“EXCELLENT, OUTSTANDING....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”

At the onset I would like to thank Mr. Suhail Ahmad for organizing my Kashmir visit and made it so enchanting.

It was for this excellent tour plan that I witnessed “Heaven On Earth”

Now coming to the stay for three nights in Lala Rukh houseboat. It’s simply superb. The rooms, ambience, view all are excellent and outstanding. The hospitality offered by Mr. Ahmad was overwhelming. The whole experience left me speechless.

Over and above these was the excellent care taken by Abdul Bhai and the food he prepared for us….mouth-watering. We felt at home when we were there. He took very good care of us.

Also the Scorpio which was with us and the man who drove it…Jan Mohammad….a gem of a person and his father-like presence was the icing on the cake.

I thank you all from the core of my heart and promise to stay with you and associate with you whenever I am in Kashmir and I highly recommend to all.

When in Kashmir stay with Lala Rukh houseboat and enjoy the warmth and hospitality and allow Mr. Suhail to arrange for your visit to other places also.

If you do not then you will miss one of the most fascinating and enchanting experience of your life.


Thanking you and sincerely yours,

Pratik Dey

We stayed in this two bedroom houseboat for two nights and we only regretted that why we did not spend another one or two nights here. This has got two bedrooms and believe me if you see the second bedroom, it was just WOW !!!!!!!!! The bed was having unbelievable kashmiri wooden work on it, the bed cover was also with Kashmiri stitch work, similar bathroom and a great food service also. Really we received a great hospitality from them and would love to come back here.

“Best way to relax for a week (or more)”

After two exhausting days of arrival in Delhi we arrived in Srinagar on this wonderful houseboat and it was like heaven on earth. During our stay they organized a really nice programme to see & explore Kashmir. But they also organized the following two weeks for us.. and it was absolutely amazing. Thanks to the whole Lalarukh-family!

You get plenty of houseboats on Dal Lake, but in retrospect, for us, theres simply no reason not to choose Lala rukh. We had everything, felt at home, service was delightfully professional and at the same time family-like. Youre gonna get what you expect and quite a bit more. Excellent choice.

Very nicely decorated very humble and cooperatiive management....specifically suhail who has an eye for intricate details...abdullah chatter box looked for all minute comforts and really lovely to talk. One day we had booked for but i dont know 24 hrs slipped away in a shorter time.and i was told the one we stayed was medium class not the luxury one. Any way if this is medium i am happy with it .lovely tea or qawah for welcome not to miss umpteen tea and lovely breakfast though limited as per order but with a touch of hospitality ...bless u suhail ...and abdullah will try making next year
