Stayed here for 6 days. The resort is built beside Umiam Lake and the location of the resort is very scenic. But be prepared that the resort is 17km away from the Shillong town. There are no other restaurants nearby or any other place to eat. So you have to eat at resort itself.
The menu is very limited and the food quality is just ok. If you give order, they take 45 minutes to 1 hour to deliver the dish. Though the staff is courteous the service is very slow. Overall the architecture of the resort is beautiful.
Rooms are big and have wooden flooring and the view of the lake from my room's balcony was majestic.
Don't plan more than 2-day trip here, because otherwise food will become a problem as menu is very limited & you would have to repeat the dishes.
