A long planned trip to Kashmir materialized after a very long lockdown period. We booked with Riaz who responded immediately after having received our booking and arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport and took us straight to the lake side where we got onto a gondola riding across the lake in the warm winter sun to the house boat where Riaz and his nephew Owasi welcomed us. As we were the only guests, we had the house boat (which has three bed rooms) for ourselves. Rooms were spacious and decorated in Kashmiri style. With temperatures going towards Zero degrees in the night, the fire places on the house boat (we had also one in our room) we felt always warm and cozy. On our request, we had Kashmiri style breakfast and dinner during our stay. Dishes were prepared well and the food was very tasty all the time. Riaz asked us daily for any special meal requests and prepared one night a very special request, roasted duck – I can only say so much, highly recommendable and a must when staying on the house boat. Owasi joined us during day time as tour guide, helped us with some special requests and took us around with passion and explaining us all the great places – and there are many - in and around Srinagar. The five days we spend in Kashmir and with Riaz and Owasi, all the times very helpful and assisting us with any need, were definitely too short and we are planning another trip to Kashmir and stay with the two gentlemen in the near future again. A big thank you to both of them.

We booked this hotel through SS CARAVAN and had best deal, very neat and clean place to stay. Also nigeen lake is very clean then dal lake in case if staying, otherwise dal lake is recommended to explore in shikara.

My husband and I stayed on Houseboat Inshallah for 5 days by the time we left, felt like family of the owners and staff. It is as beautiful as the pictures make you believe and the setting is breathtaking and serene. From the deck, I watched pied kingfishers catch tiny fish, geese glide by, duck families float along and a host of other birds sing in the nearby trees. But, the real beauty of Houseboat Inshallah, is its people. They were not only our hosts, they were our window into hidden parts of Kashmir craft still existing, guiding us on a perfect balance between design, architecture and nature in the beautiful valley and majestic mountains. All with absolute pride in their place and heritage and with such grace. If you haven’t been - we wholeheartedly recommend Houseboat Inshallah and we’ll definitely be back for more!

If your visiting Srinagar a stay at Houseboat InshaAllah is a must. From what was initially planned for a one night stay, me and my friends ended up spending 4 nights.

Be treated like Royalty with owner Riyaz Bhai going out of the way to ensure we had a good experience.

Initially we planned to stay for a night but we extended for 4 nights. Amazing Houseboat experience more than what expected. The owner Mr. Riyas Bhai and his nephew so friendly and helped us with local tips. They made arrangements for city tour and Gulmarg tour. They Kashmir food were delicious. Simply the Houseboat is one stop solution. We are planning to visit again with our family. The staff were helpful.
