As we are an ardent lover of Nature, it became part of our honeymoon trip to choose a few days off the roads and pollution. This was one of the option available apart from Matheran. Had gone through lots of reviews on the net and understood that any other place was nowhere close to this one. We had lots of... More

We went for a weekend from Mumbai with kids and grandparent in the peak of monsoons; and enjoyed almost every moment of our stay. It's a great place to unwind for city kids n parents. Net connectivity is poor; but you are close to nature and that was lovely. We stayed at "nsted machan" was which like a tree house... More

This review was long over due. We visited the machan in Feb 2014, it was awesome experience. We stayed in a forest machan and the view from the room was breathtaking. Food was very good. Overall excellent experience. Looking forward to going again. Kudos to the Machan team for maintaining a great property so well.

A unique sojourn and awesome experience of comfort and hospitality amidst nature and wilderness. We stayed at rightfully, the so called "woods and nested cottages" surrounded by trees. Rooms were aesthetically designed with antique furniture and modern comforts giving you a complete tree house experience. It was beyond imaginations and expectations. Driving through greenery and low clouds was great. Food... More

I visited the Machan with my girlfriend. She had wanted to go there for a long time, and I finally gifted her a stay on her birthday. It's a little difficult to find the place as there are no signs on the road leading up to it, but once we got there, our minds were blown. The rooms are all... More

Perfect place for a weekend getaway from Pune into the nature. Its not like the typical hotels but uniquely designed beautiful rooms which will definitely not disappoint you. Absolutely no noise, just the peaceful nature sounds. Sit in the balcony and sip hot coffee enjoying the amazing view with hot snacks. Lot of privacy assured. Food was also great. Very... More

I went to Machan with my husband last week and it was an awesome experience. We went on a weekday so reached quite easily and fast. This place is best for people who are ok with having no phone connectivity, no internet, no TV and like nature. The rooms are beautifully designed and you wake up to greenery and fog... More

I never expected that Lonavala trip could be such an excellent experience . Machan is a wonderful place if you want to relax. The rooms don't have TV .So no noisy news,old politicians fighting over non issues or old movies . They generate their own energy by wind mills and solar panels. But still there is a lot of scope...
