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.

About The Architecture:
Ri Kynjai translates from Khasi as ‘land of serene environs’. This resort presiding over the picturesque Umiam Lake, 20 kms from Shillong, is aptly named ‘Ri Kynjai – Serenity by the Lake‘.The architecture is inspired and derived from the original Khasi thatch huts. Legend has it that millennia ago the sea caressed the southern slopes of the eastern Himalayas and the Ancient Khasi tribe may have been a sea faring community. They readily adopted the upturned boat roof form which is inherently capable of withstanding the harsh monsoon winds and incessant rainfall.

The Cherrapunjee – Mawsynram belt, the world’s rainiest area, lies on these slopes. Being aerodynamically friendly, these upturned boat roofs were best suited to withstand the squalls and storms of the region.Ethnicity is at the core of Ri Kynjai. The resort reflects the warmth of Khasi hospitality, their eco-centric culture and captivating architecture combined with modern convenience and luxury. Set against the backdrop of the enchanting Khasi Hills, Ri Kynjai is spread over 45 acres and weaves three architectural styles into a harmonious whole that synergizes perfectly with the idyllic natural surroundings.

As you drive up to the resort through groves of majestic pine trees, lush paddy fields, small organic tea and vegetable gardens, your first view is of traditional thatch roof of the Porch and the distinctive hybrid cottages unique to Ri Kynjai. Supported on tall circular stilts, these hybrid cottages are derived from vernacular Khasi architecture and portray the transition from tradition to modernity with an unusual interpretation of the upturned boat roof in metallic thatch fused to modern gables.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.Ri Kynjai offers something for everyone. For trekkers, the legendary peaks, ‘Lumsohpetbheng’ and ‘Lumdiengiei’ are few kilometers away while the resort’s meandering walks provide for more relaxed exploration. Guests can also take a wake around the nearby Umiuh village.

The resort emporium showcases textiles and crafts from around the Northeast. The spa is equipped with state – of – the – art hydrotherapy equipment and offers traditional Khasi massage and herbal treatments.To top it all, Ri Kynjai is designed with its orientation to the east – capturing the view of the lake and the rising sun – a sublime wake – up call for those who love to revel in the ‘spirit of the rising sun’.
