We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The rooms are spacious and well designed. They look out to a lovely view of the lake. I enjoyed the food at the restaurant, though breakfast was a bit underwhelming and slow to start. The spa is not fully functional - there are limited services offered and you have... More

We stayed here for 2 days in May 2015 (anything more would have probably counted as boring in my view): Pros: - some of the most amazingly sized rooms I have ever been in (and I have been to 30+ countries) - well maintained property - beautiful views - serene and relaxing (to the max extent) Cons: - Food and...

Far away from the madding crowd and hustle bustle of the city life, lies this place of extreme solitude providing all the comforts and luxuries modern day living. Welcome to Ri-Kynjai, a resort property mostly aptly placed - overlooking the beautiful Umiam lake and at a distance of approx 20 kms from the city of Shilong (on route from Guwahati... More

Rikynjai is a wonderful place near the Barapani lake. The overview of the lake is just breath-taking. The hotel has been decorated with traditional tribal textile and wooden interiors. One can sit beside the lake and enjoy the scenic beauty. The food is good but a little expensive. Tourists have to book the place well in advance.

Location: This hotel is located around 18 kms before one enters Shillong on road from Guwahati. It is at a vantage position over-looking the Umiam Lake. All the rooms overlook the Lake. But the cottages located on the second (highest level) give the most panoramic view of the lake. The balconies in the rooms are the perfect place to see... More

We stayed at Ri Kynjai near Shillong for 4 nights during April 2015. The architecture of the place is very unique, setting by the lake side is ideal and staff is very warm and courteous. Ri Kynjai in Khasi means "serenity by the lake" as it has a wonderful backdrop of the Umiam lake - and serenity it is all... More
