New Lucky Star Group of HouseBoats
Ranked #17 of 594 Speciality Lodging in Srinagar
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The first night stop on a 5-day trip to Kashmir from the 19th of October to the 23rd of October... After our flight landing at around 2 and a trip to Srinagar's beautiful Mughal Gardens (Chashmeshahi, Nishat and Shalimar),the houseboat was a great evening experience...

The ride on the shikari to the houseboat on the Dal lake was beautiful with the sun set creating an orange hue in the sky...we could also see the Shankaracharya temple on the hill top from the houseboat....

Mr. Farooq provided us with simple but delicious and hot dinner and breakfast meals....along with hot masala tea whenever we ordered for...

Overall, a pleasant stay and good ambience with Kashmir's famous wood carvings adorning the houseboat's interiors...

Went for a 7 days trip to Srinagar. It was 4 of us - my parents, sister and me. The wonderful experience begin from the airport and continued till the end... The service, hospitality and courteousness of each and every member, made it the most pleasurable experience for all of us.
Have received valuable guidance from Mr. Javed, Rashid Ji, Farooq Ji and Raj Mohammad Ji before we went for site seeing to different places in and around Srinagar. The rooms were very comfortable and cozy at the houseboat (New Lucky Star Group). Food was equally good and just like home-cooked food. The politeness and ready to help attitude of Javed, his father, Farooq Ji and Raj Mohammad Ji was an additional gift for us. Javed and Muzaffar had always been very patient, whenever I have called even before we have reached Srinagar, with queries and concerns... always assuring us that the trip would be great and everything would be taken care off. They have really stood by their promises and even more to make this the dream trip of ours. Thanks Javed, Muzaffar, Rashid Ji, Farooq Ji & Raj Mohammad Ji for making this trip the best trip of our life. Wish you all the very best!!!

Thanks a lot Javed and Muuzaffar bhai for making us feel privileged. A must stay in Dal lake!! We stayed in the the house boat for two nights and one day. The boat care taker Mr. Farookh bhai was an excellent guy and had great knowledge about the place and the Dal lake. Not only this he was meticulous in his service.

Room Tip: The earlier the rooms in the boat, the better!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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 woodcarvings, paneled walls, and tiled baths. New Lucky Star Houseboats are categorized in the Deluxe houseboat category and each boat has an assorted number of three to four bedrooms with a private bath and washroom. 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 have a 24 hour power back up and clean water supply. ... more   less
