Had the most amazing experience. What started off with a slight glitch (the car which was to pick us up from the airport hadn't arrived on time and we had to wait a bit) ended with the best experience ever! 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

Staying at Ri Kynjai was a brilliant experience - the property offers the peace and serenity one truly needs on a break. The place is very well set up, staff is friendly, and the pace ensures that there is no hurry for anything. We stayed in a cottage - the set up of the rooms was quite well done -... More

Visited this property in December 2014, first & second week. The staff is hospitable, and so are the tour guides who are tied up with the hotel. The property offers a breathtaking view of the lake, and you can enjoy this view from your room as well. Rooms are spacious and clean loaded with amenities. Food was equally good, in... More

What a memorable stay...perhaps one of the most memorable stays of all our travels. Ri Kynjai is a lovingly built, stunningly beautiful resort where you will struck by their attention to detail...from the architecture to the textiles, crafts and musical instruments of the khasis displayed exhibition-style in the corridor - the place is stunning! The rooms are sprawling and the... More

This property was our reason to extend our Assam trip to Meghalaya and experience what by all was described as an amazing property. The location and the room design as well as the general aesthetics wows you. Waking up in the morning with sun shining on the lake is a sublime sight. There are treks within the property grounds itself,... More

I have spent 2 nights in this resort during the month of October'14. We have booked a Supreme room as lake view rooms were not available. Full marks to the ambience and amenities. Staff is very co operative. Specially designed Khasi archtecture is worth experiencing. Room was big and spacious. Only thing I would say is restaurant is average. All... More

We stayed there for 3 nights in cottage no.5. The cottage is superb and the view from the room is beautiful. The staff is very polite and helpful. The restaurant service is good and food is tasty. Cottage is worth the stay and would definitely visit again.
