This place is located amidst lush green tall trees, surrounded by hills. A serene and tranquil location, head to this place if you are looking for complete privacy, and you want to have a holiday full of relaxation, and when you just want to be lazy while having nothing to do. The rooms (called Machans here) are very well furnished,... More

We chose The Machan for our first night after marriage. It was an adventurous thing considering that we had to drive for almost 3-4 hours to reach the destination, that too after a long wedding day. But believe me, it was all worth it! The Machan is totally an experience based destination, different form all other luxurious stays we know... More

We went there on our mini-moon and it turned out to be the best way to start the journey of our new life together. The staff was extremely warm and friendly and when they found out that we were newly married, they would leave chocolate hampers on our pillows. Their breakfast is to die for!!!! Simply loved it! And we... More

The view from the room is amazing in the morning. The staff is very courteous and good at the work they do. Special mention about the food, simple and tasty.... More

Me and my wife had been to this place on my birthday-16/12/1983 and i have to agree that it is an awesome place for couples. It is a place which can be easily reached by road and if you follow google maps you would not get diverted to any other place. The place is huge with ample parking space available... More

This is a really amazing property, built really well. The wooden machan's are built so well, keeping in mind each and every small detail. The resort is really fantastic, built in a forest. Would definitely recommend it.

Amazing..... Only one word is sufficient to describe the location and the type of the resort. Completely isolated from the rest of the world in spite of very near to Mumbai / Pune. An eco-friendly resort. All of the power required for resort is generated by Solar & wind power. First thing first, its not a common type of resort... More

The Machan is a resort to relax & unwind in the lap of nature. The Machan & its rooms are very spacious that make you feel you are right in the center of the jungle, with well ventilated rooms that make your stay even more pleasant. The staff surely does add value to the charm of the resort, special thanks... More
