This is my 4th visit to Khilona. Trust me it’s like coming home but at the same time the excitement, surprises and the beauty as it were the first time.

There is definitely something about this place the people who own and run it that brings me back. I would recommend this place to those travelling to this part of the country to stay here and feel NATURE, PEACE and the definition of hospitality that we have kind of forgotten lately.

A must stay place for a absolute holiday.

Thank you zahoor baktoo and team for making our Kashmir Holiday memorable, we promise we will come back every year! We experienced beauty & hospitality beyond our imagination , such is Kashmir and such are its people !
We stayed in Khilona Heritage houseboat for 3 nights, and the place, the hospitality everything was unforgettable. Altaf, who runs the houseboats, helped us finalize our itinerary in Kashmir and he also arranged for an excellent driver during our stay, who became more like a family member in these few days he drove us to gulmarg and Pahalgam. To say anything about Altaf will be less, one needs to meet him to know him and you will like to come back coz you know this person will go out of his way to make you feel at home. The staff in the houseboat was so helpful and friendly and made our stay so homely that when we were leaving on the last day, we felt like we were saying bye to our relatives whom we will meet in next summer holidays!! I have to also inform that the property is very newly normally all other houseboat in Kashmir are 60years old but this houseboat is only 5 years old, very neat and clean and very well maintained. The bathrooms were super clean with super hot water. Food was like home cooked, delicious meal every time.
The highlight was the view; You can't get these views from anywhere. Not just the sunrise view, but the night view of the mountain range too. I have no doubts, that I will visit Kashmir every year now and will stay in no other place than Khilona Heritage Houseboat..
