One of the best scenic properties I've been to. The sheer location of this hotel is worth visiting. Tucked away at the corner of the lake, the entire bowl is surrounded by hills which are lush green. We visited in September and the clouds and greenery made for an amazing retreat. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Restaurant offers good food.
There isn't much to do in the immediate neighbourhood. You'd probably need a cap to get around anywhere outside the hotel. Must visit once though.
- 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
