Hotel Overview

Sense of place

On Dal Lake in Kashmir, framed by the majestic snow-capped Pir Panjal Mountains.

Rooms on Sukoon Houseboat

The cabins are all wood panelling and turquoise wall hangings, and are ultra-spacious for a houseboat. They all have en suite bathrooms with a bath and shower, and wide windows that afford beautiful views over the lake.

Food and drink

Dine on lip-smacking Kashmiri and Keralan specialties in the elegant dining room, or under a canopy of stars on the roof terrace. Take in views of the incredible mountains and boats gliding along the water as you sip cocktails on the rooftop terrace.


Sukoon Houseboat provides plenty of spaces for relaxing; from the large living room to the sun deck, commanding 360 degree views of the lake. Relax here with a good book on one of the sun loungers beneath the shade of a parasol, looking out over the lake and watching shikara boats going back and forth.

Activities at Sukoon Houseboat

Potter around Dal Lake on a traditional shikara boat to soak up the lakeside lifestyle, and peer into the water to admire the pretty water lilies that grow here. Don’t miss the fruit and vegetable market in the old town which is held every morning. Go on a walk through the Old Town and navigate narrow alleyways, Islamic bridges and the Shah Hamdan Mosque – one of the oldest in Srinagar, dating back to 1395.
