“Srinigar Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Yakub bhai made my trip to Kashmir very relaxed, easy & unforgettable. I did a lot of net surfing and scouting and eventually zeroed in on New Golden Flower on Nagin lake and was impressed by the reviews and warm regards for Yakub bhai by many travellers. He is extremely cooperating, kind, honest family oriented, knowledgeable & experienced guide. He knows exactly how to make you comfortable and happy.

He arranged a trip for me to lake manasbal and it was the most beautiful trip of my life. On his recommendation I tried the Fish Kababs which were out of the world ....... a speciality of this place and only available here.

I am looking forward to visiting Kashmir again with my family very soon and New Golden lower is the ONLY & obvious choice as it's location is apt. Nagin Lake is quite and peaceful and very unlike the and noisy cluttered Dal lake. Yakub bhai's boat is located at the very beginning of the lake and offers a spectacular view of the entire lake.

Yakub bhai...thank you very much for your warm hospatility and company.

Warm Regards,
Romee

8 of us stayed at the new Golden Flower Houseboat. Amazing experience, well kept rooms, pampered by hospitality of the caretaker. Enjoyed sunset ride on shikharas, endless shopping of local handicrafts bought to our doorstep by "shikhara shops".

Highly recommended, apt for those who want something away from clutter of Dal Lake!

Nigeen Lake : an expanse of calm. turquoise blue waters floating lilies, chirping birds: in quite contrast to the hustle bustle and noise of Dal lake; and then this houseboat comes into view:; its carved porch so enticing,,the day curtains all silky and wispy in the cool breeze.. its decor so rich and enthralling.. the essence of Kashmir pervades the ambience:: royal chairs and tables... intricate lamps and fixtures, colourful carpets and delicate china ware>> a truly mesmering effect on the first time traveller!! Then Yaqoob bhai( the owner) presents us with a Pitcher of Kahwa: a welcome drink that enregises and sets the mood of Kashmir rolling.... one just sits back and relishes the solitude of this part of Dal Lake : a bit isolated , but so peaceful:; you relax on the front balcony as shikaras float by , a slice of daily life in Kahmir unfolds slowly ... rustic and endearing in its simplicity. A few drinks under the star-lit terrace where a fragrant breeze awakens the senses makes you realise what all this magic of kashmir is all about ,, and this is promptly followed by a lavish dinner served on a carved glass dining table complete with ornate chairs and a opulent chandelier delivering soft shafts of light.There is no hurry, the unobstrusive family leaves us to enjoy our evening : there is calm and serenity all around..>> lights of boats moored on the distant Dal cause mysterious reflections in the waters and now we have the enitire houseBoat to ourselves. We spend a few hours soaking in the sights and sounds of silence,, wine and hookahs in tandem with the lapping waters.. Strongly recommended to all honey mooners, group travellers and solo wanderers: all facilities are first rate, the hospitality leaves no scope for any complaints and the decor truly mkaes you feel like a KING for The DAY ..
