If you want to spend a few days, amidst luxury, in a beautiful hotel, overlooking a scenic lake, then Ri Kynjai is your answer! The location and scenery are really quite spectacular.
The architecture is also quite unique as they use all local construction materials and the design is also very indigenous. The lobby and the rooms are decorated with a lot of tribal weaves and bamboo products from the area.
They have a wonderful restaurant in the premises that serves a great breakfast. Their lunch and dinner menus are also very interesting. The only drawback maybe the distance from Shillong incase you want to visit it.

Gorgeous property with a gorgeous view of the Umiam lake and immaculately done up. And decent , fairly helpful staff, esp housekeeping/security and restaurant. But the food is very average and overpriced and overall there's a feeling of indifference...for example, no one at the reception asked me even once (not even during checkout) on how my stay was! Also, while the view is lovely, it's quite a pain if you want to visit the Shillong city.

On the banks of the umiam lake as you enter Shillong is Ri Kynjai, an absolute must if you have deep pockets to at least spend a night in their amazing architectural resort with views of the lake. Pay a bit more for the lake facing rooms, its worth it.

Stayed a night at this sprawling well landscaped resort overlooking the waters of Umium Lake. The rooms give a heritage wooden feel with opulent bathrooms. The drawback - Understaffed, delayed food service, remaining staff are rude and moody.
