Cherrapunjee (Sohra) in Meghalaya can rightfully claim to be the real abode of clouds. Once known as the rainiest place on earth, Cherrapunjee (Sohra) may have lost this pride of place to Mawsynram on the other ridge, but for a visitor the sudden rains that can create impromptu waterfalls and geysers all along the route to Cherrapunjee (Sohra) are a sight to behold! Cherrapunjee (Sohra) has legends galore to entice those with a passion for tales of yore. These legends encapsulate the history and culture of the Khasi people one of the three tribes of Meghalaya.
Nestled in this hearth of Khasi culture is Jiva Resort, Cherrapunjee (Sohra). The Resort conjures images of clouds coming home to snuggle amidst this picturesque haven.
Once you check in at this home away from home, spread out amidst a heavenly ambience, there is a sense of quiet serenity. Every room affords a view into the green hills and dales. Here is where nature does its spectacular dance, offering the visitor a glimpse into as many as four seasons in a day. One moment it’s sunny and then the clouds float up the valley bringing sudden showers. Or the mist simply embraces you and you sit enthralled by this natural kaleidoscope of images.
The resort has ten beautiful air-conditioned rooms with heating system. If you are lucky to be staying in the suite with the Jacuzzi and a balcony then your holiday in Sohra is made. For those stressed out by the daily grind of life Jiva Resort promises a refreshing break, nay a retreat where mind, body and spirit heal themselves through a natural process.
Cherrapunjee (Sohra) is known for its genteel culture and etiquette which is embodied in the attitude of the Jiva staff. Whether you wish to dine in the room or at the imposing dining hall where each table is fitted with a charcoal grill, there is a personalised service by staff who love what they do.
The waterfalls, the little bridges and canopies, the landscaping and the fresh green decorative pines carefully laid out in pots are a visual delight.
But perhaps what every tourist looks for is a sumptuous spread that emanates out of a modern kitchen that churns out a lip-smacking cuisine down to the most scrumptious desserts. Jiva Resort offers a wide range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian palate.
For golf lovers, the Sohra Golf Range just a few feet away from the resort offers a good opportunity to improve your golfing skills at a very reasonable cost.
Trekkers can just take off and walk down the valley to explore the sights and sounds and then walk up refreshed and ready for a cuppa.
Jiva Resort is no less exciting than a holiday in Switzerland. It beckons and we offer you nature on a platter.
