We have, once again, experienced the magic and relaxation of the beautiful surroundings of Nageen Lake. As even, the hospitality and service given by the family members and Mr. Ahad have been second to none. These places we have visited before and after years contact and many visits to Kashmir, we have been taken to two completely new places Baramullah and also on the fabulous old Mughal Road. We hope to be able to return to the valley and enjoy seeing our lovely Wangnoo Family again INSHALLAH. Thank you all for so many very happy memories we will always treasure from the past 24 years. We thanks God for this wonderful relationship and pray for a peaceful and prosperous future for you and all Kashmir.

It’s my 2nd visit to Kashmir in the past 4 years. Both the times I have stayed here. I don’t wish to stay at Taj or Lalit. I feel like home during the stay. People are very good here. Houseboat Captain Mr. Ahad cool man working here for the past 30 years. Here only simply the best I have met during my 19 years at travelling in Travel Trade.

I have visited this place for the first time with my wife. We are extremely surprised to see such a warm and heartfelt welcome by the staff, especially Mr. Ahad who stood by us for everything we required and gave us a royal treatment at every step. The food, service and hospitality everything gets a 10/10 from us. We look forward to visit this place every time whenever we come to Kashmir.
