We had gone to have lunch here. It was great. Pork item was delicious and so were the hakka noodles and chicken. I had a couple of drinks ( teachers) and it was surreal in that environment looking at the lake. Must visit place.

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

Good for vegetarians also. No packages as far as I am aware. However, if full family, book a cottage. That should be cheaper than booking 2 rooms.
