About the property:

Ri Kynjai - Serenity By The Lake offers you the perfect getaway from the urban hubbub. Nature lovers can choose to luxuriate in perfectly appointed cottages, undergo traditional Khasi spa treatments and dine on local delicacies… the more adventurous may prefer the beautiful hill treks, boat rides and island picnics, and of course, a day at the Shillong Golf Course, dating back to 1889, and still referred to as the ‘Gleneagles of the East’.This boutique resort is as perfect for families seeking the ultimate all-round getaway as it is for corporates requiring discreet and luxurious convention spaces. Lovers of authentic experiences will be particularly pleased with the architecture - inspired by the building ‘language’ of traditional Khasi cottages while incorporating the best of modern practices.Designed with an eye for detail, the intricately framed ceiling is set off by red pine walls and flooring. The fireplace in the living - bedroom area, adds a cozy intimacy to cool nights. Wooden steps lead up to a loft which serves as auxiliary space. Ingeniously built into a cliff, the main block is not visible as you approach the resort. Overlooking the azure waters of the Umiam Lake, the elegant 800 sq. ft. red pine panelled rooms are spacious and meticulously planned. Each includes a sleeping and living area, bathroom, dressing room, and opens out to a balcony where you can relax and enjoy the spectacular view. At the garden level are the restaurant, bar and conference facilities - all with a panoramic view of the lake, hills and forest. The restaurant and bar, Sao Aiom, (‘four seasons’ in Khasi) serves Indian and Continental cuisine as well as Northeastern specialties.
