Ri Kynjai, a resort presiding over the picturesque Umiam Lake, translates
from Khasi as ‘land of serene environs’.
With the backdrop of the enchanting Khasi hills, Ri Kynjai is set amidst
groves of majestic pine, lush paddy fields and a small organic tea garden.
The architecture is inspired and derived from the original Khasi thatch huts,
which make a symbolic presence as a cap on the roof of the cottages.
The resort reflects the warmth of Khasi hospitality, their eco - centric culture
and captivating architecture combined with modern convenience and luxury.
Each cottage and room is designed with its orientation to the east,
capturing the view of the lake and the rising sun.
