Machan resort at lonavala is another lovely weekend gateway. Rooms are on expensive side but they are very well done. If you are looking for better view then you can go for Canopy machan otherwise go for forest machan.
Mobile network of reliance works so if you are on any other network don't forget to carry the directions. It's on the way from lonavala to Amby valley. Direction sent by hotel is quite self explanatory. Last few hundred meters are bad jungle road so you can drive your own car or hire a cab. Make sure that you keep the cab there itself. Otherwise you can always come to Lonavala and then take a cab or three wheeler to the resort. It costs about 500 bucks in three wheeler and about 1500 bucks in taxi.
Breakfast is very good. If you take their dinner, that's superb. We had dinner beneath a tree and it was awesome. The whole experience was amazing.
All the wooden cottages are lovely and this place has the least amount of disturbance. Perfect location for a perfect weekend gateway.
