Visited with my family in the month of May, the property is small but is beautiful in its own way. The cottages are beyond amazing and the balcony view from the cottage is worthy every cent that you're paying. The staff is professional yet polite. The restaurant serves pretty amazing food and everyone right from the waiter to the cashier are helpful and genuine. Krishna who handles the computer was more than happy to help pack a meal for us as we were checking out early. I don't usually write reviews but I think this place deserves one.

- 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
