Houseboat Ambassador: A Legacy of Hospitality

Sitting room

With a rich history spanning over a century, Houseboat Ambassador has been a cornerstone of the travel trade business in Kashmir. Situated amidst the serene waters of Dal Lake, our deluxe houseboat offers a unique blend of tradition and modern comfort, ensuring a memorable stay for our guests.

Crafted with exquisite Kashmiri wood carving and adorned with walnut wood furniture, our deluxe houseboat exudes elegance and charm. Each room is tastefully furnished with Kashmiri carpets, providing a cozy retreat after a day of exploring the beauty of Srinagar.

The legacy of the Houseboat Ambassador dates back to the early 20th century when the late Abdul Aziz ventured into the houseboat business in 1925. Since then, the Aziz family has been synonymous with hospitality, working tirelessly to promote tourism in the valley.

Rooted in tradition, our ancestors were pioneers in the travel trade, with a history dating back to 1714. In those early days, transportation relied heavily on waterways, with barges serving as vital lifelines for carrying provisions and goods across rivers and lakes.

Today, Mr. Husam, the fourth-generation owner of Houseboat Ambassador, continues the legacy of his forefathers with pride. Passionate about preserving the heritage of Kashmir, Mr. Husam warmly welcomes travelers from all walks of life, ensuring their visit is safe, enjoyable, and filled with genuine hospitality.

Whether you’re a honeymooner seeking romance amidst the scenic beauty of Dal Lake or a mountain trekker in search of adventure, Houseboat Ambassador promises an unforgettable experience. Our dedicated team is committed to making your stay comfortable and memorable, ensuring that you leave with cherished memories of your time in Kashmir.

Come, and experience the timeless charm and warm hospitality of Houseboat Ambassador, where tradition meets modern luxury amidst the breathtaking beauty of Srinagar.
