Pine Air Bed & Breakfast offers a unique alternative stay experience and is located on the outskirts of Shillong, 5 minute walk from the Golf course,3 km drive to North East Hills University, in a Residential Neighbourhood of Mawlai Mawroh – directly opposite the Mawroh Community Hall and Indoor Sports Complex.
Pine Air Bed & Breakfast has been established by Bremley Aibannangkiew Blah Lyngdoh, after the house built by his late father Eric Bremley Lyngdoh and mother Dr Iadamon Blah as a residence was gifted to him. In honor of his father, Aiban decided to open the space for various programs and events, both entrepreneurial and social with the main focus being: ‘inspiring to do the right things’.
With a desire to represent the Khasi Hills and the area in general with its numerous pine trees, Pine Air was chosen as the name: giving a forum for the understanding that as with the Dieng Kseh or Pine, all living things are sustained by mother Earth. It is thus the duty of humans to be the stewards, to do the right things; not only to use its provisions responsibly, but to protect, preserve and nourish it. It is with this feeling that Aiban in opening up the property to establish Pine Air Bed & Breakfast, felt the need, in this generation, to usher and create an air of new thinking that promotes action that is responsible, honest, innovative, creative and positive.
A space that initiates and incorporates positive ideas, emotions and creative thought and facilitates the creation of responsible actions that have a direction and purpose to accomplish the right things.
