Heavenly stay at serene Nigeen Lake

Posted 24 Jul, 2015

When it comes to Kashmir, only thing that comes to the mind is Heaven. The place is truly a heaven and among which Nigeen Lake is the most serene and peaceful place to enjoy your holidays. Peacock houseboats is a perfect place to stay at Sringar. Nigeen lake on west of Dal lake, but there is less rush at Nigeen compared to Dal. So you will not find crowded people and can enjoy the nature and weather of Kashmir. Especially in on-season, like August, you should prefer staying at Peacock. From the houseboat you get the amazing view of the lake and mountains in the back drop. Houseboat business is run by his owner who stays just in a small house at rear and he directly deals with his guests. The hospitality provides is unmatched and not even a five star hotel provide you such hospitality. The food is cooked at their house itself and served hot and is mouthwatering. Food you will get at Peacock houseboat is home like and tasty and 1000 times better than what you will eat at restaurants at Dal Lake. You can also ask the owner to arrange you sightseeing and he will be more than happy to assist you. The boats are made of walnut wood and with awes trucking interior. I believe it is impossible to describe how nice is to stay at Peacock; one should go and stay their and find out themselves.

A nice place to stay away from the hustle of Dal Lake

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

As mentioned in the heading above, the houseboats of Peacock are in Nigeen Lake instead of Dal Lake. As a result, its quite peaceful and serene. The view from the deck is quite nice for the mornings as well as evenings. The interiors are typical Kashmir - full of wooden engravings and carpets. Nice touch. The owner (Rahil) came personally to welcome us. The caretaker (Mohammed) was always at our service. We stayed for one night. The dinner was good but not great (As I had specifically asked for Vegetarian). Similarly the breakfast was just okay and very limited (e. G. We asked for Aloo Parathas for four of us (2+2), only 8 were brought with no second servings! The tea was good though. However, the owner and the caretaker took maximum care of our family and also helped us fir transportation for Gulmarg and Pahalgam. The rooms were heated with the special wood fired device as well as heated beds. I'd definitely recommend this if you need the calm and quiet experience of Srinagar Houseboat Living. And yes, the houseboat has free WiFi all over (which is a rarity in many hotels - thy only provide WiFi in lobbies. For in room service in other hotels - you have to pay!

Go with high expectations; hotel won't disappoint

Posted 5 Jun, 2014

I planned my Srinagar honeymoon tour with Kites Tours and Travels and purposefully asked for Peacock Houseboats in Nageen Lake as it was referred to me by my friend. Nageen lake is known to be a silent lake as compared to Dal Lake which has more crowd. The Shikara ride, Honeymoon cake and Candle light dinner was included in the package for Peacock Houseboats. The time we took Shikara ride we were the only one in the lake. What else would you need on your first day at Honeymoon? After landing in Srinagar at around 10 AM we decided first to go to Houseboat and get fresh and then move out for sightseeing. We called up Houseboat and asked if we can come now as the booking starts from 12. They seemed to be very nice and helpful on the phone which got more concrete when we actually reached. One needs to take a shikara to reach to the houseboat. As soon as we reached we were served with hot tea and snacks as it was very cold. We stayed for close to an hour and then when outside for sightseeing. We returned at around 5 and then we had our Shikara ride, pleasant, calm and comfortable. The shikara person offered us the phirni (jar like thing containing hot coal to give heat). It was good shikara ride in a silent and calm lake. Then we proceeded to Houseboat at around 6:30PM and ordered a Kashmiri KAWA (as suggested by our driver). They offered KAWA free of cost which was very good and hot enough. One won’t feel cold for few hours after one cup of Kawa. At around 8 PM our Candle light dinner was ready. It was a great feeling to see a good setup of candles and aroma. It made more special after tasting the food. Awesome! Overall a very good experience whether it be hospitality, room, service or food.

Memorable stay and friendly staff

Posted 11 Mar, 2015

It's located on Nigeen lake Srinagar. Very nice house boat. We stayed there for 3 nights, they provided breakfast, lunch and dinner also. Food was also very tasty. Staff was very friendly. They did all their efforts to made us comfortable. Many vendors can be seen roaming there in their small boat and you can buy nice Kashmiri things from them. We bought shawls from them. Boat in which we stayed had 2 big comfortable rooms, one hall, one living area and also small kitchen. Overall, very nice and memorable experience.
