Although the room rates are on the higher side, but apart from that it has been a wonderful experience at ri kynjai resort. The rooms have breathtaking view of the Umium Lake popularly known as Barapani. The resort itself is located in such a beautiful location amidst nature, one should visit to believe it. Good food, good staff.

Serenity redefined ! Am amzing resort - breathtaking lake view adds to everything good at this resort. A beautifully designed architecture - in sync with the forest and lake, spacious and elegant rooms, a cute dining space. With Shillong and Cherrapunjee not offering much to the tourist, the resort itself is a combination of ' viewpoints'!. Life comes to a... More

Property is good, resort manager is also very pro active but poor seen starts when you stay second day, house keeping will withdraw amenities in room and even rooms will not be refreshed in a right manner. Food is good is you take Indian not much choice if you go for continental it is horrible.

One of the best resort in india to explore and we mesmerised with our decision to stay in this resort. One of the best location in north east to explore and the architecture and ambience of resort is to give ice on cake feeling. However bit expensive as per standards but must to stay once.
