Best Houseboat in Dal Lake. Period

“First and foremost for all those who are apprehensive and are scared to visit Kashmir, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE EVEN A BIT. Kashmir is pretty safe for tourism with no issues whatsoever. Whatever we see in the media is overhyped. Even if there are any issues out there, it will never affect tourists in any […]


We had a lovely time at Sukoon. High end houseboat with heating, fancy bathroom with a bath – it is a five star experience. It has a lovely sun deck – perfect to lounge in the evening sun, read a book, just watch life go by and sundowners. It is in one corner of the […]

Beautiful, relaxing and top notch in every way

Our whole crew stayed here whilst filming a documentary for ITV and we adored it. Such a beautiful boat, and set in gorgeous surroundings. Altaf and his staff were charming and attentive, and we would have loved to have stayed ALOT longer!

Amazing View

The rooms are clean and the well maintained. The bathrooms are very clean and don’t even realise that you are on a house boat. The staff are very warm and welcoming . The food was good with variety. A must stay for a night !

Wonderful place but not now

“This is an idealic place. Wonderful location beautiful scenery, and we were truly spoilt. Sadly you should not visit there for the foreseeable future, because of all the rioting of the local people. You can’t go out, no shops open, people off the streets curfews, Internet constantly down and teeming with army and guns. The […]

A good break

Quiet recluse tucked in the corner of Dal lake. The service was impeccable and Rooms clean. If there was something which could be improved it is the food, slightly bland may be catering to foreign pallets.

Perfect place to unwind

I visited the Sukoon houseboat during the current difficulties. We had been hesitant to go but decided to go for it and I am really glad we did as we had an amazing time. We were collected from the airport and taken straight to the houseboat: the streets were deserted and there was a soldier […]

A superbly spiritual and idyllic destination

This is a houseboat location on Lake Dal, Srinigar. It has been upgraded in the last three years and is an excellent experience for anyone looking for tranquillity in this kind of environment. Recent political disturbances will affect current travellers and will not be recommended by the UK foreign Office but once the troubles settle […]
