Sukoon Houseboat is situated beside the beautiful Lake Dal, away from standard houseboats which are massed together further down the line. Its name means 'tranquillity' or 'relaxation', and has been lovingly restored, keeping its intricate cedar wood panelling and carvings.

It was in the 19th century when the Maharaja of Kashmir allowed British visitors to live in houseboats as a retreat from the heat of the Indian plains and it became an exceptional popular destination given the fantastic views and slow pace of life.

There are five rooms including one suite. All rooms are en-suite with large windows overlooking the lake. There is a large living room, dining room and a fabulous large sun deck offering 360 degree views of the lake where breakfast is taken and the perfect spot for a sundowner. The food is superb, ranging from glorious Kashmiri dishes to southern Indian cuisine.

You can either sit back with a good book and let the world unfold in front of you on the lake, or head off into Srinagar. There is a superb vegetable market which happens every morning, and it is worth taking a walk in the old town - a part of India very much unchanged by time. Take a traditional shikara boat to explore the hidden canals surrounding Dal Lake.


There are five rooms and one suite, each with fantastic views, en-suite bathrooms and antique furniture.


Sukoon Houseboat has a living room (18ft x 24ft), dining room and a large sundeck.
