Polo Orchid Resort, Cherrapunjee
Mawsmai Village Cheerapunji
Ranked 2 of 25 hotels in Cherrapunjee
Last April 2013 visited Cherrapunji with my wife and daughter. Since we wanted a relaxing vacation kind of so we decided to stay in polo orchid. We found out that it was in the best location in Cherrapunji. The beautiful seven sisters falls lies next to polo orchid which makes the stay even more exciting. Imagine sipping a cup of your favourite tea or coffee in your room sitting on the sofa and watching out through the window and there's real seven sisters’ falls in front of you and exclusively for you. A satisfaction which can't be described in words and which your expensive LED /HD television set can't give you. As soon as we entered the room was happy to see the interior work, everything was proper. Bathroom was clean refreshing for use. Beds were comfortable.TV was placed in proper place. But the best part was the view from our window and our balcony. Privacy was there in the room from other rooms. Staffs were humble and had a friendly approach which made us comfortable. The next morning was happy to see the housekeeping was on time and was impressed with the services. Food is good and pocket friendly. The restaurant is on the first floor of the reception with a beautiful view. Both I and my wife had a wonderful stay on there and some good memories as well. Though we were there before the rains which are not an ideal time to visit Cherrapunji yet our stay in polo orchid made our trip memorable. So for people looking for a family trip or a vacation in Cherrapunji it's a must stay at the cherra polo orchid because they are Cherrapunji. For travellers travelling during season time it's advisable to do your bookings in advance and check out for details online. Next time I am there may stay in the same cottages because I found them quite comfortable and I’m going to carry some of my favourite books and also my sketchbook so that I can sit there in the backyard /downhill facing the seven sisters falls and sketch it down. And if I am with my friends there I’ll surely carry my guitar because I have got some songs in my mind.
This place is truly the best to stay in Cherrapunjee. You will find all the basic things you want as good food, quick service, mesmerizing views, etc The resort is spread in such a large area that rooms are so distantly spaced. Whole area is surrounded by a completely secure wall.. You can roam around in the property at night in the moonlight. In the day time views are breathtaking. Rooms are not that beautiful but they have all the amenities required. Value for money I visited there in a dry season so there was nothing much for sightseeing except for the double decker root bridge. Which is a must must visit. Brace yourself for 3000 stairs. I will suggest a suite to take the best advantage of that place. Enjoined the stay, u'll not regret.
Cherrapunjee is a remote location far away from the hustle and bustle of Shillong and we were thrilled to be there as a family on vacation. The hotel is situated on a vantage location giving an excellent view of the sister falls and has rooms spaced out in a unique fashion. Was shaped more like a resort and the landscaping is done very nicely for the approach from the gate. The rooms are very decent and spacious enough for a family of 3. And the service was very good and prompt for any request you make. The dining area in addition gives a wonderful view of the falls and the rates of the meals are okay and the taste was very good and just spicy to the right level. The variety offered in the menu is also quite aplenty to choose. The booking can be made the previous day over a call and the confirmation is given if rooms are available. Special cottages are also available at a extra 1000 rupees per night and the hotel is expanding as well to accommodate more. If I were to go again, would prefer staying in the same place and not try anything else. The staff are very courteous and helpful for all niggling issues you have.
Location wise the hotel was very good. Appearance wise the hotel was attractive. The interior and exterior of the hotel was good. The food quality was good. The room was spacious, clean, neat and well-maintained. We had a waterfall view from the room. The staff were friendly and helpful, they were quick to attend our requests. Check-in and check-out was done quickly. Activity like basketball court was provided. We arranged our own sightseeing trip. The hotel was value for money. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
We stayed there from 29th July to 31st July. It's a very good property with very good landscaping and glass house. They have very good sized rooms with a very nice bathroom with a bathtub and rain shower and very nice balcony with an amazing view of mountains and their terrace. The food here is good especially there Italian (there menu keeps on changing)and Multicusine restaurants. The breakfast buffet is also good with pretty much everything and more like there speciality Shillong dishes. The (high tea) they do in evening is very nice. They have a very good spa and fitness center. They have a very good hospitality each and everyone of them. The only somewhat lesser point is that the rooms is very small according to the size of the property. But all in all a very nice pleasant and enjoyable stay.
