    Fun & unique but slightly overpriced
    on Jan 7, 2020
    We stayed at the Machan for one night - the location and the surrounding area are truly beautiful! We also really enjoyed the additional experiences offered by the Machan staff, such as the nature trail, star gazing and the Yoga session, and the outdoor shower. The staff was attentive and friendly. However, despite the creative architecture & the unique concept, the room furniture as well as the exteriors could use an upgrade. We also would have expected slightly more in terms of food quality considering the price tag. In addition, the entire stay amounts to less than 24hrs due to early checkout. In summary, it was a fun experience but slightly overpriced given the standards.... More

    Beautiful experience
    on Jan 5, 2020
    The Machan is an experience. Quiet, secluded, hidden and surrounded by beautiful nature—it’s just what you want when you want to escape the city. The architecture is beautiful. The rooms are very tastefully done. The part of the place is the peace and quiet. I love the fact that the rooms don’t have TVs. The Sunset Machan is gorgeous. The view overlooks a valley and is absolutely stunning at night. Though it’s recommended for couples (as it has an outdoor tub and offers complete privacy) it can easily accommodate a group of four. They have two beds at two levels. But please don’t be a loud, noisy bunch and kill the charm of the place. The dinner is not bad, the charming setting will more than make up if you should find it lacking in any way. The breakfast location too is very beautiful but it could definitely be better in terms of service and spread. As the entire resort almost descends on it at one the staff finds it difficult to keep up. All in all The Machan will give you the satisfaction of money well spent. And that is very important because you do have spend quite a lot for it. But there is just one thing which left a bad taste, or should i say bad smell — the bed linen in the rooms smelt of cooking oil smell. When you’re spending so much and you’re in such a beautiful place the last thing you want is a smelly bed. I trust the lovely folks at Machan to take care of it.... More

    The best kept secret of Lonavala
    on Dec 29, 2019
    The most intriguing aspect of our “The Machan” journey is the absence of name itself from all the turning points and direction boards in Lonavala. Interestingly it is missing from it's main entrance gates too. The trip culminated in our realization that the best kept secrets are not meant to announce themselves. They deserve to be discovered, demystified and the experienced and such is The Machan. Once you have experienced it, all you can do is to reminisce and relish it. We were a troupe of 8 people with age group 3 to 70 years and stayed for 2 nights in Starlight Machan. After the gates are opened onto us, we saw is the unpaved and rugged road wide enough to have only one vehicle to pass through it. After carefully negotiating the meandering path opened into a wide and open reception area. A flight of stairs will take you into the wooded reception area , the other side of it opened into a magnificent view of a pond. We had good fortune of watching a snake chasing a frog. We were greeted by some of the most welcoming staff with a genuine and friendly demeanor. My 3-year-old daughter could easily discern the welcome and took their hands into hers and tread along the path. The Machans unwraps itself layer after layer. As we moved along on the paved and rugged track you will come across a world which is quaint but modern, sublime yet unearthly, natural yet perfectly blending into the artificial. All machans are encased in thick layers of trees, bamboos and creepers. A lot of civil engineering has gone into the erecting a stable structure on a slope. We had to cross a wooden bridge in order to reach our Machan. Once we were inside, we came across carefully crafted abode with a collection of comfortable furniture, which perfectly gels into diminutive charm of the nature around. The decks of your abode offer the surreal view of valley below and vast expanse of the hills around. These are the glass houses which have collapsible screens, just in case you need a moment of privacy. Now comes the most remarkable feature – a collapsible glass roof which opens the view of azure sky above. We revived the long-lost activity of star gazing, identifying the constellation and looking at the meteors. Rest assured that you won’t find a speck of dust anywhere and jungle insects too realize that the Machan take the best possible care of the nature to not to harm them, so they also chose to return the favor. The food we taste has a lot to do with the surroundings, the way it is served and the its ingredients. The Machan attempts to bring in the best of each aspect. The breakfast and lunch are served on open deck with trees abutting on all sides. The dinner is served in the central area, tables are lined up under the sky sufficiently distant to offer private but- not-so-private spaces. They organize private bon fire for your troupe where you can have a hearty laugh and engage in open conversation with your dear ones. Once your bon fire is settled and conversations start, they will place candles all around your area. In the dead of night, it gives an impression that the stars have descended on earth. Your choice of starters is served right at the bon fire zone, which enhances the experience multifold. I went to the Machan in eat.sleep.repeat mode, but to those who want to get engaged in some activities, they offer guided forest trek and yoga sessions. The calmness and the stillness that it offers lets you mingle with yourself and helps you hear your voices which gets suppressed in the cacophony of the world we live in. Needless to mention I commit to visit this place with my entire family again and again and again...... More
