Very beautiful and quiet place. We traveled in search of a quiet place and natural nature. Found a very comfortable place to relax and unwind. The owner of the hotel is attentive and helps in traveling with advice. I can recommend the youth company and people planning a quiet vacation.

Our first visit to Kashmir was an awesome experience with natural beauty of the valleys in abundance but must say that the best part was the experience of staying in a houseboat and the Shikara ride. We had booked everything last minute and were lucky to find an antique sort of houseboat named Zandari of Mr. Imraan. As we booked both it's bedroom we were able to have an exclusive houseboat experience. Also the simple and honest owner Mr. Imraan made it a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights in deluxe rooms and had a great time despite the bitter cold in December. The host Imran ji is a gem of a person, extremely humble and always willing to go the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. We’ll miss the endless conversations with him sitting by the fireplace every evening, about Kashmir and other things, sipping on a cup of authentic kawa! The entire boat was sparkling clean, rooms had electric bed warmers and the bathroom had hot water available always. Food was homely and delicious, served hot. Overall great stay with exceptional hospitality. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the zaindari houseboat for a day and our experience was beyond amazing. The location of the boat is away is away from all the city noise yet close to the dal lake gate. Houseboat exceeds any expectation at a very reasonable rate. The host Mr. Azeem is very sweet, warm, friendly and talented person. He helped us with the tour before we could arrive and also helped us with the tour suggestions. We had a very comfortable stay. Definitely must stay here at Zaindari houseboat Highly recommend
