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.

This hotel is definitely one of the most amazing and beautiful hotels I've ever stayed at. The hospitality was mind-blowing. The food was great. The cleanliness of the entire hotel was spot-on. Everyone at the hotel was courteous. We didn't mind the slight detour of travelling a bit away from the city to get to the hotel. We had a... More

My husband and me were staying in Ri Kynjai for a week and we had the best experience possible. The hotel is excellently maintained, spotlessly clean for comfortable holiday. The food is tasty and plenty, from various cuisines. What really stood out was the attitude and behavior of the staff, with special mention for Dariti, who was very helpful and... More

The restaurant opens at 1pm, so on our way from Shillong to Guwahati, we stopped there for a wonderful lunch with a stupendous view. The food quality, quantity and pricing was excellentt. Lunch for 2 came to roughly Rs600. The resort ambiance was very relaxed and well maintained. From the discreet entry to the walk down to the reception, it... More

We were travelling from Shillong to Guwahati and wanted to have breakfast at Ri Kynjai. We had been hearing about the breakfast buffet and wanted to try it out. Unfortunately the guard told us we couldn't go in because the restaurant only opened at 1pm. We asked the guard if we can have a look at it, to which the... More

Ri Kynjai came very well recommended by friends, family and TripAdvisor. Was certainly not disappointed. Its a grand establishment with copious amount of woodwork thrown into every crevice of the hotel. This was really quite a treat to the eyes. Its a different kind of luxury to be surrounded by this much wood work. The hotel itself is quite basic... More

Hotel(Sorry Its called Resort) has pathetic food and service, They are looting your money in the name of a lake view property. Their chef can not make a simple tomato soup. I stayed couple of days and had dinner in the restaurant and both nights I was highly disappointed whether I ordered local khasi or north Indian food and the... More

Wonderful and peaceful stay in the lap of nature. Rooms are quite big with beautiful views. Mobile networks and wi-fi are available. Food is of good quality though a bit overpriced. Balconies have excellent views.
