Ri Kynjai was the highlight of our trip. I had looked at the pics on tripadvisor before booking and the actuals did not disappoint. The room was huge, very well maintained and clean. The staff of was very courteous and responsive as well.
We did not try the food much except for the breakfast which was excellent and with a view to behold from the balcony. The walks inside the property are enjoyable and the greenery is so refreshing for urban dwellers like me. A big thumbs up from me.
- 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
