About the property:
The longing to find comfort ends at Sukoon - a houseboat inspired by Sufism, in Srinagar. When you have the picturesque view of the Pir Panjal Mountains and the serene Dal Lake to float over, life truly comes to a standstill. You can also blame it on the genuine Kashmiri hospitality that’s bestowed upon you by the Sukoon staff, which just makes you have a peek into heaven.The idea of staying in a houseboat is unique and charming, and when it’s backed by endearing history, tradition and culture, it just gets irresistible. The owner of Sukoon has ensured that guests get to enjoy modern extravagance without missing out on the soul of Kashmir. Also, Sukoon Houseboat is ecologically friendly with a bio-tank, which means that no waste is discharged into the lake.The five en-suite bedrooms, each one named after the famous Mughal Gardens, give off a certain royal, old-era air. If that’s not enough, you have a tastefully done-up communal sitting area and a spacious dining room. You can spend your day doing nothing, yet enjoy every bit of the lull. Watch the day go by like a dream and as the poignant hues of dusk play with the sky, allow yourself to get numbed by it. Of course, the romance of shikara rides can never fade away. So, recline on a boat and sail across the lake, savour the life on water – the mobile florist shops, souvenir and jewellery shops, and fleeting glimpses of locals rowing their boats. Sukoon also organises easy treks in the hills, such as Aru valley walk, Sukoon Mahadev Climb, Sukoon Zabarwan Walk and the Sukoon Old City Walk for you to get a deeper taste of Kashmir Valley. A sojourn at Sukoon is about peace, divinity and mellow experiences.
