Our family of 5 (including my 5-year old daughter) had been to machan for one night.We had booked the forest machan during our stay.
This is the perfect place if you need solace from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy all those wonderful moments with your family.
The location of this hotel is excellent and the views of the valley from the machan are stunning.
They organize nature trail in the property and it is a good one-hour walk to get closer to nature.
The concept of "machan" itself is innovative and it is a hit specially among the kids.
The staff is excellent and responsive to your needs.
My daughter was pretty impressed with the machan design,the ambience and a small waterfall inside the property.
Areas of improvement :
They can improve further on food options for guests by expanding their food menu.
Maintenance inside the machans is required as the wooden doors and windows tend to swell during rainy season.The bath tub metal bushing was not working and we had to get a temporary fix with the help of the hotel staff
