Beautiful resort. Impeccable service. Nice large rooms with dressing room, large bathroom. Well maintained, clean. The khasi massage shouldn't be missed at the resort. You can spend days just sitting by the lake amidst the forests. Also safe for solo women travellers. Food is good, the resort premises is huge and has a trail to the lake through the forest....

Beautiful, relaxing hotel with the amazing view to the lake. Rooms are spacious, full of fresh air and light. Hotel is situated in a huge pine-tree forest, where there are multiple walking trails. It's a unique experience to wake up and see a sunrise over the lake, surrounded by pine forest, just from your bed. Very friendly and helpful staff...

This resort is truly the finest and the greatest pick if you wish to experience nature to the core! You will have the restaurant overlooking the Umiam Lake through the Lush Green Valley and it all seems just perfect. You can never get bored of the experience. Luxurious rooms along with a balcony gets you much closer to the nature....

It is very relaxing to just keep on gazing at the lake from the comform...

This is THE place to stay in Shillong. The name is so apt - it's serenity by the lake! All I wanted to do was wake up at 545 am (extremely unusual for me) to wait and watch the dark sky turn orange and then the sun playing peek a boo between the hills and clouds. It's the exact idyllic...

Serene and peaceful overlooking the Umiam Lake. One can hear the birds chirping and watch the sun rising and setting from the mountains. The room was huge - our elegant 800 sq. ft. red pine panelled room is spacious and meticulously planned. It includes a sleeping and living area, bathroom, dressing room, and opens out to a balcony where you...

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
