Ri Kynjai is one of those iconic places to stay where you discover beauty everyday. Let me start with the great location... One of the most scenic lakes next to your balcony, to which you wake up every day. Great structure and property built with character of the place. Real feel of Meghalaya. Some of the best food served, though... More

Ever since our 1st visit in May’11 for a lunch, we had this property in our mind given its picturesque location. So this time when we wanted weekend stress buster break, we decided to unwind at Ri-Kynjai! Reaching: An hour’s drive from Shillong and about 2.5 hrs from Guwahati. The roads are good and the drive is smooth even at... More

Beautiful property but nearly an hour's drive from Shillong so best to chill out after business. We were in cottages on top of the property with a commanding view of the lake. The terrace of each cottage can seat 5 or 6 people and we enjoyed drinks and room service food while watching the star. Lunch at the restaurant was... More

It is the best resort in north-east i have visited. Quietly nestled around the Umiam lake and away from city bustles yet with all the modern amenities and yet not so costly. The restaurant too is very good for the vegetarians like our group.

Undoubtedly a beautiful place to stay, surrounded by pine forest and Lake view from few of the rooms, size of the rooms are very big, clean and hygiene. Bathrooms are also big and clean. Beautiful craft of wooden works in most of the parts of rooms, Lake view from the balcony of the room is another added thing. Also the... More

Dont try to land up unannounced, as you're likely to be disappointed if you haven't made a prior reservation. This place is best visited with your spouse/companion or family. If there's just the two of you, the rooms are perfect. The duplex "Cottages" built atop the rooms are good for a family of four. The view (especially if you've asked... More

In the midst of nature (Woods & water). this is no less than heaven. A perfect place to get away from the daily grind. Kudos to H/K staff for the impeccable cleanliness & reception for ever waiting to help with a smile. Walk in the woods for fishing, dinner at the gazibo & lake view is the best. I stayed... More

It was an out of the world experience. There cannot be a better location than this. The resort is located on the banks of a huge lake with mountains and greenery all around. We were actually in the lap of nature. The services are very good and the hotel staff is very friendly & helpful. I would like to give... More

if u r in search of tranquility, u will fall in love with this resort. shillong might be about 40 mins drive away, but the view of the umiam lake from the rooms balcony more than suffices it. rooms are very spacious and staffs are very efficient and always smiling.
