Stay in style and comfort in one of the four luxury villas or three suites tucked away among orchids and terraced fields and relax into lazy days of sipping cups of steaming saffron infused Kashmiri tea served from a samovar while feasting your eyes on the mesmerising vista of life on Dal Lake below. Watch shikaras drifting between houseboats, stilted lakeside hamlets and floating gardens while the shimmering image of Hazat Bal Shrine is reflected in the water like a mirage. Rediscover the simple pleasure of a serene silence only occasionally broken by a bell hanging from the neck of a passing goat or the muffled sounds of everyday life drifting up on the breeze. Or take leisurely strolls on mountain paths to spectacular view points and local villages for a taste of the timeless rhythms of traditional rural Kashmiri life. Trek over the hills of the great Zabarwan range to the Dachigam National Park, where Himalayan Black Bears and the Hangul Kashmiri Stag roam, a delight for birders. And visit nearby ornate Mughal Gardens and atmospheric historic heritage sites steeped in history.
