one word.RECCOMENDED !!Upon my hubby’s insistence, we decided to have our nov vacations in the utopian Kashmir. We decided to start our trip from the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir and largest city in the Kashmir region – Srinagar. Kashmirmagic.com , a pioneer in booking honeymoon packages confirmed our bookings after we had searched almost endlessely fr 1 month & also considering to plan by ourself ( an idea which we dropped later coz of “kashmir” factors) .Theirs ws an affordable budget package The picturesque hotel of Dar Es Salam was booked as our lodging in Srinagar.
From the first look we were awestruck by the beauty of this property. The property resembled an old “Haweli” which had been converted into a boutique cottage resort. What this had ensured was that the antique interiors and sculptures were preserved and that gave the resort a different sort of feel. We were royally welcomed at the reception and were directed to our special honeymoon suite.
Our suite was around 550 sqft in area and was equipped with all modern amenities. Large windows caught my wife’s attention and she immediately opened them to capture the serene view of the sublime waters of the Nagin Lake. The lake, though not as much fashionable as the Dal Lake still had its fair share of shikaras. The next day, a shikara picked us up from the gardens of Dar Es Salam and took us on a memorable romantic voyage!!
The owners of the hotel are from the same family and they take real care of the guests. They believe in total client engagement and their zeal and enthusiasm tends to rub on, on the crew, giving an unparalleled experience.
Sightseeing trips on auto rickshaws on the consequent days were arranged on prior basis. Based on the owner’s instructions, Abdul, our auto driver doubled up as our tourist guide and gave us a vivid trip to the Mughal Gardens, Chashmashahi, Shalimar and Nishant Bagh among others. Thus we had an amazing time at this resort.
