The kashmir houseboats are associated closely with the valley's culture and traditions. Dating back to the British rule, houseboats became home to these people after they were denied land grants in the state. A brilliant idea that started from constructing small boats was later revolutionized with transforming these boats into spacious modern styled floating hotels. houseboats are all made of the finest cedar wood that follows with intricate walnut wood carvings, paneled walls and tiled baths. Our boats are categorized in the super deluxe category and each boat has an assorted number of three to four bedrooms with a private bath and wash room. The houseboats also have a fine dining area and a lounge cum sitting room. The houseboats come complete with a large front seated balcony, a sun deck and a small kitchenette. We generally have a 24 hour power back up and clean water supply. Each of our houseboats has a cook and a care taker who work for you during your entire stay. All of our houseboats have an attached boat that is placed under your command. These small paddle boats can take you out into the open lake or take you across on your way for any sightseeing. We definitely know that once you visit and experience us, you would always feel yourself back in your second home.
