Wonderful place to eat and relax. Food was good and service was excellent. The view from the restaurant was spectacular not to forget the amazing clifftop pool. Staff was well spoken. Will make sure I visit again.

Dear Guest, Thanks for your Four Star Rating and Review. What baffles me is the view from the amazing clifftop pool. We do not have any pool. Hope you have not written the review meaning for someother place.

We visited this resort in the month of May. I'm an avid traveler and from South of India. Without a doubt the hospitality we enjoyed at the resort is the BEST we have ever hard. The staff is all women and very courteous despite many questions you have about the sight seeing options. The walk down the resort into the Lainkyntsew village is very charming.. interacting with the small children and family was very pleasing. The village also has a primary health care center which is well maintained with quality staff. The view in front of the resort and from the Rooms is awe-inspiring to see the valley. Please go for the deluxe rooms on the top floor for best view. The kitchen in the resort serve very delicious vegetarian food including South Indian and any made to order. The owner

I and my friend visited this resort on 11&12 March. It was my second trip to cherrapunje and second visit to this resort. Though previously it was more beautiful according to my feeling but now it has developed more with new building and annexe building. But the rooms are decent,very clean, spacious, staff very cordial and owner also very friendly. The ambience is still the same, the buffet breakfast and dinner is really wholesome and I liked a lot. You get to taste local pineapple and mulberry juice . Overall it's a grand experience and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. I stayed in a standard double bed room. One should not leave the opportunity to stay here once you are in cherrapunje.

Dear Madam, We are so happy that you chose to stay with us for the second time. As the demand for stay with us has been growing, instead of declining guest requests for stay, we have been adding accommodation. The new rooms are furnished more and more better every time as we add buildings, more sit out area is created to enjoy the hill top view of the valley, the waterfalls, the river and the plains of Bangladesh and courtyard and garden is being developed for better enjoyment of the place. We added Buffet Breakfast and Buffet Dinner so that we can serve sumptuous and delicious meals to our guests. The new rooms that are getting ready will be having large valley view windows from where one can see the scenic beauty of the valley as the clouds float through the valley and waterfalls streak the hill sides. We are coming up with a 360 degree view point at the very top of the new building. We enjoy serving our guests with the warmth of our guests, so that you always go with pleasant memories of your stay with us. Thanks a Million for your review. Denis P.Rayen

The choice of staying here was made by a friend. IT certainly turned out to be a great choice, We were a group of old friends and we could not have asked for a better experience. We were greeted by the friendly staff on arrival and they were very attentive to all our need. In fact some electric points were not working in the room allotted to me and I was upgraded to an other room till the next day when the resort had things back in Order. the rooms are quite basic but clean and neat. the food was very good, like home food and had a wide variety. The Evening bonfires were a great place to chat around. .All in all a great place and cheers to Mr. Dennis for his exceptional hospitality.

Dear Sir, Thanks for your review. We are glad that you had enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry for the inconvenience on the first day as the micro circuit breaker was tripping when you wanted to use the electric kettle and one of the power points was not working. We had started with Standard and Deluxe Rooms which are basic. Our Executive and Premium Rooms are better furnished. The new Valley View facing rooms will be still better appointed. We are happy that you had enjoyed our food. They are prepared by home makers and does not upset one's stomach especially when guests stay with us for many days. We shall look forward to be of service to you and to other members of your family and to your friends circle. Thanks for your review. We appreciate it. Denis P.Rayen

Some of the must see sights in Meghalaya are about same distance from Shillong and Sohra. Our decision to base ourselves in Sohra was dictated by frightening traffic in Shillong. Cherrapunjee Holiday Resort turned out to be a great choice. This pocket friendly place offers basic comforts and really great service. The owner Mr. Denis Ryan is always around and ever ready to oblige and provide guidance. The place is located at the edge of a small village with friendly people.

Dear Sir, We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our place. We are trying to provide a great ambiance for Family Holidays while bringing employment opportunities to the people of our surrounding villages in a scenic hill top location. We have developed many treks around the place and had named and promoted the Living Root Bridge including the Double Decker Root Bridge. One can take bath in waterfalls and fresh water springs during the monsoon season and can do many treks, River Canyoning and Adventure Caving in the winter season. We provide good amenities at a family friendly price so that many families can benefit from our service. We appreciate your Five Star Rating. Thanks a Million. Denis P.Rayen
