I am extremely happy with hospitality being offered by New Lucky star group of houseboats. It was a chilling weather when i traveled to Kashmir with my family. The stay could not be more comfortable as it was. The food was very nice and also the whole trip was planned very systematically despite of the three days strike. I personally recommend a stay here. A special credit to Muzzafar for planning it so well and making it a memorable one and also Farukh ,the guys who makes his best effort to make your stay comfortable and simply awesome. Cheers to team of new lucky star group of houseboats.

Room Tip: You will find all rooms very comfortable here be it any!

I stayed on this houseboat for 3 nights. I was fore warned that winters are not very comfortable on the houseboat, but I decided to stay nevertheless. the room was comfortable. I paid extra for winter heating but it was a gas heater which could not do much for the room. I had an electric mattress which kept me warm while sleeping. The meals served were adequate, I had to tell the housekeeper the second day what I wanted as I was not happy being served veg food the first day. Even though the houseboat web site says unlimited free internet, it was completely non existent during my stay. there was a very weak signal which was of no use. Be warned that electric power goes off everyday from 1 pm to 6 pm. The web site also tells u of free shikara transfers to the main gate, but I was made to sit in a small boat and taken to the back road which is a then a good 15 minute walk to the main road. overall a pleasant experience but I am sure there are better houseboats.

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...

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
