This was our second visit to the machan and we loved every minute of it.
Ours was a family break and as soon as we entered the machan, the Glass house reminded my aunt of the amazing homes ditty. One should go there with people you know well enough so that night clothes are all ok as the place has 3 flowing rooms with not too many partitions. Along with absolutely the best views one can get anywhere near mumbai, we slept counting stars and woke up to a beautiful sunrise surrounded by the jungle. In fact as its 4 sided glass one doesn't need to go out to nature but nature come in to you, though we did the nature trail in the evening, had our lunch in a little wooded area set up with everything we would need surrounded by whispering ( not willows but) trees. The service is great they went out of their way and met every one of our requests, met the owners and they were really nice people with the guts to follow a lot of what most of us dream of doing.
Just the ideal place to rejuvenate and forget the concrete of mumbai and soak in all the greenery, kudos to the Machan :)
