If you're looking for peace perfect peace. Houseboat New Retreet is the place for you. Tarik is the Owner, and the perfect Host, he was amazing. We were immediately treated as a member of his family. Our room featured a red embroidered carpet which was quite exquisite. The bed was extremely comfortable, and we were provided with an electric blanket, plus additional blankets, this made our room really cozy. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, hmm, left us with a pleasantly satiated feeling until way beyond lunchtime. One thing to bear in mind; to access your desired houseboat, you need to travel by "shikara" (this is a smaller rowboat), just sit back on the luxurious cushions and enjoy the view/ride. Srinagar lies in the Kashmir Valley. It's a trip of a lifetime. And as our wonderful, educated and very entertaining taxi driver said; "Come as a Tourist. Leave as a Friend". That's beautiful Kashmir.

It was a great experience staying on the Houseboat Newretreet in Dal lake, Srinagar. The boat is nice and well decorated. The room is spacious and carries the rich tradition of Kashmir. I was overwhelmed with the owner’s warm hospitality and kind treatment. One can have a perfect holiday with peace and relaxation there. If you stay there you will feel like a part of their family. Overall it was a soothing and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend to stay on this boat.

We stayed at New Retreet Houseboat for two days and we were extended excellent hospitality from Tarik. Shikara was arranged for our pick up and drop to Gate number 7 whenever we needed. The rooms are neat, clean and beautifully decorated. The houseboat also has a pretty open area and common living room where one can relax and have some hot kehwa. Breakfast was tasty and Tarik made sure we had all the food we required. The view from the houseboat was obviously mesmerizing. I look forward to going back when I visit Srinagar next time. Definitely give it a try :)
