Homely experience, rustic bliss and excellent gastronomic experience. Vintage feel, every creak of the floor when you move around the houseboat is sweet and savoury and reminds you of the weight of history this property carries gracefully. Mr. Adnan was an excellent host to us, he explained us the the history of the property. And made us feel at home. Joy is to be a part, to be apart is woe.

Just Awesome…. We stayed for 1 night .. we booked 5 rooms.. We did booking in advance .. 2 months before.. The houseboat we stayed in was actually heritage property .. was 80 years old. We ended our kashmir trip with houseboat stay .. It was the most memorable experience we ever had.. our beautiful memories at Houseboat are driven by following things 1. Mr adnan .. his hospitality and professionalism won our hearts .. his presence makes the real difference 2. The location of the houseboat - Nigeen lake is really beautiful.. The houseboat experience is enhanced by the beauty of this lake.. I personally found the dal lake is too busy to stay 3. Mr adnan would arrange for the shikara ride also … we went for that option and it was worth every penny .. The shikara started from nigeen lake and hovered through the canals, bridges and beautiful villages .. We didn’t have the time but Srinagar sight seeing can also be covered by Shikara instead of car.. next time will definitely explore that option 4. The house boat amenities are quite comfortable.. We were 12 people and everyone regretted that we stayed for only 1 night.. I think there is no need to stay in hotel if one is in Srinagar.. This is the place where the Kashmiri culture meets the luxury

We stayed at the Akbar group of house boats in May 2022. The overall experience was awesome with tastefully built houseboats, lovely food and friendly staff. Adnan, the owner , was personally involved in making sure we had the best experience right from the checkin, arranging customised cuisine, local information and logistics with our other travel programs. The location of the houseboat in Nageen lake provides breathtaking views of the lake and easy access to shikara stands. Hilal, the chef, took feedback’s and tailored the breakfast and dinner to suit the requirement of children and elderly in the group. Adnan is very passionate about the culture and heritage. He works closely to restore the original decor of the boats without compromising on providing modern facilities in the houseboats..
