Stayed here for 3 nights in cottage no. 2 - very comfortable room, good hot water & bathroom and wonderful terrace overlooking the lake. Very quiet, well maintained and large grounds - only negative is the dining room which was rather soulless and the food which could certainly be improved - breakfast for a hotel of this standard was rather...

Spent a wonderful 2 nights at Ri Kynjai as an escape from city life working in urban Kolkata. Service and amenities somewhat rustic, but perfectly adequate given the setting. Food was excellent, spa services tranquil and relaxing, and the natural beauty surrounding the resort is stunning. Thanks to front desk manager Amit D. for his hospitality. My only regret is...

I have gone to Ri Kynjai today (12/11/14) to celebrate birthday of my wife. Regretting the decision now. To start with, approach road to property is narrow and in very bad shape.The reaching gets worse as there are hardly any sign boards to guide. Once inside and after the initial wow factor I descended three floors to reach the only... More

Wonderful ambience with ethnic settings to create a laid back and refreshing experience for the guests. We just visited for our lunch on our way back to Guwahati from Shillong. Food was delicious. Though there is scope to improvise the service. A warm reception is kacking compared tobthe prospect if the property. Well maintained and vety nicely decorated.

My job demanded a lot of travel, hence a lot of stays at beautiful hotels, but this was by far the best resort I've been to. By 'Resort' , I mean my room! It was a cottage room overlooking the grand Umiam lake. Did not feel the need to step out to explore the rest of the space, even though... More

One of the best holidays in my life so far. We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in October 2014. This place is excellent, heaven on earth. Hotel lobby's interior decoration and the art pieces placed with handicrafts are just classic. Superior Rooms are very spacious and having the most beautiful view of the Umium Lake . Staff at...

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.
