On a long-awaited visit to Kashmir we spent three delightful days on peaceful Nagin Lake. What a brilliant choice to stay on a Jewel in the Crown houseboat! Given the time, we could have stayed for three weeks! The houseboat was beautifully carved in traditional style, so lovely to look at. At the same time it was very comfortable and we relished the opportunity to sit overlooking the lake or drinking tea in the lounge. Bashir and Irshad looked after us extremely well, serving us delicious food and going out of their way to meet our requests. Our room was spacious and well appointed. We understand that the en-suite bathrooms are next on the list for upgrading. For owner Asif, nothing was too much trouble. He did everything in his power to ensure that we were happy - which we were! We recommend this houseboat unreservedly.

True to its name, this is the 'Jewel' at Nagin Lake. A perfect combination of luxury, beauty, comfort and the warmest hospitality that I have ever been subjected to, The Jewel in the Crown is already on my revisit list.
The impeccable interiors offer you so much beauty to see within when you are a part of it, while the houseboat offers you the most magnificent view of the Nagin lake.
Serenity...beauty...peace...
The meals were home cooked food and simply delicious. The rooms were warm, very clean and tastefully done and offered a home-like comfort.
a huge thanks to our host Asif Wangnoo, who looked into our comfort personally every evening.
The Jewel in the Crown is a memory I am already looking forward to experience again :)

Jewel in the Crown houseboats is surrounded by a picturesque view .It's situated in Nigeen Lake which is serene and holds beauty of its own kind.

Facing the famous Hazratbal Mosque, to it's backside one gets view of Fort built by Akbar and on the right side one can see the Shankaracharaya Temple.

We had a lovely and pleasant stay at Houseboat.The host was very kind to spend time with us on festive occasion of Eid.We had delicious meals and a very good service during our stay.

Simply Delightful!!!
