I stayed at this lovely boutique hotel from 24th to 28th October. There is a gorgeous calm about this place and it's run with a quiet efficiency. The lounge areas and seating hangouts are beautifully furnished with a careful eye to detail. The library has great vibe, the dining room is bright and welcoming with windows looking out on to a flowering garden. I very much enjoyed the breakfast every morning (served from 7-10 am). The Habitat offers a good choice of Indian and continental items, with eggs to order. The hearty breakfast sets you for the day. A small lane leads out of the hotel and connects to the busy heart of Laitimukra. There are nice cafes and hangouts within a stone's throw of The Habitat (try the Shillong Cafe for authentic Khasi food). You can walk around everywhere and experience Shillong. Explore the greens of St. Edmunds College. Take a trip to Wards Lake, go for a boat ride, stroll around the flowering gardens and have fun feeding the abundant fish from the bridge. Then at the end of a busy day come back to the peace of The Habitat -- a true home away from home. The staff of the Habitat are caring, mindful and attentive. They are what makes this place so special. I loved every minute of my stay and I hope to return again soon. Cheers!
