We spent our first wedding anniversary and it was a wonderful experience at The Machan. Esp. on our first anniversary it is hard to believe that such a pristine location is just a couple of hours drive from Mumbai. We enjoyed this ecological setup among the dense foliage and tree-tops with an uninhabited view of the valleys. Being with nature in solitude is just so refreshing.
Kudos to the owners for putting this together painstakingly over the years. The management & staff were extremely courteous and made sure our stay was comfortable.
The Canopy Machan with its furnishings, ambiance & setup is a luxurious tent in the sky! Sitting on the Machan deck overlooking the vast expanse of valley ahead, it has been a truly a unique experience words alone cannot describe it just!
Special mention of the ‘wish lantern’ last night. To sum it up, we will be back.... with friends & family.
