There is a saying in hindi, jaise socha tha waise hi paya.. but Lucky Dawn was beyond words could express. Such a beautiful house boat, i thoroughly enjoyed my stay and enjoyed every Tea time conversation with Mr. Lateef saab. I never felt i was away from home, such amazing taarifdaari. Food, People and ambience was very good. That early morning snowing scene, gosh i miss them even after a week of finishing my solo trip to kashmir. Too good. I would love to visit again if i ever visit Kashmir again. Inshallah.
The houseboat is beautiful , clean , well kept and well maintained. the owner MR M. Aksar is a gentleman and very good person. Make sure you do not .. ABSOLUTELY DO NOT BUY anything from the people who come to the houseboat to sell stuff or for that matter anyone selling anything in the lake. I have compared the price diff and they charge 5X times more than the price listed on shops selling the same item on land.
It was our last day of our seven days vacation in Kashmir. Staying at houseboat was a totally new experience for all of us. Honestly, we didn't expect much from the houseboat. But to our surprise, this house boat was big, well furnished, well equipped with things like TV, fridge, books, snacks. It also included an hour of the beautiful shikara ride. In my opinion it's a must stay place for 1-2 days in your Kashmir trip. Taking off one star only due to taste of food served in dinner which varies from person to person.
Dawn Group of Houseboat is very easily accessible from Shikara Gate No. 18 and is really very nice houseboat with excellent service by the caretaker Nazir. We stayed in Happy Dawn Houseboat for 4 nights. Earlier we had planned only to stay for a night or two and move to a hotel for rest of nights in Srinagar but after the very first night we just couldnt think of moving to any hotel as it was the most pleasant and peaceful stay and a very good sound sleep. Food was good as well and served as per our taste and requirements. Breakfast served was specially taken care since we had kids who love to have Maggi etc. This was our very first stay in any houseboat so far. We were apprehensive before we went to stay and once we saw the houseboat from Shikara all that just vanished. House boat team did awesome job to meet all our needs to and make sure we had comfortable stay. Would definitely stay at this houseboat again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for clean boat with nice view and excellent service. In the evening enjoyed Shikara ride on Dal Lake and witnessed the marvel of the nature that is beyond visual and verbal descriptions. The Sun-set view from the Shikara will engulf your heart and leave your spell bound. We booked this houseboat through Mr. Zahoor who managed our entire tour of Kashmir (Srinagar Sonmarg Pahalgam Gulmarg Srinagar). He owns a maroon color Tavera which we had reserved on airport-to-airport basis for 7 nights & 8 days. If you are planning to visit Kashmir, feel free to send a personal message for any suggestions and contact numbers of Tavera owner cum driver (Zahoor), houseboat (Gulam Qadir), shikara guy (Yakub) etc.
House boat is well located having a very good view Rooms are good and warm but small,washrooms are ok Food is lacking,if you visit this houseboat you must talk with caretaker about your taste and preferences STAFF is very nice and deserve 5 out of 5 You must understand one thing , hotels and houseboats are very different ,you must not expect same facilities lik hotels.
