On a short break of 3 nights ,we took a chance and decided to visit this place. Boy, did it surprise us on the upside. An outstanding location,superb oversized rooms and friendly staff all helped in making our holiday memorable.. The location is slightly offbeat, but the peace and sense of isolation is amazing. The slight negative could be that... More

Very strategically located along the lake, beautiful rooms, excellent service & lovely interiors. This is by far the best place I have ever been to. Something worth a 7 star rating. The way they have added the local Khasi touch to each and every corner of this huge property is something worth appreciating. Piping hot water, Spic and span all... More

The staff were very courteous, professional and their service was absolutely delightful. Food was delicious and they have a varied menu which included some delicacies from Meghalaya. Umiam lake is...

Our room had the most wonderful view of the lake. Massive room, lovely food, really friendly staff. It's definitely the... More

An excellent place to stay. The hybrid cottage rooms face the lake and are very spacious and tastefully done up. The staff is very courteous and helpful. There is nothing much to do around so it is a good place to stay if you desire to just relax. Lovely property.. One can go for walk around the lake.. Would love... More
