The owner is an American with a long interest in the Plains Indians of North America, who married a local women, so one finds a mix of Chinese, Khasi (?) and Red Indian... More

A spectacular place for tourists and a must visit place if you are coming to Shillong! It has the beautiful view of the Golf course too! It is a high on budget place so you better be having a wallet full of bucks but surely its worth it!

I recently visited India for a month (North East, South and Central) and this was truly our best accommodations. Being from Las Vegas, I have seen a fair share of hospitality, and this was top notch. The owners, Elmie and Jim, are so warm, inviting and more than gracious. The space they have created feels beautifully sacred, eclectic, inviting and... More

The lodge is a Feng Shui masterpiece and a true work of art. Each room is an individually crafted retreat with comfortable beds, wonderful linens and nice hot showers. During... More

My husband and I were in Shillong on business, and we had been placed at a relatively undesirable hotel. We looked around for another option, and found the Lakkhotaa Lodge. We were AMAZED! Not only is it an excellent hotel, but we are from the US and in fact Native American, my husband, an enrolled Lakota. How does this magical... More

Had an occasion to visit Shillong with a small group recently, and we booked ourselves in to Lakkhotaa. We did not know what to expect. And, it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Small and very tastefully decorated place. I tried to capture it on camera - but gave it up since no frame could do justice to the... More

We visited shillong in late june 2015. We put up in this property for three nights. The lodge is a quaint and tastefully done up place. The owner is a thorough gentleman. The only flip side is that the property does not have any view. But if you require a calm resting place guaranteeing a good night's sleep after hectic... More
