Idiot on the line told me that there were rooms available and then asked if it was for a family. When he came to know it was an unmarried couple he quickly changed his earlier submission of rooms being available. Instead he suggested I book another home stay which he would recommend. When I questioned the change in his stance he cut the call.

Dear friend, Thanks for your one Star Rating. We promote our place as a Family Holiday Destination and we take in only families including married couples, lady travelers and student groups. We reserve the right of admission. Thanks for sharing your experience on the site. Though we were unable to take your booking, we had tried to help you to get alternate accommodation. We prefer to hold on to our values. We do not mind you calling us IDIOT.

Scenic location of the resort. Staff is very friendly and will give you a homely feeling. Rooms are pretty decent and clean. Every night they lit up the bonfire, as the climate is pretty cold there. They provide basic homely food, but nice and nutritious. We were on Jain diet, they took extra efforts to cook Jain for us. Do not expect anything fancy or luxurious, but basics all in place. The only thing to consider - resort is located a bit inside like 10-12 kms. The approach road is not so great.

Dear Sir / Madam, Thanks for giving us a Four Star Rating and your Review. The starting category Rooms Standard and Deluxe are the ones we started with and are basic, decent and clean. The Executive and Premium Rooms that have been added later are better appointed. We will soon be introducing Sixteen, spacious rooms (over 360 sq. feet each) with large plane glass windows opening into a 3000 feet green valley view which is adorned by clouds drifting lazily through the valley and over 18 waterfalls streaking the side of the hills during monsoon season. Our Chefs are homemakers and we try to provide good food that does not upset the stomach and is suitable for all our guests coming from different parts of the country and from abroad. The Resort is situated on the top of the only ridge running parallel to Cherrapunjee plateau. Hence one gets a grandstand view of so many waterfalls to see from the Resort itself. The relaying of the Road has been sanctioned and we are awaiting their execution. Some construction materials have already been reached to start the work on the road. One can see over 3 dozen waterfalls when one drives down this road during monsoon months.

We were a big group from Australia & the UK that stayed here for 3 nights as our base in Meghalaya. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Wonderful staff, delicious food and a talented bunch of staff who also provide entertainment in the evening. It's a great base for tours to the root bridges and the dawki river. You can relax in the evenings after a day.of touring. We used the services of a brilliant & most honest driver named Raju Das. He picked us up from Guwahati Airport and took us around Guwahati - Shillong - Cherrapungi - Guwahati. Highly recommended. Book him through Shakti Travels (Deepa Subramanian deepa@shaktiholidaysindia.in)

Seemed like one of the better places to stay. However when I called them to inquire about the booking process etc, the lady on the phone started asking all sorts of questions about my relationship status with my partner. When I informed her that we're not Married, she refused to accept the booking and said that they only entertain married couples. Highly discriminatory, extremely conservative especially when Indian law allows couples to live together. Have never faced anything like this anywhere else.
