A jem hidden in the jungles off lonavala. The place is beautiful and secluded. It claims to provide that much needed break from the daily sojurns and I did get that in fact. though in the end, it makes u wanting more. The positives- its away from the regular hustle bustle and in fact u will hardly get any coverage... More

It is a good resort, service is good, food is not up to the mark though... And one more thing is that they ask you for a Rs.3000 deposit at the time of check in and if you happen to pay by credit card..then you forget that amount will ever be released... I checked it with my bank on 9th... More

A one-of-its-kind place 'out in the boonies'. The rooms tower above the trees presenting a nice view depending on which Machan you book. A Loft room makes it interesting for the 3rd person. The food is good perhaps some variety could make a difference. The Machan is a place for people to chill. There is simply nothing to do. Poor... More

Went with my family to the Machan . It was a great experience but I think everyone should go in with complete clarity on what they are getting into. First the room; we had booked the jungle Machan which was a two room setting . The room was just spectacular with perhaps the greatest views you can ever see .... More

The Machan is the closest you can get to nature inspite having luxuries next to you. This place is a good get away during monsoons. They have different type of accommodations like the Tree House. There are no TV nor Acs in the villas so you get as close to nature as possible. In the morning you can hear the... More

The machans are luxurious and spacious with views to die for...private, quiet and comfy. Perfect to come with your better/worst half. If you happen to love birds, then book now coz there is a trill everywhere! The food is awesome. Dinner is by candlelight and under the moon... Al fresco The staff is extremely courteous, helpful and knowledgeable. Overall experience... More
