If you're looking for a place marked with serenity and tranquility while availing of all the traps of modern luxury, this is the place to be in Shillong. The place is a good 20kms away from the city center, so the regular sightseeing options are far away. However, the place is truly in the lap of nature - the large... More

We had booked the Superior room and it was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the lake - makes for a great view while sipping morning tea, sitting in the balcony. The bathroom was... More

It pretty much delivers on what it promises. Location is truly amazing as it's built into a hill. It truly encompasses natural beauty at it's best. The food is great, or at least the ones we tried are. Staff are very courteous & helpful. It's ideal for people who love peace & quiet to relax.

We had a great time at Ri Kynjai. Room was tastefully done and very cozy, surrounded by nature and silence. Food was good and the staff were friendly. Though it was winter time, the wooden floor and heaters kept us warm. A morning walk to the Umiam lake is a must for anyone who stays here.

A relaxed vacation with spouse cant get better than this. We visited this place from 5th December 2015 - 8th December 2015. The place is little outside the main town and probably that's why we liked it more. It was quiet and peaceful An awesome stay to say the least. The rooms are huge in itself and the bathroom is...

This is a fantastic Khasi-style resort in the lap of the serene Umium Lake. This is 20 km before Shillong city and therefore, there is no man-made disturbances whatsoever. There is peace everywhere. Their cottages are the best but we stayed in Lakeview superior rooms which are no less good. Awesome lake view for our room...rooms were big and spacious... More
