Surrounded by nature on all four sides, the earth, water, wind and cold will absolutely amaze you by its presence all together at Ri Kynjai resorts. The rooms are absolutely stunning. we had booked a supreme room overlooking the beautiful lake. This resort is about 20 kms away from the market city, but who wants to stay in the hustle bustle when you have an option of staying in natures behest! The staff and service provided is very good. We also tried the spa, which was quite good a relaxing especially coz the previous day we trekked for about 9 hours. The food provided was very good. Breakfast was the same both days that we stayed there. But it wasn't bad.
Negatives: We were on our honeymoon and had struck a deal wherein they would provide us a private dinner date on one of the nights. So when we realized that their idea for a private dinner included eating food in the room balcony or in the restaurant with a candle lit on the table :! We were super pissed and spoke to the manager, who was good enough to listen to our grievances and finally after a bit of argument decided to wave off the dinner bill of that night.
Happy Customers they believe in!
- 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
