Important starting advice for me was not to expect an African game park. For one, the elephants were friendly and you could ride them - this was one of the highlights. There were deer and a rhinoceras, and some water brids. Not much else in the way of large game except for the regular comments that this ranger or that...

Arrival at the resort after travelling in India was a huge contrast. The rooms are in two up two down blocks. They are of fairly basic but adequate standard with all the necessary facilities. The food again was simple but adequate with very friendly staff. The Wifi (sorted out during our stay) was free and excellent. The highlight was the...

We stayed in Machan Paradise for one night only. Experience was so terrible that we reached the place at about 2.00 pm and left at about 7.00 am the next morning. Elephant safari was the only saving grace. The hotel photographs of which are shown at the internet is different from the one where we were made to stay. One...

We stayed for two nights at Machan Paradise View (a series of two up two downs) as part of our honeymoon and really enjoyed it! While the room was basic, it was clean and the food provided was again basic but good quality. The staff went out of their way to help us, including arranging an extra dawn elephant safari...

We had to order early for items outside regular menu. Couldn't have expected better at such a secluded place. Very clean kitchen. Staff was helpful, punctual and courteous.

Terrible resort. Room facilities worn out and dirty. Towels & sheets were grey and thin. Heater did not work in the middle of nite and room became awfully chilly. No toiletries provided and room smelled as if not opened for some time. Staff tried their best to fix lights and provide service but over all bare basic accommodation. Food acceptable.

This lodge is very basic but the wildlife makes the stay worthwhile (although we did have a rat in our bedroom that was not welcome). The food is very good and something for everyone.

I'm slightly confused here so I'm not surprised if you are too... Could it be that some of the contributors here are talking about different establishments? My comments relate to Machan Paradise View, which is a cluster of five two storey chalets (each two up, two down) with no swimming pool or tented accommodation. It's a great location and we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Machan we offer you an arrangement that promises exceptional vistas of the Royal Chitwan National Park, and days full of exciting adventure. Machan Wildlife Resort is our luxury camp in the eastern part of Chitwan. It has the charm and beauty of a deep-forest retreat inside the Royal Chitwan National Park, with all the amenities and services of a class hotel. Complementing this well-known resort, a new hotel under our care is only an hour’s drive ride away towards the western edge of the Park. We call it Paradise View, reflecting its spectacular setting along a riverbed, across the tall trees of the jungle. Our new addition comprises of 20 rooms in 5 separate bungalows. The conference hall is unique among the Chitwan lodges and caters to a hundred participants. Paradise View is also ideally located close to the Park Headquarter and the Gharial Breeding Farm. Nearby also lie the serene Tamar and Lami Lakes. Visit to the Park Museum can be an eye opener. A few days in each location guarantees the wildlife enthusiast an optimal number of wildlife sightings, allows discovery of different ecosystems and landscapes of the beautiful plans of south Nepal, besides offering a selection of comfortable and relaxing accommodation. Safari on elephant back is one of the most exciting rides one can experience in the jungle. The Greater One-horned rhinoceros is a familiar sight here. Common langurs, four species of deer, sloth bear, wild boar and many other mammals are found within the jungles of Chitwan. But there’s a lot more to safari camps than just wildlife sightings. We take you on village walk where you gain insights into the rich culture of the ethnic people. Watch their enchanting folk dances - or even join them in their merriment. A silent canoe ride gives you the luxury of catching wildlife by surprise. Or go on a refreshing bird-watching trip. Chitwan plays host to more than 532 species of birds - pick them out in our checklist. ... more   less
