We were on a trip to Lonavala earlier and had explored almost every nook and corner there which involved some good off-roading as well. We had gone to Lonavala the second time and wanted to stay at some place, quite relaxed but set in a jungle environment, just to hear the pleasant sounds of birds and insects and be at the lap of nature. Just like everyone else I had browsed through numerous resorts at Lonavala in TripAdvisor and I wanted to check out The Machan as it was with the highest ratings. The resort is situated in a very remote area which was exactly what we wanted. When you enter the resort you will be warmly greeted by the front office people, briefed about the do's and dont's. The entire setup is like you live deep inside the jungle, with no one around, just gazing at the night sky and valleys below.. we had chosen the sunset machan as it had a rustic feel. Surrounded by trees throughout, walking the pathway to your machan is itself an experience, especially at night. We were provided a torch in the room itself. There is no TV, cell phone signal etc which is indeed a good thing!!! So for people who love complete solitude and the company of nature, this is the place to go. We had good food, relaxed at the room looking outside, there was an open bathtub which is actually worth it. You can turn on some warm water and have a look at the stars while soaking in.. for people who do not like insects coming inside the room, creepy crawly visitors etc, this isn't the place to be. Strictly only for nature lovers!!!! Come here for a complete overhaul of your mind and body

Beautiful and calm place !! Beautiful and calm place !!

After reading a lot about THE machan finally decided to visit there to celebrate my anniversary !! Choose this place only if you are willing to spend quality time with your spouse or family bcoz u won't get mobile networks , no wifi , no Ac . They use wind and solar energy for their electricity . My stay was for 2 days 15-16th of February . I stayed in the forest machan which is the most elevated of all the Machans and has a beautiful jungle view from the top.. it wasn't So difficult for me to reach the place bcoz the address map was quite informative. The moment u reach the main entrance and till the time of ur stay the staff greets u with a BROAD smile. I'll have to stay the staff is the most polite of all the places I visited. My machan was a few meters walk but the path that leads to the forest machan was excellent . That have a suspended wooden bridge made in the jungle which takes me to my machan . Gives a authentic feel of a house in a jungle. Coming to the room , it's one of the most spacious of all the machans and occupies 2 couples comfortable . Mine was a duplex machan ( a wodden wel lit staircase leads to the upper level which has a long size bed ) . The entire machan is made of wood , it has a beautiful huge bathroom with a open air bathing area , a tub and a seperate bathing area as well. Loved the bathroom.. it also has a nice big deck which gives a breathtaking view of the entire forest . Since the walls are made of wood noise passes through easily so noisy neighbours can be a turnoff. Coming to the food , they have a set menu and a seperate a-la-carte only starter menu . So options are limited here but the food is very tasty . Food charges are seperate. I feel the food should be included in the stay package bcoz the room prices are too high anyways . I paid 25 k only for 2 nights room which is high. Also since they have limited activities there they should keep a good stock of board games and books. All they had was ludo snakes and ladders and chess and very few options in books . Ok activity they have a nature walk that takes you in the jungle for an hour , star gazing , and yoga .they should ad indoor games. So carry enough games with you to keep yourself busy. Overall the stay was excellent . I had requested for a chocolate fudge for my anniversary for which I wasn't charged . Thank you for that . Suggestions : Pricing of the room should be atleast 10 percent less and should include food as well. ADD More board games like LIFE , monopoly , taboo, guess who, switcheroo, etc . Add a club house too. 4/5 for rooms 4/5 for cleanliness 4/5 for food 5/5 for staff 3/5 for pricing 3/5 for activities.

It was my 5th wedding anniversary . We stayed in Jungle 1 Machan . The treehouse was a duplex with 2 bathrooms one open shower and one closed . A small fireplace in room . Glass walls make the room more appealing . Amazing experience . We had an anniversary package so it included a private Bon fire with wine, and yea it also included Star gazing . While your stay in machan one should never miss the early morning view right from the room . It will make u feel fresh and energized . Truly worth the money and worth the time .

A nice place to have food that too in affordable and reasonable prices. The place is good. The food quality is also nice and the service provided by the staff is also good. The place is located in a very good location

Machan is a paradise for nature lovers. The lush greenery , beautiful cottages make a special occasion more special. We were there for our 10th anniversary and it sure was amazing. We had requested for a private dinner , it was with an intimate setting for us along with a bonfire and was perfect. There are two things which I would like to point a) considering the price of the rooms the bed linen can be better. It is well past it's use by date B) I do understand that the kitchen is far from the main dining area but the food served at the private dinner was cold. We were told that it cld be warmed up and bought after 10-15 min by which time the breads wld be cold. So if little extra attention can be paid to that. Otherwise awesome place
