We have seamless check-in experience. Stuffs are dedicated to make your stay comfortable, so is the owner. Room has all the facilities required, including the tea/coffee maker, even they gave us electric heater as we were feeling a bit cold. Cleanliness is awesome. Fresh set of towels and bed linens were provided, bathroom is sanitized and clean. Sleep quality is good, however in morning (near 7:00 Am) we heard the noise from the roof, as they have open air rooftop breakfast arrangement and it seems, someone was dragging the table/chairs. Location wise, we don't find that great, especially most of the attraction is towards Shora, which is additional 30 mins ride by car, the only closest attraction was double tier living root bridge. Although view from the resort,

Dear Mr.Saptarshi Kundu, Thank you very much for your honest review of our property, based on your stay with us in January 2023. Thank you for appreciating the facilities we offer. You rightly mentioned that our property is located, 30 mins away from Sohra/Cherrapunjee town closer to the Double Decker Root Bridge & other Living Root Bridges of this area. Sightseeing locations are spread across Cherrapunjee, hence where ever one stays, some tourist spots may be closer and others further away. Our property is among those with good views-- on one side it the mountains, on another side its the view of the village below and on the third side its the view of the Bangladesh plains. We have created 2000+ sq ft of terrace space for guests to enjoy these views, apart from arranging activities like live music, campfires and an interesting morning walk. We are sorry that food during your stay was not to your liking. This looks like the period when incidentally, our head chef was on leave. We thank you for your feedback; we shall take care to train the other cooks to bring them up to standard. Thank you very much for taking the time and effort to write this constructive review, Sir. We shall use your inputs to improve our services.

Stayed here recently while on a short visit to Cherrapunjee and loved every moment spent here. The place is literally in the lap of nature, the rooms are cozy and clean and quite spacious. The staff was friendly, served with a smile and patiently answered all our queries about the main sight seeing spots around Cherrapunjee. The food was another highlight- the breakfast especially had a delicious range of items from dosas to grilled sandwiches. We ate on the terrace and it was literally a 5-star experience with a view of the mountains. The owner Mr Rayan and his wife have really invested a lot of their lives in making this place a great holiday experience for all travellers! We regretted having stayed only for a night and will definitely want to go back here!

We stayed at the property in a standard room for 2 nights in the 1st week of May. While the property and rooms are decent, what made it comfortable was the friendly atmosphere - not the typical hotel/resort kind, but more of a team, who are all locals from the area, doing the best in their own way. The standard room is decent and apparently older, but quite clean. It has a king bed with attached bathroom. There is also a tea/coffee making unit in the room. While standard rooms are in the same building as the reception and dining area, the new rooms are in separate blocks. There are 2 terraces to enjoy the views of the valley, mountains (with waterfalls) as well as the plains (Bangladesh). Every evening, around 7 pm, there is live music by a team of enthusiasts with a mix

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your Five Star Rating and for your detailed and factual review of the property. Your coming has certainly helped many people in this area. Thanks for the same. Mobile and Internet network had been not steady during the last two months. We have now provided Airtel ILL of 20 mbps. Still on a few occasions the Link was down for over a day. Airtel is trying to provide stable and reliable connectivity. These seem to be teething problems. Hopefully we will get past these day. When I came to this village first in 1979, there used to be one bus service once a week. We have come a long way. We are trying to bring in the most modern communication facility and Room standards the best our money can buy. As years roll on we hope to upgrade the facilities available. Thanks a million for your Review and Rating.

One of our best stays in years of travel journeys. This resort gets you emotionally connected with the place and people. We (couple) went there from Shillong Airport on 4th March and checked out on 6th March. We extended our stay for a day just for the comfort and excellent services provided by the hotel staffs. They provide a guided morning walk to the nearest village free of cost which is an experience by itself. The hotel has a terrific view of sunset from the terrace and is surrounded by many waterfalls. A very well maintained garden of lovely flowers, a swing and an open terrace to chill. Food was fantastic. Breakfast buffet was quite elaborate, same with dinner. They also arrange for a musical program every evening by a local band, which was quite entertaining. On Sundays,

Its actually should not be called a resort. Don't expect any resort like facility yet. Its the best place to stay if you want to trek to double decker living root bridge. Food was good, rooms were neat but very basic. Evening they arranged for bonfire and musical performance . Staff were friendly and helpful.

Dear Madam, Thanks for your Four Star Rating and your Review. We are an Eco-Resort and are not a Luxury Resort. The Living Root Bridges and the Double Decker Root Bridges were named and promoted by us. According to our ability we are providing the best of the facility that we can provide to make the stay exprience of our Guests comfortable, happy and memorable. It is helping to provide an opportunity to our youth to find employment in the village and to open their eyes to the world as they come to meet people coming from across the World. We are slowly building their skill levels. Thanks for making all these happen by staying at our place.

nicely located at the edge of the village this hotel offers good rooms with an excellent hot water system in the bathrooms (not a given in the Northeast!). Very friendly team that serves breakfast and dinner (included in the standard rate) either in the dining hall but, weather permitting, on the large and beautiful terrace overlooking the village and the valley. In the evening there is live-music by local artists, just acoustic guitar and vocals, no amplifiers, which is great. A bonfire is set up in the yard after sunset. Hotel is located about 4-5 km to the main path down to the valley with the living root bridges, which is the main must-see in the area. This is a bit far to walk, given the long, and I mean long, stairs you have to climb down and back-up again. Taxi is

Dear Guest, Thank you for your four Star Rating and Review. We do accept International Credit Cards. Only American Express cards are not accepted since they need prior authorisation. All Master and Visa Cards are accepted. We promote many treks around this area. The Living Root Bridges, including the Double Decker Root Bridge treks have been named and promoted by us and have become popular and internationally renowned. There is a softer walk to closeby Umkar Root Bridge - a drive of 3 km and a walk of just 10 minutes. Thanks for your review.

This is a charmingly beautiful place located away from the city and is quiet and peaceful. (The hotel can arrange for a cab/driver if required and the place is easily accessible via google maps, so no accessibility issues.) I stayed in a premium room, which is quite spacious and well-lit and has a beautiful view from the window. All the facilities provided were quite good, it was extremely comfortable and felt like home. The staff members were also generally very warm and welcoming. Food was good as well. We had a wonderful time in Cherrapunjee on our various adventure trips, also courtesy the enthusiastic guide and the cab drivers, which the resort arranged for us. If you are a nature and an adventure buff, Cherrapunjee is the place to be. If you are looking for a calm and

Dear Madam, Thank you very much for your Five Star Rating and Great Review. We are grateful for your Review. We are very happy that you liked your stay with us and enjoyed your nature outings. For 18 years we used to spend our holidays in this place when we come to visit our relations here. We built this Resort starting with just 6 Rooms. We have been slowly growing over the years. The idea is to open up this place to tourists and to create employment opportunities to our rural youth while providing a source of livelihood for ourselves. The property is 23 years old and all other properties in Sohra area have come many years after that. The Living Root Bridges and the Double Decker Root Bridge promoted by us have grown in popularity and attract tourists from abroad too. It has brought economic vibrancy to this whole area where many didn't see any opportunity. When you go happy and remember your stay with us it gives us immense satisfaction. Thanks a Million.
