We stayed at Ri Kinjay for 2 nights and had rooms overlooking the lake. The property was well maintained, with awesome views, great ambience, spacious and beautifully designed rooms. The staff was always there to greet you with a smile and provide any service you needed. Though the breakfast was average, the food at the restaurant (a la carte) was... More

An amazing property. Courteous staff. Great ambience. Food is also good. Breakfast spread is average. On days when not too many guest are there, they don't serve buffet breakfast and ask u for a LA carte. The property should have some indoor activities like snooker, table tennis, air hockey etc.

Provided you don't mind lots of steps and no air conditioning this is an amazing resort and definitely worth visiting once in your life. The owners must be congratulated for doing what most resorts completely miss and that is the need to experience the very best of what the local traditions, peoples, arts, crafts and beauty have to offer. The... More

The resort is just ouside of Barapani (Umiam lake) near Shillong. It's a famed one and the interiors do speak of it's exuberance. The food served is authentic. The restaurant has somewhat odd timings for out-of-room guests viz from 1 pm to 5 pm only. So reach early, take your food, seat back and relax. The view of Umiam lake... More

We had a good experience and interior is just brilliant. I would love to stay again while travelling to Shillong. Service was up to the mark and employees were responsive. Management needs to look at air-conditioning provisions during hot and humid weather.

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
