We booked the houseboat on a phone call with minimum hassle. Nazir bhai was easily accessible and made it all look simple. We reached somewhat late in the evening, he organised the pickup from the ghat 17. Once on the houseboat, we were made at ease with the cool demeanour of Nazir bhai. We were served nice Kashmiri food for the dinner. Next day morning he arranged for an excellent taxi for us to go to gulmarg and then tied up our evening shikara rides and the early morning visit to the unique floating vegetable markets. He was also very willing to take us for short boat rides to the shopping areas in the dal lake. Just when we were done with our trip, we forgot to take pics in traditional attire….not a problem- he said. Half an hour before our departure the photographer was there…. All tick boxes done. All in all, it was a very homely feeling to be with him there. We go back with sweet memories and recommend the property for unique experiences

My bucket list was to engulf the essence of Srinagar by living on a houseboat. Mr. Nazir and his wonderful employees helped me check that off the list. They provided my dad and I with all the things we required, from boat arrangements to day trips to delicious food. The room was beautiful, adorned with intricate Kashmiri details and the service was kind and warming, as if you were at home. Thanks to Royal Dandoo, I’ll be going back with a trunk full of most beautiful memories.
