Ri Kynjai is a good quality hotel with beautiful views out over Umiam Lake. If you’re looking for somewhere for a day or two of relaxing with a book, perhaps enjoy a spa treatment and some good food, this is the place for you.

Ri Kynjai means ‘serenity by the lake’ in Khasi language (one of the main tribes of Meghalaya) and that really says what this place is all about. The lovely rooms, the gorgeous views and the good cooking as well as the spa all combine to help you relax while you’re here.
The rooms are large and very well-appointed, with a sitting area and also a balcony so you can enjoy the views (there are lake view rooms and forest view rooms).
The hotel is set in 45 acres of lovely wooded gardens and the pathways are lined with standing stones. While it is structurally quite a large hotel, it only has 17 rooms and the owners have taken care to ensure that you will have personal service while you’re here.

Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

I wish we had stayed here! It was full when we visited so we couldn’t look at the rooms, but the rest of the place was so pleasant we have no doubt that the rooms too will be good quality. I would happily spend a couple of nights here looking at and walking around the lake, then enjoying the spa. What a great place to relax for a day or two!
