I visited this place during June 2014 with my husband and the experience was too good. Overall it is an excellent resort to chill out for an awesome vacation. The environment is very peaceful, clean and surrounded with greenery everywhere. The overall cost is worth it for the service and quality provided.
The rooms are of very good quality. They are constantly cleaned by the housekeeping staff. Every minute detail is taken care of. The toilet has quality fittings and is always kept very clean. We stayed in a Hybrid lake view cottage which was too good with a balcony, a spacious room and also a duplex study room. The furniture was of very good quality. The balcony had an awesome view of the lake which was blissful.
The food at the resort was excellent (especially the Chinese cuisine), but it is expensive.
There is also a spa in the resort which is also charged extra. The Spa area is very clean with all the equipment in place.
The resort staffs, including the house-keeping, cooking staff are very cooperative and friendly.
Transport is provided by the resort if opted, but would be charged extra. We visited Cherrapunjee, Mawlynnong and the living root bridge. There are no words to explain the beauty of these places which should only be experienced.
- 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
