Views out of a dream

6.8/7
Posted 14 May

The first thing my wife and I felt as we entered the place was that it was as if the place is out of a beautiful dream. The hill and lake's view from our room was nothing short of a beautiful poster Great hospitality guys, look forward to visiting again soon, and for a longer stay !!

The rooms are large and luxurious

3.3/5
Posted 15 May, 2014

The resort is well located amongst the forest, overlooking a large serene lake, surrounding hills and clear sky. In the night, typical sound of raindrops falling upon the tree and leaves were really soothing. You may like to sing, listen favourite music, do paintings or photography in the lake view balcony itself . . There is a huge scope of trekking or roaming inside the forest and enjoying the fauna and flora of that region. Wildlife safari, other sight seeing of the famous surrounding locations could be customized according to travellers interest. One can also enjoy the facility of boating and fishing around the lake. The resort amenities are more than sufficient. The rooms are large and luxurious. The food was good and staff were cooperative and courteous. It's a wonderful place to relax with full privacy, where you can spoil yourself or create something extraordinary out of your talents.

Best hotel with best services

4.5/5
Posted 17 Nov, 2014

If you plan to visit Shillong then this was the best where you should be. Just so perfect. If You prefer to stay in the city then this is not the right place for but if you want to stay in the arms of the nature away from the city's traffic and high buildings then this is the place to be. Enjoy the hide and seek of the cloud and sun just sitting in the balcony. So heavenly. Get a bird's eye view of the Umium lake. The buffet breakfast served was the only negative point I found about the resort. The spread was very repetitive without much variety to explore for people like me who stayed there for 5 nights. For a couple of days stay you won't notice much difference but for long stays the breakfast was a pain. I am sure the resort of this stature will surely address this shortly. Except this only one con all other facilities are 100% perfect. From reception, room service, housekeeping, travel desk to restaurant you will feel getting pampered. Thanks to each and every staff of the resort who has made my trip just so complete and special thanks to Dariti who took personal attention to every details. Kudos to Ri Kynjai.

Excellent Location,could be more enjoyable if activities and better breakfast are added

3.7/5
Posted 2 Oct, 2013

It is a wise decision to stay here than downtown. Shillong town is avoidable:slow traffic, dirty and scanty tourist attractions. Though quite far from the city, this resort gives the true feeling of Meghalaya. The lush greenery augmented by ethnic cane and wooden interiors are truly appreciable . In order to enjoy fully, do not draw the curtains. The view of the lake, the clouds and early bird chirping are a treat . The housekeeping and related services are quite apt. Toiletry are quite sufficient. Linen and towels crisp. Hot water is time constrained. The breakfast though stated to start at 7am is absent even up till 8. 30am . Drinking water is via Bottles. As the complimentary water is limited, one can carry supplies from city. There is no outside restaurant in the vicinity. No WiFi. Select a room facing the lake. During rainy season, the consierge does not have spare umberallas;so better cary your own . The management, besides the other mentioned negates, should consider complementary city shuttles at fixed intervals for the guests.

A tranquil place to unwind

4.2/5
Posted 23 Jun, 2015

The view of the Umiam lake from Ri Kynjai is simply spectacular. All you have to do is sit down on one of the lawn or terrace seats and look at this view, and you are instantly calmed. We booked the cottages and they were very large, spacious and nicely done. The resort is a little rustic for e. G ., there are no lifts, and they still use brooms to clean the rooms instead of vacuum cleaners. Nevertheless they do an excellent job of cleaning thoroughly and frequently. The food at the resort is good, particularly the North Eastern dishes. You must give them a try if new to the area. It is lovely to walk down to the Umiam lake which is a short climb down from the resort. The resort offers playground for cricket, and a lot of open space for walking and running around. There is no pool, which was just as well given the weather. The spa services are limited with only 2-3 types of massages, and you should inform the reception well in advance to get the masseuse. The location is perfect if you are looking for a calm getaway. However, if your aim is to do a lot of sight-seeing, this is a bit far from the city and you will have to give some notice to arrange for a vehicle. I would like to caution families travelling with old people that there are no lifts and there is fair amount of climbing in the resort, so it may not be an ideal option for old travelers who have difficulty climbing.

A hotel with good amenities

4.5/5
Posted 11 Sep, 2014

We as a team of friends visited Shillong for an off beat adventurous holiday with my friends. We were told that Ri Kynjai Resort is one of the best place to stay in Shillong. It is built on a Khasi style. It is one of the most quiet place to stay. The view of the sun rise as well as sun sets are the highlight of the rooms in this resort and can prove even a best place for those looking for a calm place for their honeymoon Ri Kynjai Resort has one of the best amenities which you hardly expect in a place like where it is located, especially in Shillong. We were greatly surprised to see the inside of it. The exterior of this resort in itself has a great aesthetic look gives you the old and new style. The services offered by the staff overall is very satisfied and there is definitely no qualms about it. Even the rooms are decently maintained and no issues. If you are planning for an offbeat holiday, I would definitely suggest you to try Ri Kynjai as it is the best place to stay in Shillong and very different.
