Hi everyone! The Shillong tour draws to an end and I nevertheless couldn’t get enough. 😀 Lush greenery and caverns and water all around… who could ever have enough of it? Let me just keep the post short and let the pictures speak for themselves. 🙂
My Stay with The Habitat Shillong –
Went as good as words would describe. 🙂 Now this is the part of the post I’d talk. Neat rooms and courteous staff made our stay all the more worthwhile. Plethora of colors played across its garden stretch on the lawn, and every morning I made sure to take a walk among them. As the chilling wet winds flurried past my skin, a tormented mind was put to rest and an aching soul eased… And what is a travel that does not refresh your mind and body?
A Bed-N-Breakfast of its kind…
I was not looking for commercial hotels at the time of booking. While I preferred homestays, most of the high rated BnB’s were sold out for my dates. Well we seldom plan in months advance. 😛 The ones that were available were either priced beyond a decent budget, or did not live up to expectations. That’s when I got hold of The Habitat Shillong, a quaint guest house at The Asian Confluence, at around 35% discount with MakeMyTrip. Could I be any more lucky? 😀
I would describe The Habitat as a beautiful amalgamation of wood, teal, white and golden with splash of scarlet here and there. Everything in the house is in place, and every color in sync with the other. There’s nothing too much of, and no color is subdued. Such intelligent interiors! I took just five seconds to fall in love with that place. 🙂
It is a BnB of its kind, and the breakfast spread was pure fresh produce. We mostly had dinner after a long day of sightseeing, and although the menu was limited, it was nevertheless ‘a home away from home’. If you know what I mean. 🙂 Every food item fresh from the oven – you do realize the importance of steaming food in a cold place, right? And that too when you’re dead tired at the end of the day.
And there is a Library too!
The Habitat Shillong has every element to make you want coming back to it. Warm and cozy rooms, praiseworthy maintenance and excellent services is how I would sum up my stay with The Habitat. I do not have a lot of pictures of the interiors (believe me I hardly had time from all the rush. Slept as a log in the nights and basked in the morning glory in the lawn.) But hey, what is Google master there for? 😛
Some Flora Love…
And the journey draws to an end…
We all need breaks once in a while. This trip did good to me. Hope my posts helped you get an idea if you’re planning a trip to the foothills anytime soon. Stay good, stay glad. Cheers!
