Surrounded by nature on all four sides, the earth, water, wind and cold will absolutely amaze you by its presence all together at Ri Kynjai resorts. The rooms are absolutely stunning. we had booked a supreme room overlooking the beautiful lake. This resort is about 20 kms away from the market city, but who wants to stay in the hustle... More

Great place to relax and recapture the magic moments with family & friends. The food quality is simply superb ! The view of the lake , the resting areas in the front garden or the short hike to the neighboring village makes it a truly great experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ri Kynjai translates into Khasi as land of serenity. This Spa-Resort presiding over the picturesque Umiam lake 16kms from Shillong is aptly named "Ri Kynjai - Serenity By The Lake". The architecture is inspired and derived from the original Khasi thatch huts. Supported on tall circular stilts on the terrace of the hotel blocks are the hybrid cottages derived from vernacular Khasi architecture. These cottages serve to portray the transition from tradition to modernity and have an interpretation of the traditional upturned boat roof done in metallic thatch fused to modern gables. Each cottage has a fireplace in the living/ bedroom area and the mezzanine floor has an additional bedroom arrangement. ... more   less
