Ri Kynjai is a very nice place for a short vacation. It has a breathtaking view of the lake from all the rooms and cottages. There is only one restaurant and a bar, which serves all types of cuisines. Cherrapunji is 2.5 hrs drive and has nice waterfalls and fantastic green hills. The only negative I found was late serving of breakfast at 8:30am (considering sun rise happens at 4:00am). I would strongly recommend the resort.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ri Kynjai translates into Khasi as land of serenity. This Spa-Resort presiding over the picturesque Umiam lake 16kms from Shillong is aptly named "Ri Kynjai - Serenity By The Lake". The architecture is inspired and derived from the original Khasi thatch huts. Supported on tall circular stilts on the terrace of the hotel blocks are the hybrid cottages derived from vernacular Khasi architecture. These cottages serve to portray the transition from tradition to modernity and have an interpretation of the traditional upturned boat roof done in metallic thatch fused to modern gables. Each cottage has a fireplace in the living/ bedroom area and the mezzanine floor has an additional bedroom arrangement. ... more less
