lake, the possibility to sit on the front porch of the houseboat, but also in the beautiful garden (on their isle), the privacy, the wonderful people who know hospitality to the core and treat you as one of their family, the cleanliness and clear water of the lake in which one can have a swim, In particular a speciality, in their house (where I am also welcome), in the livingroom they have 8 birdsnest (swallows). These people live so close to nature. If you love nature, stay in this peaceful and comfortable place! A home away from home!

It was indeed an amazing experience. However, the amenities could be a bit better. Caretaker mushtaba was very kind and helpful and provided us everything we asked for. He had an amazing attitude when it comes to hosting. Shikara ride was peaceful as well at the lake. Thank you for hosting us.

Best houseboat experience in srinagar, the owners(Mr Yakoob and family) surprisingly, did not treat us as guests, but they treated us as one of their family members,(yes, we were really surprised, and my wife was so happy) Homecooked breakfast and dinner was so super great, hygienic, and delicious,especially their spinach and herbal chicken gravy, Houseboat is situated in nigean lake which is not crowded,and very peaceful, (well, isn't that our first priority when we go for a holiday?) Overall, we had a wonderful experience and we're so happy that we had choosen new golden flower heritage houseboat for our stay in srinagar, We'll like to thank Mr Yakoob and his family for taking care of us so wonderfully, and we'll like to thank them for making us feel safe,showing great hospitality and giving us a piece of their culture and history, and thank you for gifting us a hand sculptured shikara boat
