Good resort to enjoy your holiday

Posted 5 Jan, 2016

I went to the resort with my full family and we had booked the entire resort. The rooms were very spacious and for some rooms we could see the river below which was very nice. We played cricket and badminton in the ground and enjoyed a lot. The food was also very good.

The hotel staff’s was good

Posted 4 Jan, 2017

I had visited this hotel with my family. The food quality was very good but expensive. Fan, Geyser and TV were in working in the room with good condition. Wi-Fi connection was provided by the room. The allotted room was spacious. I had booked the room by online. The hotel was located out of the city. The hotel building was like resort in middle by the lake and forest. The garden was not available in the hotel. I didn’t face problem in the check in and checkout. The hotel staff’s was good. There was no suggestion for this hotel.

Good hotel to stay in good location

Posted 30 Nov, 2015

We went to Ri Kynjai Resort with our full family. We had booked full hotel, rooms were very big and nice. We could see the river from our rooms, the hotel also arranged for a dance program for all of us. The food was also very good, they made special food for all of us in the breakfast and also in dinner.

Expensive stay, good location, nice food

Posted 7 Nov, 2014

Hotel was good but it was very expensive. I went there through package. Food was nice. Swimming pool was not there but gym was there. There were many places for sightseeing. Location was very good. It was located outside the city and in front of Airport. I had gone there with my family in December 2012. Renovation should be there. Staff behaviour was nice. Look wise, it was very good. Both veg and non-veg dishes were served by them. Buffet system and room service was there. I was happy with the room allotted. There was some problem to find out the hotel because it was not on the main road. It was not good to travel at night. I have already recommended this hotel to my relatives and friends.

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

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 resturant 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.
