THe winning aspect of this hotel is its location. You wake up to a stunning sunrise and overlook the man-made lake. It's a tranquil place ideally located the surrounding Shillong areas.
The rooms are of excellent size and the en-suite facilities are very good.
It was cold mid February when we stayed and the in-room heater came in very handy.
The one thing they need to improve on is the breakfast service which is meant to start at 0730 but when we tried it out, we were not served until near 0800. Considering that quite a few of the guests make early start for their daily excursion, this is something that needs to be addressed.
- 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
