Partner | Connecting Dal Lake To The World - Bilal's houseboat upholds 100-year legacy | The Quint

  • Опубліковано 27 кві 2022
  • Bilal's houseboat, Mughal Sheraton, has a 100-year-old legacy on Dal Lake that is synonymous with luxury. As the definition of luxury evolves over time, Bilal has left no stone unturned to offer his guests premium stay experiences with best-in-class amenities that can compete with 5-star hotels. But as Wi-Fi becomes an essential need for the modern traveller, he faces a new challenge - guests withdrawing bookings in the absence of high-speed internet. And this has put his family business at stake.
    With a never-give-up attitude, Bilal actively looks for solutions to bring Wi-Fi to the middle of Dal Lake and approaches Airtel. Presented with the opportunity to help revive a dwindling, but generations-old business and connect a community to the rest of the world, Airtel’s on-ground team executes an innovative plan. Now, like numerous other houseboats on Dal Lake, Mughal Sheraton enjoys high-speed internet, and Bilal has restored the legacy that it has always stood for.

    Great work. An entrepreneur is bound to face challenges. The Feild of Hospitality is highly saturated but the way one keeps itself different from others, makes them unique.
    Especially in conditions of Kashmir it is really challenging to uphold a business.. So it's Tym for us as a community to appreciate and support it as well

    Nowadays It is really tough to meet the requirements of the customers in this genre. And internet is really basic thing for everyone. But as the prevailing conditions of j&k are quite evident, so it becomes really hard to provide facilities to them.. but business owners r taking great steps to ensure the quality service. So congratulations for that ... Keep shining
