We visited Ri Kynjai last week to have lunch on our way back to Guwahati from Shillong. This resort is located in the woods and is quite close to the Umiam Lake. The staff is friendly and the food is good. This is an ideal place to unwind and relax for a few days, far from the chaos of city life. The location of the resort is good because of which it offers excellent views of the Umiam Lake and surrounding hills.
- 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
